We have some new sponsors I would like to mention. It is starting to look like we are going to have lots of stuff in the schwag department. A few have even mentioned giving us airframes, and we are optimistic they will come through!

Colpar Hobbies,
Action Hobbies,
Plane Fun RC,
DW Foamies,
Bad Brad Graphics,
and 3D Hobby Shop have all said they would like to contribute to our event.
I want to thank them all for their generous support, especially for our first year!

Our Noon demo is filling out well, and we might even have enough stuff going on to fill up the entire hour! There has been talk of a Mass Hover with Pro-Bros and the 3D Hobby Shop guys with their new 103" (sick bird).

Everybody keep your fingers crossed- if everyone comes through like they say we should be able to have a generous pool of door prizes, and maybe even a raffle for some airframes!

PLEASE RSVP we only have eight confirmed guys- even though over twenty have said they are attending! Don't get caught without lunch RSVP BEYOTCH!!!

And now I am proud to add Desert Aircraft to our growing Roster of sponsors!

I was informed today that Aeroworks and Action Hobbies are donating a .60-.90 size airframe as well! I'm getting more excited about this every day!

I feel like this is a waste of my time in this forum, but what the hell.

DA has made with $200 worth of gift certificates! A very generous contribution! We are very excited to have the sponsors we have! I am going out of town for two weeks and this will be my last update on the event until I get back. RCpilot has the stick from here on in. Remember, 'dry' camping is encouraged and I will be there as many nights as I can- come out Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. If anyone says anything tell them you are sponsored pilots and you are CODY WILSON's guests. If you have any problems call Chris Harris at the number listed on the event flyer.

Hope to see you guys out there!

Response to this event has been better than I had hoped, and we are only a day away! I have some work to do the next twelve hours, and will be picking up raffle prizes most of the afternoon. I will be bringing a ton of stuff to the event, and look forward to camping out tonight!

You can contact me at 720-313-0775 on the cell.

LMAO- thank you for being so understanding! We had a great time- and I did too thanks to your generosity! It was hard getting out to the line with so many people to BS with! But it was a treat when I was able to get out! Thanks again Joe- I look forward to seeing you at the sod farm or something. I have a Robin Hood 99" that I want to tow with- that way my sailplane carma stays good even flying gassers!

We had a super bad-ass event that surpassed even our wildest expectations, and lived up to the hype we piled onto it! Down and Dirty 3D on the DECK was the credo of the day!!! We had 24 registered pilots, gave out over $1,400 in pilot door prizes including an Aeroworks 35cc Extra! I did not hear a single complaint, and everyone was grateful that Colorado FINALLY had a real 3D event! Mark Dennis, Crazy Joe, River Front, Team Zimmerman all the way from SD, myself, and a few other guys brought out the big guns and represented well! The Pro Bros came out with a small raiding party and must have collectively logged at least ten hours of flight time! There was some fantastic flying! The kiddie pool, the camaraderie, and the fireside camping were my favorite parts. Of course the flying wasn't bad either!!!!

I am totally smoked, and all the pics I have are waiting to be downloaded from Kenspeckles camera. When we get that squared away we will do a photo barrage and hope we get some other folks to throw in some of their own pics!
