SPEF 4th Annual Indoor Fly-In April 24-26 2009 Pics Added



Hey, Everyone!

I want to announce SPEF 4th Annual Electric Indoor Fun Fly!

The date for this event is Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, April 24-26, 2009! The location, once again, is at the Ollie Liner Center in Plainview, Texas, 2000 S Columbia St (47 miles north of Lubbock on I-27). This facility is 302' long, 136" Wide, 15' at roof base, and 25' at the peak. So it's BIG!

Flying will be from 8:00am to 10:00pm all three days. AMA membership required, along with a $10 per day landing fee for non-SPEF members which is used to pay for the rent and sanctioning fees. RV hook-ups are on site and will be available for the event.

20oz. weight limit and max 3 cell LiPo (or equal NiCad/NiMh) power pack. Aircraft that exceed this limit must be approved by the CD (Reegan May). Docile aircraft are likely to be approved.

Here are links to our past event threads:

Hope to see everyone there again,
Reegan

Mike,

Gary is like the energizer bunny. He never runs down. SPEF has made him the honorary gate keeper during our fly-ins. After all he is the last one to leave the OLC at night.

I'll be there barring any unforeseen changes in my status... I'm through with surgery and sitting in my hotel room in Dallas waiting for clearance to get back home on Monday. Everything went well, but will get the final news next week.

Hope you all enjoyed the San Angelo meet. Wish I could have been there. See you all next month!

John

Fellows, that makes four of us who couldn't make TINY this year. Reegan and I had to miss it to. I'm sure they were sad we weren't there, but I bet they had fun anyway.

John, great to hear that everything went well. Hope you get to come home soon.

Chris, good to hear that you will try to come. Were going to have a great event this year.

Wish I could be $$ recovered from TINY enough to make this one. I've always had fun when I've made it to SPEF.

James,

Looks like it's going to be a good event again this year. I have received several great items for our raffle and three days of flying. WOW!! It's going to be fun. So tell those New Mexico pilots to come on over to Plainview.

See you there,
Royce

I saw it!

I though my motor came off my plane, but it was just another plane stuck to it

I'm glad her Vapor didn't suffer any damage that kept it from flying again, at least it faired much better than mine did when I knocked it down from the ceiling with one of my own planes

fwiily, hopping that you can be $$ recovered. It's been too long since we have enjoyed your company.

Dave, great to hear that you are coming. But, sad to hear about Teresa's girly weekend. Haven't seen Teresa fly her Vapor since the Horseshoe event in Midland. We're gonna miss the Bee too!

Ernest, shame on you for picking on a girl. The ladies need air space too you know. LOL!

Again, sure hope that y'all can make it and looking forward to another great SPEF weekend.
