Landing fee is $25, Steve says that you will still get a T-shirt if you don't pre-register while they last.

Here are a few more photos of the new field

I'm standing with my back up against the fence at the back of the property in these 3 pics.

Here are a few more shots

No Sir,

Brand new field, it's off the same road Route 17 about 3 miles closer to the interstate.

We tore down the covered pavilons and moved them to the new site.

rsalazar,

AWESOME, looking forward to it. I will be out at the field helping to setup Thursday, and will be there for the entire event.

Steve L. Paul and I will finalize everything today and post registration times, pilot meetings and any other important info later today.

Just 5 more days

Registration opens at 8:30 Friday morning, tee shirts will be given to registered pilots while they last, we do have a good supply.

The field is open pretty much Friday Am thru Sunday night, we will be night flying both Friday and Saturday nights. We will be setting up the FAI flight box Thursday, we expect to have 5 or 6 3D flight stations with a full FAI circuit area, and will accommodate newbies with an area to hover and anyone needing assistance please ask as I'm sure there will be sponsored reps attending that can help out.

There will be a pilots meeting Saturday morning around 9:30am to give everyone a chance to register that isn't arriving Friday. The field this year is HUGE with plenty of room so come have fun at the 4th annual event.

I'm going to be there all day Friday, but can't stay for the weekend for family commitments.

I'm happy to hear about the FAI flightline, as I have GOT to get some practice in before my own contest

See ya,

LOL,

Eric, we'll be there most of the day on Thursday so as long as we're not out on the field setting anything up I don't think it will be a problem to fire up and get some flyin in.

Directions from the north or south on I-75

I-75 to exit 163 (route 17) head east, it's a right off the highway ramp in either direction, travel approx 4 miles and take a right onto Washington Loop Road, it's on the corner just past a green building (Tai Food Resturant) waterplant is approx 2 miles on the right and the entrance to the field is just past it on the right.

Here is what the gate entrance looks like

Getting close now. The field is almost ready and I have received some great pilot prizes from Horizon Hobby, Flightpower USA, and Heli Direct. Looks like we are going to have some great weather. Can’t wait to see everone.

Donkey you have the right to remain silent what you lack is the capability
