How is the weather holding up so far? I am driving from Philadelphia and it is starting to look a little funky.

....I've been monitoring a storm on http://www.noaa.gov and a storm is looking like it will come over us. I just don't know. I've seen meteorologist say it will rain and it will be a perfect weekend. If it doesn't rain, I hope the wind will be tame enough to fly.

It was picture perfect weather last weekend and of all weeks for it to possibly rain

Hi shackscs

Don't worry ! The event will go on rain or snow. I will be out there. Possible thunderstorm Friday 50 % chance, It doesn't look like It would be a complete wash out weekend. Possible a few showers on Saturday and clear up by Sunday. As of right now NO RAIN and nice outside.
If it 'll rain hard tomorrow meet me in the cafeteria or look for me in the hangar. Any one needed help or wrenching bring your heli inside.
We'll play with the rain, bring umbrella, rain coat, water shoes, rc boats....
Thanks Vics for a set of V blade
SKD is also coming.
Some one call me about the event from Richmond area yesterday afternoon ..? You can call me back tonight.

Chris,
We are leaving to come down from MD about 0700 tomorrow morning...this is one of our favorite events and we won't miss it. Actually the weather is saying 50-30-30 for Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively which, for this time of the year, isn't that bad. We're gonna' take the chance for some good flyin' this weekend and hope a bunch of other folks do the same. Besides, I've promised a couple of new folks to help them and I won't break that promise.

Greg,
We can play in the trailer if need-be....just don't think there is enough room to fly the T-Rex's though...although Mark might think so. C'mon "little brother," let's go down and have some fun.

Geeez, Chris, you had to go and mention fire trucks....we'll never get Greg or Mark out of there....Greg trying to find out if it's got "hooters" and Mark just hanging around the fire truck....LMAO!

Hey chris,
thinking about bring my girlfriend to the event tommorow. Is the registration fee just for pilots? How about guest/spectators
Answer : Only pilot need to registers, wife, girlfriend, kids, spectators are free but they can purchase Raffle ticket to win a prizes.
I will let everyone know what it is on Saturday

I am all packed and leaving Philly this afternoon around 3:30, might not get there until 8:00PM or so. What time does the flying stop tonight, Saturday, and Sunday?

I started putting the Tiger together last night, ran out of time. Might bring it with me and finish it there. Still no electronics and engine.

Chris/Everyone,
Our apologies to everyone, however it now appears we burned out a brake controller on our tow vehicle/trailer...still troubleshooting, however it looks like we are going to be delayed by at least a day....if we can either find one locally or get one up in PA.

Yeah, I got to the Mall up the road and wouldn't you know it? Sun for as far as the eye can see.

I still had a great time. Plenty of great people to meet.

Robert, thanks a bunch!!!!!!!!!

I know so much more than I did before I came, weather aside, this was still a good trip for me.

Can't wait to see the sun come out tomorrow. I will be there early and hit the road back to Philly afterwards.

But I wanted everyone to know that it was still a great trip to make.

I will make to next years event. The people alone are worth the trip.
