There is a special gathering of restored, kitbuilt, vintage and military aircraft coming to Grimes Field in Urbana, Ohio next August, and "The Ohio Nomads" have been invited to "fly in" with them.
The "Mid-Eastern Regional Fly-In" (MERFI) takes place on Friday 21 August and Saturday 22 August 2015. The Ohio Nomads' "MERFI's Law Rally" runs from Thursday 20 August to Sunday 23 August. Our main Rally site is at the Champaign County Fairgrounds, east of South High Street and north of Powell Avenue in Urbana. The main routes to folw are US Route 68 north-south, and US Route 36 east-west.
There is also an opportunity to "freedom-camp" within walking distance of the airslow events, in a wooded campsite just south of the runway. Most of the Rally attendees (as have responded so far) will be coming to the fairgrounds, for powered sites, water and so forth.
Info will be posted in the "Calendar" page of "ohionomads dot com" as it becomes available. If you've ever wanted to attend the EAA Airventure or the NZFPM Warbirds Over Wanaka RV events, but couldn't quite swing the budget, here's a more cost-effective and up-close-and-personal event you'll be sure to like.
