Night Bowling at SEFF

Hi All,

More info to follow as to how we are going to do it this year. Got to change it a little from last year to protect everyone.

My daughter Jenny has agreed to provide the necessary "protection" if needed.

Matt, that looks like a pretty decent bit of protection!

Last year was "safe"... well, at least no one was killed.

I would rather see restrictions on the speed and weight of models than force everyone back behind a safety line (and I was an honorary cone at one point..)

Just sayin'

I'm trying to get everyone as close to the action as possible. What I want to do is make sure we don't get any planes in the crowd. Last year a plane hit a two year old. Lucky for us, it was a pilots boy, and he did not get hurt. I'll get together with Andy to make a drawing of what I have in mind. Don't worry, we'll still have fun.

Maybe limit the planes to pushers made of foam?

Not sure what you mean! I NEVER saw my 60" wing knock a cone off your head in the middle of the night!

As long as we're being honest about it, I never saw it either!

Gonna have to tone it down though. I think things got a bit wild last time.
