Next BAPA Fly-in - Dunlap, April 20th-21st, 2013

Hello Pilots!

The next BAPA Fly-in will be held at Dunlap, April 20th-21st, 2013.  This fly-in was originally scheduled for Potato Hill, but due to the recent fire we have moved it to Dunlap. The road to Potato Hill will be closed until at least May 31, 2013.

Dunlap is one of the most consistent sites around.  Note that Dunlap is a P-3 site.  Please RSVP to me asap at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you're thinking about coming to Dunlap, and I'll set up an Evite with all the respondents early next week.  We will do all the fly-in coordination via the Evite.

Our traditional camping/lodging location at Sequoia Highlands up top is not available to us due to some unfortunate circumstances.  We will instead be staying at St. Nicholas Ranch in the Dunlap Valley.  More information on St. Nicks is here:

St. Nicks has camping and dorm rooms for $15 per person per night.  There are also a very limited number of lodge rooms available for $70 per night.  I will have a better idea of lodge room availability later this week, but priority is being given to a larger group also staying at the ranch the same weekend.  For Saturday dinner we will either eat at St. Nicks or go out to one of the local establishments.

If unfamiliar with Dunlap, please read up on the site at and the local club's webpage at  Note that everyone needs to pay their yearly flying dues to the local club prior to flying at Dunlap.  Details can be found at the weblink above.

When you RSVP, please let me know your accommodation preference, ie camping/dorm/lodge room at St. Nicks or staying elsewhere.
