WSE (Western States Electric) Fun Fly Event, June 4-6 at Apollo XI Field

The web page hasn't been updated yet, but all the CA clubs have it on their calendars as June 4-6th at Apollo XI field. I've been waiting for someone in the club to start a thread, but they all must be out flying.

http://www.westernefly.com/

I haven't been to this one yet, but plan on making the trip this year. It's close enough to Father's Day and my dad lives out there, so I'm gonna invite him to join me at the event. So it's time to load up the trailer with all my electrics and hit the road. It's only a ten hour drive. Should be worth it, especially since they'll likely be doing a night flight event again both Friday and Saturday nights. Awesome!

Who is bringing what?

My fleet will be Cox Pitts M12 27%
Falcon 120 flying 5" Ducted Fan on 12S
Fliton Extra 330
CMP Spitfire 50 & CMP P51 50
Omei Sailplane
A few night flyers

Can I just say how cool it is that a club actually has the rights to let people sleep on-site. Our local clubs have all had camping rights taken away, which really bites.

Corsair Nut, you going to this one? It'd be great to meet you and your dad, let you see your awesome Nacelle on that Falcon.

I wish they'd update the site soon. I'd like to come out as a vendor this year, but I'm also planning a trip to Florida in June. I need to make sure they don't conflict.

Yeah, I'm not sure what's going on at the club. Maybe they lost their web person. Their jet event hasn't been updated either. I've decided to skip it this year and go to Oregon with the family instead. Bummer, I've been looking forward to it for months, but I'm like you. I'm not gonna make plans for something that may or may not be happening.

Guys, I was at Apollo last weekend and they have it on their calendar for June 4-6. Don't know why the website has not been updated. I will try to find out.

Hey now,
I went last year and had a great time. Even though it's a long drive down from Jokeland it was well worth it. I prolly won't bring as many models this year, more jets and fewer stunters...
Now the big question; do I drive the big gas guzzeling beat van or the fun to drive but tiny Subaru Forester?

Whose F4 is that? HET or?? Looks quite nice. What power system is in it?

I sure wish they would update the WSE web iste to show SOMETHING that confirms this event is "ON" for this year? It is only like 6 weeks out now?

Bajora,

The event is definitely "on". It is on both the Valley Flyers calendar of events (see post 8), as well as posted physically on the calendar at the field itself.

But yeah, wish they'd update the website so that I can register!
