Did anyone check with the airshow airport folsk and see if they would just let us all land there instead? Seems it would add a bit of flavor to their show to have a bunch of Skymasters fly in for the show...they might even extend show courtesy type items to our pilots. Just a thought.

Already checked with the airport but not with powers to be. I suppose one could run the idea higher up the flagpole. I think they have their airshow schedule in place. I really don't think a bunch of GA pilots in Skymasters is a real show stopper for them. Would be if I was running things but for this show probably not. But never say never, if someone wants to make a stab at it, go for it! Maybe Skymasters are more unique than some of us think.

Web Links re: Branson Airport and Air Show

The new Branson Airport website (KBBG) is:

www.flybranson.com

and the link for the air show is:

www.bransonairshow.com.

Great information on both sites.

KPLK is actually closer to Branson but I haven't heard what the plan is for it when Branson opens up. I imagine it is far enough away from KBBG that it would be enticing for smaller GA aircraft to continue landing there.

Rooms still available

I just checked with the hotel in Branson and as of today there are still rooms available but they are NOT holding any rooms for SOAPA. If you haven't booked your room yet call now to secure a room.

417-334-6464 or 1-800-828-0404

All the room rates are still the same as listed on the home page link.

Discount Tickets for Shows in Branson

Here is a link to a website that has discounted tickets for shows in Branson. Not all shows are listed so check other Branson websites for a specific show you might be looking for. Friday night might be a good night to reserve tickets for a show.

There are still 9 rooms left at the Best Western in Branson. This is the location of the 2009 SOAPA Event. Come join us, sign up now. We have a number of aircraft coming in and will be at the same airport as the US Pilots Association and the Missouri Pilots Association. They are all really excited about seeing the Skymasters arrive.

These rooms won't last long with all the events that weekend.

Hi Herb,

A question for you about the fly-in in Branson. I would love to attend however my work schedule is highly variable so commitment is quite challenging for me sadly. At the moment it looks as though I will have off on Thursday 5/7/09. My question is; IF the hotel still has a room available and IF they were willing to allow flexibility in terms of last minute cancel (neither of which I have verified yet), would it cause you or the SOAPA any hardship if I were to plan to attend Thursday however with at least a 50/50 chance of cancelling at the last moment if work schedule changes? If this were to not cause any problem as far as you are concerned, I would look into it. If it does cause potential complications for you or the group, I would not bother even attemting.

Thanks,

Ed Asmus

That's just fine

Come on down, we will prorate the fee. Just check with the hotel to be sure you have a room.
