Georgia-Hodges Hobbies All Electric Fly-In V2 Sept 29th 2007


It's almost time for the second annual Hodges Hobbies All Electric Fly-in, which will be held on September 29th 2006. The "official" AMA sanctioned day is the 29th, Saturday, but everyone is invited for electric only flying for fun on friday the 28th and sunday the 30th also. $10 landing fee for saturday ONLY, friday and sunday are free open flying. And make no mistake, the aim of this event is FUN and flying. Only basic flying field safety rules will apply, and AMA membership is required. Concessions will be on-site on Saturday only- Hamburgers and Hot Dogs for lunch, $5 a meal, and Barbecue for dinner @ $6.00 for a full meal. Saturday we will also have some of the best pilots in the world for noon time demos, including Mac Hodge's famous 20 foot wingspan B-29. Heli pilots- WAIT till you see the demo lineup we have for you!! There will be several factory sponsored pilots on hand for the demos and to help you set up your heli. There will also be specials in the hobby shop throughout the weekend related to electric flight.

We do expect and have talked to several vendors that have expressed an interest in attending. If you are a vendor and would like to attend to sell or demo, please call me at the number below.

Event coordinator- Bill Davenport
CD- Mac Hodges

Judging from the response we've had, it should be pretty good. I just got word that Fireman Bill can't make it- dissapointing for sure but now someone else will have a chance in the raffles!!!

If my travel sched is correct, I won't make it either. I hate it when things slide to the right.
