Oakdale,California E-Jets October 16th 2010

Hey Guys,
On October 16th 2010 at Oakdale, California we are having our second annual E-Jets Meet. This will be an electric jet meet. We have room for onsite RV Camping with no hook ups. There are also campsites on the other side of the reservoir that have hook ups and showers (but you need to make reservations for that) bring your fishing pole too. The field is a 10 minute drive from historic Oakdale Ca. There you will find hotels and food. Oakdale is the gateway to Yosemite National Park. It's a 2 1/2 hour drive to Yosemite. So anyone looking to make a little vacation can hit the meet then spend a few days in Yosemite. We are two hours east of San Francisco and the Napa Valley. One hour to Sacramento. So there is a ton to see in the area.
We have moved the dates to October which is much cooler than August. Most of October was 80 degrees.Just a great time of year to fly in California.
We are really hoping to have a great turn out next year and make it a great meet. So put it on your calendar and I will keep you updated on the meet. The club put me in charge of getting the word out and helping at the meet.
If you have any questions at all please P.M. me and I'll do my best to help you.

As we get closer to the event anyone that wants to come early we will have an added combo lock on the gate for the guys coming early...PM me as the events gets close and I'll give out that combo... but you must be a registered pilot on Saturday...

I know this is way in advance but want everyone to be able to plan for it.
Also if you do plan on staying in Yosemite make reservations at least three months in advance.

Thanks guys
Ron

You should come out Steve... it would be a great vacation. If you havn't seen Yosemite Valley it's just unreal! It's a international destination...you should try and plan time to see it while your here.

Well there's California Jets in March, How about San Jose E-Jets?
Oakdale is also planning a turbine and electric meet ... no date yet. But they wanted me to get the word out on the E-Jet meet... I know it's a long wait my friend but for someone like Steve coming overseas there's a lot of planning with work, airfare, hotels, and I want people to have time to book Yosemite if they would like... Yosemite is my favorite place on earth
Plus this will give you time to build a huge fleet to bring to the meet

And that's just what we would like to see this grow into...
we have the site and space that's for sure... add how central we are to so many attractions, I'm sure we can make it a great event

I wanted to update some info as we have been planning for the event.

It's a one day event on Saturday, but we are inviting anyone that is going to fly in the event to show up Thursday and Friday and fly,campout or both.

We also will have a 4200 watt generator on site for power. We are not sure how many chargers this will run. We are guessing 5 to 10 guys. Bring a power source if you have one, this we be for those that don't.

We also will have food for sale, BBQ Burgers and Hot dogs.

So it's going to be a really low key no stress fun event! just fly, BS and have fun
