MN WATTS Master

So whats the scoop on that? I thought it was a three or four day electric event.

I'll admit to letting a couple gassers fly at WATTS but that was Sunday afternoon when it was basically down to the club and a few locals.

I'm still looking forward to pictures!

Huge to thanks to Tony, Nathan, Chico and the entire RAMS crew for a really fun time Friday and Saturday. We had a blast. It was nice to hang with good friends in great weather for some casual (sometimes silly) flying and fellowship. THe corn was tall and the grass short making for a perfect flying environment. What a great low pressure event for FLG Svetlana to make her debut. She had fun and was amazed to see our flying toys in action. Thanks Larry for letting us share the tent space..can't wait to see your pics as you always get some great ones. Special thanks Diggs and Miss Jamie for saving us a spot at the "cool" end of the field. You two are on the very top of my proud-to-claim-as-a-friend list. The steaks Friday night were awesome! So good in fact that Svetlana actually ate her plate (and almost the table) carving away to get to the very last bite. Thanks Tony for taking such good care of us. We felt very welcome at this event and that makes our job a lot easier. If you can call what we do work. ;-).

All the films are edited and the first dozen are now posted on FlightPass:

I'll be posting the rest of the films soon and hopefully photos later tonight as well. Thanks again all. This is the most fun I've had with RC in a good while. ;-)

Just got home a bit ago from cleaning up. Thanks to the members who cared enough to stick around and help. Thanks Fred and your always awesome FLG's. Your attendance is always welcome. Great to see you again. Thanks for your coverage of this event that we try to make a great pleasure for all who attend.Fred, Diggs, Jamie, Moose, Larry, Kevin, Scott, Tom, Andrew, Tony, man I can't name all and can not tell you all how much Nathan and I really appreciate you all. Knowing and being with you has helped us try and set this event to please you and make your trip worthwhile.As the subject of the gassers, well it is already being talked about between Nathan and myself. Some of you travel along way and we really appreciate you coming. This subject will be talked about in the near future and will try to arrange a different plan for next year. Sorry for the inconvenience that this may have caused anyone, but the feedback helps to arrange for the next year event. We have always opened the field up at some part of the day on every event, but it looks like we need to talk a little more for events of this nature. Again, I am sorry for the problems it may have caused anyone and we will be working on this due to the posts on this site and all who have questioned this this weekend.
Also thanks for all the complements on the dinners. It is something I really enjoy doing for all of you all. Hope everyone had a great time. Hope all had a safe trip and really looking forward to seeing you all soon. Until then, take care and love you all.
