The solution is simple.. Instead of schlepping shirts how about just selling the Iron On Silk Screen and the guys just go home and iron it on themselves...

That won't work as no one has the professional, precisely controlled, heat press. They'll just make a mess or the logo will come off on the first wash. They don't even know how long to keep the heat on it when applying

These are professional Haberdashery!

typically you can only get about 4-6 guys in the air at a time due to VTX frequency interference on adjacent channels, despite most Tx/Rx having 40 channels. We will need to do a little frequency control and maybe specify specific frequencies and a max VTX power.

I'll post that schedule as the first post in the the new thread, then update it via editing. That'll keep it at the front of the thread, so digging for the 'latest' edition won't be necessary.

As per last year, this is an unofficial schedule of every planned event at NEAT that people tell me about. I'm doing this to help NEAT-goers plan their time and to help folks planning events try to avoid conflicts. I have no authority to make or approve time slots, so if your event conflicts with someone else's, you'll need to work it out with them (Final approval authority rests with SEFLI, i.e., Tom or his assistants!).

Captain:

Posting a schedule of events. That is awesome! Effort well spent I would say.

Apparently I was not paying enough attention last year to notice you had a schedule. This year I will take special note and see if I can get to more events. If you can manage it try to find out if Arnie is planning fireworks. Two years ago I was too wiped out to go for my tripod. Last year I was on the far end of the field and would not have been enough time to get the tripod.

Ta Ta for now.

Strangrob, Capt Dunsel, unofficial 5 pm Lobster Combat each day except push to after Mass Warbird and Battle of Britain events.
Now "I survived Lobster Combat" shirts would be cool....

Aramsdell, I'll add it to the schedule (which will be up, shortly), but first you have to tell me where it'll be!

Paul, I suspect Arnie will have fireworks, again, this year. Because Josie is absolutely terrified of them, we'll be back at the trailer, trying to keep her calm (we may leave the campground for a while, too).

Schedule is posted. I'll replace the file as it gets updated, so no one will have to dig for the latest schedule.

When the NEAT Fair gets its own forum, I'll ask the schedule thread be moved to it.
