Fly-In - Indoor FunFly in South Eastern Pennsylvania (04-24-2010)

We're pleased to announce that North Penn High School in Lansdale PA, 19446 is hosting a SPRING indoor funfly this April 24th, 2010. The event will take place in two of the high school’s gyms, with the divider removed between them. It is a large flying space. The ceiling is approximately 30ft high. The gyms share the long edge of the basketball court.

GYM DIMENSIONS (both opened): 175ft Wide x 105ft Deep

A frequency board will be provided, but we are not impounding radios. Use of 2.4GHz is highly recommended.

Pilot registration, although it's not mandatory is found here.

We will post event information on our website after April 1st.

FOOD: You can purchase hotdogs, drinks, and similar items at the snack bar. The snack bar revenues benefit our Technology Student Association (TSA). Unfortunately, no food or drinks are permitted in the gyms. You have to eat and drink in the lobby area.

VENDORS: Vendors are welcome for the event. Contact if you're interested. Or call Mike Voicheck at 215.368.9800 Ext 1325.

If you plan on selling your old equipment, and using more than one table, please send me an email. The tables are expensive for us to rent, and last winter the place was crowded.

Strike does not affect fun-fly

The teacher strike at North Penn will NOT affect the fun fly scheduled for Saturday.

We are having the event as scheduled. Oh man, wait until you see the micro arena. Bring your little planes and helis. We're going to have fun!

Don't forget to bring money for food and vendors. Feel free to sell your stuff, just don't hog the tables.

With hours of 8:30am to 8:30pm, you're bound to have some fun. Pilots, please bring a $5 instead asking for change. I know this is a pain but it makes it so much easier for us.
