E-Jets International 2015

E-Jets International will be held at the TORKS Model Airpark at Deer Creek State Park, September 11th, 12th, and 13th. September 10th will be an "open fly" day for modelers to tune up their jets in time for the official event.

The format this year will be similar to previous years with flying time separated between sub 100mph aircraft and hand-launched airframes, and higher performance airframes with landing gear. This will fluctuate depending on field demand. The event will have a more relaxed feel this year, as it did last year, as we get used to holding events at our new facility.

visit http://www.torks.com/ for field info and pics. Use explorer, chrome does not always work.

The new runway is about 900x60. Electric is available at the site for charging and basic needs. Concessions will also be available.

Here is a link to Deer Creek State Park, which also shows the other activities available at the park, and the lodge http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/deercreek // http://www.deercreekstateparklodge.com/



There are discounted rates for the lodge rooms and the cabins.

Lodge rooms (starting rate is $79). http://www.deercreekstateparklodge.c...k-lodge-rooms/

Cabins (starting rate at $169, but can sleep 6). http://www.deercreekstateparklodge.c...-creek-cabins/



Camping will be available on the model site (no hookups), but there might be a small cost associated with that since there is a camping fee for the park. We will look into this further.

We have a party room reserved at the Lodge (next to the bar and restaurant) for the Friday and Saturday night get togethers.

We will update this page as needed.

September yet?

I would like to mention that the TORKS organization is "All In" on this one. We have spent countless hours and thousands of dollars preparing this site for an event like E-Jets. The park is a wonderful vacation destination along with a great flying site. The lodge has both indoor and outdoor Olympic size pools, Golf Course, Marina and there is a great playground for kids within 1/4 mile of the site. The cabins are also VERY nice. The Lodge party room we have reserved has a fantastic view of the lake and is right next to the bar and restaurant. Pizzas and lite dinner options can be brought directly to our room. Not only do we want you pilots to have a fabulous time but your families and pets also! Looking forward to seeing everyone in September. Terry

Is there a promo code for the rates at Deer Creek or do I need to call and mention the event?

Should I plan to bring a portable shade structure and are there places to put them at the event?

You can call and ask for the event rate, or ... If you want to register for your room online, send me or Terry a pm and we will give you the registration code. They would rather us not publish that.

Yes, please plan on bringing a shade structure. There is grass and pavement throughout our flying site. We are working on ideas for securing the ez-ups on the pavement, the grass should be easy

JC, I remember your son from the Rideu event. Very nice young man. Really glad you are going to make it. The new site is very "Canadian". Pleasantly rustic and private. This thing is all about pilot enjoyment and plenty of flying, so bring lot's of batteries! See you soon my friend! Terry
