"Bud Caddell Classic" Fly-In & Swap Meet - Oct. 29, 2011 in Ashville, AL

"2011 Bud Caddell Classic" A.K.A. "Good Ole Boy's Reunion".

Join our club, the Slasham Valley Irregulars, at our field located on the beautiful 110 acre Caddell estate for a day filled with fun, R/C flying, swapping, and selling.

Event Details:
- AMA membership required to fly
- Open to any type of R/C flying - Sport, Scale, 3D, Jets, Electric, Glow, Gas, etc.
- Event registration open at 8:00 A.M., Pilot's meeting at 9:00 A.M.
- $15 entry fee includes flying, selling, lunch, and 1 raffle ticket
- Concessions available
- Registered pilot and seller's raffle for prizes
- Limited 110V power available
- No hookups, but RV's, tents, and campers welcome
- 400' well manicured grass runway
- Large lake on the property for float flying, R/C boats, or doing a little "tail dunking" for the 3D guys

See the map and printable flyer attached.

We had a great turnout of about 50 registered pilots and sellers last year with lots of flying and selling and hope to make it even bigger this year. We hope to see you then!


Special Note Regarding this Event:
This is the 16th annual fly-in that has been in honor of the founder and mentor of our club, Mr. Marion C. “Bud” Caddell. Mr. Caddell passed away 10 years ago in 2001 and his dear wife and our friend, Mildred Caddell, passed away last August. We are having this fly-in in honor of Bud and Mildred, who’s generosity and legacy has touched many lives in Alabama and around the country. Their dream to have a place that they could share with Bud’s friends and others became a reality and it lives on today!
Note: This event is NOT open to the public as required by the land Trustees, only to AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) members, registered pilots, and their families. The front gate will be monitored to allow access to pilots only. No public will be allowed onto the property.


Thank you,
Dustin Boyd
President - SVI R/C Club, Inc.

Hey Dustin...thanks for the heads up. I'm looking forward to the swap meet. I've got a pile of electric, nitro, and gas airplane stuff that needs to go.

That sounds great guys! We had a lot of buying and selling activity last year (along with a lot of flying) and hopefully it will be even better this year. I was able to sell 4 planes myself last year.

Hey Tommy,
Not yet. I noticed that there's an application on the club's website, so I figured I'd just fill that out and send it in, just haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm glad to hear that your coming to our fly-in!

It sure does. I opened up the box to make sure the receiver was in there and I think I may a have drooled on it a little bit...it's a whole lot more radio than the DX-7 I'm sporting.
