Hello Friends,

I am pleased to announce the 2011 Mid America R/C Heli Fun Fly scheduled for June 3rd thru 5th, 2011. This years' event will take place at Grosse Ile Airport on the island of Grosse Ile, Mi. after months of planning and negotiating we have permission to fly on one of the airports two runways. The runway is 8850 feet long offering us an incredible amount of space for our flight line. This year the event will be held in conjunction with the Grosse Ile Island Fest also occurring at the airport during the Fun Fly.

Moving the event to the airport offers several new amenities:

Night Flying
Camping
Motor Home Parking

Due to circumstances beyond my control the XFC is being held the same weekend and as a result we will not have the attendance of some of our pro pilot friends, but I assure you there will not be a lack of talent at this event.

As usual there will be planned dinners and other activities for every night of the event.

Stay tuned for more info regarding Sponsors and Guest pilots very soon.

Big D.

There are many other weekends around the event time as well I think she is choosing that date so that cannot go and have fun with your friends for a weekend.

She chose the date before Daryl posted the dates for the funfly. I guess I will have to go to Orlando (2011) to make up for this one....

Looking forward to this for sure. Sucks you had vandals last year. That site was set up real nice for the event. I'm sure like usual this event will be off the hook. Count the Grand Rapids Crew in for attendance again.

Carpe Diem!!!
