5th Annual Rotors Over Miramar Fun Fly, July 13-14 at MCAS Miramar San Diego, CA
Miramar RC Flyers is pleased to announce the 5th Annual Rotors Over Miramar Fun Fly, July 13-14 at MCAS Miramar San Diego.

Contests will be determined by pilot interest. If there's no interest, there will be no contests.

Food and drink will be available for a small donation

***** NOTICE *****

Due to some ongoing issues with Base Command, Night flying is a no-go! Not exactly sure what is going on, but we've been asked to keep this one very low-key so overnight "camping" and night flying have been cancelled.

***** See my post below about the RV situation *****

Gates open at 7:00am on Saturday the 13th. Flying starts at 8am and ends at Sunset. We'll open the field at 7:00am on Sunday and we'll end the event between 2pm and 3pm on Sunday the 14th. The field *MUST* be vacated no later than 3:30pm on the 14th.

Registration costs as of 5/28/13 are $15 for Saturday/Sunday and $5 for Sunday only. Shirts have been ordered and will be done in time. Not sure what the costs will be until we get the final bill, but hopefully around the $10 mark.

All AMA and MRCF rules will be in effect. MRCF rules are available here: http://www.miramarrcflyers.com/inde.../s5-image-slide

For directions, visit http://www.miramarrcflyers.com/inde...tensions/s5-box

We hope to see you there!

Flying Site:
1. The MRCF field is located on an active military reserve and is subject to all of the base rules and regulations.
2. Smoking, alcohol consumption and illegal drug use are strictly prohibited at all times on the base. This is not negotiable! If you must smoke, please exit the gate to do so.
3. The flying field is situated within a nature preserve and all animals and vegetation on the site are protected.
4. Access to undeveloped areas is prohibited. Please do not “hike” out into the brushed areas. Large rattlesnakes are living around our field and we don’t want anyone getting bitten.
5. Do not disturb the wildlife. If you encounter a snake or other animal, back away and leave it alone.
6. All other MRCF club rules will be in effect. Those rules can be found at:
http://www.miramarrcflyers.com/inde.../s5-image-slide

Site Access:
1. The Miramar RC Flyers field is only accessible by way of a locked gate. Entry and exit are strictly controlled and everyone must be escorted to and from the field by a club member.
2. The entry gate will be open from 0700 until 1000 each morning of the event and then periodically throughout the day and again in the evening for those who wish to go get some dinner off-site.
3. If you arrive and the gate is locked, dial the number on the white board at the gate and tell the person that answers you’ve come for the fun fly. Someone will be sent down to let you in.
4. If you need to leave the field you will need to get a club member to escort you to the gate. Please be thoughtful of the club.

AMA Regulations:
1. The AMA National Model Aircraft Safety Code will be strictly enforced.
2. Valid AMA cards are *REQUIRED* for ALL pilots and must be shown at pilot registry.
3. Frequency control is in effect for anyone operating in the 72MHz bands. All 72 MHz band pilots will be required to place their AMA card in the appropriate frequency slot in the channel board and display the corresponding frequency pin in a visible location.

Flight Line:
1. All pilots *MUST* have a spotter.
2. The spotter is responsible for informing the pilot of “traffic” encroaching upon his defined airspace.
3. *ONE* photographer may stand with the pilot/spotter with the pilot’s permission.
4. No one is permitted past the pit fence other than the pilot, spotter and photographer as stated above.
5. Pilots waiting for a flight station may stage their aircraft and support gear in the pit area while they wait.
6. All spectators will be prohibited from entering the zone between the pits and the flight stations.

Turbine Aircraft:
1. All Turbine operators will be required to produce a current AMA turbine waiver at registration
2. All turbine operations will be subject to the AMA's Turbine Safety Regulations which can be found at: http://www.modelaircraft.org/PDF-files/510-A.pdf
3. All Turbine operations are subject to National Weather Service Fire Weather Planning Forecasts (FWZ), National Weather Service Red Flag Warnings and Fire Weather Watches for California. Red Flag = no fly. No exceptions. Red Flag status may be determined by visiting http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/firewx/cafw/index.php or http://www.nws.noaa.gov/

Hotels:
There are two hotels across the freeway from the field -

1. Holiday Inn (http://www.holidayinn.com/hotels/us...nmm/hoteldetail)
2. Best Western Plus. (http://www.bestwesternmiramar.com/)

OK, some bad news. Due to some issues with Base Command, we've been told there will be no RV camping and no night flying. We'll fly until sunset on Saturday the 13th, then unfortunately, we'll have to vacate the field.

I am looking into getting a local business to "donate" a corner of their parking lot for a few RVs overnight. I'll check to see if RVs at the field during the day will be ok - I don't see it as a problem, but I'll need to verify before I can confirm this.

OK guys, we will have shirts! I just got back from dropping off the deposit check. I'll be picking up shirts Friday afternoon.

I think we're gonna be looking at $10-$15/shirt when it's all said and done. I'll know for sure once I get the final invoice.

Still no news on the RV situation, but I've got a couple inquiries that have not been returned. As soon as I know, I'll update the first post and drop a reply in here.

Good news for the folks who want to haul their RVs in. The manager of the local Vons said we can use the NE corner of their parking lot to park overnight, as long as we're in after 8pm and gone before 7am and there are no more than 4 of us there. (I think we had 3 last year)

It's just a couple miles from the field. Here's the address:

10016 Scripps Ranch Blvd
San Diego, CA 92131
