SMALL 07, June 1,2,3 Little Rock Arkansas

Got my SMALL flyer today
YIP YIP YIPPEE
No engines larger the 0.26cid and electric of similar size.(Multiple engines OK)
Looks like it will be held at the same field as last year.

The Fraternal Assoc. of R/C Modelers ( rcfarmclub.com ) really made us feel welcome last year.

Thanks to Ron Stanfield for keeping it going another year.

Don't know what it is about this event, It's not the biggest but I think it's one of the best.
I always have a blast.

My bride will be about 8 months pregnant in June and it may be the last event I can go to for the next 18 years.
So I plan to make the best of it.

Larry

Got to get her on the cover of "BACKYARD FLYER"

Hoping to have a couple of new models for SMALL.

Hay Larry, I saw your face on a thread for the PHX fun fly. . . .Wow long drive for you.
I'll bet you will get more stick time at SMALL in one day than you did at the whole E festival.

Hay Tom, two words. . .Tent poles.


People with trailers . . .
I stayed at the airport Marriott last year.
No place for a car with a trailer.
They sell the extra parking spaces to travelers.
The Holiday inn across the street looked good but since they have an airport
shuttle I'd bet they do the same thing. . . . So
I went with the Red Roof on the list. They said I would be able to see the
truck from my room. I asked because I'm not familiar with area.
(but it is closer to the field.)

OK, well the good news is that Mountain Models is going to go to SMALL this year!

The bad news is that I lost all my links and don't know who to contact. I just can't find the web site or contact info. Can someone forward it to me, pretty please?

There is not really a SMALL web site, per se.

Here is the FARM club web site, with a map to the field and pictures from past SMALL Steps events:

Brian,

Glad you can come this year. Bring some planes to fly! Contrary to some events, we spend more time flying than sitting in the 'booth'.

Thomas,

Thanks, that helps a little bit. Can someone give me the CD or site person info to contact though?

Charlie,

You mean I might get a chance to get out of the booth for more than a bathroom break!? That's OUTSTANDING!

Thanks,
Brian

OK, I'm a moron! Why didn't I think of that? Certainly not enough coffee this morning!

OK, we'll be there this year! Now, back to your regularly scheduled SMALL discussion.

Brian,

Yep, fly a lot, talk a lot. Sit at the 'booth' only for the shade

Oh, and bring LOT's of water, a good hat, and bug spray. They have these really nasty little black bugs that bite your hand right in the middle of an approach

If we're lucky the temp will stay around 90. The humidity hovers around 100%. Yech. The flying field is grass. They will mow it a bit shorter than normal on Thu (not quite like a golf fairway, but, close). It is nice and smooth, but, some LG won't handle it.

And, all the trim settings on your planes will change (balsa). On one of mine the fuse swelled about 1/8", making for a lot of down trim.

After seeing the bunch of thousands of items in the SEFF raffle it just go me thinking.

I almost hate to ask about the Raffle this year.

Don't mean to sound mean, but this guy likes to win stuff.
Last years was OK, but it did not inspire me to buy a lot of tickets.

Hope the people in charge are sending out lots of letters/e-mails begging for some free stuff, just for ME.

SMALL and SEFF are two totally different kind of events.

SEFF is more of a commercial showcase where mfgs show off their new stuff.

SMALL is a bunch of designers and associated strap hangers (like me) who get together to share ideas, fly, and generally hang out looking at each other's stuff.
