The International Grumman Pilots Association
The 2018 Annual Convention. See a Convention Bureau PowerPoint here. There is a short promotional video here, 90MB file.
Preview here, information will be updated when available.
The next date to put on your calendar is Saturday, Oct. 6th. On this date we will be Gathering at Carbondale, IL at the Southern Illinois Airport (KMDH). This Gathering will be in conjunction with the AOPA Regional Meeting. John Cotter, one of our Grumman guys and retired from the Southern Illinois University Aviation Program is helping arrange parking so we can have all Grumman's in one area, and he is also making arrangements so we can have a sit down meeting in one of the classrooms at the aviation facility located right on the airport. Our meeting will be either in the late morning, just before lunch, or right after lunch. We are assuming AOPA will have some food vendors on the field that weekend.
We will need an advanced plane count in order to get all parked together. So, the sooner you can let me know if you plan to fly in (weather permitting) the easier it will be for John to arrange parking together. Better to let us know you are planning to come and then maybe have to cancel at the last minuet, than not tell us you are coming and not have a space for you.

Join us at HOU on Saturday, Oct 13th for a tour of the 1940 Air Terminal Museum right there on the field. http://www.1940airterminal.org/
There will be a food truck on site. Let's plan to arrive between 11 and 11:30 and grab some lunch when you arrive so that we don't all hit the chow line at the same time. After everyone's been fed, we'll tour the museum. ($5/head)
If winds are favorable, ask tower or approach for runway 17/35 as it's closest to the museum ramp. When you arrive, make sure to tell ground that you're with the Grumman group and they'll clear you to taxi to parking right in front of the museum.
Please RSVP to me with your head count and any questions. See you there!

October 20th we’re back in South Carolina to the Twin Lakes Airport S17. This is an airpark that is public use. I have been told it used to be a drag strip but they have put it to much better use now. There is no ramp so when I was there I just parked on the grass off the approach end of 24. There is a little restaurant just a short walk from the airport.

November 17th, I’m heading back to BQ1 and the Pik N Pig. I told you this was one of my favorites.
December 15th I’ll be staying in South Carolina and traveling to Greenville Downtown Airport, KGMU, to The Runway Café. If you have young children this is a good one. They have a very nice aviation theme playground next to the restaurant.
