Fort Worth Thunderbirds Summer Float Fly in Fort Worth,TX: August 3, 2013

I want to extend an invitation to any and all R/Cers with float planes, seaplanes or any model that flys off water to come to the Fort Worth Thunderbirds Summer Float Fly on August 3. The site is Camp Joy Park on Lake Worth. The site is about 10 minutes east of Loop 820 in west Fort Worth, on the northwest shore of Lake Worth.

GPS Coordinates: 32.813669, -97.49186

http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=...7%2C-97.491689

Event hours are 9 till until it gets too hot to have much fun. Even in the heat of August, we usually fly until at least 2-3PM or later. Lots of great shade in the park, right next to the water.

Entry Fee is $20.00 and it includes lunch for the pilot. There will be a raffle!

While this event is open to all types of power, be it gas, glow or electric. This year there will be special awards for various type of seaplane models: Best Military Seaplane, Best Civilian Seaplane and Best Sport Seaplane Model. There will be awards for gas/glow models and for electric models, so bring both if you have them!

We are also considering a Technical Achievment award for innovative work in seaplane design, contruction or operation. This award will be open to all types of power.

Retrieval boats will be available for those occasional unlucky models that need a retrieve.

Will post links to some of the past events to show some of the great seaplane action that we have at this event. The Camp Joy seaplane site is superb!

Please, put this on your calender for August 3, 2013! Email me with any questions at tomblakeney28682@yahoo.com.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Keep an eye out for updates!
