Nice video - this is a great warmup event for the season.

All I need now is a plane ...

Sounds fun, but a long haul. Wished it was down by Charlotte, then I could make it a "company business" trip and that would work for sure.

There will be a porta potty on site and camping on the field is probably going to be allowed if more than one person wants to camp. Our land lord does not like only one person camping on the field. There is a campground within 10 miles of the field.

Larry Walls is our famous grill master and that means great meals for y'all pilots!

I am working on the registration page now. Please check again a little while and sign up for the event!

It looks like I will be competing with a Radian Pro again Ans I suspect several other will be too. So all new pilots - please do not be intimidated or afraid to show up with a sub-par model or anything. This is a fun-fly + contest, we are all just having fun there while also trying to be competitive a little

Let me know if you find a broken link there or something is out of order.

Great to see that we will have some campers!

We set this up as 2 day long contests - no camping or hotel required if you live close enough to drive a little and fly a lot.
