All Day The 2019 Calaveras County Airport Fly-In & Open House
San Andreas, CA...On Saturday April 27th Calaveras Airport and the Mother Lode Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) chapter 484 will be hosting our annual open house and Fly-In. For more than 20 years now this event is popular with our local community and for many California pilots who fly in just to relax, eat, and enjoy their day here in the scenic Mother Lode.



We will have classic cars on display along with the Mountain RC club's static display of their radio controlled airplanes. Antique, classic, and experimental aircraft will fly in to participate in our airport day event. We start the day with a pancake breakfast offered by Tri-Dam Lions Club. Our EAA chapter 484 will host a BBQ lunch and the Murphy's Boy Scout Troop 473 will be serving up hot dogs.

Musical entertainment will be provided throughout the day starting with “The Calaveras Community Band” followed by “The Rusty Rockers”.

We are expecting Cal Fire and the Highway Patrol to set up information booths. Cal Fire will have a fire truck display. CHP is planning to fly in a helicopter to put on display along with one of their patrol cars.
Very popular are the scenic airplane rides offered throughout the day starting around 8:30am. Our local pilots donate their time, fuel, and airplanes for the wonderful experience of viewing the Mother Lode from the air. Tickets sell out early and the line gets long so come out for breakfast and enjoy an early morning flight!

A nominal donation for the airplane rides of $10 for children and $20 for adults goes to our EAA chapter 484 for their scholarship fund. These funds are given to aspiring youths in our Young Eagles Program that desire to pursue an aviation career. The national EAA organization has flown over 2 million kids between the ages of 8-17. Our EAA chapter 484 hosts a Young Eagle Flight event each month between May and October.

Make Calaveras Airport you destination for the day! For more information you can contact Kathy Zancanella at 209-736-2501 or by email at zancanellak@yahoo.com

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Old Timers Museum Walking Tours Are Every Saturday at 10am.
Murphys, CA...Each Saturday morning the Old Timers Museum in Murphys offers a historical walking tour of Murphys. No reservation necessary. Meet at the Museum, 470 Main St, Murphys, across from the Hotel 10 am. Walk is 1-1/12 hours.


A stroll down tree-lined Main Street transports visitors back to the mid-1800s with buildings bearing thick stone walls, iron shutters and pastoral gardens with white picket fences. Once you experience the charm and hospitality of Murphys, the historic “Queen of the Sierra”, you’ll want to come back again and again!

Rich in Gold Rush History, Murphys today is a vibrant, thriving community of over 2,000 residents. Many of the surrounding hillsides are rich with the fine wine grapes grown in our area. Murphys offers wineries, art galleries, live theater, eclectic shops, fine restaurants, charming hotels and B&B’s as well as a multitude of outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities.

Murphys’ colorful past came alive in 1848 when John and Daniel Murphy established a trading post and gold mining operation in the area that is now their namesake. True entrepreneurs with the luck of the Irish, they were a part of the very first immigrant party – the Stephens-Townsend-Murphy families – to successfully bring wagons over the Sierra in 1844, paving the way for westward migration. John and Daniel’s cries of “Gold!” were among the first heard in California. It is reported that the brothers took two million dollars in gold ore from the Murphys Diggins in one year’s time, making them millionaires before the age of 25. The sizzling Gold Rush camp of Murphys also played host to President Grant, Mark Twain and Black Bart. And in some circles, to an even more famous chap – a young, inquisitive lad who literally changed the scientific world, Dr. Albert Michelson.

Our friendly residents invite you to revisit the past while exploring the “new” upscale Murphys. Guided walking tours of the town’s many historic buildings including the home of Albert Michelson, the first American Nobel Prize winner, are conducted every Saturday at 10:00 a.m., starting in front of the Old Timers Museum on Main Street.
