these are not sponsored events just gathering that have occurred year after year for decades:)

2014 Schedule
(Most, if not all, will be repeated in 2015)

April Work Party (TBA at a later date)
The weather is improving and it's time to spruce up the site. Generally, this is a gathering of club members who don't mind volunteering time/labor/money to improve conditions at the site.

Here's our tentative work itinerary;
General cleanup of the site
Replace missing or tattered windsocks
Remove starthistle in the Buttonhook LZ and clear any bushes that have returned since last year.
Please Note: This work party is conducted thru our use permit and with advanced notice to the FS. It is illegal for pilots or the public to alter/repair/etc., the physical site. If you have a project or maintenance you feel is necessary, please contact us.

This work party occurs annually and is open to any club or individual who wants to help. Flying won't be interrupted! For more details and how you can help, email here.

The July Hat Creek Volunteer Fire Department BBQ (07/19)
This annual event occurs the 3rd Saturday of every July. Lots of fun, games and great food. It's not a long weekend but if you can make it you'll find flying conditions great (as usual in the summer) and you will be supporting a great cause. Can't say for sure how many pilots will be here but you won't be alone, that's for sure.
