Eastern US Jet Meet

This is proposal is primarily oriented towards the potential East Coast event. If your are serious about attending a jet only event focused on EDF please respond, if you are not interested please do not as it will distort the results.

As a minimum I'm envisioning an event with a paved runway at least 400 feet long and a grass area available for bungee launchers to be set up for the duration. If the site could handle turbines (space and noise issues) then they would be welcome. ALL EDF's welcome BUT the CD would reserve the right to set time slots or minimum speeds or manage traffic at any time to accommodate the mix of aircraft types depending on who shows up. This is the flight-line boss system that works pretty well at Mid America - if 8 park fliers are ready to go they fly together, when heavy metal walks up they hold you until the foam gets cleared out but they don't let more PF's go up in the meantime.

We've got potential offers from Florida and Kentucky so far. What we do should be driven by willingness of EDF'ers to show up. There are only so many of us and if we do three different events in 3 locations at different times I'm afraid you'll only get 5 guys! Kentucky happens to be about equal distance from all locations out to the Mid West.

This would be a great opportunity for the EDF community to get together. Since I'm from Kentucky I can go to just about any of the locations. Of course I'm pulling for Kentucky but it's not exactly the EDF hot bed!

I'm in, just say where.
I don't really fit in the breakdown of aircraft though.
How about adding:

"3D EDF's that launch straight up"

If ya do a Florida gig it needs to be in the early fall

NYC area in summer would be great. The east cost has very calm mornings and evenings making for some great flying weather.

I am not exactly heavy metal, but I fly ROG and prob close to 80-90 mph but under 2 pounds. I went ahead and put HM seemed like a better fit speed wise.

I think it was stated in another thread but Fla is very travel friendly thanks to Disney and all that. Cheap rates could be had, and you have an exscuse for the Fam when you go. Tell'em 2 days at the meet and 2 or 3 at Disney! haha Gotta think crafty when your married! Goergia is nice too though, you could have it in Agusta and call it the Jet Masters!

Let's let it go for a couple more days then we'll get to the critical question - exactly what site? Ky and Fl have potential sites, dunno where it would be in NY for instance. Someone would need to step up to the plate or desires are meaningless!
