Great vid- thank you. It's amazing how far we've come yet how almost 30 years ago looks very similar to a funfly today. Respect to those guys who pioneered this awesome hobby for us.

How about the advancement of the E Z up. Those old pop ups looks like they blew down a lot.

Fun times

Thanks for posting !
I was not at the one in 88 . I did recognize a lot of people though .
They are all old now .
I was at several Merced fun fly's after that .
A great time in my life !

card table landing

I remember when dave Storey was living in calif , I challenged him to auto the card table 10 for 10 and I`d give him $100

he didn`t make it but it was fun watching.
