Car arrivals - please come to the Leeward Air Ranch main gate- there will be directions and gate monitor.
Aircraft arrivals - Leeward is a private aircraft community, generally open to guests of residents, but there is VERY limited aircraft parking. Please contact me if you wish to fly in and we will try to coordinate, but in general we would prefer only those coming from >250mi to fly in. There are numerous other airports in the area, including Ocala KOCF. At the moment we do not have transportation planned for those airports. For those who fly in to FD04, all traffic is on the West Side of the field (right traffic rwy 18). 122.90. There will NOT be any sort of traffic control or radio monitoring. Please be safe and courteous, remembering that you are essentially in people's back yards.
Food - meat and cheese trays will be provided. If you wish to bring desserts or food, please do so, but it is not expected. Seating, tables, tent will be on site.
Drinks - water and soft drinks will be provided. Alcoholic beverages will not be provided but we will have ice chests.
Attire - nice casual, seasonal depending on weather. Anticipating that many guys will be in khaki shorts or pants and pullovers. Mark probably would have been in flip flops...
