Persistent? I am that, all right...

The field was for control line; I had about 20 teenagers in the group, and we were being moved from place to place, further still from our home turf. I wanted a PERMANENT flying site for this activity that would serve the whole community, and eventually figured out that the only groups that weren't being pushed around were the ones on municipal parks, ie, baseball, soccer, football, etc. So I pushe for and eventually got just that: a permanent, designated model airplane park.

The final showdown came when the Parks Superintendent called me in to tell me we couldn't fly where we were (for the 10th time), and I told him "Okay, it stops now. You find us a PERMANENT site, or else." He leaned back in his chair and said, "Or else what?" "Or else I organise a convoy from our hall, every flying night, and take ALL of these kids down to the local mall, drop 'em off, and we won't pick them up. We will do that every Friday until we get a site, permanent, designated, with flying circles, and on the park mowing schedule. I promise." No longer so smug, he replied, "You can't do that!!!" "Is it illegal? No. Will I do it? Count on it. I'm tired of this, and I will go out with a big bang, I tell you."

We had our choice of 5 sites within a week, and before we were to go flying again...

Sorry this story about the fuel blast (anyone remember Blast?) got hijacked to flying sites, but at least it wasn't my fault this time! However, there are some nuggets of information in my tale about getting and keeping flying sites here: not least of which is remembering that if you have a group of teens in your group, that the gummint officials listen way, way, better...

As I recall, BLAST was manufactured by Standback and Duck.
If it doesn't stink, it's not a diesel.
