Evidently there are a bunch of 3DHS Velox poping up in OH this spring. We're all going to try to get together at NEFI.

Ditto,,,,,, They setup canopies off site of main event, have their own parking lineup and confuse participants on where to setup. They really are one of whats wrong with the NEFI event.

Can't the local e-streamer guys take a weekend off and join the main event for a demo show?

What AMA feild is this event to be at? last years feild does not jive with the advertisement hype if even 200 people showed.

Electrics need to belly land as well, what AMA feild suites such types?

The event is being held at site 3, show center. Paved runway with cross wind runway and grass landing area.

I am working to try an incorporate the streamer combat guys so that everyone can fly together. Besides if you are not at show center, how are you going to know if you won any of the great raffle prizes?

Boy I couldn't agree more. These guys have access to this site 24/7. It seems like they could give up one weekend for this event. If you want to have a combat event, have one on a different week, not part of NEFI. More appropriate would be to be part of the noon demo to promote the event. This is supposed to be a fly in, not a contest and will do nothing except detract from the main event.

Beside that, with their specialized planes, someone showing up is not even able to join them.

Guantlet challenge??

Go ahead open the flood gates and I'll launch my full assault SSC E Falcon and even though its got a streamer.............

I want some butz..........

Setting up half dozen canopies and a dozen cars with planes and streamers at another one of the feilds is sure to confuse anyone not reading RCG.

What was JC thinking allowing this??? This is sure fire way to NOT grow a National event at a National site.

OR

Put them on the electric/parkflyer soaring feild outside the gate going to the hobby shop. what feild # is that? Need to start a "Send them to Feild #" campaign.........

We will have a K-9 demonstration courtesy of the Muncie Police Department. Their most recent police dog was purchased by Ozzy Osbourne with a generous $10,000.00 donation.

Ok, whoever is providing the plane for Hoot to fly in full contact combat needs to make it a space shuttle.
