the address is 4455 Raymond Rd. Livermore CA
google map it and use Sat view. The field is easy to see a little to the east of the address location.

Auto rotation contest
Some of us attended the heli event in Morgan Hill last weekend (great event BTW) and we talked up Rotorfest quite a bit. Sheldon's hobbies was there and they agreed to sponsor an auto-rotation spot landing contest at Rotorfest. Not sure what the prize will be be but it will be fun regardless.

Less than three weeks now. Who else is coming?

Will there be any food for sale at Rotorfest, or do I need to pack a lunch?

Good question. LFE does not sell food but we do include BBQ hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch and dinner as part of the event. We ask that guests and other non-pilots put some cash in the food donation jar. Sodas and bottled water are available and we ask for a donation for the drinks (.5-$1).

If you want something other than burgers and dogs, then you should bring it. We don't have a lot of side dishes or deserts planned and those are always nice. So we would welcome any "community food" brought on a pot-luck basis.

Still too early to tell if it will be a hot or mild day but it can get pretty toatsy in Livermore during the day and then drop down into the 50's after sunset. If you plan on staying for night flying, bring something warm to wear. It can get surprisingly cold at night. Last year's 4th of July in Livermore was really cold.

Banners are up
Our hosts, LFE have put up large banners at the entrance gate. Its a little exciting to see things coming togther. More pros are coming, more raffle donations, and more people in general. Long range weather forecast is looking good, 84 degrees. One week to go!
