Speed runs at AEF 2010


We were asked to have a EDF Speed run at Arizona Electric Festival 2010.
See here. The AEF board will meet next week to decide to do it. I'm posting to see what interest there would be. Jim Drew would put the event/rules together with the AEF board. It will be using a remote radar gun. This would run 5:00 PM to 6:00PM Thursdat and Friday after normal flying.
This is for fun as there will be no awards other than bragging rights for the fastest EDF at AEF 2010.

I heard that they will be serving Purple Kool Aid at the event durring the speed run. hahahhaaaa!!!!

Also the low passes over the runway centerline this year sounds good, guess the Flight line boss aka safety nazi may of had a change of heart, who knows....... Guess they figured that all those years of people trying to do low passes over the outside edge of the runway with all the 3d guys flying in the same spot wasn't such a good idea.....

I'm going to try to make it out there, but chances are i'll be stuck on a big inspection on my Gulfstream..

This is being done after normal flying hours. The only planes in the air will be the EDF's. The detail are still being worked out.

My take? I was at E-Jets.....it caused more heartburn and hard feelings amongst the fans and particpants than it was worth.
Degenerated into protracted name calling and chest thumping between the boosters of the "3 Tribes" (ie; BVM-XPS-Tamjets).
After hours like you suggested? OK, slug it out.....just don't use up event hours.

Hoping to be there, but not to race.
