We are very pleased to announce our second annual fun fly in Orlando, Florida. This will again be held at the RCACF (Radio Control Association of Central Florida) field December 11, 12 & 13 2009.

203 W Keene Rd, Apopka, Orange, Florida 32203

http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin...rchType=WEATHER

This is a great location for a fun fly and the weather in Orlando in December is nice with very low humidity and average temps in the upper 60’s to low 70’s. Lots of places to visit near by as well as Disney World of course if you decide to bring the family!

Once again we expect big names and lots of people! Last year we had over 125 registered pilots! The following pilots have already confirmed directly with me that they’ll be attending the event. Of course, it is quite early and this list will change drastically over the next few months. I’ll keep it up-to-date though!

* This is simple, we’ll sign up pilots during the event who want to participate in this non sponsored pilot contest. Pilots will simply need to fly a 4 minute routine to music and will be judged based on choreography, placement, originality and technical merit. The winner will take home a trophy and a price from one of our sponsors.

** The auto rotation contest will take place at one of our flight stations, pilots can sign up during the event at the registration booth.

Hotel Info

See the flyer below for hotel information. We recommend the Kirkman/Universal area hotels if you want to be closer to the attractions. However, this is about a 25 to 30 minute drive to the field. Otherwise, the Altamonte Springs area has nice hotels and is about 20 minutes from the field. Finally, the Apopka hotels are not as nice, but very close to the field (about 10 minutes).

We are working hard towards making this a great event with lots of good flying.

Hope to see you all here!

We had another meeting last night and this event i coming along really well.

The sponsor list is already 1/2 a page!

With 128 pilots our first year I think we might hit 200 this year.

We will also have shirts done this year with your Registration.

After what I heard today, Florida might actually fall into the ocean from our event being so big!

At this point I think we might be better off just selling tickets!

Have Rotors, Will Fly!
