The 2023 Chicken Drop has been scheduled for October 13 - 15, 2023. The Chicken Drop briefing will start at 1000 Saturday morning October 14th.  You MUST attend the briefing to fly in the drop. You do NOT have to be FAST qualified to fly in the drop.


The event fee will be $50/person including guests.  Almost all the other costs for us have been covered by donations from the local populace. At the last Chicken Drop the team spent almost $10,000 on food and booze. I expect this year to be just as good! They plan to have free smoke oil, first come, first serve. We also have a new wagon delivery system with an electric pump. There will be discounted prices on 100LL.


The hotel reservation block for the Fairfield Inn & Suites is $99.  Please call the hotel directly at 410-822-0050.  The hotel will use their van to shuttle us back and forth.  Book early as the number of rooms are limited and there are only a few left.  Other hotels are available in the area if this hotel is sold out. 

Best Western Plus – 410-822-7100

Holiday Inn Express – 410-819-6500

Quality Inn – 410-820-8333

Lunch on Friday and Saturday will be a catered meal.

Dinner on Friday and Saturday will also be catered.  Saturday night is the Kangaroo Court.

Of course we will have an ample supply of free adult refreshments.
