Valley Gathering - It’s a wrap

Many thanks to all the folks who contributed to, and participated in, Valley Gathering 2011. We had 37 registered pilots flying and many more RCers looking on to see what all this indoor stuff is about. Our “mass launch” in the afternoon saw 22 aircraft up at the same time. While we didn’t reach the mark set by the folks in Moncton everyone had a lot of fun and we will definitely get there next year.

I want to give a big round of applause to our sponsors who really came through in support of local pilots; MAAC, Great Hobbies, RC Wings and Wheels, Maritime hobbies, Hobby Emporium, Tower Hobbies, and Great Planes. We really appreciate your investment!

These folks deserve special thanks for their commitment and follow-through;
Daniel Spencer – Promotions, Vendor relations
John Blanchard – Field Operations
Kevin Patterson – HMCS Bonaventure construction team
Jacques Verville – for this awesome website
Jim Taylor – For persevering with the sound system
Beany (Sabrina) for her enthusiasm and ticket sales skills
And especially
Christie (my Wife) for spending the entire day on registration and putting up with VG preparation for months in advance!

Also thanks to our great Speakers
Colin Bell – Helis for Dummies and an amazing flight Demo
Al and Jon Eastman – The basics of Electric Flight
Barry Lloyd and Duncan Burton & Vic! – Scratch building indoor models
