2013 Fly-Ins

28 DAFers and 4 potential DAFers in 13 aircraft flew into Laughlin-Bullhead International Airport on April 14 for an event-packed weekend orchestrated by Craig and Jody Narr. Craig and Jody shuttled everyone from the airport to our river-view rooms at the Aquarius Hotel, where an early happy hour started at 4pm. We then walked down to the dock in front of the hotel and boarded the Celebration paddle-wheeler for two-hour dinner cruise.  The food was great and the balmy evening weather couldn't have been nicer.

On Saturday morning, the Narrs and Taylors picked up a couple of large passenger vans and took us all to Oatman, AZ on historic Route 66.  At Oatman, there were plenty of shops, fat yet seemingly insatiable burros, and a staged gunfight that raised money for charity.  After riding back to the hotel, most of us had dinner at the Vineyard restaurant.  We all then walked next door to the Riverside Hotel and Casino and saw a Johnny Cash tribute show.  This was a very well-produced show that is touring internationally.

Most of us departed for Torrance on Sunday morning, but the Narrs, Falstroms and Delanes took a flying side trip to the Grand Canyon Caverns (click the photo for all of pictures).

This trip took a lot of planning and the club would like to extend a big thank-you to Craig and Jody for putting together such a fun weekend.
