Edson, Alberta, Canada
July 27th - July 29th 2012

Funfly date: July 27th - July 29th 2012

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello folks!

I am posting up a funfly for some good friends! This will be their "Second" funfly at the MAAC registered field just west of Edson, Alberta. Railway RC Flyers

You simply go from town mark 0 @ Dodge dealership, "west end out of city" 6.0kms to the Robb south turnoff, this is an EASY overpass and is only one west of town, on your right side you'll see a bulk UFA cardlock. So turn south there, now drive only 3.0 kms south to the "bickerdike" road, here you will turn WEST or right and follow the road only approxiametely 2.5-3.0kms and around an S bend on your left you will see "Randy & Tinas" RC Airfield. This IS where you turn left or south, then just follow into the field which is on a large open 40 acreas

Here are GPS #s...
Primary Field Coordinates (WGS84):
Latitude: +53° 32' 53"
Longitude: -116° 39' 1"

Airplanes, Helis all are welcome. There is some cut area for sure reasonable room for camping and so fourth. The field only started being built in 2010 October, but it is fantastic!

We hope to see everyone that can make it out, easy to find, easy going atmosphere and a ton of fun to take place. Feel free to bring what you like, beginner, expert it makes no difference this is all for fun! There will also be night flying as well! There will be some cut out areas to park campers, tents and so fourth so no worries on room to camp!

This year in 2012 we have a FULLY outfitted gazebo, "large" with wood heat stove, and fridge and working benches to! So... if you want to cook you are welcome to use the wood stove to cook burgers, hotdogs, steaks what ever you wish! Of course the fire will be brewing at night to keep all the pilots and guests toasty warm!

We look forward to seeing whoever can make this event as it will be a great one folks!

The field looks great. Maybe work will send me north, would like to join you.

Cheers,

Jeff

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

Just coming back from Edson (Randy & Tina's Funfly) and I have to admit

that it was one of the best funflys I have ever attended.

The atmosphere, the flightfield, the organisation and the food were simply outstanding.

And everything was for free!!! The food, the drinks, no pilot registration-fee, ...

Randy and Tina are the owners of this private flightfield and this couple is

totally infected by the heli-virus.

Just to give you and idea of what we had (which is not common at other funflys)

* A charging tent with a 6500 Watt generator

* Free food (even vegetarian choices) and ice cold drinks during the entire 3 days event.

* Free toys for the kids like styrofoam airplanes/ birds, glowsticks ...

* Even dog cookies

I brought my kid, my wife my dog - everybody was very happy!

It was just awesome

Can't wait for the next one coming up

Cheers Marc
