Bad-Apples Fly-In 2022

    How early can I arrive?
    We’ve had this question a few times so far we’ve modified the policy and we are asking that no one arrives before Tuesday to allow us some time to get prepared.
    Fly-In staff will also be collecting the camping fees for all who are on the field for the fly-in so if there is no one present at the entrance when you arrive, please seek us out to make sure you obtain the camper tag for this year.
    Also for those arriving early, please be aware that you may be asked to change location, depending on where you park. Some spaces near the pavilion will certainly be reserved for staff but there may be some additional shuffling around for organizational purposes.
    Some of the power poles have multiple 20/30/50A outlets so when you park, make sure you leave enough space for other campers to access the remaining outlets.
  • 14 Mar – No “pre-registration” this year!
    But we do have a system to let us know how many plan to attend. Please take a few minutes fill out your details so we can prepare appropriately.
  • 28 Feb – Moving Ahead, Big Changes, please read!
    Preparations for the 2021 Fly-In continue.
    We have decided to simplify the payments process and will be only accepting cash at the gate. However, we still have a “Plan To Be There?” button but this is NOT a registration, nor is it a guarantee for or of anything. We simply ask that everyone who is intending to be there and/or would like to purchase T-shirts signs up so that we know how many to expect as it will assist us immensely in planning for supplies and preparation for the fly-in.
  • Supporting Resurgence PPG
    Our mission for 2021 has not changed from what we were planning for 2020.
    We will be supporting Resurgence PPG with the proceeds from the fly-in.
  • 7 Dec – Getting ready IT’S ON!!!
    We will be likely be adjusting some of our procedures a little bit this year, never stop improving!
