Hey, Everyone!

The date for this event is Saturday and Sunday, April 26-27, 2008! The location once again is at the Ollie Liner Center in Plainview, Texas, 2000 S Columbia St (47 miles north of Lubbock on I-27). This facility is 302' long, 136" Wide, 15' at roof base, and 25' at the peak. So it's BIG!

UPDATE: 1st SPEF F3P-C and D Pattern Contest! Saturday April 26th.
Entry fee is $10 with plaques given to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in both patterns. Contact mini ifo to sign up. More info is on post #17 .

Update: For all you early birds, OLC will be open for flying Friday from 8 am till 10 pm. $10 landing fee for all pilots.

We will be doing our famous RC Carrier landing as an event again this year. We all had a lot of fun with this last year and sr71fan can vouch for that! LOL!

Flying will be from 8:00am to 10:00pm both days. AMA membership required, along with a $10 per day landing fee for non-SPEF members which is used to pay for the rent and sanctioning fees. RV hook-ups are on site and will be available at the event.

20oz. weight limit and max 3 cell LiPo (or equal NiCad/NiMh) power pack. Aircraft that exceed this limit must be approved by the CD. Docile aircraft are likely to be approved.

Guys, any of you on the fence for a GREAT indoor event, this is a great one for us "mere mortal" flyers LOL. It is non-stop flying in a building the size of a football field! Since I am not the CD for this thing, I plan on playing non stop! Come fly the friendly indoor skies!

Reegan and Royce,

I just found out that Mark is working on a secret project for the event! It's supposed to be a secret, but then, he shouldn't have told ME !

I, for sure, will NOT have anything new.

Gary

P.S. Sorry Mark!
