So...I've been on a mission to see if we can get a large turn out of 1/4-1/2A glow or diesel powered planes at SMALL this year.

The question: Who's bring .010 -.09 glow or diesel powered planes and the total number you'll plan to have at the gathering? Can we get a total of a least 25 - 30?

I plan to ship at least one .049 powered RC plane and two .049 control line planes. There's three!

I'll have at least 3 or 4 but that includes diesels. I have two PAW .03s and one .06 and it I don't crash it Before SMALL, I'll have a Tee Dee .049 plane and maybe some others. What % Nitro do you run in your 1/2A engines?

Excellent guys! Current total on RCU & RCG is 19 confirmed .010-.09 powered models. I may have to ship one more to make it an even 20.

George-I use 25% but once I'm at SMALL, I'll use Moonshine if it will keep my engines running. Thanks!

Hollis-Thanks!

Bassfisher from RCG reported FARM Club field is looking really good. He was there this past Saturday. All good!

Hi Kev.. Wanted to come over again this year but the Sun , Moon and the Stars don't have their co-ords lined up.
Tony A and his daughter Evelyn will be there carrying the West coast flag. I even picked up a Cox Heli during the year for the annual .020 Heli Duration Event.
With me not being there the beer won't get warm. Weather will be absolutely 100% model friendly, and no one will lose a bird over the in the sticker weeds.
Glad you are going to have your ( the Prototype) Selextra with you.. Have you flown it yet?
Would be cool to see Yours and Hollis do a Bipe fly by or dog fight....

Talked to Pat Tritle a while ago. He's concerned about the weather & intends to make a go/no go decision a few days before the event. We should encourage him ; )

Hollis, I'm bringing Skaliwags tent and chairs for Tony to use. I'll probably be there around noon on Wednesday. Kevin and I will have the TLAR banners.

It may be Thursday before I get there. I can't leave until after school on that Wednesday. So far no side effects from the treatment I had Monday.

Same here...it will be great to finally meet you and will definitely stop by and hang out. My daughter and I are scheduled to arrive around 2:20pm and hope to stop by the field around 4:00. Will anyone be set up that early?

k-Congrats on finding treasure! Cool treasure in that chest. I love when that happens...usually when I'm digging through boxes in the garage.

If you talk to Pat again, please let him know that we hope he comes to SMALL; my daughter and I would love to meet him. We've been fans of his amazing craftsmanship for quite some time. I was thinking SMALL started in 1988, same year I joined the Air Force, which would make this the 27th year. Crazy!

I have very fond memories of the early SMALL Steps. Too many great friends to list; met some of my best buds there.

The "Floppy Disk" is ready for the C/L circle. It's time for Hollis to have a go at it. : )
