The 2009 “Powrachute Extravaganza” is scheduled for Sept. 17 through 20 at Will Rogers Downs, a large race track and casino in Claremore, Oklahoma, near Tulsa. The Extravaganza is expected to be the largest gathering of powered parachutes and pilots since 1999, according to organizer Galen Geigley.
“Details are being put together and advertising will take place in magazines and on the Powrachute Corporation website,” Geigley said on June 22. “Preliminary word of mouth has shown a huge interest and it looks like this will be back to the numbers that were at the old Extravaganza events held in Kansas,” he commented.
Geigley pointed out that more than 400 RV full hookups will be available, “tons of food, live bands, casino and probably 5,000 to 10,000 of the general public” attending. “Stay tuned,” he advised.
