Jeff had mentioned that it would be fun to have this event. The demolition derby will take place after 5:00 when all the Event flying would be over. I am going to provide a prize to the Survivor of the demolition derby.

Many thanks to Luke's for sponsoring the Foamie Demolition Derby and donating the prize. We at Thistledown Flyers really appreciate it. The Demolition Derby will take place Saturday night at around 9:30-10:00 p.m. under our stadium lights. It should spectacular!
We've established some simple rules.
Planes can weigh a maximum of 20 oz. No high speed planes please -- we're looking for slow-fliers, 3D planes, that sort of thing. If there are sufficient entries, we'll run heats of up to 10 planes at a time, with the survivors moving on to the final.
It's all about having fun and staying safe. So keep it sturdy but keep it light!
