Next time we should choose a place with a nice grass strip...
I actually have my airplane over it Southbridge now 3B0. What time are you guys arriving at Barnes? I think I'll make the 12-minute journey over to join you.
I'd be coming about five mins from over at 7B2 but sadly I can't make it

If I leave now I can probably make it by Sunday....
Make Tucson your first refueling stop and we'll fly formation all the way there. We can moon each other* from time to time to break the monotony.
*in a non-homophobic way of course.
Yes, a (semi) Cajun restaurant named Belle's. (The scene of Eamon Mackenzie's Jerk Chicken Incident, for those with long memories....) It hasn't been there for a long time. And Eamon got hired to fly commercially and has not been around much at all the last few years....The replacement for Belle's - now also gone apparently, was also in the terminal building at FOK. The new place - The Apron Cafe - is not located in the terminal building, but instead is on Cook Road, a very short distance away.
This information comes from Google Maps, I haven't been there in a while. I hope the info is wrong. Runway side picnic tables were a fun place to eat your breakfast/lunch.
noonish. Think the reservation is for 12:30.
Switched me up to 267ND.
Agreed...grass is my vote for next one
Have never seen a full length take off for GA aircraft. More than enough runway .
I have a lot of practice screwing up landings so I'm sure I'd win in at least one category
just saw this. turbo eddie R44 ct62.
http://www.fly2lunch.com great food site.
see you there.
That's cool Eddie.
Looks like severe clear this weekend...
Lancair is having flap motor replaced, can't swing it. Otherwise, might have flown with one of the kids.
Next time around, humbly suggest 121 Cafe at OXC as a contender. Great food, lots of space, easy airport: http://121atoxc.com/
Got called in for a trip so it doesn't look like I'll be able to make it
Shouldnt have told us. Should have come in the new plane and used a deep manly voice. Now we'll be sure to judge your landing in excrutiating detail when we hear you on the radio.
well, they just switched me up yet again, so you can guess at this point
We will still be watching for you in the Pilatus.
You'll know me by my inverted landing.
Just for kicks -
POA Meet Up Map!
Wasn't sure where TurboEddie was coming from, so I stuck him at KBAF.
Maroon planes = Cessnas, Blue = Pipers, Black = Unknown... Azure is in her car up in VT
Right now, looks like we have about 14 or so people coming... not bad.
That map is pretty cool...not bad at all for the 1st one in these parts!
Really looking forward to Sunday. It will be good to put some faces with names of some of my "internet friends" as my wife teases me about...hehe
Depending how I feel tomorrow, I may or may not make a surprise appearance on Sunday.
We would be honored. Hoping you could make it.
Honored? You certainly don't know me very well.
You're just coming to troll!!!
I'll wear a Falcons hat.
Pretty neat map! I noticed you have N/A for my name. I guess I haven't mentioned it on this forum for a while... so FTR it's Liz.
Hi! Sorry, I'm still newish, so I wasn't sure. I fixed it. Look forward to meeting you!
No problem, and thanks!
I'm assuming here https://www.airnav.com/airport/CT62 according to his post above.
Wasn't sure what CT62 was... heliport... got it.
Where is the restaurant located? It wouldn't called "The Runway at Barnes" would it? According to Google, it's permanently clossed.
There is a new one that's been there for a year or so- http://pappsbarandgrill.com/
It is right in the main terminal building. Just tell ground you are going to the restaurant and they will direct you to parking.
T-storms here today, through tomorrow, so there will be no surprise visit.....or will there?!?!?
I'm going to wear my sht-kickers just in case.
For anyone who has driven to KBAF... anything in particular I should know about parking there?

The main terminal is at 100 Airport Rd, Westfield, MA 01085. Although it looks like a big airport, in reality the main GA terminal area and parking is quite small.
Thanks. See everyone tomorrow, noonish.
