Hey everyone! I would like to invite everyone to the first annual GUNS Garin Memorial Fly-In at Owens field in Columbia, SC (KCUB).
Saturday, May 28th 10-2pm
The purpose of this fly in is to raise money and awareness for our non-profit foundation, the GUNS Garin Memorial Foundation. Unfortunately we lost my brother, Major Rick “GUNS” Garin less than 2 years ago. He was a highly respected F-16 pilot for the McEntire ANG. This foundation was started to honor his legacy. We help military families in need and also have a growing flight scholarship program. We will be announcing 6 new recipients of our flight scholarship at this fly in!
This fly in is free! No landing fee! On top of that we are fortunate enough to offer $.50 off per gallon along with one free pizza per airplane! Lunch will be provided by Hunter-Gatherer. Also, there will be a B-25 static display, P-51’s and other warbirds.
As much as I wish my brother was here to enjoy this fly in, I feel he’d be proud of the foundation that we have started because of him.
My dad had a beautiful RV7 for 8 years. I took my daughter for her first airplane ride in it a few years ago. Unfortunately he recently sold it, but I still have a passion for RV’s. I now have a Cessna 195 that I will have at the fly in.
This is the very first fly in that I have hosted. My goal is to make this a fly in that many people look forward to attending each and every year.
