Tyler, Midwest Sundowners regrets that a former member has treated others in this great hobby poorly. Please don't let this be a reflection on our club or our events. He is no longer on the roster list I have so I'm assuming he left the hobby.

The last time anyone heard from Tdriver was the day of the 2011 heli funfly. Nobody in the club has heard from him at all.

Ed, Thanks for the offer and I have your information in the PM you sent. I'll be in touch since we live so close.

The club is very exicted to have this event and we have a new shelter which is much bigger and we are working on having some type of power so the electric fliers can charge.

Glad everyone is getting pumped up for the event. The club has been putting a ton of work into the field and it will look better than it ever has. New shelter with pavement inside and probably 3 times as big as it was. Field was just rolled and it looks great.

We have a couple of demos:

Chris Gini is going to do a plane demo
Mitch is doing an X7 demo
and the club is trying to have one more mid day demo from a special guest but have not got confirmation as of yet....so i'll wait on that one.

We will have a 50/50 raffle
We will have some pilot prizes thanks to G&G Hobbies and Mitch Marozas plus we are working on others.

We will also be raffling off an AR7200 BeastX thanks to Horizon Hobby

We can fly at night but due to the field being on private property we have to stick with electrics only. You can bring an electric plane with lights if you like to fly only in the evening.

The food choices seem to be growing and we will have someone on the grill cooking for you guys.
