    Anyone know the details of MERFI 2014, in particular the dates?

    Their web site is set up for last years!


    I was thinking about going, probably just on Sunday, but wanted to make sure it would be worth while.

    Marion, IN "Fly-in / Cruise-in" is the same weekend and is usually a good mix of planes, hot-rods and motorcycles.

    The info you posted is not the official MEFRI web site, but appears to be promoting only the hog roast and car show.

    Found this on the EAA calendar:
    I work on Saturdays, so my only choice is Sunday.

    Obviously, MERFI doesn't have any official information on their web site. Apparently they don't need to advertise.

    I was thinking about Merfi on Saturday. Is it a good flyin? I first attended it in 1975 in Springfield. Been hoping there are a couple decent events left where people aren't walking around with their noses stuck in the air over their $150K homebuilts. :) There just don't seem to be many flyins around anymore due to cost of fuel, etc. I'm only 130nm away on Frankfort, KY so if the weather doesn't go in the toilet, I plan to check it out.

    We're getting pounded by thunderstorms along the front that went stationary along the Ohio River. I doubt I'll be headed for MERFI since the front is fcst to train storms along the front all day tomorrow. Starting to think about Zanesville at the end of Sept.
