An update: We're planning to have three fun-fly type contests -

1. Dead-stick spot landing contest - take off, kill your engine, person whose plane stops
closest to the X on the runway wins.
2. Golf ball target drop - using a golf ball in a cup rubber-banded to your plane, attempt to
drop the ball on a target in the grass beyond the runway. Closest to the target wins.
3. Limbo - fly beneath a progressively-lowered crepe paper streamer suspended between
bamboo poles.

Glow-engine trainers or high- or low-wing sport planes will be the weapons of choice. Electric aircraft
will be allowed, but must be of .40 glow size or larger (need to have the power and structural strength to carry the
cup and golf ball).

I'm going to try and scrape up some prizes for these events, but if nothing else we can award club t-shirts.

A big thank you to everyone who came out to the event. We had great weather and a good turn-out. Several contingents from other local clubs showed up, and I believe a good time was had by all.

If you didn't make it you missed your chance to see probably the largest plane to ever take part in a fun-fly event when Jonathan Baker won the golf ball drop contest but coasting in with his 40% Yak and pulling into a low hover right over the target!!! (I didn't get a photo since I was running the fun-fly events, but I'll try and get one from someone)
