NC’s Sugar Valley Airport to dedicate fire circleNC’s Sugar Valley Airport to dedicate fire circle

Sugar Valley Airport in Mocksville, N.C., will dedicate a friendship fire circle at its spring fly-in/drive-in on April 21.

One of the first of dozens of fire circles to be created at small airports around the nation, Sugar Valley’s is intended to become a focal point for fellowship and recreational activities for visitors and residents. It was developed in partnership with the Honda Flying Club of Greensboro.

The airport has planned a full slate of activities, including a skydiving event, spot landing and “Bomb the Bismarck” contests, helicopter flights, Young Eagles flights, hay rides, and musical presentations. The event kicks off at 8:30 a.m.; the dedication of the fire circle will be held at 2:30 p.m. For more information on the fly-in or to purchase a brick for the fire circle, see the website.
