Just to clarify for you guys.... this is a one day event this year. Unlike in the past where we were a two day event we did not have the support to go two days this year, so Sunday is only the rain date.

Sorry guys, we may go back to two days next year.

Hope to see you all there this coming weekend. I expect a big turnout.

Keep em spinning...

Don't think you will be needing the rain date. Saturday's weather is looking great.

Those who say, "it can't be done", should not interrupt those, "who are doing it

Hey Jim! Me too, it looks very promising for the weather and we have just about got all our supplies in a row for Saturday. I am shooting for 30 registered pilots this year,,,,

COME ON everyone, bring whatever you have to fly be it gass, notri electirc 90 50 30 or Micro...

Lets make it a great day and dont forget the night flying.

Lots of places near to grab a dinner where you can take a break and come back at dusk.

We will be sending back images and a short article to the AMA magazine for publication.

Lets break the record at Pinnacle Most heli pilots at our event.
30 cant be so hard to beat.
