Man, I've been busting my buns to get a few new models ready for this year's event. It would definitely be disappointing to miss it but everyone's safety is a priority. My wife is at elevated risk and I can't afford to bring the virus home to her. My decisions will err on the cautious side until this thing passes.

Still hoping for the best!

I built these Willy Nillies models for SMALL fun. GLH 250 and Hummer 250. The Cub has a Pee Wee .020 engine with a backplate mount and remote tank.

SMALL Family,

I just received word from Sky Tigers President - John Gray: Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), SMALL is being postponed until the Fall SMALL timeframe. Proposed dates are Oct 15-17, 2020. Awaiting final confirmation of these new dates in the coming weeks. Stay safe and well!

Better safe than sorry I guess. We'll do it up right in October. Last one was one of the best in a long time!

I'm feeling greatful that the time I've spent building and working on my little model airplanes lately has helped me better cope with the situation that has been unfolding around us all. I have really realized how much SMALL has affected my life during this time. The actual event may occur during a single annual weekend but the building projects and interactions with friends I have made there continue all year long via the web forums and social media. SMALL has become a part of who I am and will be a legacy of sorts for many of you guys as well.

Everyone stay safe! Protect your loved ones! Keep your eyes skyward! This will pass!

Yes! And if we get Tony liberated from California, this could size up to be an Epic Event, even by S.M.A.L.L. standards!

Hey guys,

John Gray is proposing Fall SMALL dates be Oct 22-24. The original requested dates were Oct 15-17 but another local club is holding an event that weekend and Sky Tigers would rather not conflict . Please reply with your choice of dates.

Oct 15-17 works better for me, but will try to adjust my schedule, if the later dates are selected.

Oct 22-24 is better for me as it avoids a conflict with a new Jet fly in event at my home field.

But, I will be there either way.

The event calendar around here is always more crowded in Oct when our weather is ideal.
