Can't believe Mark can even get video at the last two events I have seen him at. He's too busy FLYING!!!
About time he deserves a break from all that video.

Any ideas on how to improve on the event for next year?

We had light participation for the Night Fly on Sat. night. a lot of people had already packed up.

I think next year moving the night fly to Friday night may be better choice.

Darrel, in regards to the weather- I don't know what you did different from years past

But Do It Again

Final tally for registered pilots 191, a all time event record

Fly with scheduled ground contact !

We flew both Friday and Saturday night. I had no idea that there was an official night fly though... I believe we were the last ones flying both nights

Seems as if most events nowadays, even though posted for Saturday/Sunday and some even Friday, most show up Friday/Saturday and then head out.
IRCHA another example, after night fly, everybody deserts the place.
Maybe Friday night is the answer,but when? After the fireworks? It was 10:30 when they were over.

Just remembering the 2013 Night Fly, and what a blast that was.

We did have to wait till after the fireworks, so it must have been on Friday in 2013.

10:30 is a little late for a start time.

And I doubt that we could convince them to move the fireworks to Saturday night

Thanks for the input.

Great Show
It was my first show of the year and first time at this show. So, I was overjoyed. The flying was of the chart; model and the full scale.

I won a battery pack and my brother from Texas won the heli. Go figure.
Of course Cincy was well represented.

Thanks for putting on a great event Darrell!!

This was my first US funfly and it won't be the last. My wife and I had a great time at the event. The local club guys were a great crew and it was nice to finally see some of the pro's in person.
It was also nice meeting some fellow Canadians at the event. Kevin (rappy112) I hope to see you at the Toronto Fun Fly.

Joe, Friday night fly and more speakers. We couldn't hear anything and almost missed the raffle.
Or maybe a fm transmitter?

FM Transmitter is a excellent idea.

With the flightline growing longer each year, I do not know if the cost of additional PA equipment would be feasible.
And turning up the volume on the existing system, would cause people adjacent to the speakers unable to carry on a conservation.

My wife will be pissed if this event doesn't happen. We use it as a model event for me and visit with old friends event for her.

I'm sure Big D will come thru, he's got lots going on.
