Negrito & Rainy Mesa Airstrip Work Party Based at Negrito

NMPA will provide volunteers for a work party to install a new windsock pole at Negrito. Also, a crew will be shuttled to Rainy Mesa to cut down small trees, stump grind, and install a new windsock pole. If we get Rainy Mesa finished, we can likely start using it this summer! 
There is no potable water at Negrito, but there is a vault toilet. Do not rely on cell service or radio reception to close a flight plan.
The NMPA trailer will be set up at Negrito to provide handwashing water; and coffee on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Bring your own food and tie downs for aircraft, and plan to shut down on the runway and push back into parking. Both E and W tie-down areas were mowed on 2-21-20. 8 sets of tie-downs, first come basis. Tent camping or small RVs. Back-up dates are May 15-17.
