SMALL 2008; Little Rock, AR: May 30, 31 and June 1.

I have been in contact with Paul Willenborg about SMALL 2008. He just found out that the event is the last Friday and Saturday in May, plus June 1. The event is staying at the FARM club south of Little Rock, where it has been for the last two years.

Ron Stanfield is taking a very deserved retirement as CD after many years of hard work in this capacity.

Put it on your calendar...it is not to be missed!

I have never been to an event like SMALL but always wanted too. Looks like that is within reasonable driving distance from my place. Might make it a mini vacation destination. Thanks.

Thanks Thomas. I missed the event last year. I sure do hope I can be there in 2008. The site is really first class. This is an event to attend for sure.

Just 6 weeks until SMALL 2008! If the high price of gas has you wavering, buddy up with a flying pal and carpool to Little Rock!

I have been on a larger model detour, but after May 3, I have a few smaller models/projects to finish up for SMALL....

Looks like I might not be able to come down this year.
If I do, it will be a surprise for me and you.

Was looking forward to bring a couple new planes.

Larry,

I won't be making it either, gas is just too darn expensive for me. Hope that someone will post pictures for those of us who are not able to make it.

If gas keeps going upo, I will have to start carpooling and sharing expenses to some of these events, for sure.

SMALL will cost me about 160 for gas this year....luckily, I have a place to stay there and no motel expense.

I finished another model today...a small electric Rutan Quickie. Trying to finish my Alfa Ta-183 by tomorrow and a micro A-4 EDF on Tuesday.

Well, the Thursday "pre" event day at SMALL 2008 was GREAT...there are already 18 people signed up and lots of flying today, in near perfect conditions....high 80s, very light breezes.

Todays highlights include Sparky's beautiful new Pat Tridle designed DC-6B in vintage AA colors, Richard Ng's thrust vectoring F-22 model (INSANE manueavering ability) and Pat Tridles lovely scale models.
