    Hello,

    Attention, all Board Members and general members, Attention!

    We have space for plenty of vehicles as well as carriers as well as overnight parking. For reenactors or those bringing vehicles for the event, there is no admission fee to attend. I don't know the price for general admission off the top of my head - it's set by Pioneer Park, not those of us coordinating the event. If that's something you'd like me to check into, please let me know. I'm not sure if you're promoting this within your group or in general. Either one is greatly appreciated!


    If you have any specific questions from your group who are thinking about attending, please let me know. They can do some camping on site, and there are also some hotels in Annandale but I haven't looked into setting up anything with hotels yet. If there is interest in that, I'm happy to do some research.

    Can you tell me a little more about your group and what they are looking for? Where are y'all coming from? Do you typically camp? Set up displays? What do you enjoy doing when attending events?


    Both Robert Clouse rob@travelingwithrob.com and I are on this email thread, are happy to answer any questions.

    I typically only check this email outside of my work hours (M-F 8am-5pm) but sometimes I have some extra time on my hands. We can get you a flyer - just give us a few days (I have to figure out if the guys already have one).

    Thanks,

    Historic Stanton Airfield

    We make it easy to join us, do it!

    Good day All.

    Attention, all Board Members and general members, Attention!

    Click image below to read more.

    Join in!

    Historic Stanton Airfield is a privately-owned, public-use airport located 35 miles south of the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport on Highway 19, halfway between Northfield and Cannon Falls. Pilots from all over the Midwest come to Stanton for the nostalgic feel, open skies, friendly atmosphere and to experience some of the greatest grass runway flying in the Midwest. We are home to the Minnesota Soaring Club, Twin City Barnstormers, and Stanton Squadron of Civil Air Patrol.

    Stanton is Home to the Minnesota Soaring Club and a Civil Air Patrol Squadron (507) 645-4030

    Stanton Airfield is a privately owned/public use airfield. A corporation was formed in 1991 by local pilots and tenants utilizing the airfield and shares were sold. In fact, shares are available to anyone interested in owning a part. The airfield is privately owned and we receive no assistance from the township, county or state.

    Since we receive no assistance, we have difficulty generating funds to make necessary repairs on the building; therefore, we are using this event as a fundraising event for the airfield and the Civil Air Patrol squadron based here.

    Unfortunately, our aerobatic performers were unable to get the FAA waiver; therefore, the airshow will not take place. Since this is a fly-in, we hope that some unique aircraft will arrive and be on display. There will be a glider operation taking place during the event in addition to the various aircraft landing and taking off.  We have a couple of bands scheduled to play and food will be available.

    If we know in advance how many and what types of equipment you are able to display, we can set aside an area for your group. We are in a position to offer those of your members who bring vehicles and equipment a complimentary meal.

    Any donations of items, services or monies for the raffle or silent auction are tax deductible through the Friends.

    I have included some links below that may help to explain what and who we are plus our event flyer. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to give me a call.

    Best regards,

    Jay A. Biggs,

    workshop at the 2024 convention in
    Wisconsin this 
    September

    We make it easy to join us, do it!

    Attention, all Board Members and general members, Attention!

    Robert Brough and I am President of the Georgia MVPA, an affiliate of the International Organization. I have been asked to lead a workshop at the 2024 convention in Wisconsin this September. The purpose of it is to generate a forum for state affiliate representatives to get together for an hour and network to discuss issues that concern all affiliates. This will not be a bitch session about what is not working for the hobby or the affiliates, but, rather, an opportunity to see what other affiliates are doing in their state that might be working well.

    Suggested topics might be insurance issues, club structure and organization, exchange of affiliate newsletters, events and membership concerns, etc. My end goal would be if each affiliate representative left the workshop with one thought or idea that might prove beneficial to another affiliate, then the time would be well spent. I do not have a set time or location for this workshop yet, but it would probably be on the Friday of the convention as Saturday is usually devoted to the MVPA general membership meeting and the awards dinner.

    So, if you are the correct person for this email, great. If not, if you can forward it to the person or persons in your organization that might find it of interest, then please share the correct contact person to my email rbrough7@comcast.net

    If you think you might have a club member who would represent your affiliate at this workshop, please let me know so that we can guesstimate numbers. If you think no one will be able to attend, but you would like the notes or minutes of the workshop afterwards, let me know that as well. And, if you think of some topics that you would like addressed that I have not suggested, send those to me as well.

    Either way, I would like to believe that this is the start of a regular workshop that can be held at every MVPA International Convention for affiliates to network and learn from each other and grow the hobby from the state level on up.

    Have an “eventful” 2024 and hope to see you in Wisconsin in September.

    Robert Brough
    President, GA MVPA
    Winston, GA
