Ha, you bit!! I knew that this would draw you out into the open. No more hiding behind trees and such like you did on our last outing in your own territory. Your coming into my territory now and your hide is mine Herr Baron, See you on Sunday!

Oh by the way, The rootbeer sounds like a great before flight beverage. I'll take you up on that one.

You keep mentioning "Sunday", what about Saturday in Half Moon Bay? You inlanders afraid of the coast and sea water? There is no shark here!

Camping at Half moon bay

Camping at Half Moon Bay

Per this website, the campgrounds are closed.

Can someone confirm that there is overnight camping with shower facilities there, or somewhere nearby?

I'm sure it would make it easier for those out of state, such as myself to plan a few nights at BAD.

thanks! Phil

Dear Brian:
The Dr 1 will not be flying at Half Moon Bay as it will be getting waxed and polished for it's fight on Sunday with Snoopy. However the Funky Chicken will try and come and soar with the seagulls on Saturday. I will bring some stuff to swap or sell. I need to make room for some upcoming reviews. I'll be taking a Voltair Cube for sale at Devil's Mt. but will probably not be bringing it to HMB. Will bring an Alycone glider RTF and a nice two channel 2-meter glider for sale as well as a 110" Elipsoid RTF. I'll also bring a couple park flyers for sale but not sure which ones yet. Probably bring a Viper Twin and a Spitfire kit. If they don't sell at HMB I will bring them to Devil Mt.
Both of these events are enjoyable because of the good people that put them own!
Brian, if you can make it to Devil Mt. I will try to protect you from Snoopy who crashed landed into your arm a few years ago when he was only a first Lt.

There used to be a private camp ground in the same general area called "Martin's Beach". Don't know if it's still in operation though. Maybe one of the locals can chime in here and give you Reno guys a hand. Sorry I can't be of more help, but per our phone conversation of last night Karen and I will be out of town for the next few days. Hoping to be back by Fri, but maybe not until Sat. If I don't see you at HMB I'll see you guys on Sun. at Devil Mt.

Camping at Half moon bay


Thanks, I found a place called Pelican Point RV Park which is only a few miles south of PAM.

And they have showers, which is of significant importance to me.

They allow tent camping, and have actual RV spots too.

First come, first serve.

I've dodged three, count 'em, THREE threats to my attendance of BAD this year already. I'm coming in low, beneath the radar. Flight plan is still looking good.... ETA 0800 on Saturday. Bonzaiiiii!!!!

Hey, what's the schedule for the event on Sat? Is it just gonna be open flying, or will there be categories like speed/scale/EDF/open/etc?

Devil Mountain, Sunday, Sept 28

Hi, I'm CD.

Raffle this year is looking good. Includes a 6 ft span World Models Piper Cub, fully assembled with Jeti 45 brushless motor and 40 amp controller and servos. There are other aircraft also being raffled. Our local hobby shop, Mike Mann's Hobby Town, Hobby Shack, and Dymond Motorsport have been particularly generous. Registered pilots get a ticket with there registration. Additional tickets are $1 each.

This year DVRC is opening the field for camping Saturday night. Our camping facilities are minimal, no showers, no flush toilets, limited running water sometimes. In fact, the field is on city land and normally the gates are locked, which would keep non-members from getting in, but two DVRC members (Phil Young and Jack Schonberger) will be camping out over night. They are planning to leave the gates closed but unlocked by 4:00 PM. (We have to keep the cows in), but if you have trouble getting in, you can contact Phill at (925) 519-8516.

I'll be at the first half of the BAD in Half Moon Bay on Saturday.

Look forward to seeing some old friends and making some new ones.

There is a small airport in HMB that you can land on
or the really small one that we fly on!

No formal event, just fun fly. Hope to see you there.

I will be covering BAD for Ezone so I will definitely be making both events but I will be mostly taking pictures and a few videos for the article reviewing the events for Ezone. I will be bringing a few planes for sale as posted earlier.
I will of course still have to kill Snoopy on Sunday but other then that I will be more cub reporter then pilot. Mike

I may be going to the Sunday Baron/Snoopy Airwar, now only if I can remember where did I put my suit of armor...? Or if I spray Armorall on my arm, will that protect me from Snoopy's prop blade?

I better take out a life insurance just in case....

Baron Von Heer, no problem with heat, just the humility....errr...humidity I can't handle.

Me thinks you've been hitting the "Root Beer" a little too heavily lately von Baron. "Snoop Dawg" will have to take you down again! And a rightous spanking it will be!!

Hey I only talk trash to Snoopy because I know he loves to go through the trash can and he loves it when he finds those treats intended for him.

I think you had better not get him all riled up Mike. You're just going to make things worse for yourself!

He's going to be a bear to be around for the rest of the week after this round. Maybe I should threaten to take a vacation and let him find someone else to tune the "Pup". Nah, like that's going to happen. I'm in there for the duration.

BTW, bring along an extra Root Beer for me as well, OK?
