i'l try to join you this year but not avalaible to do all the
AltitudeRC organisation... sorry
I think that all the pilot should accept to pay$ more to
help you get a big shelter in case of rain or excessive sun & heat.
Last year, the farm owner charge us big fees wich drawn
most of our revenues... pilots actually get a lot for what they
pay last year ! thanks to our sponsor again
Since this event happend in my city with lots of house in the
area, i'm asking , again this year , to avoid all gas model and
take care with eletric EDF that can also close the event in case
of excessive noise (2010 event was close by POLICE you
i think this spot is wonderfull to fly , but we need to take care of
the surrounding people :
Last year sponsor thanks video :

A little higher fee is not a problem if we get some shelter for the sun and rain, like a tent. Should be big enough to put the planes inside if it rains. Be aware that it is costly though, unless you have a sponsor like the city or a buisiness. I doubt you could have such a sponsor though because the event is closed to the public.
The other alternatives could be:
1- to mow a bigger pit area and each flyer can install his own gazebo and chairs. No table or center shelter so everyone has more room. .
2- Have a shelter like last year but for people only so everyone can benefit from the shade. Planes can stay outside. I don't understand why people bring planes they have to work on anyway, when going to an event like this, your gear should be ready and in flying order. Bring a spare in case you crash. If you crash both...well...take flying lessons

3 table i have bring serve as model repair or building ? we are now 90 days ahead of this event and you all have plenty of time to built now
Also agree with 2 planes ( mulet ) :
fpv plane are expensive $ but serious pilot should all try to afford at least 2 FPV plane...
for me , i chose to have one and only hobby : FPV ... all my $ go in this LOL
I agree with fees that goes with big shelter and many individual
smaller shelter from all pilot is the best $ idea . Remember that
small cheap shelter do not resiste to 25+kmh wind... you need to
add heavy duty strap to ground at each corner
last year i was happy to share my shelter (Guizmo took a part of the event
money to pay lumbers & tarp) but it was not big enough...
Table are also practical, please bring your own...

2 big tent will be available for flyers. The pit will be bigger mainly because we are waiting for pilots.
We will have another plane to give from Icare-RC !

we may have visitor from other planet , but still it may not
be the biggest FPV funfly of the universe LOL
this out of space FPV visitor should be flying at the event if wind take a brake
