Grove Field, WA — As part of the upcoming Camas Days festivities, the Camas Washougal Aviation Association (CWAA) is hosting two fun events — a Steak Feed Fundraiser this Saturday, and an Open House/Public Plane Ride on Sunday.

“The  Sunday Open House is for our Aviation Association that is based at Grove Field,” said Terah Brice,  CWAA Treasurer and Social Committee Chair. “The funds go towards several scholarship offerings ranging from Aviation Education, Summer Camp financial aid for the week long, the youth camp that we put on every July and also funding for local future pilots to help cover costs of obtaining their private pilots license from our field. So it can cover fuel, airplane rentals, ground schooling or help pay for their flight instructor.”

Costs are $25 per ride.

CWAA member pilots are volunteering their time and planes to give the public a look into what general aviation is really all about, as well as to open up our invitation for people to join and be active with the organization, said Brice.

“Or to give them an opportunity to look into pursuing education or flight training,” she said. “We will be selling rode tickets from 10-2:30pm but often have pilots in the air until after 6pm. We are hoping for a food truck or will have popcorn, hotdogs, chips and water available.”

The annual CWAA events are a fun part of the Camas Days celebration.

CWAA Steak Feed

The Steak feed will be held Saturday, July 22 from 5-9 pm costs $20 at the door (gate) and it’s right on the airfield at 632 NE 267th in Camas. CWAA tosses tents up and visitors may eat alongside the runway. There will be raffle baskets donated by downtown shops and restaurants, which will include anything from gift certificates to trinkets to large items. The time is 5-9pm for that. Guests can mingle and have one-on-one talks with pilots if they are interested in pursuing aviation or are simply curious.
