I can't wait for this one. I only had time to make it for one day last year and that was a BAD weather day. I hope we can get lucky with some clear skies this year.I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

You guys realize you are on the same weekend as Vegas? Normally most the pros that have come to your funfly in the past, go to Vegas.

Yep, Vegas is the same weekend as ours.

It was Vegas that moved around and decided they wanted to hold there event the same weekend. The Vegas event when it was originally started was the last weekend in January and has not been on the same weekend since it was started about 7 years ago. They have moved it nearly every year.

Don't know why they do that, we'll have a split crowd this year but we're always one of the largest events so it will still be loads of fun.

It's a 3' ditch that runs down the back side of our field ... Generally on Saturday afternoons, after everybody starts getting really cocky with their flying, pilots informally compete on how much cool stuff they can do "in" the ditch. It generally ends with carnage but is WAY cool to watch

Vegas Schmegas....Our field rocks come to our fun fly.
I think we have probably one of the best fields in the RC hobby period. It's totally wide open with pleasant scenery and tons of space. We also have Donkeys. How many flying fields do you know of that have donkeys? It will be fun to watch me start to think I can do all the things the experienced pilots will be doing. Witness me crash and laugh at my expense...Plus our event is going on it's 15th year and Vegas is still teething. Nuff said...

As for pros. Now this is not official. But I believe Colin Bell, Bobby Watts and Matt Botos will all be there.

@joec -- Matt Botos is confirmed, Miniature Aircraft will be there but I don't know if Bobby Watts will attend although he has for the past few years.

@tracvision -- We have plenty of room for motor homes, our field is huge, bring it!

Motorhomes up to 30-35 feet long will have no problem but the motorhomes that are like the Prevost bus frames won't be able to get into the field.
