    It's actually not too bad when you aren't part of a mob.

    $30.00 covers the view and company, the $8.00 covers the meal.

    I finagled my way out of my other commitment.

    I'm in!

    Just for Sunday brunch though.

    See ya there!

    (oh...and any idea of what time Sunday brunch will be?)

    Yay! I'm glad you'll be there! :)

    Tim, they offer the Sunday Brunch from 10:00 until 2:00. I don't know what time Lynn has in mind. She's the boss of this cattle drive. :D

    If I'm taking Lynn for an aerobatic ride, we'll go before she eats a lot. :D

    Wooo Hoooo @ Tim! And I am completely open as to the time we meet for brunch at the restaurant... I'm thinking closer to 10am than later though, at least that is what seemed to work out better for most people in the two years I have been there before.

    And Diana... I may not eat the entire weekend before we fly... just in case. :eek: :yikes: :hairraise:

    :D Well, actually, it's typically better to have a little something bland in your stomach before you do aerobatics. :)

    Well, I can easily be there by 10am so I'll plan on that but "whenever" is just fine by me for actually eating.

    Re: Gaston's in October 2011

    :D I just got my cottage confirmation and Saturday night dinner tickets in the mail today! :D I also found out that there is still room at the inn for anyone who wants to spend the weekend... or just the day.

    Base leg for 24 at 3M0. :D Wooo hoooo!

    There's also a fly-in at the Valley Airport (61AR) on Saturday:

    October 1 -- Flippin, AR – Valley Airpark (61AR) Third Annual Valley Airpark Fly-in @ 5:00 PM. Approach mid field from north to a right downwind for 10 or a left downwind to 28. Information: Ed Ludtke (edwardludtke@gmail.com)

    Just a heads up that there will be more traffic than normal in the area if it's a nice day and it might be a place to visit for those who will be there on Saturday.

    It's like, what, 27 feet down the river from Gaston's?

    Okay, serously, 2.7 miles. You'll use more gas taxiing and doing your run-up than you will flying there!

    I really don't get the 5pm time of this fly-in though. Wonder if that's a typo?

    Do take aerials if you fly over us :D Have an added 2000 acre project about 1.5 miles east of MU24 and the 5000' runway is being excavated currently. Hope to be part of the poker run in 2012 with a 5000' asphalt runway :goofy:

    Hey, you're back! :) Where have you been?

    Is there still going to be a grass runway in addition to the paved runway?

    Been busy with alot of marketing stuff, websites, airshows and this huge new project :D. We still have the 2000' grass runway on Brass Lantern Airpark but will have a grass runway beside the asphalt one on Spirit Hill Airpark. We have 30 days to make a decision on the size and layout and need input from all of the tail draggers and those who prefer grass runways. So the more feedback the better :thumbsup:

    BUMP to top... it's still not too late to have a fun weekend in the grass at Gaston's Resort! :D There will be lots of fun flying, a wine tasting Saturday afternoon, and then the chef's dinner at the restaurant in the evening. And don't forget the famous Sunday brunch with the chocolate fountains and 10 different kinds of dessert the next day. Sharon B., Brook, and Christopher, Nikki, and I will be in Cabin 71 near the approach end of 24... please stop on by. In the parking area, my airplane is a bright purple and white Archer II. The weather is advertised to be near perfect all weekend... and it really don't get no better than that for a fly-in! :D

    It was good to see you again, Brook. :)

    It was a great weekend. :yes:

    Next time I fly down to Gaston's in October, I think I'll go on the third weekend when the trees are peaking...it's even prettier then. :)

    :D I'll go fix it. :D

    I love that little smile that Tim has on his face in that photo. Makes me wonder what he was thinking (or seeing). :D

    Funny thing...yesterday, Sue and I both got text messages at the same time from our husbands saying they were going flying in the Citabria. :)

    :D On second thought, I'll just use my imagination. ;)

    BTW, I got several shots of your airplane, but most were out of focus or not centered.

    Here is one of you climbing out, and a few more photos.
