Field is Open
There is a “Wildlife Feed” event this Friday (September 17) at Little Oaks Park. Their ticket sales indicate a larger than expected turn out and will require OCMA for overflow parking. This is why the fencing is still in place from the Brew Ha Ha. The same arrangement will provide that parking and allow OCMA to keep the fixed wing runway open. Expect the rotary wing area to be closed Friday, for the day.
There are also two large events at James Events this weekend. A large company picnic on Saturday and a Car Show on Sunday. Both events will be at Little Oaks park adjacent to the airfield. We will not be needed for parking but there will be additional traffic on Haul Rd all weekend. The airfield will remain open for normal flight operations all weekend. Please mind the western flight boundary and stay well clear.
Finally, there is a Mud Run next Saturday, September 25. They also have larger than expected ticket sales. More information about this event next week as the event nears. Potential is partial to full field closure for the day. People are really wanting to get out and live again!
What is required to fly at OCMA 2021 and beyond:
Safety Officers, Field Marshals and BoD Officers have the authority to verify. Aircraft not displaying the proper FAA number will not be allowed to fly until they do. We are assuming you all have your AMA information inside your aircraft which has always been required by AMA.
Air space boundaries!
It is extremely important that we all fly within our defined airspace AT ALL TIMES. There have been a number of occasions recently that our aircraft have been observed well outside our boundaries. By that I mean over the river to the north and up the valley well past our eastern boundary. If you have difficulty judging this, please use a spotter. Fly within the tree line to the west and east, use the oak tree across the field as your northern boundary. Using this as your guide, you will be flying inside our agreed airspace. A map of our airspace ison the bulletin board at the field and at the link below.
