Weaselfest 2018 - April 28th-29th


Is it ever "too soon" to talk about the next Weaselfest? I think not!

This year's event will be held Saturday & Sunday, April 28th - 29th, 2018 here in good old Santa Barbara, California.

I'm really pumped for this year's Weaselfest, because we're going to see the new Ahi joining the ranks. It's going to be great!

Also, I wanted to mention that there are a couple new hotels in the Goleta area that have opened in the past year and are quite close to Ellwood. They look really nice, too!

Residence Inn by Marriot

Hilton Garden Inn
http://hiltongardeninn3.hilton.com/e...AGI/index.html

As always, despite the name, all types of gliders are welcome at Weaselfest

Here's to another great year!
Steve

I'm actually planning to have lunch with Michael today. Should I ask him about timing for this? I know it's way ahead of our normal schedule, but hey.

Two years ago I attended my first Weaselfest w/out a glider

20 years have gone by since my last r/c glider flight (life keeps getting in the way). Now I’m retired and setting up a shop at the house, this year I’m going to bring a glider ... so ... bring a hard hat because I’m a bit rusty

Michael said he is happy with whatever you guys come up with in terms of timing. I'll defer to whoever usually makes the call, it all works for me, too.

@Joe: all gliders - Dream-Flight or otherwise - are welcome at Weaselfest. "Fling what ya bring" is the order of the day.

The last weekend in April is easy to remember. Sounds good to me. Damn those hotels are $300+ a night! I could sleep on Steve's couch and buy 3 Ahi kits!

You might try that but you'd better throw a bbq while you're at it.
