Your chance to listen to Ray Arnold tell his many stories about his decades of flying around the Idaho wilderness is back on for this year! It was cancelled last year for the virus, however it looks like Corona will be a beer again by August of this year!!
Ray will fly into the Flying B on August 13th – Friday the 13th – and hang around that evening. Then, Ray Arnold’s interview and talk will run on Saturday, August 14th at the Flying B from 9:30am until Noon. Afterwards, there will be an open discussion and chat from 5pm until dinner and/or beyond as he and folks want to talk. He can talk as long as he likes, and your questions and comments will be welcomed. On Sunday morning, the 14th, he will head back to home in Cascade leaving many great memories! It is a great opportunity to meet Ray!
