A Fly-In is a weekend-long square dance event. Because the early GLBT square dance clubs were geographically distant, driving between their locations to attend a dance or dance weekend was usually prohibitive. Flying was the norm for many out-of-town attendees, hence the name "Fly-In".

While the meeting of groups at the 1982 Denver rodeo probably qualifies as the first "Fly-In", the term first appears to have been used for the 1983 weekend hosted by the South Florida Mustangs.

See Ten Years IAGSDC: A Collection of Pages From Our Memory Book for more early references.

Many IAGSDC member clubs hold regularly scheduled Fly-Ins, while others put them on more sporadically. Also considered as Fly-Ins are ACDC and the West Coast A&C weekends.
