    Default Annual CubCrafters Northeast STOL Basin Harbor (B06)

    Hi Gang
    How about a 3rd annual Northeast STOL, is it too soon to find somebody to beat Jim Crane? I think we all should endeavor to TRY. In ski racing its called "Try & Wanna" You will try and you wanna win.


    The early risers are invited to Mountain Bob's for a breakfast of epic proportions, I offered to pay him and he said "NO WAY! Just bring all the airplanes you can find." I do ask we make a donation for this. So Join up at Mountain Bob's place (Brown 1VT8)



    From there we head to Basin Harbor B06 for the STOL. Practice from 9-10:15 and then STOL starts at 10:30. Lets have a bunch of competitors regardless of experience or airplane. Here is a clip from last year:

    This is a great event and one that is growing. We even scheduled around Hampton Flea Market Fly in to avoid certain push back from certain people who certainly have certain opinions. baaaahaaa haaa haaaa. I'm still crying
    After the STOL, we can all gather at the Red Mill for lunch for those interested and then do some local flying in the area. We can drop in to Symon's 66VT he should have his new Carbon Cub ready to roll and then if I can get permission, we will visit Chip Mather on the lake at Cub Field 47VT. (you will like that one)


    As always, we will have CCi prizes and a newly designed traveling trophy to go along with the bragging rights. Come one, come all and tell your friends in all the forums and online. We want ALOT of planes! Good luck and who knows, I might throw my hat in the ring this year.



    Cheers to flying
    Mark

    Hi Mark - I'd like to fly up from Newport, RI for the Basin Harbor event. Any recommendations on hotels in the area? Looks like Basin Harbor hotel/resort is closed until May 10th.

    Whoops... I screwed up. I looked at the 2018 date (not 2019). So bummed!! I'm traveling on the 25th (the new date).

    As mentioned elsewhere,
    Should anyone be interested you are most welcome to stay at 66VT. All you will need is a bed roll and tie downs. Our bunk room will accommodate four, others will need a mattress. We are approximately 20 miles south of Basin Harbor. Fuel at 6B0 12 mile east.

    Picked up this little beauty today. Itís not much but the Northeast STOL Champion will be lauded by his/her peers. This will be a traveling trophy and each year it may be passed on. Or maybe not. Hope to see all you there 5/25/19 at B06. Basin Harbor. Breakfast for the early bunch at Browns

    ITS ON! Folks we have been given the use of Harris Field (83K) which is just East of Glens Falls. Its South of Basin Harbor but not real far. It works better for those from the South. Traffic is right hand for runway 4 and left hand for 22. Please do not fly over the homes west of the field. We will be on 122.9

    The Rain has killed the Basin Harbor plan. We will have a Grill there, table chairs etc. etc coffee, donuts, hamburgs, hot dogs etc etc for the lunch crowd. We hope all will attend and look forward to a great event. Bring that STOL A Game!

    Any concerns or question, call or text me 518-410-9404

    Looks like about a 24 hour weather window to get it done but it looks pretty good for Saturday. Looks like closest fuel is in KGFL? Who has the local knowledge on fuel price?
    Really hoping to be wing man on that new Vermont cub Saturday morning. If the weather gods allow me to leave the Maine-The Monsoon State

    Also be advised Joe and I fully prepared to bitchslap anyone who comes near us wearing a polo shirt with the collar turned up. Unless itís a girl, joe says we canít touch them
