My old wing! I miss that plane a lot. I guess I'll have to make another one someday.

Bring all your friends. This is a great time and place to fly and enjoy the hobby. Lots of friendly folks, a great hobby shop and a premier flying field, food available on site, bathrooms and showers and free camping if you don't need one of the powered RV spots. What more could you want? Maybe a raffle and noon demo's including Mac's B-29...we can do that! See you there.

Greetings From Hodges Hobbies;
We have a couple of great events coming up here at Hodges Hobbies:
This weekend (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday Oct. 10-12) we are hosting the Rally of Eagles. This is a giant warbird and scale event. I think this is our 4th year hosting this event that was previously held in Florida and it has grown every year and has become one of the best events on the schedule.
The following weekend (Thursday through Satruday Oct. 17-19) we are having our fall electric event which we call HHAEFI (Hodges Hobbies All Electric Fly In). This event is our second largest event of the year with SEFF being the largest.
At both events we will have concessions catered by Kate's Soul Food so come out and enjoy a great meal while attending a couple of great fly-ins.
We've got the new Flyzone Hadron from Great Planes in stock...this is a fast, very maneuverable vectored thrust flying wing.
Also have the new Ultra Micro Icon A5 BNF with the AS3X system. This should be a lot of fun on the pond...just look out for the little alligator that is living in there now.
After a run of a little over 30 years Hodges Hobbies is closing the doors. I've decided it's time and will be winding things down over the next few months. I don't have a definite timetable or definite plan yet but things will grind to a halt sometime in the near future. It will be business as usual as the inventory goes down and expect some sales starting now with 20% off of everything in the store.
Take care, Mac

The hobby shop will be tapering down its operations over the next several weeks. The flying field will remain open and will continue hosting events like SEFF and HHAEFI.

Anything we can do for Mac on his way out? He was so influential to so many of us...

The much anticipated HHAEFI V8 shirt design! Just because it's an electric event doesn't mean that we can't have "big block" fun!

Preregistration ends tonight at midnight so make sure to get registered! Those who preregister enjoy discounted registration fees.
