Event hours are 9 till until it gets too hot to have much fun... Even in the heat of August, we usually fly until at least 2-3PM or later. Lots of great shade in the park, right next to the water.

Entry Fee is $20.00 and it includes lunch for the pilot. There will be a raffle!

This event is open to all types of power, be it gas, glow or electric. There will be special awards for various type of seaplane models: Best Military Seaplane, Best Civilian Seaplane and Best Sport Seaplane Model. There will be the same awards for both electric andgas/glow models, so bring both if you have them!

We are also considering a Technical Achievment award for innovative work in seaplane design, contruction or operation. This award will be open to all types of power.

Retrieval boats will be available for those occasional unlucky models that need a retrieve.

Will post links to some of the past events to show some of the great seaplane action that we have at this event. The Camp Joy seaplane site is superb!

Please, put this on your calender for August 3, 2013! Email me with any questions at tomblakeney28682@yahoo.com.
