Harold Neumann Chili Dog Fly In

August 30th, 2011

Fifth Annual Once Every So Often Harold Neumann Memorial Chili Dog Fly-In

A long, long, time ago there were many fly-in’s throughout the year in the Kansas City area.  The Kansas City Chapter of the Antique Airplane Association, in addition to their annual fly-in at either Lawrence Municipal Airport or at the Atchison Kansas Airport, would host the occasional impromptu breakfast fly-in at the now gone (heavy sigh) Mission Road Airport.

EAA Chapter 91 would hold their annual fly-in at either Excelsior Springs Airport or the East Kansas City Airport in Grain Valley, MO.

IAC Chapter 15, The Kansas City Aerobatic Club, would hold their annual 4-category aerobatic love-fest at the Ottawa Kansas Airport.

EAA Chapter 200, “The Sunflower Chapter”, would serve pancakes several times a year at Gardner Municipal.  However, the last fly-in of the year was always held at Harold Neumann’s private strip near Olathe, KS.  This fly-in was strictly a word of mouth affair that drew 20 to 25 experimental and antique/classic airplanes to Harold’s strip in late October or early November.

On that Sunday afternoon we would gather around a fire built from creosote soaked railroad ties, roasting hotdogs, eating home-made chili and enjoying the fellowship of our fellow aviators, all the while trying to stay warm!!  It has been quite some time now since we lost Harold and even more time since there was an end of season fly-in at Harold’s strip.  Well, we cannot go back to “Neumann (Pvt.)” but we can honor Harold’s memory with the Fifth Annual Once Every So Often Harold Neumann Memorial Chili Dog Fly-In!

This event will take place on Saturday, October 15th at the Gardner Kansas Municipal Airport (K34), “The Best Little Airport In Kansas”.

With chili, hotdogs and drinks provided by EAA Vintage Aircraft Chapter 16 (side dish or dessert appreciated, but not required), we will gather at noon in the outdoor pavilion and stay and swap lies about our aviation prowess and speak to our memories of Harold until we can no longer stand each other.

If you have any questions about this event, or want to donate a pot of chili, please call Bob Gandy at 913-634-8617 or email  Please put “Harold Neumann Fly-In” in the subject line as I don’t answer all the offers I receive to represent someone from Nigeria in regards to their financial issues . . . . .

We look forward to seeing all of you at K34 in October.
