Consider it done Steve!!!!!
Steve,

I will work on additional food vendors for next year. I think we are getting large enough to bring in additional sources for food and drink.

I'm working on several other enhancements for next year.

So stay tuned!!!!!!

Thank You
Darrell,
Thank you!! For all your time and effort you put into making this event happen.

Simply put for all those who havn't attended yet, and for those that have attended you know what I mean, this event is not substitutable in your funfly schedule... it is a must attend funfly!

It was great meeting several new people and catching up with friends this past weekend.

Thanks again for all the hard work Darrell and crew. This is definitely one of my favorite stops on the circuit each year. Special thanks to John Russman for the ride in the Skymaster. I will see everyone possibly at XFC but definitely at IRCHA.

The Detroit Mid American Fun Fly was a blast this year, good times were had by all!! The weather was a bit ominous at first, but ended up sorting itself out so everyone could do what they love most...fly, fly and fly some more! Darrell, you did an outstanding job organizing this event, focusing your attention on the hobbyists rather than the manufacturers and pro pilots, creating a truly relaxed, fun atmosphere that didn't alienate or overwhelm anyone. Well done Big D! Here are the pictures from the event. Please...tag yourself and your friends if you have a moment. Hope to see you all at this fantastic event next year!

Still in the planning stages Mike!!!!!
I have a lot of ideas to make the event better for everyone. For starters:

More food options
Better registration process
More Porta potties
Better T-shirt design
Bigger PA system
Bleachers
Large tent for eating and seminars
Enhancing the 3D contest
More raffle prizes including some cool non-hobby related stuff
More interaction with the fair
More Manufacturers displays
More publicity

and a few more things that I don't want to mention yet.

Stay tuned for more,

Big D.
