Yippee!
WeaselFest 2015 April 11&12

The question as to when/if this year's event will be held so I called Michael and we determined that we have been traditionally having the event the second weekend of the month so that's when it will be!

Clear your calendars and let's have a ball in Santa Barbara!

Where is the nearest hotel? I want to go, but I've never been before.

I'm thinking of coming out there from Colorado. Is there a fee to play? Just general flying or is there a competition like combat or something?

No fees, this is a pretty informal get together, no official combat, it just happens all day with 15 plus planes up.
It looks like we will maybe do a BBQ isnstead of a dinner at a restaurant for the first time in a while. A weasel is not required, but similar size planes fly best together.
Lots of good you tube videos of past events. Here is one of the mountain site called "The ruins" there are other videos of same event (differant years) taken at the beach. We fly where the wind is best on the day of the event.

Yeah, good not to show video from the 2012 WF, we were freezing our collective a**'s off at the Ruins! Much better on Sunday, though.

All very informal but fun nonetheless. I tied a streamer to my Weasel to ID it amongst the 25 others. One plane had the exact color scheme as mine! Having one of the first Weasel Evos, I had sent a photo and Michael had published it in the Weasel photo gallery -- someone must have liked it!

nice. I wish I could but there is more chance of me being crowned King of Scotland than there is of my wife sleeping in a tent. And before you guys start, I want to bring the wife. We both enjoy these little flying trips (and I get laid!).
