SMALL Event Threads on RC Groups


This is a thread that brings together all of the SMALL threads on RC Groups. It is a counterpart to Thomas B's thread on RC Universe that has a list of all the SMALLs and their locations: History of the SMALL events...locations by the year and other information: http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_10...m.htm#10588385

I will put the main list in the second post of this thread and reserve a few of the posts after that one possibly for threads for the different locations SMALL has been held at. This way the important stuff of the thread will always stay on the first page while the discussion about it trails off into the following pages.

I've put up what I found in Electric Flight Events and the trail gets cold around 2001. Thomas B told me the reason for that is that electric didn't take off until that time and most of the action was small fuel which is over in RC Universe.

My criteria is any thread involving a SMALL with significant information exchanged about that year's SMALL. You can PM me with the links or post on this thread and I will put it under the proper year.

The format is Thread Name, Poster, Link

I don't have a link to SMALL the year this photo was taken(mostly because it predates RCgroups.com by a couple years) But I thought some of the small vet's would get a kick out of it. Sadly I can't remember which year this was taken, my best guess is around 94. SMALL played a big part in my life when I was younger, I sold my first(only) construction article to airage in 02 thanks to Randy's help at the fly in. SMALL is hands down one of the best RC events in the world, the hospitality is second to none. A big thanks goes out from me and the Bowker family to all the small vet's old and new for keeping this event alive.

On a purely sentimental moment, when you guys are cracking open a cold one tonight(or tomorrow) please raise it with me to the memory of all who have been to SMALL and are no longer with us.

Chris,
Your photo is from the Punkin Patch so it is before '94. From left to right standing is Steve Staples-Betty Fox-Randy Randolph. Nealing is Joe Wagner and Emmet Frye.
Your attendance is needed. You would remember some of the attendees.
