SAN MARCOS, Texas — Due to the recent hardships faced by the local community after the Hays County flooding during Memorial Day weekend, Redbird Skyport will postpone the Bluebonnet Fly-In at San Marcos Airport. The fly-in, originally scheduled for this Saturday, May 30, will now take place on June 6.
To support those affected by the flooding, all proceeds from the fly-in will be donated to the Hays County Salvation Army.
“We regret any inconvenience this change may cause,” said John Koenreich, general manager for Skyport, “but it needed to happen to allow us to continue to support the on-going rescue and recovery efforts that have been operating out of Skyport since the disaster began.”
San Marcos Regional Airport and the Redbird Skyport facilities have been a main coordination center for National Guard helicopters, search and rescue aircraft and survey flights.
