Can’t make it. Will be in San Diego playing Navy.
eh, figure since I'll already be there, might as well check this out on sunday after breakfast:
"September Safety Topic of the Month - Stablized Approach and Go Around"
Topic: The outreach will emphasize the best practices regarding stabilized approaches and go around techniques.
On Sunday, September 16, 2018 at 11:00 Eastern Daylight Time

The air carrier industry has embraced stabilized approach concepts as a means to ensure safe operations during critical phases of flight. Airline flight crews are trained and tested on establishing and maintaining stabilized approaches and to immediately initiate a go around if stabilized approach criteria are not met. This has led to a dramatic decrease in approach and landing mishaps. General aviation pilots can also increase the safety of their approach and landing operations by adhering to stabilized approach criteria. At this outreach, we will discuss:
the magnitude of approach and landing mishaps
the benefits of stabilized approach and landing operations.
and best practices for exercising the go around option.
We will also encourage pilots to make stabilized approaches and to go around if stabilized approach criteria are not met.
Is that BQ1, Gilliam-McConnell Airfield?
Luscombe's annual is scheduled for 9/15.
I’m a strong maybe.
What time are peeps arriving? I'm thinking of going, but just for the day. Lunch? Dinner? Both and then late night drinking?
I'm signed up for a 5K that morning, but that's at 7:30 am, so not a problem for even being there before lunch. There's also an Angel Flight mission to Savannah; haven't signed up for it yet.
So, looking at options.

Where are people staying on a Home Game weekend?
dunno what time yet, I'd guess in the 3-5pm range. certainly before the TFR kicks in which I think will be around an hour before gametime.
I did Airbnb, the place is about 1.5 miles from KCUB.
Skate park?, now that is interesting.... (been wondering if there were any of those within walking(rolling)distance from an airport)
Looks like I'm out, due in large part to the Winchester trip I mentioned in another thread.
I’m heading to Triple Tree this morning, I’m the guy with the khaki hat and blonde 6yo daughter. Probably do some fishing.
Edit 9/10/18 - it was a lot of fun, but SUPER hot the whole time. We saw a lot of awesome planes. Also we caught a lot of fish.
less than one week until the washout, uh, hurricane, I mean the KCUB brew-n-breakfastfest. I told my Airbnb I'd make the call on Wednesday, even though I technically have until Thursday.
Ok, who forgot to pay for the good weather?
Looks like I am out.. not only because a hurricane is potentially bearing down on us, but because the flightschool cancelled all reservations past wednesday...
The nerve of them....
Just for a hurricane? Sheesh. It might not even make it to Cat 5.
Yeah, I'm going to be watching it too. Forecast is for beautiful sunny weather in Atlanta this coming weekend, but Scattered TS in Columbia.
Look on the bright side. Everyone flying from north to south will have a great ground speed!
Sometimes you just gotta go with the Flo.
Oh frack yeah, gotta say no to that Flo.
Are we ready to call it yet? I kind of feel like the right thing to do is free up my hotel room for someone fleeing the coast.
I have to agree.
Room canceled. Another time.
DAMN YOU FLORENCE....
I should be on my way down to Columbia right now.... but noooooo, you had to come to the east coast....
A glamour shot can make even my butt look good.
Just have to make due with some beer, babe, and breakfast from where you are at. You did plan an alternate, right?
@eman1200 , isn’t it about time for you to leave for the Brewery? You should be fine!
you're right, I think I see an opening!
Here's your beer back.
Ive heard of "beer goggles," but what's a "beer back?" Maybe it's a good thing this trip was postponed . . . .
AOPA has rotten timing. They sent me an email today with a link to this story.
Rubbing salt in my wounds, I tell ya.
3 pages deep and I don’t see any jokes about Aunt Flo coming to town.
Would ya ???
He is a progressive type of guy.
don't be surprised at what I'd do for cheaper car insurance
This is definitely a trip to reschedule.
So, anyone want to reschedule for the next hurricane? I might be back on line by then.
