Either would probably work for me. We could try June at least one or two years and if it did not work as well, then go back to August. It certainly would be an interesting change.

Maybe the XFC could be held the week before and slide right into ircha, but whatever you do guys, please make the annoucement before the end of the year so vacations can be scheduled

I like the try it in June once attitude, as attendance didn't increase this year from the previous year.

IRCHA how many members do we have now?

You guys need to think about becoming members too! (If you aren't)

I paid my fees for a 2min flight at the Jamboree this year and once I landed saftly was totally satified with being a pilot at IRCHA only 2 months into the hobby.

Then once learning how important it is for me to be a member, I new my membership money was going to a great heli organization.

I mean they are willing to spend our membership dollars to put electricity on the site that isn't ours. Yet we have the biggest event there. This says something about the IRCHA Jamborie.

No matter what week it is my family will be there.

Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

Late June was in the high 70's for us in the Dayton area, which isn't far from Muncie, and it was very nice.

But regardless of when it is, the hubby and I will be there! No matter if we were just there the two weekends before it for XFC, we'll be there!

IRCHA has traditionally been the grand finale of the season. Nats and XFC are going on in June, and many events are now traditionally set in June (or anytime but mid August), because the event organizers want to AVOID the IRCHA dates.

Now you want to change all that, and start a domino effect of everyone else trying to get out of your way, when they've got traditional dates as well?

Re-setting it to June after all this time will upset many things in many ways, not immediately apparent. Including impacting all the international attendees, that have grown to depend on the traditional dates.

My input...leave it as is.

Leave it as it has been.

Change is not always a good thing, especially an international event.

Leave it as is for 2012 and take a vote Sat. night. You would then have a vote from the majority of those who actually attend IRCHA. These forum polls only reflect a portion of the attendees.

but there may be a lot of people who cannot attend in mid august, therefore they cannot cast a vote at the event because they wont be there, lol...

There is nearly a year to make plans, request time off, book flights. Local or internationally, I don't see the difference as long as a decision is made in a timely manner.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.
