SEFF 2011 from the ATTF crew - Approx 1550 photos!!

Lets get this started. It is easier for me to add to a new thread, sorry PJ. I think we have around 1600 photos this year, so it is going to take a while.

This is the few Larry got when we arrived at the field at around 12:30 Friday night/Saturday morning. Laine and his lovely wife were still up and having a great time. Great to finally meet Kris aka Mrs. Mopar. WeatherVane and Firemanbill were also having big fun and Mac from the Ritewing ATTF compound was there and already setup. The Riverside crew, Nathan, Carey, Tony and Tim all rolled in shortly after and we had to go check out the cool stuff in everyones trailers.


Huge thanks to Larry for taking the time to shoot all these pics. Without him, ATTF would not have this type of coverage of the event. He is the man with the cam, and does a spectacular job and continues to amaze me with great photos.

Here are the pics from pre-SEFF Saturday. Cub fly-in was a blast. Cool seeing full scale planes on the field. Start of the camp setup and lots of chilling out with great friends.

Edit, forgive the changing of the full res size of the photos. Testing out best for speed and quality. Also looking for the limit of photos for each post.

Sunday....

Ninjas and big wind, I think these two commonly travel together. The MN crowd arrives, some kites get flown, planes get built and flown and crashed. No full scale planes today, just various RC models. SEFF hasn't begun at this point, so lots of maiden flights in the wind.

And SEFF officially starts, but with big wind. More Kites and not much flying, but still lots of fun to be had.

Tuesday at SEFF! Still some wind going on, but it gets better and we get more flying in. Bildos wife (who I now love) brings me Pie and Beef Jerky. I must say, there weren't a lot of women at SEFF, but I have a crush on just about all of them. They all seem to know how to take care of their man. If any of you have sisters.........

We could not have ordered better weather for the LMR on Thursday morning. Weds night was fun, but not quite as out of control as last year. Think this helped me in the contest also. I finished tied for 5th and my bud Tom Essex got 4th in his FIRST No Excuses SEFF LMR!! Impressive! Thanks Ric and Ernie for organizing the LMR yet again, one of the funnest events for me every year.

Friday and the wind returns. Still a great day. All the demo pilots did a great job flying in tough conditions. The 3D smack down was GREAT!! hope it becomes an annual event. Some serious talent involved and congrats to Joe for his win. Daniel and his brother Micheal were 2 pilots I had never heard of before SEFF, but I think we will see these brothers from Washington a lot in the future. Special shout out to Chris Mann, sucks he had to go first and had no idea what the competition was going to do.

Mr. Hodges can toss around a B-29 like no one else. It was awesome watching Just plane Chris and his expressions seeing it in person for the first time.
