I would like to propose the idea for all fun fly events for everyone present at the event gather together to take a moment of silence (60 full seconds). Before the silence, remind everyone about the deaths of 2013 and refresh everyone's reverence for our powerful machines, keeping a further distance forward away from the flight line to greatly minimize risk.

Please help in this way; it will make a large difference to come, and I'm sure the victims' families would not mind. As another thread has said, let these terrible deaths not go in vain.

Please do not reply here with controversial words. Only show your support, please.

Sincerely, thank you.

Play it safe!
Could not agree more. There is something both exciting and somewhat troubling to see people flying these incredible machines at high speeds making passes just a few feet from their bodies. A minor slip, a bout of dumb thumbs or a simple inopportune mechanical or electronic failure and we would witness another disaster, a life lost or terrible injury.

We are all taught to fly "three mistake high" to have a chance to save the aircraft in case we "lose it", but we are not told to fly "three mistakes away" from the aircraft to save injury to ourselves and others. It is time we all start to respect that concept.
