EAA Chapter 431 has long hosted an annual skiplane fly-in in the middle of the long, cold Wisconsin winters to get local pilots out of their hibernation and join us for some homemade chili and hangar flying, and for those properly dressed, some chatting and commiseration around the fire pit. The event usually falls around Groundhog Day, so the name has sort of stuck.
This year’s Groundhog Chili Ski Fly-In is set for Saturday, February 2, 2013 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. As always, fly in, drive in or walk in, but get to Brodhead Airport (C37) for a mid-winter break and join us for some fun. Chili and all the fixins’ will be available for a free-will donation.
A field condition report will be posted here in the days before the fly-in, so check back if you plan on flying. At this time, there is no snow but the ground is frozen hard for wheeled aircraft. Contact the webmaster with questions.
