I've just learned that there are reservations available for the Anacortes-Sidney run. This would help with the possibility of missing the ferry.

I attended this event last year. These guys did an outstanding job organizing the funfly! I have never seen so many raffle prizes at an event that size. Great group of people up there, nice site.

If you are coming from Washington, I would highly recommend NOT driving. I've been to victoria twice in the past year, both times driving, and it was an all day affair. If you can reserve one of the car ferries from here, I heard thats a better deal, but space on them is very limited. If I can make it this year, I'm gonna take the high speed ferry from seattle.

So try to make it! Its fu to hear all those cannucks talk funny..

Just to clarify. This is not the same event. This is up Island, in Nanaimo about an hour and half north of Victoria (our up country cousins ). Ours will be in July on the 19th and 20th. We really enjoyed your flying and Nates. Hope you can make it again this year. Bring more folks if you like.... we can always make more room. By the way, we're working on making the prize table worth the trip.

Sorry for honing in on your post Randy. I just wanted to make sure there was no confusion on which event was which.

EH!

The ferry to Sidney is great, but the event is 20min north of Nanaimo (Mid Island) so the other option is over the border, & take the BC Ferry from Tsawassenn to Duke Point (nanaimo) Then straight up the island Hwy (from Duke point to the event is about 30min). Field Map at PDQflyers.com

Open Flying Friday and Sunday with the events on Saturday
BBQ Dinner, etc... Sponsers , Tunes and food
More details on the events and raffle to follow.

Remember 10.00 dollars US must be worth thousands CDN by now.!!

Cheers
