How come the Fly-In breakfast was changed from the last Sat. in May, as traditional, to this weekend of the 21st, a week early? I missed it because of this change and always look forward to this great event. This is very disappointing when this change happens and forced to have to keep checking for this unexpected change.

That is a good question! You would have to ask then organizers why they moved it, but the most common reason is scheduling conflicts with other near-by fly-ins.

That is one reason that we post notices about these events, though, to let people know when they are on. Another good source is, of course, COPA's On The Horizon.
