Bad News

The Governor of California and the Tuolumne County Board of Supervisers have made a decision to keep the airport guest facilities closed to May 15 as a part of Phase One Restrictions.

Phase Two Restrictions would also include keeping the airport pavilion and camp grouind closed. Phase Two Restrictions, if applied on May 15, are expected to remain in effect for 30 days. This includes the time of our event.

If you have made hotel or any other reservations be sure to cancel.

The 2021 Canards West fly-in is scheduled for June 4, 5 & 6, 2021. In the mean time, we hope to see you on the ramps while visiting our region!

Greetings fellow Canardians

It's not too early to start planning your visit to the 17th annual Canards West at Columbia Airport in N. California. If you have not visited Columbia you are missing an experience. Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains it is a jewel not to be missed.

It is a short walk to the old gold mining town of Columbia which has been preserved as it was in the heyday of the 49ers Gold Rush. The town has good restaurants and an authentic hotel from the gold mining period.

The camp ground at the airport has clean toilets and hot showers and a clubhouse that we will be using for presentations and the Saturday evening dinner.

The past Fly-ins have been a great success and we intend this year to reset the standard!
