It seems there are lots of cheap motels.

Hotels
That hotel is farther away from the flying field than the others. But if you don't mind driving a little I guess it is okay. Don't know how the rooms are though. There is also a Motel 6 but its about a mile further west of the field. Can't wait to see everyone.

There were pilots that showed up today. One that came from Alaska, Phillip and Frank. So they are getting a head start on the flying. Tomorrow is the intro to the field day and then Saturday will be the contests and flying day. The weather is going to be great for flying. See you here.

I want to send out a big thank you to all who I met at the fun fly. It was very nice and reminded me of fun fly events that we had about ten years ago... a very simple recipe of good people, good conversation and good flying!

For my friends who left Sat... the weather was extra nice on Sunday!!!

See you guys at Aerohobbies event in Nov!
