The Golden Triangle SPA contest is getting closer. THIS WILL BE A ONE DAY EVENT.

There will be B-Novice, Novice, Sportsman, Advanced and Expert Classes flown.

Trophies will be awarded through 3rd place in each Class. Free lunch, and drinks for all the pilots and workers. And lots of Raffles.

If you have never flown on a pattern contest before, come on out and fly what you bring in B-Novice. You'll have a great time and it will be an experience that you will never forget.

Two weeks until the 2nd Annual Aerobatic Convention in Grand Prairie, Texas. Lots of prizes have been donated by Manufacturers, Hobby shops, and distributors.

If you have any kind of plane, you can fly in B-Novice. It doesn't have to be an approved SPA pattern plane. So if you even think you would like to give it a try, come on out and join the fun.

Entry fee is only $20 and that includes free lunch and drinks.

The field will be open all day Friday for practice.

Oh man, been there and done that. It's too bad, but a job has a habit of getting in the way sometimes.

We are going to miss you.

Ugh, 1 week to go and I haven't been in the air in quite a while.

Maybe Friday will give some good practice.

Looking forward to it.

We just had our 2nd Annual Aerobatic Convention and even though the winds were blowing, we had a pretty good turn out. There were winds blowing 20 to 30 mph, but they were right down the run way. It seems that everyone had a very good time as we got in 5 flights during this one day event.

To view all the photographs taken by Ken Spears, who did an outstanding job of getting these shots, at:

http://www.gtrcc.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=16

The turn out among the members of the Golden Triangle RC Club, Grand Prairie, Texas, was fantastic. The pilots only had to concentrate on their flying and enjoy the event.

A very special thanks to the following Sponsors who donated some very nice prizes for the pilots and workers.

Tower Hobbies

Sig Manufacturing

Boca Bearing

Atlanta Hobbies

Lazer Works

Tru-Turn Mfg

Mikes Hobbies (Dallas, Texas)

Wild Bill's Hobby Shop (Irving, Texas)

BSI Adhesives (Bob Smith Industries)

M & M Trophies and Awards (Grand Prairie, Texas)







Hope to see all of you next year

I want to express my sincere thanks to all you guys that supported our 2nd Annual Aerobatic Convention. Your support was over whelming and greatly appreciated.

The final standings have been e-mailed to the SPA.

I would very much appreciate your feed back on how we can improve the event for next year. So please don't hold back and shoot me some of your ideas.

Frank
