Corvair College #25, April 5-7 Leesburg FL, Part 2 of 3 updates.
Here Is part 2 of the CC#25 updates. First some notes from us, and then a letter in blue from our local host Arnold Holmes. I have already had 3 Corvair pilots check in with plans to fly to the College. As we get closer, I believe we will have several more. This update includes hotel information and links, but most of the people we have spoken with are planning on camping on site.
Besides the regular engine building and running, I am teaching builders specific skills of setting the timing on the engine with a light, how to set the valve clearance once, so it is never required again, and how to use a differential compression tester. We will break into small groups to cover these things. I am looking
Forward to having as many of you as possible at the college. In part three we will have an early registration link.-ww
Corvair College #25 is just around the corner and I wanted to let you all know that our EAA Chapter 534 is working hard to have a great event for all of you. We are currently building new work tables, updating some electrical and compressed air items in the hangar and getting our menu ready for your arrival. We have several local motels lined up to provide really nice rooms and William will be posting that information for your consideration. Please be aware that we have all the aircraft parking you will ever need so if you’re flying in have no worries. We also have all of the camping area you would ever want, so if you want to camp it’s no problem. There are no hook-ups but we do have three showers for everyone to use. You can bring in a large RV or a small pup tent, makes no matter. Our EAA Chapter will be providing lunch and dinner of Friday. Saturday will be breakfast, lunch and dinner and Sunday will be breakfast and lunch. In the past there has always been a registration fee charged for Corvair College, this money went directly to the host to provide food etc…..This year we are trying a different approach. We will be making the meals available for purchase at a very modest price. We believe this will allow you to control your cost for attending and help support our EAA Chapter. We are really looking forward to hosting a great event and hopefully we can make it an annual event here in Leesburg. See Ya Soon!!
William I have the first bit of hotel information here Best Western Leesburg FL 352-253-2378 Holding a block of 10 King Suites for $85.00 per night under rate code: Corvair College. These rooms will be held until the 22nd of march at that rate. If people gobble up those rooms they will block out more. I am awaiting the linking email from the Hamton Inn who has also set us up a rate code and blocked out some rooms.
Third note from Arnold:
Distribute this link for the Hampton Inn. This will take them directly to the booking site with the reduced rate for our event. If someone should want to call instead they must tell them that the rate code is: sunair
