The Ft. Worth Thunderbirds are glad to once again hold the Heat Wave on July 15-17. Our old CD move to California but I have flown with him for years so I hope to learn from his experience. Justin Moore will be helping and flying as well. The focus this year will be to fly and have a good time. Looks like our field will not be underwater like last year so no more dusty roads for those of you that came last year. Hope to see you there.

By the way, I am trying to get Mike Goza to hold the drawings for the Team Raffle at the event. We've talked but he needs permission from the boss, like most of us. HAHAHA
Map to the field at the below link.

Thanks and hope to see you there.

Dusty roads is a huge understatement. It was like Mt St Helens ash.

Plannining on Coming
Hey Will,

I am planning on coming and Jacki may come with. I'm glad it will be at the other field I still haven't repaired my truck after last years event.

If Jacki comes we will have Zach with us, can you help me with infiormation for the closest hotel to the field?

Should be a good time, hopefully this year I won't crash, have someone rearend my truck, and no loctite issues to speak of.

Later,

Scott Glasgow

We will try to make it down. Like Scott said, hopefully there won't be any doubting Thomases regarding the topic of "why you should use Loctite on screws going into a metal swashplate".

Hotels
Sorry I have not gotten back sooner but life(work) has been hectic. I will post the hotel information this weekend. There are 3 local hotels, the Benbrook Inn, Motel6 and a Best Western. All three are only several years old. I will post the contact info later. By the way the "loctiteless" bird flies real well.

Ya'll take care and see you on the 15th/16th

There are 3 motels in the area that are very close to the field.
Motel 6

817-249-8885

Benbrook Inn and Suites
4844 Hwy 377 South
Benbrook Tx 76116
817-244-7711

Best Western Winscott Inn and Suites

Recommend the Best Western as the nicest

Also, 2 exits east on Bryant Irvin Road there is an Amerisuites and La Quinta. About a 10-15 drive from the field and close to shopping.

Heli Heat Wave
Let's see, middle of July in North Texas, I wonder what the temp going to be in Dec at the north pole. Adam just kidding, I bet it would not stop you from going to a cup race at Texas Motor Speedway in the middle of July. Bobby

I guess I'll have to go just to give Bobby some crap , since I won't see you at Fall Fest (TMS fall race).
