DON’S BIRTHDAY BONFIRE BASH
Join 6B6 owner Don McPherson and his hardy friends as they celebrate with a Birthday Bonfire Bash on Sunday, March 1st at 4pm. Enjoy a HUGE fire, a small bit of cake and a wee dram of some very special single malt (he is Scottish after all!) For the third year in a row, Nancy’s staff will offer up their venison chili, made from the annual airport deer round-up. Not ready for game? You’re welcome to bring your own meat, rolls, and beverage. Grab your favorite party accomplices and jovial spirit. Musical instruments encouraged! All are welcome, especially ‘joke tellers’ and ‘yarn spinners’. No gifts please, just bring a little time to share with Don!
BUSINESS AS USUAL AND BUSIER THAN USUAL
It’s still business as usual at the pumps and in the cafe while Don and Nancy seek the next custodian for their beloved and prosperous airport!
Perhaps we should say “busier than usual” for this time of the year. New insulated and draft-free hangar doors were installed in the north and south hangars and the operations team survived the agony of a total computer system upgrade. A few of our tail dragging friends are already enjoying turf runway 12/30 and the operations office has been busy with many folks making good use of the newly paved airport. Nancy’s annual Robert Burns dinner was once again a huge success and the Valentine’s Dinner was sold out.
We recently received Stow Conservation Commission’s Certificate of Compliance for our last Vegetation Management Plan, clearing the way for more clearing of trees and brush throughout the season.
Whew…that’s a lot for the first couple of months of the year. As we continue to invest in the future we can’t wait to see what the next few months bring!
CELEBRATE ST. PATRICK’S DAY WITH NANCY
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 13 14 & 15, the cafe will offer two specials: Green Eggs and Ham and Corned Beef Hash. On Friday and Saturday nights, Nancy will be serving her famous Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner. Come and join in on the fun. Don’t worry if you’re not Irish, there’ll be plenty of Jamison to make you feel truly Irish for the night!
Phone (978) 897-3934 to be put on the 1-hour daytime call ahead list
or for Friday and Saturday evening reservations.

All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Boxborough and Stow Conservation Trusts as they share our interest in preserving open space. Watch for future NOTAMs closing the airport for two hours Saturday morning. Come early, run or watch the race, have breakfast, visit our tenants, and then go for a plane ride! More info to come…
