Micro at Horizon (JR) Indoor

So any other micro fliers coming to Horizon indoor next weekend besides the Fosses and Malinchaks?

Not sure if I qualify as a 'micro guy' , but I will have my scratch built Plantraco gutted biplane, and my just finished tonight conversion of a 16" indoor FAC scale Culver Cadet to Mini Vapor guts. Total weight is 11.3 grams.
Is there a designated zone for just micros that I can fly these in to prevent them from getting gobbled up?

Nice planes.

There is a micro area. But, it is separated from the main racetrack area only by a row of safety cones. So traffic from the main racetrack area does overfly the micro area. Another issue is ignorant/rude flyers that are pitted along the side wall of the dome. Some stand in the middle of the micro flying area while flying in the racetrack area AND give you the "evil eye" when you fly a micro past their face We typically walk out about half-way to the back wall and fly from there to avoid the stuff I mentioned above. There's quite a bit of space out there for true micro planes.

My son and I will be there on Friday.

Edit: Hey, I just noticed that you are local. I recall that the local club has access to the dome for flying during the winter months.

I am on vacation starting today for the Horizon Indoor! Cindy and I are looking forward to seeing everyone at this years event.

My only problem is that I am working like a dog to complete my models in time.

Joe.

Pete,

I had Cindy take off work tonight to leave tomorrow morning or afternoon. I am thinking we will arrive around 10pm.

Please save me some table space next to you guy's!

Thanks, Joe.
