Home from Dust Bowl V. Was a bit of a long day, but well worth it. Up at 3:45, on the road at 4:30, arrived at 8am at the field. Packed up at 3, home about 7pm.
Had a GREAT time! A fun and relaxed fly in at a great flying site held for a worthy cause and attended by a group of great guys. Got to fly a lot and took home all my models in the same condition they arrived in! Won a few things in the big raffle as well.
Was fun as always to meet a few guys from RCG and put a face with a screen name.
Thanks to those that helped out with the pop up shelter and for holding a couple of models while I assembled them (left my model stand at home)
Will plan on attending again next year, work and schedule permitting.
1987tc and Warningshot did a geat job running the event.
Put this one on your calender next year!

I am not sure how many were taken. I took a couple with my phone that I will try and upload in a bit.
I was glad to see that everyone was having a good time. And NO one lost a single plane! and that is great!
And Frank thanks again for all the hard work you put it. It is ver much appreciated!

New location of the fly in.
As some of you already know we are moving the location of the fly in.
The two choices right now are the airport in Henryetta and the industrial park in Okemah Oklahoma .
Both are very close to I40. Both have smooth long flying surfaces. I will post more as I have more information.
Okemah has the advantage of a great place for indoor flying. There is even a concession stand there. I have flown in there many times and loved flying there.
Henryetta also has a potential good indoor site that also has a concession stand. But it not as close to the main site for the fly in.

Wow... I am trying to get an FPV Fun Fly going in southern Oklahoma, and come over here and find out there has been a major event only next door, so to speak. Cool!

New Home for the Fly In!!
I had a very productive talk with the city manager in Henryetta, Oklahoma.
The result is we now have a new home for the fly in!
The surfaces are al freshly repaved and very smooth.
I will upload pictures soon. Henryetta is at the intersection of I40 and Hwy 75.
I am thinking the weekend of the 20th of September for the tentative date.
The airport will be closed to full size traffic for the fly in.
They seem very happy to cooperate with us to make this a great place for the fly in.
