Meadowlark Work Party, Georgia

November 18, 2017. Meadowlark Airfield (GA75). Georgia. Caution for glider activity in the area. Use 123.3 (open soaring freq) to make position reports for landing and departure.

Maeadowlark Airfield (GA75) Work Party

We’ve set November 18 for what will likely be the first of several work parties throughout the fall/winter season. Fly or drive in and bring your tent as we’re welcome to camp on the field and enjoy this wonderful place.

Below is a list of projects that we wish to accomplish over time. Much of what’s required is manual labor but there are some projects that require special skills or experience like electrical or hangar door repair. Take a moment to review this list and if there’s something you can help with, please sign up for a project at the following site: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409094CAFA829A0F94-meadowlark
