Lunch Menu Changes for Funfly
We have decided to offer Beef Burgers/ Sausages / Chicken Burgers as these can be cooked from frozen and will be easier to manage safely to ensure everyone is fed and healthy and happy ... the after dinner option is still available as we have reserved Crossroads restaurant and ask that you RSVP so that we can firm up number of pilots/lunch and let us know if you will be joining for dinner ( optional per person cost for n amazing buffet..turkey/roast beef etc...etc... lol )

Cheers

Funfly FAI/F3C update ...
A quick update , some folks have asked about the start time of the F3C competition and demo.. We anticipate this taking No more than 60min tops and it can and most likely will be broken flown into multiple flights as required... So in between there will be opportunity to fly... The time was a wee bit overestimated !! Plus we still have all morning and the rest of the afternoon !! Cheers hope to see some old and new faces !! Cheers

Funfly rescheduled date update
weather wise it's going to be a crapshoot ... I have yet to get confirmation from our farmer / landowner as to when the corn crop wall will be harvested... I will keep this thread updated and if no news from our end the. We may have to call it a wash for this year !
