Maule and All Factory Fly In 2020

Post by bobguhr »

FYI It looks like the Maule and All 2020 factory fly in will be taking place at Spence Airfield (KMUL) in Moultrie, GA Sept 24-27, 2020.
Brent is thinking about a pig roast, fly out, factory tours and informal STOL and flour bombing competition fun. Hope to see a good turn out.

Howdy Bob,

I'm planning on going down a few days early, to checkout NC, SC & maybe North Fl. Need a warmer place in the winter with an airstrip (grass). NY winters haven't been like the old days, not enough cold and snow, just sloppy conditons, which doesn't allow much activity. Does anyone have suggestions for a good locations/strips to visit?

It's been approx. 7-yrs. since been at Maule. Looking forward to the trip.

Hope to see a big turnout! :D

Tom

Bummer,

I have a trip over those days. If I can dump or swap the trip I will be there. Sounds like fun.

Howdy Bob,

Thanks for the tip on Pik n Pig, l'll put that one on my list to stop in at. That's in the area where I plan to be as well. :(

Is there any other suggested special worthwhile places to visit in the NC / SC / GA / N. FL areas, or on the way down from CNY?

I'm sure some of you local guys have some favorites that you might like to share???

Bob, thanks for sharing the event link too!

Tom

Old Piper, Van Sant airport (9N1) in Erwinna PA is a nice grass strip to visit on your way down to Moultrie: http://www.vansantairport.com/. I think it's close to your route. Beautiful grass strip, nice museum and good practice for landing on side slopes.

Hi Andy,

That's the type of Airport / Air Strip I'm looking for. Ones like that is just far enough that allows for stretching the legs along the way, while getting some aviation history! Who knows, maybe I can get my second ride in a glider too!

Now I need to find something in VA or WVA as well. It'll be nice to have a route all planned out with these special unique stops along the way. Food locations are always welcome too!

Thanks Tom

Tom,

Probably mentioned before but BQ1, Carthage, NC has an outstanding restaurant on the field. PicknPig is the name. Checkout the website as they are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays I believe.

Tom, a unique airstrip in the western part of VA is Bryce Resort (VG18) in Basye VA. Here's their website: https://bryceresort.com/. Airnav's information is at https://www.airnav.com/airport/VG18. They have a 2,240' x 50' paved runway in a valley close to the West Virginia border. They have a pretty good restaurant and a nice 18-hole golf course within walking distance of the airstrip. If you land on Rwy 23, your final approach will be level with the condo decks. I've sometimes seen people on their decks drinking wine while they watch the landings. If you land on Rwy 5, you might fly right over golfers before touchdown. There's a small ski area with a lift there, too.

One of my best memories of my father-in-law was when he and I landed there in my Maule with our golf clubs, walked over to get a golf cart and played 18 holes of golf on a beautiful fall day. There were very few people on the golf course but there were people skiing in bathing suits on the man-made snow.
