Countdown !

On the heals of a great event in Huntsville, I want to invite you all to this long term and well attended event!

I will put a sign on the entrance of the (dirt) road to the entrance of the field property. If you do a Google of: 35.989823, -86.418242 it will (should) get you to the entrance of the field.

Getting close (Nashville) I 840 to exit 62(rt 266 - Jefferson Pike -Murfreesboro) and go EAST. Mona road (only can turn North) has Barbecue place on corner. Go north on Mona and field drive is about 1/3 mile on right (east). Once you hear the banjo music, you are in the correct place

Due to popular demand, we are going to add F3N to the event as well!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at anytime.

Whoa!

After flying F schedule for the first time today, I may need to show up on Tuesday to practice.

Music City Championships

I am headed that way early Friday morning. Dave had to work so I'm rooming with Dennis. Looking forward to getting to actually fly both schedules, if poorly. See you all when I get there.

Another in the books!

My great thanks to the fine group of pilots that were part of this event!

We (I hope) all had a great time of flying and fellowship this weekend. The 2016 F3C schedule is a but more ....complex compared to the previous one. Several of us struggled but everyone safely took the models home without damage.

Weather was hot but managed to keep hydrated and safe.

I appreciate all for all of the pilots (that were not IRCHA officers) for being on time and moving the event along to finish five rounds and still get people on the road before 1:00.

Looking forward to seeing many of you in Urbana, OH in July as well as the US nationals in August.

Thanks for a great event.

Tim, Robert and EZ Flyers,
A big thanks for hosting the event again this year. I made it home at 11:15 pm EDT...!

I think we all had a great time and learned some stuff, appreciate the cooler full of cold water as it was surely needed.

I saw progression in everyone's flying since the Huntsville contest. I know I learned some stuff, and can't wait to get out and fly some more this weekend.

Regards,
Cliff

Many of us unintentionally participated in the freestyle portion of F3N; the results were too close to calculate however

See you all soon!
