And make no mistake, the aim of this event is FUN and flying. Only basic flying field safety rules will apply, and AMA membership is required. Concessions will be on-site on Saturday only- Hamburgers and Hot Dogs for lunch, $5 a meal, and Barbecue for dinner @ $6.00 for a full meal. Saturday we will also have some of the best pilots in the world for noon time demos, including Mac Hodge's famous 20 foot wingspan B-29. Heli pilots- WAIT till you see the demo lineup we have for you!! There will be several factory sponsored pilots on hand for the demos and to help you set up your heli. There will also be specials in the hobby shop throughout the weekend related to electric flight.

We do expect and have talked to several vendors that have expressed an interest in attending. If you are a vendor and would like to attend to sell or demo, please call me at the number below.

Event coordinator- Bill Davenport
CD- Mac Hodges

Visit the Hodges Hobbies website for local hotel information. There are camper hookups onsite that are available on a first come, first serve basis- please call 866-924-9505 for questions or reservations.

think SEFF lite...

Last year we had about 50 registered pilots....gave away numerous prizes in the raffle ( Nothing like the one at SEFF though ) had a fantastic noontime demo, (Including a heli demo that had you sucking wind wondering how he could do that that close to the ground ) and in general had a lot of fun.
If you are available, it is a great time to come out.
