I haven`t seen a post for it yet but since it`s come back they`ve been holding it memorial weekend which is why attendence is much lower i think.

Hope they move it to the beginning of May the way it used to be, it would draw a better turnout i think.

I can remember back in the late 80's and early 90's the fantastic heli event held in Bakersfield out at the soccer park. This was before the lights and such. Huge attendance and an awesome raffle.

Yep, it used to be the west coast big event, the first weekend in May.

Now they been for last 2 years memorial weekend and they don`t get the turnout i think they can get if they move it back.

I understand that the soccer boys have more say so now which i guess is the reason why, it`s a shame.

Update. I talked to the event director last night, and the Blade Runners have decided it is a go again for this year.

The dates have been changed from Memorial day weekend, to the second weekend in May (the 8th, 9th, and 10th, Fri., Sat., and Sun.), for two reasons:

1. Some were unhappy with the old date conflicting with "other plans" they had for the Memorial Day weekend, and requests were made to move it off that weekend. But mainly the move was because...

2. To eliminate a conflict with the San Diego Fun-Fly (Palomar), that has been moved this year TO the Memorial Day weekend (now they can deal with the complaints ).

Stand-by for an official post from the Kern River Blade Runners, with no doubt a link to their web site for all the details.

For those who are tired of going to fun flys and flying at cramped pilot stations on dusty asphalt or worse, the Kern River Blade Runner's site at the Kern County Soccer Park is about as good as it gets for heli flying. OK, IRCHA's site is better, but the Blade Runner's site is pretty hard to beat.

See ya all there,

Dave (and Kyle) Dahl

Thanks Dave!!!

Haven't seen you and Kyle out at your usual field on weekend lately. Do we just happen to fly at different time, or are you guys flying somewhere else these days?
