Hi Lewis,
We will be there again with the fleet. Best electric event we go to every year. Got in 10 flights last year. Kind of a smaller Neat Fair.

Emails have been coming in so let me post answers to the 4 most popular


1) Is there any restrictions on what we can fly- size and speed wise
Ans: This field is HUGE, 1600' x 700 so pretty much anything can be and has been flown there. We just ask that you test fly any planes before the day of the event

2) You say $5 is for breakfest and lunch???
Ans: You got it, best deal in town. Breakfest served up as soon as you sign in and lunch around 12:30. There will be plenty to drink for everyone all day

3) Any radio restrictions?
Ans: 2.4 or FM is just fine. There has never been any radio problems there at all

4) How early can we get there to set up our sun shades and such, and is there enough room?
Ans: Guys all we ask is you wait to set up until 7:30. As far as space, there are over 700 feet of potential shade trees and pit area so space is NOT a problem

Let me know if you have any more questions, you can use my direct email at qm4020@yahoo.com- See you in August- Lewis

Hello,
3 weeks to the fly-in and everything looks great. The responce for the 3rd year in a row looks HUGE. Now as an added surprise we are going to have demos of electric control line at lunch time and an electric Deloreon on display. If you fly electric, or are even thinking about getting into it, come by and spend the day with us. It will be a lot of fun!

See you on August 11th

One week to go, can't wait. Bringing plenty of batteries and planes. Talk about fly till you drop, we flew from 9am -4:30 last year. Lewis and the Whitman Flyers are GREAT Hosts.

FINAL DECISION- Whitman Flyers Electric Fly-In is ON!!!The forecast has improved a lot over the last two hours now. It should be dry after 6am till about 3pm with only a 15% chance of a passing shower. It is supposed to be 83, mostly cloudly, winds out of the south/southwest at 7-10 mph. Should be just fine, I hope you can make it. Sounds like everyone is coming.

well, the stupid forecasters screwed us again!!!! we believed them, and slept in today......
imagine my surprise when i wake up at 9 am to a bright sunny day, without a cloud in the sky!!!
i hope all who went had a great time. i'm hoping the 8/18 funfly in n.j. won't be rained out, that looks like the last chance we will have to get out before the NEAT fair.....
