Electrics over Tidewater "EOT" 24 & 25 September 2011 Newport News Virginia

EOT IS COMING!

Come join us join us for our 6th annual "Electrics over Tidewater" at the beautiful Newport News Park R/C Club 24 and 25 September 2011. Night flying til the cows come home on the the night of the 24th.

This is a low key fun fly with maybe an event or two thrown in, depends on what mood everyone is in... But of course we will have our combat! We have had some pretty good sessions in prior years, heck one year we had a Klingon Battle Cruiser loose it bridge to a Federation Starship, or was that a Zagi?? Oh well it's fun what ever it is.

If it's electric and it flies bring it! All types of aircraft are welcome. Last year we had everything from the PZ Micro stuff all the way up to a 27% Pitts. Rumor has it you might even get to see a Ritewing do in excess of 140mph!

AMA membership is required as this is a sanctioned event.

Landing fee for one/or both days is only $15. Lunch will be provided on Saturday and once again we will have the Langley Fire Departments famous "Raptor Afterburner Chili"! (it's not really that hot, but it's ohhh so tasty!)

Hope to see everyone then!

Bill & Andrew,

Thanks for the info about camping at the park... I plan to tent camp there...

Do you have any additional pointers? Like pre-registering with the campground, or the best locations at the campgrounds?

Thanks!

Kevin

Thanks, Andrew! I'll reserve a camping site near your site...

I read up on the Newport News Park website, and it sounds more like a nice state park than a typical city park... and the RC flying club's site is also in the same park... very cool...
