Our friends with the Vinton County Pilots and Boosters’ Association have a lot of fun events planned for this year and they asked me to sure this with all of you.

Event season is about to begin at the Vinton County Airport near McArthur with a new event to be held Sunday, June 10.  Called Ride to the Sky/SOJO Bike Rodeo, the event will focus on motorcycles and airport staff will be assisted by members of Sojourners Care Network of McArthur.

There will be four motorcycle events scheduled for bikers, live music, airplane rides, a variety of foods from the airport shelterhouse, and more including a 50/50 drawing.

The event will begin at 11 a.m. and the parking/admission fee will be $10 per car or bike. Airplane rides will be the same as last year, $30 per seat, and will be offered all day.

For more information, call Vinton County Pilots and Boosters President Nick Rupert at 740-357-0268 or Secretary Steve Keller at 740-418-2612. The Vinton County Airport is located about six miles north of McArthur just off St. Rt. 93 on Airport Road.
