Our first event was a great event, we were surprised when Scott Cathey came, said he had a great time. We are hoping for an even better event in 2004. When we have more details worked out we will post the event flyer.

Make plans now to attend. See you all then.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for the kind words on our event. I look forward to you guys being there this year.

BTW, how are the auto's coming. I remember your excitement in Des Moines at your first full-down auto. I was just starting to learn them at that time too. Now I finish every tank with half a dozen autos with either my R30 or R50. Looking forward to the energy of the R60 next year.

Let us know when you settle on a date for your event.

Having Scott help me through that first auto was just the ticket! I too now finish each flight with at least one and my confidence has grown in all my flying because the idea of having the motor quit is not as threatening.....

Will let you know on our date -----

Did you fly today? It was 50 here and breezy but we did fly. Tomorrow looks about the same and we are plannign to tear it up then ...

Blue skies,

Rob

Rob,
Not so nice here. Low 30's yesterday. Supposed to have mid 40's today with 20+ wind. (Was 23 mph in Davenport at 7am). We have a family Christmas gathering at noon, but I may make it out before the party.

I only missed 2 or three weekends last year, but I don't feel so hardy or compelled this year.

Terry,

Have you guys set a date for NIRCHA fun fly yet. I had a conflict last year and had to miss it.

Enjoyed flying with you and the Chicago bunch in the Quad Cities last summer. Hope you can make it again this year.

I wish our club had a better field. I would love to have a funfly this year.
That way some of the members could actually see what helis are capable of, instead of me ranting and raving about what I have seen.
Also it would be alot of Fun to get everyone together.

I told everyone you were going to be there last night
I even saved you a chair and I put a hat back cause I knew you would have wanted to buy one of our all new NIRCHA hats
I gave up on you about 9:45 pm and went home
Maybe next month

Brian,
I'm gonna hold you to that, I may have to swing by your house and pick you up before spring in order for you to make it
You need to watch the newsletter we have a club fly/ picnic coming up in May out by my place on a ultralite airfield, you need to bring your camera ship out for that
does your camera ship like to roll down the salt dunes
