rain rain rain. We had a little break with some good flights from Aaron "shakey legs" Johnson and Bill "whoa" Rosa. Food is smelling good and you know what us pilots do in the rain? Eat....lol. Robinhoods barbecue is here, and all sorts of food being prepared. All part of the pilot entry. We are doing our rain dance hoping it will go away soon.

Randy - thanks for planning an excellent event! We had a great time coming out despite the weather. Great flying site, great bunch of guys, and all things helicopters! We will attend for as long as this event is held! The nice package of what is included in registration was a bonus! Two meal tickets? Wow! Great T-shirt!
Thanks for everything!

Hey guys thank you to all of you that attended. I hope you enjoyed the food and had plenty of food. Great job of flying by those who did. We thought we had everything in order but unfortunately this year the weather did not cooperate.

We hope you all enjoyed the shirts and the other little giveaways.

Since we did not get the autorotation contest off or the night fly we may have a "make-up" event (lol we still have the plaques). Keep an eye here for this. We may hold this at our other field (right in Mount Pleasant). The club will have a meeting on this next week. Keep your pilot ID cards because the thought is NO ENTRY FEE for those able to show their 2011 Spring Fling pilot ID card.

The raffle winners will be announced Sunday and posted on here.

Thanks again from all of us at MMRCHA for your support

Randy

Randy, thanks for having us up to your place again. Did alot of flying on Friday and due to the weather was limited to our flying on Saturday. Still it was fun hanging out with the great people in the hobby and tasting the fine dining of the Mt Pleasant area (Robinhoods Barbecue). Dang Bill was that you, with the wind coming out of the east I think you owe GR an apology...

Bummer about the weather this weekend, especially considering how nice it was all week leading up to it. Still, excellent job by Randy and the rest of the crew. This is defiantly a must attend event each year. Will be watching for the make up date to see of I can make it. (Last 2 weekends in June work well, ha)

High Five to MMRCHA
Too bad about the wind and rain, but still it was a fun weekend and great to see all the guys after a long winter and even longer crappy spring. Great central location a really well thought out event. Randy, Bill and all your helpers are doing it just perfect.
Just got home after a 2nd wild night in the tent. Had that tent for 16 years but It finally met it's match last night and I threw in the towel at 6AM and packed up and came home. The EZ-up is in the dumpter, had it over the tent snf it blew apart in the night, then finally the tent poles shattered and pancaked down on me in the rain and gusts. Was like spending the night in a garbage bag on the wide open prairie. Looked over and the big top tent was half blown down too. Anyway, great event, good food, good friends and even better yet, we get to do it all again at Big D's event on Grosse Ile. D says there are still 2 spots left in the 3-D school. School is now even better, Matt Botos, Tim Jones and for even more fun Bert Kammerer. Don't miss your chance. Two good machines, lots of fuel or packs, a good charger and get ready to fly your butts off. Bert will be in your face and make sure you are flying every moment and if your not you will explaining to him why you aren't flying or ready to fly right then. Even though a little more costly than last year, that's because no sponsors are picking up some of their expenses, still cheaper than normal, thos3e 3D schools have typically been about $600 without lunch. So, give it up or give to Obama, 2 of you can still be the lucky ones.

Thanks for putting on the event Randy. Too bad mother nature wasn't so nice to us this year, but, it was good to see everybody and meet new guys as well. Heli event are always fun but one can only take the cold rain for so long. We packed it in Saturday right after dinner and looks like it was a good choice. Sorry about your canopy Mike!

Time to the new one
Not worried about the canopy, it's the one that went flying at Big D's two years ago, have a new warranty one in a box. 3 canopies lost to the wind this weekend.
