Oklahoma Dustbowl V for Multiple Sclerosis Research Sept. 14th,15th Holdenville, Ok.

Oklahoma Dustbowl V
I want to get a head start on planing for this years event.
The date is not set yet. But of course will be in September!

I have been invited to attend a meeting of the airport board to talk about r/c at the airport and the fly in.
They have already been doing some cleaning and repairs there so it seems promising.

One thing that has been made known to me is that at the local lake float flying would be permitted as part of the flying if there was interest.
So I thought I would bring that up. Think about it.

Very glad to hear it!
I have an idea I want to talk about and get constructive comments on.
On the T shirts We have a new vender. Well she will give us a break on price for letting her put her company small on the shirts.
So it came to me why not sell space on the shirts. Thinking one line of text above the artwork and 3 lines below. If done right this could pay for the shirts completely. And allow me to sell them for about $8 and all of the money from sales would be profit to be donated.

Would this detract from the shirts? Or is it a good idea like it seems to me?

sounds like a very good idea. i don't see that distracting at all, it would just show that more people are behind the hobby than the normal person would think.

Kind of my thinking. Also it would give exposure to those who help out by buying a spot. My plans far are to do 100 shirts. More colors too then before.

Nico Hobbies has already confirmed that they will be donating again this year.
There are people like Pat that you can always count on to come through. Year after year.
Thanks Pat!

We need to set a date as soon as possible for the fly in. But when we do I want to be as sure as possible that we do not conflict with any other events.
The MS Society as of now is going to try and come. But they cannot come the weekend of the 21st and 22nd.
So please feel free to make suggestions!

Wes,

How far is Shawnee? Having trouble finding pet friendly hotels nearby.

Thanks,

Frank

PS. If I can help this year just let me know. You are doing great things and your cause is certainly worthy

Shawnee is about an hour away. You might also check in Okemah there is one there that is near the freeway. You might also check in Seminole. It is a little closer then Shawnee Did you check in Holdenville? What kind of pets are you bringing?
Frank your help would be greatly appreciated.
Wes

Thanks for the info Wes. Found the Rexdale Inn in Seminole accepts pets and the review is pretty good.

We have an Australian shepherd mix. Great dog but doesn't play well with others.

We had an Australian Shepard when I was a kid.
Glad you found someplace. And Seminole is a easy drive to Holdenville airport.

We had tried it in October before and the weather sucked! I am sort of kind of maybe thinking the first or second weekend in September. But just as a starting point.
I would really like to find out when any other events are taking place that might interfere with the fly in.

Possible dates

I have been looking at possible dates. So far there is no date that someone is not doing an event. The best date I can find so far is Sept 14 - 15 2013.
That has the least conflicts that I can see. The other events are a long way from Holdenville it looks like.
Thoughts?
