Well....I must say I couldn’t be happier that the event went off as well as it did, It was awesome!! Flying was off the hook with our local talent, Team bob00, Diego, (ponytail) Mike, Eugeny, Ayhab, Paul P,.... and I saw a lot more beginner and intermediate participation that I was hoping for as well.

Winston kept the fires burning and crowd enthused with his big turbines and smooth style to compliment. Zig and team Rotor RC showed up right at the end with a giant 1/5th scale electric Lama and put on a nice display. Nik from RC-TV was kind enough to do a couple spots of early footage on Sat that will hopefully generate even more awareness and interest into the sport. Thanks to all above for their participation.

Everyone seemed to have lots of fun, enjoyed the company, and hung in like troopers when the sky got a bit wet Sat afternoon. Like I said, all you guys are what makes this such a fantastic sport and our club what it is, totally making all the efforts to bring it all together worthwhile. We had 50 registered pilots and about 150 spectators. Big thanks to everyone that attended!

A very special thanks needs to go out to Mike Wilson and family, Dion & Beverly for hosting such a grand feast and opening their home to all of us for the after party, which BTW fed the entire crowd on Sunday with the leftovers from the BBQ.

What happened with the heli rides? Came by on Sunday morning and no R22 although the weather was great on Sunday. Some nice flying though. Not sure who it was but the the guy wearing a white shirt and checkered shorts ripped the air pretty good with that 700. Can I take some lessons?

Yes sorry about the full size heli rides, MAAC shut us down there, but I did battle it out with them till the bitter end and resorted to ensuring that the event was sanctioned and everybody had coverage as the priority.

I did get the ice cream truck to stop in though Next year should definitely be a go as WE will have time on OUR side to work though all the red tape.

Sorry to disappoint, I was more bummed than anyone, as I spent a lot of time and energy fighting for it and preparing, but we are better prepared to handle MAAC next time around.
