RE: Southwest 737 In MLI

Is there more than one golf event at the TPC at Deere Run? I was in Silvis last year during the John Deere Open (or something like that) at the end of July. Anyway, it's a nice golf course.

BTW, my sister used to live in East Moline, too.

RE: DCA STARs And SIDs

Chris,

I haven't had any luck in locating DCA SIDs/STARs either... I'm not really familiar with DCA so I don't know if it has any at all but it would seem that it would have those procedures.

Maybe someone else can fill us in.
