It has come to my attention that the City of Temple told the Temple Daily Telegram that the Central Texas Airshow was cancelled this year. In reality there was not going to be a Central Texas Airshow put on by the Georgetown Pilots’ Association.
In June of 2020, I went to go meet the new Airport manager for the City of Temple to get permission to apply for a Single Ship Demonstration Team for the Central Texas Airshow. I was surprised when the new Airport manager said that the City Manager thought that the City could put on the show.
I did have a conversation with the City Manager about an unexpected bill received by the Police Department for the 2019 Airshow. The City was told that our budget would be the same as the previous year for the Police. So I expected the bill to actually be lower since we cancelled the Friday Night Show by 3pm that afternoon. When the bill came I was very surprised that the bill was 66% more than the previous year. When I discussed the unexpected bill with the city manager she said they decided to have a bigger presence at the show. I had commented it might have been nice to let us know since the previous show the city police bill was a 29% increase from the show before that.
The Draughon-Miller Central Texas Regional Airport, Temple TX is a great location for the Central Texas Airshow. The first 15 years working with Sharon Rostovich and crew was great. The location is great for spectators and performers.
I hope the city can continue the great show that was presented by all the hard volunteers of the Georgetown Pilots’ Association.
