Wow, can summer already be this far along? The weather here at Triple Tree is HOT and humid BUT cooler weather will follow and we’re expecting late September to be the perfect time to gather to celebrate the evolution/birth of this great new event. Also, we think it’s important to show that the rains of Joe Nall 2018 CANNOT spoil the incredible celebration that happens every time thousands of our friends gather and bring the world’s best RC aircraft. Nall in the Fall is the natural outgrowth of what used to be called eWeek which was an event dedicated just to our electric powered RC friends. It has been a great gathering and one that was well received but frankly, we kind of missed having ALL of our buddies here. Any party is better if it is BIGGER. So, for this year, we decided months ago, well before Joe Nall 2018, that Nall in the Fall was going to be all inclusive (fuel as well as electric) and that the meals, entertainment and the flying was going to be on par with Joe Nall. Best of all, the weather may just be cooler and the humidity lower as late September is about the time our weather begins to turn fall-like. As always, there’s going to be beautiful camping and the new lower bathhouse will offer the ladies true world-class facilities. We expect many, many vendors to attend and, as usual, they will be offering great prices and selection. We think this is going to be a great event and our volunteers are going to go all out to give you the very best Triple Tree has to offer. Preregistration is now open so go to registration-nall-in-the-fall.php and register now! While Joe Nall 2018 was the first time a cancellation has happened in 37 years, the unprecedented May rain ultimately made our beautiful Triple Tree grounds even more beautiful so, at least in that respect, it was positive. WE recognize though that the cancellation was a real negative and a disappointment to our Joe Nall 2018 guests and we want to take steps to prevent a repeat. So, the logical question becomes, given our recent experience, how will future rain events be handled? First, we will always do whatever it takes to ensure the safety of our guests but, in the future, we are going to take a different approach to a recurrence of the rare set of circumstances that occurred at Joe Nall 2018. In the future, we will advise our guests of the expected rain (if severe conditions are expected) and inform them of the anticipated impact considering forecast rain and and the drying conditions to follow. Triple Tree’s beauty is due, in a large part, to the natural, green, grassy landscape. It can and will get slippery when wet. An advisory from us could look like this: “As of 2:00 pm, on September 25, Triple Tree is expecting one (1) inch of rain in the next 24 hours followed by good drying conditions. Moving heavy vehicles during the rain event and within 12 hours following the storm may present some difficulties especially, in the lower areas near the river.”

A more severe event (longer/longer and harder rain) which could result in the river coming out of it’s banks could require that we advise our guests to move to higher ground (near the main line). Guests would be advised if this is the case by Triple Tree volunteers.

That’s it! We’re going to make every effort to ensure that YOUR event goes on even if things get wet. You, our guests are in a much better position to determine when and if you should leave based on your schedule, vehicle, etc. than we are. So, we’re going to keep you advised and allow you to decide unless absolute safety requires otherwise. Triple Tree appreciates the time, effort and money it takes for our guests to come to our events. In the future, we will make all efforts, consistent with safety, to make certain you are able to enjoy all Triple Tree offers for the entire scheduled length of the event. Fall in the Nall is going to be spectacular and we can’t wait to welcome you back to Triple Tree!

Never too old to learn
I've registered for Nall in the Fall. Yes, I was there for the evacuation and think the correct decision was made given the forecast at the time. Looking to have a great time in Sept.

KE Spins make me dizzy.
Been wanting to go to a Nall for years now. Maybe this is my chance.

Sounds great Jim! If I could get one wish for Triple Tree it would be make the road from main flight line to 3D line 2 1/2 lanes of asphalt. That would greatly reduce the dust generated and facilitate safer transport in the event of rain. Have fun!

When I had breakfast with Pat Hartness, he mentioned that they would love to update the roads but that the cost to do so is quite high. Perhaps, we as RC flyers, can help fund what we all want. As hard hit as Triple Tree was from cancelling Joe Nall, they need our support more than ever. I would be willing to donate to a road improvement fund for Triple Tree.

Just a few truckloads of crushed stone and have it rolled would help greatly

After driving 500+ miles and $$$$ spent, then told "Get Out!". And receiving nothing, no offer of credit, not even a fraction of a refund. I just can't justify going there again. Not everyone has a bottomless bank account. Some of us are on a fixed income and have to penny pinch to attend some of these events. Not what it's cracked up to be. Mostly showoffs.

Monk_56. I don't know your situation but when I left I stopped at the office and received over half of what I had paid and was refunded in cash.

What goes up, hopefully lands!

It was posted here among other places of their intent to cancel that while they hoped those in attendance could understand the financial impact that cancelling would have on them and would accept donations of entrance/ect. for those that could afford. And that they indeed would honor partial refunds and such, not sure if it was a case of not asking or being informed of this.

The camping area is great - they should open it more often. That might help bring in some more cash.

Here's hoping Hurricane Florence doesn't muddy up the event too bad. Prayers for all in harms way.

With a solid week in between landfall and the event, I think it'll be just fine.
