Ottawa Valley Giant Scale Event Aug 20/21

Wow yet another Mega sized Mega Wonderful event that was hosted by the Kingston Radio Control Club

Dave Penchuk and his team yet again put on super-sized amazing great weekend

I do believe Dave said this year reached 114 registered pilots - This year I think the main meal was BBQ Baby-back-ribs and Chicken - As always many won some amazing prizes from the many sponsors who support this long run mega-event

Although I only stayed for the Saturday its likely they got rained out on the Sunday-Today
it sure was one heck of rainy day in Ottawa

Never fear Larry was out on the line all day shooting the photo's you all want to see
Please wait he should have them out in a few days from now.

So I'll be the First! " Thanks Dave you've done it again "

As you said it was GREAT & so far I've picked out 220 + photos for the album & still have over 800 more to go through. Should be on line as 2 albums by Wed.

Yes Sunday was rain out.
But I arrived Wednesday at the Kingston Field
Thursday, Friday saw so much flying that it was almost as busy as Saturday.
I made the joke this is turning out to be a 3-4 day event.
Some people are starting to call this event the "Canadian Joe Nall".

For your information
This gorgeous Harvard with a radial engine, was build by a regular attendant of this fun fly Brian Fisher.

Brain sold this plane to Trevor Brum this spring.
Brian died 2 weeks before this event and never saw his Harvard fly.

Thank You Dave for honoring him by a moment of silence during the pilot meeting.
