Please join us for our annual Fall event.
Laid back, no pressure, but very competitive, and lots of fun
We missed seeing y'all last Spring.
Lets show to the world that we can still have fun with our toy airplanes.

Looking forward to some F5J with you guys. I need to try and get up there some weekend before the contest and do a little flying. I'll keep an eye on the weather. Just got finished cleaning up from the hurricane that came through a few weeks ago.
