Yes, Runway good. Short grass with some gravel on spots, smooth. Fenced on both sides with electric fence wire. There is electric overhead cables quite close to the 01 threshold as shown on the picture that are well marked with florescent markers. Slight gradient from 01 to 19. Its a nice little strip that is close to town.
