Glad you're coming! Let's hope for wind gusts less than 20 and we should have a couple of great days of flying. The field is pretty and green.

I'll be there for sure. Hope the weather holds out.

Fellows, feel free to bring you ladies. My wife is coming with me. She is going to take anyone that wants to go shopping to the Katy Mills Mall. We have a Toyota Sequoia so she can take up to 6 people with her. Probably leave around 10:30 and be back around 4:30. Sure they will eat lunch and spend all of our money!

Thanks once again!
Got home a couple of hours ago and just wanted to thank everyone who came to the FunFly. We really enjoyed it this year and although the wind was pretty tough on Friday, Saturday was less windy and the temperature was great.

I really am honored to have been in the company of some fine folks for the past 36 hours--special thanks to our neighbors from Houston Sports Flyers, The Tom Bass Flyers, Austin, Bryan /College Station area and San Antonio RC Heli pilots. Also, I really appreciate Mike Goza, Kenny Siera, Larry George and Jarrett [Power RC Hobbies] for all the Total G and Rave ENV advice and help. I would not have found my MS night tail blade had Jack Marino not gotten up early this morning and walked the length of the field to find one of the two that decided to leave the grips a couple minutes into my first night flight on Saturday.

Curtis' Rave 90 ENV was well represented and the Rave 90 ENV kit we bought to raffle seemed to go over very well--Sloan, congrats again on the winning ticket and we really hope you enjoy it.

We had 40 registered pilots and everyone seemed to get as much flying as they wanted. In the Auto Competition, Mark Conroy won the Expert Class and Richard Sloan won the Novice class. Then we moved on to Drag Racing and yours truly could not figure out how to do a double elimination with an odd number of competitors so we voted and ended up have three race for the Unlimited Class money [Mark Conroy, Mike Goza and John Reyes]. It was a lot of fun and laughs running these three in three heats! John Welsch and John Reyes were our two honored crash victims; the first crash went to Mr. Welsch and the best crash to Mr. Reyes [who covered a large area of the field with a rolling / tumbling "funky chicken"].

I'm already thinking of where the next FunFly will be to gather in more good company! Thanks again to all who came, flew, spectated, etc..., I look so forward to doing this each year and it just gets better with time!

Last, but certainly not least, a big "Thank You" to our sponsors:

Ron's Heliproz South
John Holmes at Larry's Hobbies
Radio South
Micro Fasteners
Boca Bearing Co.
Horizon Hobby
Heliproz
Bryon Woods
JonsHeliWerx

[and if I missed someone, I'll supplement]
