What an awesome field. That place has huge potential for future funflys. The weather on Sat was not too bad. Wind was moderate to low but sustained. It got a little chilly if you were in shorts. Almost no rain on Sat. I was a little disappointed that many who said they were coming simply didn't show up. Not too cool. I think they had over 60 pilots. Great showing considering this being their first gig and the weather threat. Probably could have broken 100 if there were more gonads passed out by the man above

It was run exceptionally well. All the guys an gals that prepared this event did a first class job. Staff was so polite it made the day trouble free and relaxing.

One the the things that stands out at this one was Curtis. This was a weekend with Curtis. I've met him a few times before but this was different. Since this was an early season funfly and not overcrowded, there was time to really ask questions and Curtis made himself available to everyone for whatever was needed. He even helped the crew tear down after the event was over. To all top pilots that represent the hobby.... this man is the one to look up to and be like.
Thank you Curtis for your time this weekend. Glad your hand is healing so well.

Jan the video is awesome. Thanks for doing it. It really gives you a great view of just how big the field is.

Bob, Paul, Darin, Kevin, Giovanni ... the names I can remember and everyone else that made this event happen... A BIG THANK YOU. Had a blast.

Mike

To Yak3 and all the members of the Rotor Friends club, great job on putting together a smooth and well run fun fly. It was great to have the opportunity to video such skilled flying.

I would like to thank Curtis and the other sponsored pilots for attending the fun fly. Everything I heard about Curtis is true. Always willing to help other pilots and his flying has to be seen in person to be appreciated. Even HD video does not do it justice.

I ask that you please be patient as I have about 200 minutes of video to sift through and edit. I also have many other irons in the fire. So it may take a while.

Again thank you Rotor Friends for a great weekend.
