Latest from Roy Smith. (posted 24 April)

Hi again folks,
Well, at times like this, things can move fast. Despite the decision not to cancel the Spring Opener, I have now found out that the airfield is closed to the public. The website is:-
and the telephone # is (585) 243-2100

If anyone is thinking of going there for some trimming it would be best to check the website, and maybe call ahead - although the phone doesn't seem to be manned very much of the time at the moment. I also don't know how they interpret membership in the museum - if I am a member am I still a member of the public?

One more point - it has been pointed out to me that the AMA FF NATS (Muncie) has NOT been cancelled.
Thermals, Roy
