I'm curious to see how many will fly on Jan 1st 2010. I know the Ajax RC Club will be having the Frozen Finger Fun Fly.

Re: Jan 1st Flying

That's one of the few things I miss since moving away from the city. The Bramalea Club has one every year as well, but I have not been able to generate any interest in that sort of thing here.

Oh well, I will always be able to slide down the hill to the lake tomorrow with a plane and get a couple of flights in, as long as the rain isn't too bad.

(To hell with it! Rain or no, I'm gonna get at least one flight in!)

Re: Jan 1st Flying

There are no clubs in my immediate area, but, just to cure me I might take my Parkzone Cub out in the still, frozen, snowy, brain-killing cold and maiden it. One flight only, and in the snowbank it goes before my fingers freeze.

I've spent most of my money and time on model airplanes, mean women, and beer. All the rest was just a waste.

Re: Jan 1st Flying

-23c this morning, but forcast is for -4c this afternoon (only in Calgary). I'm working today, but packed the plane in the car for after work if luck holds out. Superstition is that flying on NYD will bring good flying for the whole year, so I'm gonna try...

Happy New Year, and happy flying for those who dare the "Frozen Fingers Fly"

Re: Jan 1st Flying

Almost thawing here in the East Kootenays so we will be initiating 2010 with some flying this afternoon. Shook out the cobwebs from last nights festivities with a couple strong cups of coffee and am ready to go! Happy New Year all!

Re: Jan 1st Flying

I had planned on trudging through the snow to the pitts in Timmins this morning, but with a -32 windchill that is a little cold even for me!
Foamie flying tomorrow though!
