Seminars and other fun things

On Friday and Saturday, Chris Sydor from Hobbico will be doing seminars on the TxR/Anylink system from Futaba. Welcome Chris, there should be quite a bit of interest in this new system. Also on Saturday will be the annual Team Futaba / Team Horizon golf challenge. Four competitors from each team trying to land golfballs from 100 yards into a ten foot circle! Team Futaba is anchored by Captain Frank Knoll, and team Horizon by Captain Matt Andren. The competition was fierce last year with Team Futaba comming out on top. Takes about 1/2 hour and is fun to watch. 2:00 Saturday on the golf range. Come out and cheer for your favorite team!

That was some of the most fun I have ever had. Pylon Racing. I had never raced before, I held my own for about 7 laps and then I lost. Never had that much fun. A real hoot to do. Exciting to fly, fun to watch and the winners really worked hard to earn their places.

I have to agree with Pete, great event. Wahoooo it is back.

I best get Susan working to finish my banner. She will put a Flutter-By on one side and the Flutter-Duck on the other side.

I will speak to her about it, you know, my bride has her own mind. She spent the day working with some dogs. Not ours.

The T-28's were a hoot to fly. They all flew well, provided some fun laps and even us inexpierenced pilots had a chance. They were so fun.

I still got mine, it is like Pete's, it is pretty beaten up, but I love the airframe.

This was one of the best Horizon mini airframes.
