Plan to spend the weekend with RAF AR State Liaison, Dave Powell.  Come and enjoy camping, fireside friends, canoe/kayaking on Kings River for small mouth fishing and or photography.  Meet fellow pilots and make some new friends at Trigger Gap a beautiful new airstrip in the Ozark's.  Ozark fly-outs both Saturday and Sunday morning.  

Activities for the weekend –
