We're pleased to announce that North Penn High School in Lansdale PA, 19446 is hosting another indoor funfly this January 26th, 2013. The event will take place in two of the high school’s gyms, with the divider removed between them. It is a large flying space. The ceiling is approximately 30ft high. The gyms share the long edge of the basketball court.

PILOT COST: a $10 cash only donation (offset table rental cost) to the club lets you fly all day. Grade school pilots 18 and under fly for free.
SPECTATOR COST: Free
BRING: AMA highly encouraged; limited A/C power

We have enough flight line for 10-12 active pilots.

However, we encourage sharing! Chairs will be provided. Electricity is limited, but there. Bring an extension cord. Onsite charging must be in a firebox or similar. Pilots can inhabit the bleachers as well.

FOOD: You can purchase hotdogs, drinks, and similar items at the snack bar (open 10:30am-2pm ish...). The snack bar revenues benefit our high school baseball team. Unfortunately, no food or drinks are permitted in the gyms. You'll have to eat and drink in the lobby area.

Seriously, any interested vendors please contact me.

Thanks to generosity in the past, our vendors donated items that we were lucky to raffle off and generate funds to run our club for another year. Please consider attending or donating items to raffle. voichemg@npenn.org

It's fly at your own risk. They seem like fun. Would you like to demo it for a few minutes during noontime? I could allow you to fly in the stands as well. I would hate to see the thing get shredded by a prop.

Actually I was thinking of really high near the ceiling or just off the floor an inch or two.

No, AMA is not required. I make my students get it and encourage everyone to get it for supporting our national organizations.

Although Santa didn't bring me any flying toys this year I'm still excited about the event this coming January 26th! I have to put the finishing my Park Scale Models Maule 7 that I started two months ago.
