2013 Totals


Hey Gang

finally got around to figuring out our totals for this year.

407 pliots (250 pre-reg out of 263) showed up.
27 vendors taking 56 booths
3 food vendors (includes Pete's delectable Pizza!)

Award winners:
Adam Woodworth best Military scale (Eurofighter)
Adam/Lee Woodworth best sport models (tie) (X-periment and pool toy)
Chris Parent best civilian scale (GeeBee X) (one of the racers in the demos)

Night fly contest winner
Adam Lilly

Tom,

The turnout was phenominal. Folks were pitting on the flightline all the way down to our big top. I've never seen so many vehicles, planes, and people as I did this year. Amazing! Thankfully Peaceful Valley has the room to handle all of it and have enough extra elbow room to have fun.

Thanks Tom!
After two years away from NEAT because of my European distraction it's great to be back in the family.

Looking forward to next year already.

Thanks!

Thank's Tom
Your team did an exceptional job this year. I can't believe how many pilots showed up on Sunday and Monday this year.

Actually I love it the way it is now. A few days of relaxed flying early in the week and then the hordes decend on Wednesday and Thursday.

One thing I noticed and I'm not sure if other vendors saw it but there seemed to be less foot traffic going by the booth. Those that did seemed to be in a buying mood so it wasn't a bad week but I definitely had time to sit and talk which hasn't always been the case in the past. And so I find it interesting that the pilot numbers held steady

and I did really good on thursday last year but didn't set up until friday this year due to the private pond I had. I do like the booth location I have as I get the to/from traffic to the parking

Do the math, 157 late arrivals dispute the damp weather is something to consider.

Just saying.
