The weather is changing and becoming excellent to fly. Time to exercise our birds and get them ready for the fly-in season, along with ourselves. Get out there and knock the rust off your flying skills and have FUN!!! Remember, we have our big Swift fly-ins to look forward to with the West Coast Swift National at Westover Field KJAQ 9-11 June 2017and Swift National in Cleburne, TX, KCPT Oct 4-8. Please plan on attending one or both of these fly-ins.

We have a great time with Swift fellowship and camaraderie at this fly-in—looking forward to seeing you.
Swift National Oct 4-8
The RRSW is hosting Swift National at Cleburne, TX, KCPT. More info will be forthcoming in the next several months. Put on your calendar and plan to attend.
From Steve Wilson:
We are moving along on the preparation for the Swift Flyin at Cleburne, TX 10/4 thru 10/8/2017. The following are motels we have booked rooms:
Our Hospitality Room will be at the Hampton Inn where we have booked 40 rooms presently. We are hopeful that we can get more. We also have booked 40 rooms at the Holiday Inn Express about a city block from the Hampton Inn.
We will have a service that will serve both locations with transportation to and from the airport. We also have made arrangements with Enterprise Car Rental for pickup and return of cars at the airport for those who would like to have their own vehicles. Yes, it is early; however, I suggest that you start booking rooms now, to avoid any disappointment later. You can always cancel! Be certain to mention that you are with the Swift group to get the special rate. Here are the local numbers for these:
Hampton Inn, 817-641-7770
Holiday Inn Express, 817-641-5300
Enterprise car rental, 817-645-6996
Legend of Flight Pancake Breakfast
The Legends of Flight Museum puts on a pancake breakfast the fourth Saturday of the month, April thru October. See flyer.
This is a nice get together with a wide variety of aircraft to peruse. I would encourage you to attend.
