Sad news for sure, but thank you all who worked to put on the shows, it was the highlight of my summer events. The drive was just right and 3 or 4 days of flying were great. I'll miss the margaritas and bsing with all the guys I met. My now wife will be disappointed, as she wanted to attend this years event. Good job to everyone who helped put the shows on, including the pilots who flew each year.

Sorry to hear that, Kevin. Thanks for the time, effort & sacrifices of the organizing team, which usually fall on a few individuals.

Glad I was able to spectate at the last one; though the weather & herding my non-modeling pals kinda curtailed my attention. Hope the weather did not have too large a negative impact financially?

Thanks again. Hope there will be a future resurrection of the event.

Sorry to see it go!


I Attended the last 4 years and enjoyed every minute of it! - Hope it continues as a regular Jet event! - More and More Jet events are rethinking it not excluding E-Jets anymore.

Fathers Day Weekend mid JUNE 2013 The Rideau Flyers - Ottawa Canada will continue to run its own E-Jet event - We are planing a 3 day event F/S/S we hope all our US E-Jet brothers will continue to visit us.

PS: Noticed a big jump in the viewing of E-Jets photos on my Fliker this morning
likely in lue of this news.

This event has been held steadily for the past couple of years. It's a turbine jet rally but each year the EDF crowd keeps growing up. Hosting site can't be better (actual airport tarmac) plenty of accommodations around the site and lots of friendly people enjoying their jets.

Wow, this leaves a huge hole in the RC schedule.

Thanks for the memories, this was my all time favorite event. But aside from that, I hope you guys eventually come through the other side after the loss of that field of dreams! I'm sure it's been a tough few years...

Flying for Fun
Kevin and all the hard working TORKS folks, great job on E-Jets, you can be proud of the event,it was 1st class all the way, and lots of fun, this strictly EDF event will be missed. Hope the group can continue with another great event to replace it cause it has always been a good time coming down to any TORKS event I've attended and look forward to the next visit to fly with you guys and gals.

Thanks to all the volunteers. My personal favorite event each year. Lots of effort. Thanks guys.

Deercreek park location would be great if the park would allow a few trees to be removed. Maybe in exchange for a few being planted elsewhere?
