It is a small yard... you will have a hard time finding a spot for a tent.

I'm going to try to for sure.

I'm an electric only guy so it would probably be my Extreme flight plane and misc others like the funjet, etc... I'd like to try out the pond before SEFF so I'll bring something for that if I come.

Kewl! Even thought the pond has only a foot or two of water in it right now, it is plenty for a float plane or boat. My boy and I played in it yesterday.

nope.....gotta get another pump, motor, or whatever it's called. From what I gather, the well will only be to keep topped off due to evaporation any way.

Yeah. The old pump wasn't cutting it. They are getting a new pump and also putting it deeper so they can make sure it has plenty of water.
The output of the pump will only keep up with evaporation also... the rest will need to come from mother nature..
Or a center pivot irrigator...
