Well we are all set with the flying site and dates.

The dates for the HELICOPTER GATHERING will be the weekend of September 4th and 5th. We will be posting a list of hotels, rates, locations, and directions to the field shortly. Our event will host a couple of top 3D fliers for helicopter flight demo's. We will also have a clinic for helicopter setup procedures. Any novice fliers who attend the HELICOPTER GATHERING are welcome to use it. There will also be plently of people here to help you get that helicopter, and youself flying. Anyone past, present, big or small flyer is welcome!! If you are just getting started come on over. If you are a big 3D monster, come and display those wares.

Everyone is welcome. Atlantic City N.J. is 20 minutes away from the flying field and they have casinos, major hotels, boardwalk, beach. There are shows and clubs open nightly, for everyone coming who would like lots of heavy night action.

If anyone has there own airplane, or is a private pilot and has access to one, there will be a facility to park and fuel your aircraft at our Millville, N.J. (MIV) location. There will be transportation or rental cars availible. For people flying in on private aircraft, you can contact Babs at 609-293-9000. She will be happy to provide you with any assistance or information about the facility at Millville N.J., rental cars, or other information needed to make your trip a pleasant one.

We promise a good time and a unique RC helicopter meet will be had by all. Here are a couple of links for the Atlantic City, New Jersey night action located about 20 minutes from our flying site. There are plenty of hotels in Atlantic City if you prefer to stay there. There are also smaller hotels out of town a few miles with better rates and access to the flying site. We will post information concerning other hotles shortly.

How about R/V parking at the flying field ?

If it's worth doing, then it's worth over doing

I don't think RV parking will be a problem for us overnight, however I'll check into it and confirm it.

OCBob,
Since September 4 and 5 are Labor Day weekend do you think finding hotels and the like will be a problem near the Jersey Shore? You guys had a great event last year, I wouldn't want to miss it!

There are many smaller hotels out by where the event will be held. There should be little problem in getting rooms off shore. We will publish some phone numbers for these hotels shortly.

On site camping
OC Bob,
I saw someone else was asking about on site camping. Have you checked into it? I would like to come and stay the weekend without the hassel of trying to find a hotel that weekend. I have aq camper and a truck that I will leave hitched up. I need no electric or water and sewer is contained in the camper. So no worries. Let us RVers know if its cool and where we would park when arriving.
Thank you in advance.
Dave

We are told it is going to be no problem staying at the site. There is no water or electric, but that won't stop a lot of the people coming who have those self contained RV's.

Yes, they plan to fly on both days, Saturday and Sunday. These two guys are amazing RC helicopter fliers. A thing of beauty just to see them in action.

OC's HELICOPTER GATHERING SEPTEMBER 4th and 5th.


30 days until the HELICOPTER GATHERING begins. Near Atlantic City N.J. Everyone is invited. Prize drawings, food, demo flights by some big hitter fliers, setup clinics. And a helicopter fly in you won't ever forget. A good time to be had for everyone attending.

Hot helicopter action by day, and the action will sizzle by night in Atlantic City N.J. Casinos, boardwalk, the beach, shops, and shows. Bring the girls, loosen up with some of that cash for them, and let them have at it in town. While we all have at it right down the road.

Gonna be fun...
Just got off the phone with Larry at HeliProz.com and ordered my schtuff for the gathering. V-blades, Gy-601 and a few other odds and ends to get my Evo topped out, so I should be there as well. REALLY looking forward to seeing the action, I've only seen a few videos from last year so I can't wait to see it up close.

Hoping to see some night flying, that would be cool.

Anyhow, thanks to Larry at HeliProz for getting me rigged up without a hassle (took my order and checked to make sure everything was on hand and not out of stock before hanging up, mp2q was outta stock but the rest was there....gotta love good customer service), and I'll see you guys on the 4th!

I may not be the best, but I can sure crash just like em.

Two weeks left until the HELICOPTER GATHERING begins. Many are writing for directions so here they are.

The Helicopter Gathering is being held at our larger field this year because of what the attendence numbers look like. This flying site is on the Black Horse pike west of Mays Landing N.J. This is west of Atlantic City N.J. on Rt 322, about 13 miles.

Rt 322 is the black horse pike. On a map find where Rt. 50 and Rt 322 intersect at. The site is about 2 miles west of that on Rt 322 just past a farm market called Carmens Farm market.

A few hunderd feet past Carmens farm market on the same side is a Smokey the Bear sign. At the Smokey the bear sign is the enterance to the flying site. Turn in there, and it is about 500 feet back in.

Again, Carmens farm market is about 2 miles west of where RT 50 and Rt 322 intersect, on Rt 322. The site entrance is a few hundred feet past Carmans farm market at the smokey the bear sign.

See you all there.

Newbies coming early?
OC Bob,
Hi, Thanks in advance for having a great event. We can hardly wait to come. Myself and a friend are new to heli flying and want to come early Friday night due to traffic coming into the shore area for the weekend. We also will be camping in a trailer on site. Is it a problem for us that would like to arrive Friday night?
Although we are not to bad at hoveing and moving around a bit I doubt we will be flying in the event. But we sure will soak up all the great info for setup and advise tips. Hey maybe we will even bring a heli or two. So when we get to the field where do all the RVs park?
Thanks
Major-Rush (Dave)
