It's next to the waterfall - just south of the marina.

Any bets on which page this thread will be on when we actually start talking about the Memorial Day Fly-In?

I'm betting page 1 or 2 for me, but I have my settings tweaked.

the UPS man brought Dad's float kit for the Airbike, he said looks like an easy assembly. i hope the winds are right so he can land the Airbike in your pond.

I'll have to jump onto that project as soon as we are back from SEFF in order to have the ready to go by Memorial Day.

Have you been flying it a lot lately?

I'd still love to get a little putter like an Airbike..

Hey Fellas. It's been a while, but I think I can make it Memorial Day. Like brivers said I too need too remember where the throttle is.

I've not been flying it as much as I'd like to have been. I flew for about 15 minutes last Sunday evening. It is always fun.

When I get the floats on it, I think I'll be flying it in and out of Andy's pond a lot.

So how is Andy's pond with today's rain. Here we got about an inch. I'll bet in Tanner you got a lot more rain than that today.

I got so much rain, the pond is overflowing. Looking at installing a whitewater kayaking course in the ditch at the far side of the field.

I guess I'd better not bring my other canoe. Some folk don't know how to do whitewater in a canoe.

OK, we're two weeks away from the Memorial Day Fly-In here. Let's make some plans.

Time
Unless you bring a couple of boxes of "Hot Nows" from Krispy Kreme, don't show up before 9am. We'll fly until dark. If you got lights, feel free to fly after dark.

Food
You're on your own for lunch, so bring a sandwich or something. We'll do BBQ (pulled pork) for supper. I need to get a headcount to know how much BBQ to have. I'll provide the BBQ, and we'll let you guys bring the fixings and drinks and such. Just post that you're coming, if you're gonna eat, what you're gonna bring, and how many are coming with ya.

Flying
Let's keep it all electric. If you've got something gas/glow you wanna bring, ask me about it and we'll see. As for organized flying, the only thing organized we may have is a LMR contest for folks with electric sailplanes. Other than that, it's open flying.

Bring your EZ-ups and chairs if you got 'em. There are some trees for shade if you'd rather set up under the trees. If you haven't been here before, PM me your email address and I'll send you some detailed directions.

Oh yeah, don't forget your float planes!

Andy
