Touch and go to spot landing. There will be two boxes taped on the runway, you must touch your landing gear (both wheels) in the first box popup off the runway and land in the second box on the same approach. (Landing gear must be in second box for points) 10 points for touching your landing gear in the first box and 15 points for landing in the second box. 10 Bonus points will be awarded if you complete a Roll in-between and land in the second box.

Flower Drop. You will attach a Dixie cup to your aircraft. In the cup we will place a small baggie of flower you must then fly over a card board box and drop it in. You will be given three attempts. 10 points awarded for each successful drop that land’s inside the box. Get all three in the box and get an extra 20 points. We are going to increase the size of the box this time.

Balloon popping. In this event your nerves will be tested. We will be suspending several balloons in the air west of the runway at 10 to 30 feet from the ground. (With crate paper to keep you from crashing) You will be given 90 seconds to take off and pop as many balloons as you can. 10 points for each balloon popped. If you pop 4 or more 10 extra points.

Limbo. This one is simple, fly under the ribbon to make it to the next round. You will be given two attempts and each level. 10 points will be awarded to you each time you complete a round. 10 bonus points if you complete the height inverted for a total of 20 possible per round.

Wow, this one sounds fun. This is my first year flying and I just attended a fun fly here in Reno and it was a great time. If I can get my son's birthday figured out I may make this one (his b-day is the 16th). Maybe I can talk him into this being part of his fun birthday stuff.

None of mine land of tarmac, they can with a bit of road rash (no landing gear). I dont mind dumping them on a paved runway but is there a grassy area for us belly landers?



P.S. I only have two: Easy Star trainer and a hot rod, brushless flying wing.
