"Ace in the hole" event...Oct 1. 2. 3. 2010 who's coming and whatcha bringin'?


Hey guys,
"Ace in the hole" (formerly known as "Superfly") in Las Vegas, Nevada is one week away now.
This is always a great event, and will be my third year. The turnout is always good and the weather has been about 80* in the past few years.

Darrel (Sugar bear36) was a great CD last year, and will surely put on a good event this year.

Here is the official website. www.vegasaceinthehole.com
Dry camping is available on site, at Bennett Field.

I Hope to see the usual guys there, as well as make some new friends.
We'll be a Sponsor there for the first time as Efflux RC. but will be bringing a few personal birds, as well as some ERC demo jets.

So chime in and tell (show) us what your bringing.

I finally spent some time on the MONSTER Squall tonite. She's ready to fly again. Although, not repainted yet it still looks like a Rat Rod, instead of like the photo.

Gary

I have in the past and will in the future do some of my BEST FLYING from the shade while sitting in the Coleman lawn chair!!

Shade is one of those things you NEED in Vegas - and you have to bring it with you!! LOL!!

I'll be there. I'll work on planes all week, so not sure what I'll bring just yet. I'd love to bring my big Kelly racer, but I don't think I can get it back on that runway and if I did, it would surely run off the end.

I just found out there's already (besides in the "events" section) another thread for this event in the Pusher Prop section, check it out, if you already haven't.

Yeah. Weather.com said 102 on Thurs down to 97 on Sun. We like it hot! Too bad the lipos don't.
