Ride Captain:

Nigel Heaton

Special Instructions:

Due to Icing in the weather forecast for Saturday night into Sunday morning and the constructionon site. I strongly advise against Riding to Honor Flight. There will be no staging at Gate 5, go directly to parking. 
Please arrive early as it will be very busy that morning and construction and weather will make it even more difficult.
Update from Nigel, 04/13 @4:45 PM
Due to construction at the Airport we will not be riding in group formation as usual. No ride by the terminal, straight from gate 5 to parking.Those of you who do decide to ride, we will stage at gate 5 on the access road by the white fuel Tanks. Do not enter from Brooks Ave. Enter the access road via Scottsville Road, near exit 17 on Rt. 390. After going through the tunnel, gate 5 is about 1/4 mile on the left. Please stage there at 11:30 A.M. KSU at 11:40 A.M.
Weather forecast is a tough call right now. Temps range from 33 to 50 degrees with 70% change of rain. Those of you who cage please go direct to parking we will not come in as a group. I expect traffic to be heavy for parking please arrive in plenty of time for 12:00 PM Briefing inside the terminal on the first floor.
Due to weather I am not posting a rendezvous area for a ride in to the airport at this time. Please check the PGR website Saturday by 5:00 pm for any updates.
I will have parking Passes. email me if anyone needs an armband.
