Hammers Over Hondo


Great news aerobatic enthusiasts.  Hammerfest 2022 is a go, although with a new name to reflect our new home...Hammers Over Hondo!  Chapter 107 is again hosting our contest but this time at a new location...Hondo, Texas (KHDO). 

Practice and registration will be on Thursday, 15 September 2022.

Contest flying will be on Friday, 16 September 2022 (all day) and Saturday, 17 September 2022 (hopefully complete by early afternoon so folks can fly home).

Back-up/rain day is Sunday, 18 September 2022.

While not requiring pre-registration I would still ask you to pre-register or contact me so we have a good base of information to plan with.  Thanks in advance!

Hondo offers plenty of accommodations.  While there is no official contest hotel, the local options are affordable and convenient.  A quick perusal of several websites revealed the following options (in no particular order):

Hondo Hotel (no longer Best Western) (830) 426-4466
Regency Inn (830) 426-3031
Executive Inn (830) 426-2535

Another option to consider, especially if you can round up a group, is this…

www.backroadstexas.net. and look for the ranchito cabin.  

Please do your research and choose the option that's best for you.

And yes, we will still have cookies! Many pilots have reported that the main reason they make it to our contest is the cookies.  They are that good.

If you have questions, or need more information, contact the CD, Doug Jenkins, at bagsf15 [at] yahoo.com or phone 210-485-8025.  We look forward to seeing you in Hondo!

Rule Deviations: 

This is shaping up to be a small contest. Staffing the boundary judge positions may not be possible. It is my intent to have boundary judges, but I am requesting a waiver to operate without them in case that becomes necessary.
