Date change
Hi Guys!

OK we have a little change here with the date of our Funfly.
We will now be having our event on May 29 and 30th. I have edited the event calendar and this orig posting.

We had a close scheduling with a very popular event in our area and we were able to move our date to a less conflicting date.

I do hope this doesn't prevent anyone from coming to our event.

We will now be the FIRST Heli funfly in our area. So get in some early practice, and come enjoy.

Weather permitting we expect a very big turnout!

Thanks for your support last year, and we hope to impress you again this year. Dont forget we expect to have some Hirobo BIG Guns this year, an HDX raffle and other goodies.

Raja,
you are the only exception, with your generator you can stay up all day. Two gallons? You mean no in-flight refueling capability yet?

OK listen guys, we apologize for the date being moved like this. We are trying to please a few because of a conflict and when we moved to May 29-30 we didnt take into consideration its Memorial day.

So not sure yet the final date. Stay tuned, in a few days will will confirm and set in stone the day

OK its done, MAY 22-23rd. Sorry about the shifting dates but this year we moved off last years date because of ttall corn. We inadvertantly stepped close to another event and decided to move. Second date ended up Memorial day and thats not a good date for a funfly.

OK so were done moving this around.
Please except my apologies folks!

I hope I can go. I will be saving up for my vacation which is June 5-13 and even though there is no Landing fee, I will still need to fuel the truck plus meals, etc and I may have to save that for the vacation...

Good I can make it. I only live 3 miles from the field. Just a note I will have 4-5 cases of CP 30% Heli fuel I can sell if needed. Just ask Simmer to point me out.
