Re: Sky Harbour RC Airshow, Goderich, Ontario

I'm getting amped up for the weekend! A bit of a write up from Darryl C, club President.

Hello Pilots:
August 2015 was the fifth annual Sky Harbour R/C Air show and first ever Southwest zone Fun Fly. August 12 to 14 are the dates for the event this year!
So how is this any different than a regular fun fly? Why should you attend this year?
The event is hosted by the Sky Harbour Modelers in conjunction with their annual RC Air Show. We will fly in beautiful Goderich, Ontario, at the Sky Harbour Municipal Airport.
This three day event begins with a setup and test day on Friday; the two days following are the main event, with spectators attending on Saturday and Sunday.
Sky Harbour Municipal airport is a small town airport with light full scale traffic and this allows airport management to issue a NOTAM, in effect, closing the runway and taxi ways. Given these ideal conditions and a closed area, RC aircraft will be flying most of the day and even up until dusk.
Saturday morning the Re/Max hot air balloon airborne will offer tethered rides for a donation, meanwhile RC aircraft including jets, helicopters and prop aircraft will be taking to the air.
The club has partnered with the Goderich Lions club. The Lions takes care of parking and the proceeds of the event will benefit a local children’s camp named Camp Klahanie (a Lions Club project). The Lions also runs a refreshment and information tent where coffee, donuts, popcorn and water are traded for donations to the camp.
A noon time air show will take place Saturday and Sunday, spectators usually number 500. The show features aerobatic performances, helicopter demos, and several jet aircraft. New this year will be Barn Storming, yes the famous little red barn is there to challenge pilots. A prize of $200 is offered to the first pilot to make it through. The show will conclude with a popular candy drop for all the children in attendance.
The Sky Harbour Modelers will set up a booth not only to provide info on RC activities but in addition, to explain the importance of the M.A.A.C. to all those who fly or are considering flying model aircraft.
Everyone has an opportunity to attend a catered buffet dinner at a local, lake-facing restaurant. Live music and conversations will continue on the patio. Last year at the conclusion of the dinner, the following awards were handed out >
1. Best Prop – Bryan Mailloux flying his Extra 260
2. Best Jet – Paul Sousa flying his scale Vampire Jet
3. Pilot’s Choice – the Bean Field Control Line Flyers Club
A large number of pilot prizes were donated by many generous sponsors. Several pilots were generous enough to raffle off their prize, with the proceeds going to Camp Klahanie.
One of the highlights from Sunday was the presentation of a cheque from the M.A.A.C. and Sky Harbour Modelers, to the Goderich Lions Club. Over $2,000.00 was donated to help with the on-going renovations of Camp Klahanie, a local area youth camp. This is one of the main reasons to attend, helping out kids.
If you missed attending last year be sure to attend this year. It is one of the biggest, most heavily sponsored, most largely spectated events that you’re likely to enjoy! See you in the pits in Goderich!

Hi fellas

The barn opening is 2 x 2 ft and any aircraft allowed provided it approaches the barn at running speed (at discretion of the judges). I.e no stopping with a quad to get lined up.
