Largest Event in NC, Sept 15-16!
OK boys and girls, our huge fall Fly-For-Tots event is just around the corner (September 15-16). It is the largest fly-in in NC, and has some of the biggest names in the business. We raised $10,000 last year, had 134 registered pilots, gave away thousands of $$ in prizes, and had a BLAST in the process.
We now have many THOUSANDS of $$ in prizes donated by our gratious sponsors. Have a look at the '07 sponsors page at. www.rd-rc.org . Click on "- FFT Sponsors/Prizes" in the LH menu. The list of prizes is Un-real!!
This event is open to all R/C pilots with AMA coverage. Several acres of camping and parking facilities are available, local hotels and resturants are close by, loads of local area shopping centers are all around us, etc. Come as early as 9/12 to set up and enjoy the site and flying. There is also a Saturday night film festival, cookout, and live music for your entertainment. Many vendors will be on site, as well as the HUGE RadioActive Air Shows' Flight Simulator.
The event is located just north of Zebulon, NC, in central North Carolina. Every penny from the event goes to the charity (Victory Junction Gang).
Some of the biggest names in the business will be there to talk, show, and perform as well. People like Quique Somenzini, Chris Hinson, David Hayes, Robert Vess, Jerry Smith, Elton Fairless, Jeff Holsinger, Joe Rafalowski, Jeff Foley, and more will be on site for the event. Have a look at the '07 Pilots page at. www.rd-rc.org . Click on - FFT Feature Pilots!" in the LH menu.
This event is for everyone, and all get to fly! If you have any questions, please email Larry Lewis at RCLARRY@aol.com , or give him a call at: (919) 231-4983
