RAF Fly in 8-10 Nov BlackWater (8FD3)
Enjoy a weekend at Blackwater Airfield (8FD3), located in the Blackwater River State Forest. Blackwater River State Forest is one of the largest state forests in Florida and is named for the Blackwater River, which begins to the north in Alabama and meanders approximately 30 miles southwestward through the forest into Blackwater Bay near Milton, Florida. The forest contains a wide variety of recreational facilities and hosts a variety of activities.
The field is a mile long turf strip in good condition. There is a country store a few miles away for any requisite items, but supplies can be limited. This is located in a state park, so a small camping fee is required. Hot showers and indoor plumbing are a short walk away. For those not interested in flying in, there is a full service campground on site as well.
I have not received confirmation yet on the food plans, but grills are available for cooking. I will post more information as it becomes available. All aircraft types are welcome to attend. Fuel available a short hop away at Crestview (KCEW) or Milton (2R4).
