GRAND PRIZE

Pilots! I am happy to announce our GRAND PRIZE for SPARKS Heli and Swap Meet! It is a NIB Spektrum DX8 Transmitter w/receiver and telemetry module. The Club was able to aquire it at wholesale through Archie's Hobby Pinellas Park, Fl, along with other Pilot door prizes, that were generously donated by Archie's. Our Club wants to thank Archie Sr. & Jr. for their contribution to our event on November 12, 2011. They don't have a web site, but here is their info:

Each registering pilot will get one raffle ticket to the Grand Prize at registration, along for one ticket per flight...sucessful or not. Everyone can purchase tickets for a $1 a piece or 6 tickets for $5! Weather permitting, this will be an excellent event to attend!!
Thanks! Dan -CD.

Sounds good buddy
Thanks for the clarification due to the flyer saying open flying after 2:00. Flying till dark is GREAT

I will be out there for sure and I will try to get the TORCHS crew out as well.

EXCELLENT!

Yes, we made a mistake on the poster, and didn't notice it in time. Our artist that did them for us used the previous time from the War Bird! So, bring plenty of fuel or batteries! Incase you didn't see it or know, we do have charging stations for 110V/12V hook ups. Remember too, if you don't want an early morning drive, we have worked out the hotel rate at the SpringHills Marriott for $69 plus tax. Just mention you are there for the SPARKS' heli event or ask for Octavio, and he will set you up.
Looking forward to seeing and meeting all of you!!

Tomorrow is the Day!!

Pilots!! Tomorrow is the day of fun at SPARKS Heli Fun Fly, Races, and Spot landings. After this front blows through, tomorrow is supposed to be clear, crisp in the morning and warming to the mid-70's in the afternoon! Winds won't be bad at around 10mph.
http://www.usairnet.com/cgi-bin/lau...a=KSPG&state=FL

We also have a new weather station installed at the field. What is nice about it too, is the map for those that aren't familiar on how to get to our field. There is a map also on our web site.

http://www.pwsweather.com/obs/SPARKSRC.html

Hope you all can still make it! And, remember, if you don't want to make the early morning drive, or want to stay over Saturday night, we have a special rate at the SpringHill Marriott. You are welcome to fly as Guest of SPARKS for Sunday too. NO EVENT on Sunday!! Just Saturday!!! Thanks for following this forum!! Dan T. Sharp-CD.
