OC's HELICOPTER GATHERING
The dates are September 3rd and 4th. "THIS COMING WEEKEND"
You are all invited to join in. Everyone is welcome.
You bring those helicopters, and the desire we all share for these things, and we will provide the rest.
If you attend the HELICOPTER GATHERING you won't be disapointed.
Here is some of things you will enjoy while here.
A very large and comfortable flying site. With many flying stations. We do not want to keep you BIG HITTERS sitting around waiting to fly. We will make extra flying stations if needed. You got the freq. pin you have at it. When you are done turn the freq. pin back in for the next person. Just that simple.
Free food and drinks for all who attend. That is where you will probably find me most of the time, eating.
All registered flyer's are entered into a free prize raffel. And the prizes are all decent and useful ones.
Helicopter kits, a complete radio system, a couple of governors from Model Avionics and CSM. A gift certificate for a new CSM 720 Smart lock gyro system. A couple sets of carbon fiber rotor blades. There are some other assorted prizes as well. We will post a list of the prize contributors when we have the total lists compiled. Our sincere thanks to our prize supporters. We all give them business. Please support them and their respective companies whenever you can. We make it happen for them through our support, and they make it happen for us with their great RC products and customer support.
We will hold the "DERBY" on Sunday after noon. The "DERBY" is our own little HELICOPTER GATHERING exclusive. Nothing hard to do at all. Just fly straight and level in a circle course. Last helicopter in the air wins. Last guy in the air still running with fuel wins 500. bucks. No special flying skills needed so anyone can enter. Take a shot. Should be a bit of fun huh?
We also will have some guest flyers here both days to knock our socks off.
To begin with "Alan and Danny Szabo" will be here. Putting it simply they will show us how it gets done. These guys need no introduction. If you don't know these brothers two wait until you get a load of their flying. In a word it is, "OUTSTANDING". Their father Alan Sr. will be here with them as well. The entire family is a pleasure to be with. They are helpful and sincere people along with being sound professtionals. My personal thanks to all of you for coming to be with us at the HELICOPTER GATHERING .
"Todd Bennet" will also be with us at the HELICOPTER GATHERING this weekend. This guy also needs no introduction. On Monday and Tuesday he will be running a 3 D training class for anyone who may be interested in learning the tricks of the trade. The guy is tops when it comes to teaching in the 3 D arena. If you wish to attend the class, or would like to get any information concerning the class, look up Todd or Ray Morey while you are at the HELICOPTER GATHERING. Thanks for coming to be with us Todd.
We will have some vendors who will be attending the HELICOPTER GATHERING as well this year.

There are a few more vendors who will attend the HELICOPTER GATHERING. But for the life of me I can not remember who else the event coordinator told me was coming. They will be there too.
If you are just learning to hover, or are a big 3D monster, you will be happy you made the effort to attend the HELICOPTER GATHERING this weekend. It starts this coming Saturday on September 3rd. and goes through Sunday September 4th. Near Atlantic City N.J. Every one who attends will have a great time. We promise.
Everyone here this weekend will come to share the one common passion we all have. RC helicopters. Nothing more and nothing less. Come and enjoy a truly fun packed weekend with RC helicopters, and the many people who fly them. There are exchanging of ideas, some good and some bad. I have most of the bad ideas so don't listen to me. There will be plenty of flying, and plenty of time for you to fly. There will be free food and prize raffels for all who attend. There will be many exciting and sincere RC helicopter buffs here for everyone to meet. Just to shoot the **** with and have a good time. Share the passion you have for these things with them. Just keep the flying safe for yourself and others. After that the rules are there are no rules. Have fun and while here and let it all hang out.
Again, the action starts this Saturday September 3rd at 9:00 A.M. Make it if you can. You will be delighted you came.
Back in the 1970's O.C. use to stand for "OUT OF CONTROL". Now it just stands for "OLD COOT". I still have a little life left in me though. Wait until you all get a load of me.
