I am pleased to announce the second annual Silver Hills RC Heli funfly event near Coeur d'Alene, ID being held June 24-26th 2016. This field is huge and located directly across the street from a theme park (Silverwood Theme Park) and also next to an RV Park. So, bring the entire family for a great weekend of flying, and bring your RV if you have one, or bring your camping gear. There are also hotels close by.

Coordinates are 47.897429, -116.705542

Here it is on Google Maps:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/4...5542,181m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x0

This is an AMA sanctioned event. We will have a food vendor on site for breakfast, lunch and dinner (Great food too!). We're planning to have flood lights as well as night, but will require night pilots to zip tie something that will remain illuminated if the heli goes outside of the lights. The owner of the field has also installed showering facilities for this year, so we'll be doing it in style.

It's just going to be a chill weekend, no shutting down flight lines for demos, just a bunch of heli pilots getting together to hang out, fly, and have fun. Surely there will be stuff to raffle and/or give away, and will keep everyone updated with regards to the sponsors.

Here are some of the closest Hotels. Coeur d'Alene is about 20 minutes away and they are a lot of hotels there as well:

Athol Motel
5950 E Highway 54
Athol, ID
(208) 683-3476

White Horse
6248 W Maine St
Spirit Lake, ID
(208) 623-2353

Holiday Inn Express
151 W Orchard Ave
Hayden, ID
(208) 772-7900

Ponderosa Lodge Bed & Breakfast
2579 E Brunner Rd
Athol, ID
(208) 683-2290

Days Inn Coeur D Alene
2200 Northwest Blvd
Coeur D'Alene, ID
(800) 329-1073

It's about 1 hour drive from Spokane International Airport (GEG). If anyone has questions, don't hesitate to send me a PM. Hope to see a good turnout of heli friends from all around. :-)

Happy Landings,
-Deater "RC Dbutz" Butler

Hopefully I'll be able to make it to this year's event. I have replaced the travel trailer that burned up on my way home from Othello last year, so I'm hoping to be there.

And to think I lived in the area for 15 years and there was no heli presence when I lived there. Wish I could go....

There are places to ride dirtbikes all over town. There is a little backroad and some woods behind the field, not sure what all is back there though.
