Can I have gate 74 with United 757-200

I’m very excited to join the community and my fellow SWVA pilots in this awesome event!

A reminder for those that missed this in the instructions, VA pilots should let their event staff know they want to be added to the reserved gate list (instead of signing up via the thread).

This one plz

Please be sure you are included on the list sent to us by your staff. On the other hand, we cannot prevent reserved slots from being used by any pilots of that VA, even if they are unable to register on time. We do ask that your staff send us a full registration today for planning purposes.

I’ll take this one ☝️
