This will be the first ever Yooper Looper, the T-shirt will be a collector's item. With the cancelation of AirVenture we decided to reschedule to July 24-26, we should all be ready for some fun by then.
Key points include long term waiver within the KSAW Class D airspace (check out the image below), free hangar, discounted fuel, home hosting if desired - no motels, ground transportation, extremely supportive tower and airport management, amazing Boreal FBO support, media coverage, and more. For our Canadian friends, although SAW is named "International" there is no Customs available, please don't let that deter you.
If you would like to take advantage of the home hosting and Yooper hospitality contact Roger at 906-250-3231 (cell/text) or bentlage(at)tds.net and let him know the night(s), male/female, and if a couple. He will do his best to accommodate you.
If you would rather stay in a motel the Ramada Inn (http://www.ramadamarquette.com/) is in Marquette and a 3/4 mile walk/jog to Lake Superior. Ten rooms are available at $92+tax until July 6, call 906-228-6000 and tell them you're with the Yooper Looper. Cancellations are accepted prior to 1600 the day before the reservation.
Please put us on your calendar and preregister. Preregistration would help eliminate some of IAC-134's first contest jitters.
