I agree with AmazingMrD last year was a blast. Looking forward to tearing up the skies with my N5c again.

Hey guys!!!

We are in the planning stages of the fun fly and I'm looking for some input. What lunch time events would you want to see/participate in? We want to keep it interesting for both the pilots and the spectators.

We had a fixed wing fun-fly timed event where you took off from a lined box on the runway, did 3 flips, landed in the box and then had to roll a 7 with a pair of dice. I think this one would work out well for more seasoned pilots but would limit the beginners like me that still can't flip.

We are open for any and all suggestions and your input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Tim.

Sorry to report that a family situation developed that will prevent me from attending as I had planned. I hope you have great weather and even more participants than last year. I'll keep an eye out for your event next year.

Fly safe & have fun.

Hey guys!!

We are about a month out. We have a couple of events planned. First is an autorotation spot landing contest and the other is a three flips and roll timed contest. Should be a LOT of fun for both the flyers and the spectators. Hobbytown USA is once again going to be a major sponsor so look for some great raffle/contest prizes. This is shaping up to be another great event. Late October/Early November is also great time to tour the Smoky Mountains. The leaves will be in their full fall splendor.

We hope to see everyone there!!! If you have any questions, shoot me a PM.

Thanks,

Tim.

1 Week to go!!!

Weather is looking great!!! Lows in the mid 40's and highs in the mid 60's with light winds with 10% chance of rain.

We have plenty of space for camping. I will be opening the field on Friday evening. Gate may be shut but it will not be locked.

Come on out and enjoy some great flying weather!!!

I'm sorry that you won't be able to make it David. I was looking forward to seeing the scale birds. The weekend is looking great and we'll be sure to take plenty of pictures and videos.

I want to send out a bit THANK YOU to everyone that attended this year. The weather was perfect and flying was spectacular!!! You guys are the best!!! I was able to see some old friends and make a few more. Can't ask for more than that.

We are already looking forward to next year and would like your feedback on the timing of the event. Spring, summer or fall? Which would work better for you?

Tim.
