Hey Ink if you don't pay your landing you can't fly.

the real fact is mike acussed me of being there flying all day friday and sat when i never flew either day, since i didnt even get there til after noon on sat and had nothing to fly at the time.

i was fixing my heli all day sat ,which was crashed before i got there and going around helping people so thats why it took so long and only reason i went there was to help out my buddy, i had no intentions to go but he asked me too. i got finished with it at about 6pm, which i had my friend that was registered for the funfly to try it for me.

i never flew it at all on friday wasnt even there or nor did i eat any of the meals you guys provided since i never registered. on sunday when he came up to me with additude i just gave it right back to him plus some more. i told him i would pay for flying on sunday but he didnt want to here it , i wasnt going to pay full landing fees for just one day and no meals.

this is the facts and you guys can say what ever you want. alot of people who were there know for fact what really happened so im not to concerned about your story or lies you want to tell about me.

the fact is for a CD of a heli event he shouldnt have done it the way he did it. he could have pulled me off to the side and talk to me but he wanted to be a big pushy bully about it and i wasnt going to hear that.

where im from people like that wake up with dead horse heads by there sides when they wake up!

i see he's not the CD anymore maybe theres a reason why.

i have been going to mayday and fall fest since 2004 and mayday was my first funfly ever and loved the place til recent years. nobody shows up anymore.

but the last few years the funflys have really sucked there since Mike Moss and Jude dont run them anymore.only reason i went is because all my La. buddies would go but they dont anymore.

just a bunch of old Plankers trying to have a funfly

I went out there today and it was pretty disappointing. I didnt even bother to get my stuff out of the car.

It was pretty windy. Only flew twice in two days and didn't really get to do anything except try to keep the dang thing from crashing (tail wasn't acting right). Thanks to Michael Pruitt for getting it lined out for me. Thanks to Nick Dugas for brushing off the runway with his Vblades, that was awesome Of course the south LA guys (Jason, Eric and crew) made for good company. I did miss Inky though

Ink, I didn't know any of that happened! WOW!!! I hate that because that was one funfly where Dylan and I could count on running into you and we've always enjoyed hanging out with you now and again.I really hope you will reconsider your position.

I did go today and I have to say the turnout was not in the same league as I have seen Mayday in the past (06, 07, 08). I didn't register until about noon today and I was #45 on the list. From an outsider's perspective it would appear that club has gone through some turmoil at least in regards to this funfly. Ya have to hand it to Mike Moss, he certainly could get people to show up. But he is no longer the CD of this event and the guys that are doing it now are doing their best. I think that is really all you can ask these days. I did enjoy myself and got to see some friends I haven't seen in a while. For me, it was a nice day. I genuinely hope others felt the same.

sorry guys but after what they pulled I will never go there again it's really not worth the effort to go there anymore. I will miss seeing everyone from down there but I'm sure we will see each other at other better funflys down the road.

I hated to have witnessed that incident at my very first heli fun fly. I'd never seen that before at any of the many planker events I've participated in. The whole calling the police thing by the CD was distressing even to me as a bystander. I hate the subsequent consequences even more

yeah he did why i dont know they asked me to leave and i did willingly and never said i wasnt, we had half our stuff packed up when he did, but Mike just had to be more of a ass then he was in the first place and try and prove some kind of point.

all it did was make someone who was supposed to be a Representative of the AMA being the Cd of a AMA sanctioned event look pretty dumb.

ink spot
iv been in the club since 06 and was president in 08 and this is the facts every-time we have had a flyin and inks spot has been there we have had to go and ask him to register.i don't now why but its just 30.00 dollars to help support our club.we have had hundreds of pilots and no problems.if you are going to fly you must register.that's the rules and we will stand behind that.and yes ink spot we are a bunch of plankers trying to keep mayday going.mike moss did not have a job or run a business.he had plenty of time to promote and get sponsors.we are doing the best we can to keep the mayday going.so quit being cheap and come and pay your 30.00 and help support our club.i would like to thank all the guys that came out this year and supported this event.we had a great time.as always the boys from the east were here,thanks mark,eric,al,and all the gang that help this year.next year will be better ink spot or not.
