    All the major ones are over in Florida, so it’s tough to attend. Probably the only ones I’d have time to get to would be AOPA’s Fly-In in Livermore, CA in June. Maybe OSH if the stars and budget align.

    I’m going to try to make the Beech Party in 19 if my work schedule will allow. It’s a great time and yes, they are welcoming to non-Beech owners.

    Went to SnF and Tripple Tree this year, will hopefully make it again in 2019.

    I've bought a weeks pass for Oshkosh 2019 to push myself to actually go, as of right now I haven't figured out transportation though

    Need more in the northeast... there was a biplane fly-in in PA last year which I hope happens again and the Simsbury, CT one in the fall is a good one.

    That grass looks nicer then some of the asphalt places I have landed. None the less I’ve never landed on grass. I’ll go up with my CFI one day and make it a point to do it a few times. Looks cool.

    I had never landed on grass before and really never intended to in my plane, OTHER than triple tree. It was a total non-issue after the fact, just basically did a mostly normal landing. obviously tried to hold the nose wheel off. I'm glad I did it, would go there again, but still don't really have any desire to start landing on other grass strips in my plane.

    No other grass strip you would practice in will be as nice and smooth as triple tree.

    Ive played many a golf course that would give much to have fairways as nice as triple tree’s runway.

    In fact, I’ve played courses whose greens weren’t as nice as triple tree’s runway.

    It’s the Groom Lake of grass strips.

    Rough River and 6Y9, would love to get back to Gaston's, but may have Sx on the left shoulder this fall and may need the vaca time for that.

    And, Challenged, everyone's landing is commented on, but all in good fun. I think they held up score cards for my landing at 6Y9 in 2013, but the landing was so good they just put them down and walked away!!!! That's my story and I'm stickin to it.

    You mean your family is going to be in the Dells, and you're going to be at Oshkosh. :p

    You should spend one day in the Dells, and bring the family to Oshkosh for a day. I do the latter half of that each year.

    As for me, I'll definitely be at Oshkosh, hope to be at Rough River and Gaston's, will try to make the FlyBQ if it happens this year, and might do a more local one like the Washington Island Fish Boil or something. I won't be at SnF or any of the AOPA ones unless I win the Powerball and retire.

    Previous posters have been pretty heavy on opportunities in the SE (plus Oshkosh). I'm waiting to see some interesting plans for fly-ins out west. I prefer gatherings that are off the beaten path. I think I'll attend the High Sierra fly-in on the Dead Cow dry lakebed in Nevada this year after skipping it since 2015. That usually happens in October. I'll likely do the old-time flyin at Concrete, WA and I'm looking forward to backcountry gatherings in Idaho's River of No Return Wilderness area. Yeah, most wilderness areas outlaw motorized vehicles, but Idaho designated grass runways in their wilderness as "trailheads". Pretty darned cool!

    We in the SE POA contingent need to all pick a day during TT to be there and get together.

    I'm also tempted to go there next month for the Chili fly-in.

    I haven't been to the Reading (PA) airshow in a long time. I think I want to get there this spring.
    Everything else is up in the air. (pun intended)
