I think the Greenwood Lake Silent Fliers did a spectacular event.. The mayor and school superintendent were very impressed and have asked the club to do this on a monthly basis.....

Great bunch of kids to boot!!!! Nice looking moms also

I want to thank the organizers and the veteran flyers that helped me out and really may have sunk the hooks of the RC hobby into both of my kids more deeply than I have ever managed to.

If they happen on a monthly basis my children will clamor incessantly to attend, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Will drag mom along too if possible. Haven't had an indoor venue previously, which slanted my plane choices some.

Rich if those angry birds are gentle enough flyers you and I may need to talk, they've been mentioned quite a bit by my two little ones.

Very well done gentlemen, thanks very much.

And anyone who put up with the guy in the question mark hat that was me, friend away.

And anyone wondering about the swap meet I mentioned for next weekend, info here:

Depending on time (how close to end of event) I'm very nearby that location if anyone wants to build or needs a grown up beverage.

This was an outstanding good time. Can't thank enough all the people involved from the Mayor to Bergen County Silent Flyers, my family, the AMA and everyone else who helped out. Look forward to keeping this going with the village and the school. Before the event, I went to a village meeting to promote it, and that was aired on the local TV channel. The event was covered by one local newspaper reporter, and the schools business administrator will be sending a press package to a second local newspaper. I was also asked to be interviewed on a brand new local radio show for Greenwood Lake.

I learned a lot today from Dr.E and the gang, and look forward to continuing with that spirit. there are loads of possibilities here for people of all ages to have fun. It's a great opportunity for us already into the hobby to share with those who have an interest. Helping others is what it is all about. This is the future of our sport. The greatest aviators of our time have all got their start with model aircraft.
