I'm hoping that I'll still have my R50 V1 still in tact, and along with my R 46 V1 "Hot Rod" with me!!!

My buddy has a couple of Raptors a 30 and 60 V2. We'll see what we can come up with.

Enjoy!!!

Well the first annual Thistledown Flyers Heli-Hop is in the books and all I can say is wow and thanks to everybody for there support.
The weather couldn't have been any better and the field was in excellent shape.
Again Coop and I would like to thank all the sponsers of our event for there wonderful support.
Coop and I had a great time meeting and flying with all the pilots.
Thanks to the Thistledown Flyers club members for there help and support , these folks know how to make you feel welcome .
Thanks Corky for the $1000.00 shopping spree certificate which was raffled and won by a happy pilot.
Enough thanks for now, hope to see you all again next year.
I have bottled the weather and I won't open it until next year !

Posted by chris-fry on 06-09-2004 03:59 AM:
Hey George, Corky brought up the idea to have another one later on this year. Not sure if Coop talked to you about it or not?? But I can assure you that Corky is game for it!!

I'm certain that Coop could clear up a day at the field. I was thinking about the first weekend of Oct. The weather is still rather nice, ya know, long pants and maybe sweat shirts........ Would you be interested in putting on another one??

It's up to you. I'm certain that we could get even MORE people to show up this time!!!! Just what you are looking for, eh????

Let us know whats going on. See you @ XFC!!!

PS- if you didn't make the first one, make the second one!!!! It was a blast!!!! Hopefully my R50 makes it that far!!!
