Tillamook’s 2013 NCRCM fun fly will be on Saturday August 31st which is on labor day weekend. It will be free with no special events, just normal everyday type flying. We will have a grill on hand with some free hot dogs and buns so you can make your own lunch, with some coffee and donuts in the morning. Everyone is welcome to participate, or just come and watch the airplanes fly. (more)
The Eugene Aeronauts RC club informed us that they are sponsoring several events this year. Their giant scale airshow event called Monster Fest 2013 was changed to Aug 17 & 18. It is particularly tempting because their RC manufacturer sponsor Aerobeez will be giving away a 30 cc ARF and a 50 cc ARF as flying raffle prizes. Their field is the photo field that is simulated in the Real Flight 6 sim, called HENSON FIELD, which looks very similar to Tillamook’s NCRCM field. They also will be hosting a May 27th Memorial Day Fun Fly, a June 29th Swap & Fly, and a Sept 2nd Labor Day Fun Fly.
There are two major Helicopter Fun Flys being held in this region. One is in Brooks OR (June 27th through July 1st) and another is in Snohomish WA (Aug 16, 17 & 18). These attract lots of high caliber 3-D and pilots and many high-end impressive helicopters. (mostly 3-D but some scale)
McMinnville’s Fun Fly will be on July 13 and it features a timed contest game for RC airplanes, a candy bomber run for the kids and a tail gate swap meet.
The Umpqua Valley Modelers of Roseburg/Sutherlin Oregon invited us to participate in their
30th Annual Plat “I” Float Fly June 14 – June16. The site is about 4 ½ miles east from the Sutherlin off I-5 exit 136 at the Plat I Reservoir.
OMAS will hold their RC Airshow Aug 10 & 11th. It features a fast paced variety of narrated RC demo flights with several intervals of open flying for AMA pilots. It will likely have RC scale tanks fighting on a miniature battlefield as well. They have a nice asphalt runway and a pond for float flights.
