The Radio Aero Modelers of Seattle (RAMS) will be hosting our first annual Heli event on July 31st and August 1st. This is going to be a great time! We will have open flying on both days, and there is a possibility for a demo or fun contest thrown in as well. We are still in the planning stages of this event but expect great food and great flying for two days! The RAMS field is centrally located between Tacoma and Seattle, and is only a 2 hour drive from the Portland area.

Club website located here: http://www.homestead.com/rcrams

I'll post driving specific driving directions at a later time, although our website does have a simple map to the field. We don't have any RV hookups but we do have plenty of room for tents if you are planning on camping. I'll post more information as it becomes available. Looking forward to seeing you guys there!

Ryan
President, RAMS

EDIT - we changed the event date so it does not coincide with Marymoor's, which is sanctioned and far less flexible as far as dates.

I'm there

I will be there....
I noticed a For sale sign out close to 167 the other day at your field.
You guys loosing it in the future? That would be too bad it is a nice field.

It's been for sale for a long time, but the owner wants a pretty outrageous price so we're safe for now. We are looking into another field on the other side of the valley, which is not in danger of being surrounded by development or sold.

Hey Ryan,

Are you going flying tomorrow (5-5-04)? I'll be out there in the morning if the weather is good.

Unfortunately I got called into work a day early just to take a checkride, so basically my whole day is shot. The good news is they are giving me Saturday off so I can make the Spring fly-in.

Same weekend Dave? I'll have to fly one place in the morning and one place in the afternoon.

Come on down to the RAMS club sometime. I'll let you fly my Raptor again.

There appears to be a conflict with the dates. Marymoor has filed a sanction for the August 15 date and unless the Rams have already filed for the date, District 11 should not allow two simmilar events on the same weekend.

We do not sanction our events (too much BS) but I sent a PM, hopefully we can make arrangements.

Our event has been moved up a couple weeks; it is now being held on July 31st and August 1st. Now everyone can show up and still make the other events in the area. Hope to see everyone there.
