Octoberfest Vintage Event October 8 and 9, 2011

The Cloud Kings RC Club of Oxford, PA is hosting Octoberfest, a vintage event for VR/CS and SAM airplanes on the Columbus Day weekend. Any airplane designed, built, published or flown prior to January 1, 1976 is eligible. The featured activities are:
VR/CS Class II and Class III pattern.
VR/CS Concours judging plus the 2011 theme design, the Joe Bridi Kaos in all it's forms.
SAM Concours judging.
Special event; Bill Northrop's Big John design judging and mass flight on Saturday. Duster and Galloping John are also welcome.
Open flying all day Saturday and Sunday.
Lunch available on the field
Tailgate sale
Saturday evening banquet
Pilot registration $15.

Lodging is available at the Best Western Inn, North East, MD. Twenty rooms have been set aside for the event. When you call, tell them you are attending the Vintage RC Society event to get the $75/night rate. You MUST make your reservation not later than September 15 to get the special rate. The Inn is approximately 15 miles south of the field.

The Saturday evening banquet will be held at The Wellwood. They have a wide selection of items; the food and service is top rate. If you intend to attend the banquet, I must have your confirmation on the number of guests by September 24. The Wellwood is six miles from the hotel.

For more information, see the attached flyer.

This just a fly-in or are you running SAM events such as Brown Jr or Ignition LER? No mufflers on antique engines? What is the old timer electric event?

I know, question,questions. I'm attending but just wondering.

It's a fly in event, just fly what you bring. There will be a Concours event for SAM airplanes.

Well come on down and we can get you in some pictures.

I replaced the flyer with an information package containing directions, hotel and dinner information, etc. See my first post in the thread.

One week to go for Octoberfest. So far, the weather looks great, temperatures in the mid 70's and mild. Don't forget to bring your Kaos and Big John.

A well done to Mike and crew for a very nice event. We had absolutely fabulous autumn weather with blue bird skies,light winds and temperatures in the mid 70's. There were lots of very nicely done and well flown vintage and old timer aircraft with a number of Goldberg Falcons,DeBolt Live Wire Champs, Bridi Kaos,three or so Bill Northrup Big Johns and others. The site was nice on a knob above the Octorora Creek valley with a well manicured grass landing strip. If y'all didn't get to this one, you missed a good time. I didn't take any photos as there were cameras enough clicking all about and I'm sure some will get posted here.

Thanks again to Mike and the Cloud King R/C Club for a great day of flying

Special thanks to our AMA District III VP Bob Brown, AMA District II VP Gary Fitch and AMA District IV AVP John Kirchstein for attending the event. Next time guys, bring a plane!
