So what are you going to do at the event that will make me want to drive all the way up there?
Glad to hear you are moving it to later in the year when the weather is better.
Run for cover, I'll be coming up to fly there!

Crash you can send your wife shopping while you fly.
The way the Canadian doller is think of the money you will save.

Well, helis are not yet seen as weapons of mass destruction in Canada..... .
I don't think you'll have any problems crossing the border with R/C gear (At least, some fellow modelers from here did not have any problems crossing into the US with their R/C gear.).
To be on the save side, call the border crossing where you want to get into Canada, and they surely can tell you.

Crossing the border with all the Heli stuff, should not be a problem.

I went to Brooks, Oregon last September for the fun fly there and it took a grand total of 45 sec to cross into the US and about 60 sec coming back into Canada.

The only problem on the trip was the 16-17 hour one way drive from Calgary to Brooks, other than that every thing was great. The added bonus this year is that I didn't hit any Deer's

Island Event

Hi Randy,

A lot of the locals will probably go just like last year, I am sure Kevin and Shawn will (as they will want some of your group at their RCFCBC event in August), ditto for a few others.

Sorry I won't be able to make it as I will be in Japan at the time.

The best route from Seattle to Victoria is the San Juan-Victoria ferry from Anacortes, Wa. The ferry west bound leaves at 7:45 AM. This means you should be in line at the Anacortes dock no later than 7:00 AM and preferably before that to make sure you get on. The boat gets to Sidney (very close to the site) at 10:45. If you don't get on the boat you should drive on to Vancouver as the next Anacortes boat is the next day. It's beautiful ride.
