This is our sixth annual "Toys for Tots" benefit event, it is wonderful to benefit the kids at Christmas time in Christmas FL!

Instead of the usual entry fee, please bring a new unwraped toy about $12 value, one for each day, plus $3 to cover the FSS fees.
This is a mixed launch event, electric motor launched (altitude limiter set to 150 meters) and winch launched sailplanes.
Pilots meeting at 9:45 Saturday, and 8:45 Sunday

Majority of the debris has been removed, what is left over is being cleaned up, we got to fly there yesterday for the first time since hurricane Irma.

Wow, mentioned right off the bat in 0:50! Also cool that they called out the King Orange.

Raed you should take some video and send it in!

I might have to pull out my video cameras and make a new FSS contest video. Hopefully this time my timelapse camera and tripod won't get run over by a run away truck...
