$25.00 seems a bit steep for one day of flying. I would think more people would show if you lowered the price a little.
Just my 2 cents.

The Midwest fun fly was always free with free food. Hirobo Cup was free. Just went to the Chesaning FF, they only charged $5.00 for food, flying and a great time.

$25.00 just seems like more of a fund raiser than a funfly...IMHO.

The comparison to the Hirobo Cup isn't really apples to apples - MRC and Hirobo funded the event. We have to pay for everything ourselves, including the use of the field. The comparison to Chesaning is more correct, although they have their own large field that can be used. The comment is certainly valid and will be discussed (probably heavily) before the 2008 Fun Fly.

BTW, I was at Chesaning too and it was a great Fun Fly.

I didn't know that you had to pay for the use of the field. It would cost most of us $25.00 just in fuel to drive up there. Maybe next year you could just charge to cover the field cost and charge separately for the food and raffle. I know that you'd get a more guys from around here.

We Listened
OK, I realize it is a bit late, but from input here and other places, we decided to lower the pilot entry fee. Due to expenses that we have already incurred, we can't go as low as we want, but we have lowered the pilot entry fee to $15.

We will look at even more creative solutions and try to do even better next year. Hope we will see you there.

I second that! It's too far away to depend on predictions, but the weather channel right now predicts sun & cloud mix with a high of 73. I hope this holds or gets better. (How much better could it really get though?) OK, I'll take that.

This post is at 6:00 AM on Sunday the 9th. The weather channel shows chance of showers this entire day. However, I am leaving right now for the field. Some of us will be there rain or shine. We have a raffle that is published to happen at 3:00PM, so we will be there until at least that time. If the forecast is wrong - not that that would ever happen - we will be flying.
