Groundhog Chili Ski Fly-In – Saturday Feb. 3

UPDATE: Field Condition Report – As of Friday afternoon, the airport was dry and frozen with no snow and patchy ice. 

Our annual Groundhog Chili Ski Fly-In is scheduled for Saturday, February 3, 2018 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Brodhead Airport. The event will be held regardless of weather or field conditions.

As always, fly in, drive in or walk in for a mid-winter break and join us for some winter flying. Chili and all the fixins’ will be available in the Chapter Building for a free-will donation.

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.

Pilots, be advised the airport has had standing water on the runways for the past week. A field condition report will be posted here. Please check before landing.
