You can't beat that, it holds true to all aspects of life. I am glad you guys had a great time and if you learnt something- so much the better

Re: Conclusions from Carnage at Coronation

Here is another thing I learned:

All model airplane wrecks are 100% pilot error - if we had left them at home, this wouldn't have happened!

But - I can't live like that - can you?
Hang time does not apply to ceiling fans, light fixtures, overhead door tracks or basketball nets!

Re: Conclusions from Carnage at Coronation

This event was well attended with about 50 spectators & 15-20 RC pilots showing up early on Saturday! The pressure was on! Saturday presented some challenges for the pilots with 2 early crashes setting the tone. "dale hunter" damaging his Aeroworks 300 Extra & "dancrasho" experienced a total loss of his Reactor not much after that. In the end, 8 aircraft crashed on Saturday due to various issues.

Luckily for the flying club, we also had a large number of kids in attendance and we staged 2 candy drops! These went very well and were much appreciated by kids & parents alike.

The float fly went well with "russ" & "old prairie redneck" putting up their Sig Senioritta & Senior. It's rumoured that "19671990" also flew his Seawind (missed that somehow) for the float event. Another modeler brought along his newly minted paddle wheeler and airboat to join the fun. The float event was cut a bit short due to the fireworks crew needing space to get ready for the Centennial finally, 45 minute fireworks show & full scale aerobatic display.

Sunday arrived hot, sunny & calm. Some pilots left Saturday evening and new pilots arrived. We had at least 20 different pilots visit our funfly over the weekend. Happily Sunday was a much better flying day with no serious incidents other than bent landing gear on a hard landing.

Saturday potluck seen some chili, buns, cookies, pie & doughnuts for lunch. Sunday arrived with smoked roast beef, beans, more pie, more cookies & juice for lunch. Special thanks to everyone that brought something to throw in the pot.

Special thanks to all of the pilots & their ground crew for coming and making this such a wonderful event. We also thank you for spending time around the campfire sharing your stories and friendship! See you all here next year!
Fly it, like ya stole it!
