Met some new faces this year and had a great time, although I crashed more this weekend than I have in the last 3 years OUCH.

As usual, a great event looking forward to it for years to come !

I came for a few hours as a spectator- awesome flying and reminded me of all the good times I've had in the hobby. Time to dust off my helis and get back flying so I can be there next year!

Thanks for pulling together such a great event.... I can't imagine a better venue than that place!

Some more pictures for you D
Sorry took so long, got my eyes all screwed up with wrong drops and A/C in truck went out and I ended up with my eyes a mess from pollen & R134a & compressor oil by Saturday night. Took 8 hours to drive home from one rest area to the next and into eye specialists Monday AM. Ended up with chemical film covering with chem burns to corneas and eyelids all infected. Can barely see now with bandage contacts in and steroids & antibiotic ointment in 4 times a day. I am OK now but won't be flying for a few days, light hurts and sleeping with plastic covers over eyes so I don't rub or touch anything. Didn't fly much by late Saturday, could barely see heli or read computer.
Anyway, fun event, liked the venue. See you you all soon.

I think it was the RAPTOR GODS punishing me for getting the Trex 700 done and flying, I went to the dark-side literally.

I can see clearly now
Thanks guys, just got new bandage contacts in & docs say
all is going fine. Change again tomorrow, I can actually see
to drive just need the sunglasses for sure. Couple days and
all should be fine. Sure makes you think about what if, like
no more flying. Take care of your peepers guys.

Not to hijack the thread, it was great seeing all of you this past weekend and I have lots of work to do to catch up. Lon, Johnny,Joe Mack, Bill Rosa all making huge moves, Rrok flew the best we have ever seen, Horseshoe Tom is flying great, Marshall says he's rusty, not that I could see, and Dave "Compass Killer" K is flying so outrageous that it looked scary at first but he is smacking it hard, must be the Tony Whiteside Affect working on him. John Cook smacking it too. As alway buds Mike & Adam keep pushing it and can wrench on anything.
