Default **Internet Fly-In Sept 14th + 15th**

OK guys, WreckRman2 and I are planning a fly-in for the weekend of Sept 14th and 15th at S.I.R.S club in Bloomington, Illinois.

Nothing fancy, Not a contest. No Cd's. Just a bunch of us from the forums getting together for a big BS session and maybe a little flying.

We have set up a discount rate at a hotel here in town. We are looking at maybe some raffle prizes and definately a cookout Saturday evening.

If interested send me an e-mail I can get you more details. We should have a website up soon with a map and more info soon.

We will provide more information about the Fly-In as we get it. I have put together a webpage and will post all the event information on it as the details are worked out.

Here is the page:

I should be able to make it up to SIRS and maybe a couple other guys from Jacksonville. Keep me informed here or by email!
Only thing that might keep me away will be kids sporting events??

Default Internet Fly in Sept 14 + 15

Wayne,

Sounds very cool, count me in, now if we can just get that lone power line marked so there are no repeats of the "High Tension" event it'll be even better.

Let's see if the new CAP will 3D at this one!

I'll pass the word around up in this neck of the woods if you'd like.

Back to the building board...!

Mr. High Tension

Default AMA? IMAA?

People are asking if it is AMA required, (which I have said "probably") and or IMAA required. Not everyone here in Jacksonville are IMAA, if AMA only might interest some more from here. Either way I should be there at least one of the days if not both!
Might even have my PITTS done by then, and maybe not!?

Default AMA

I would say AMA required, but not IMAA. Sound's like a non sanctioned event just for fun. Great idea and I will pencil it in.

Hotel Rooms

I have 12 double rooms blocked under my name at the Signature Inn on Bloomington, IL for Saturday, Sept. 14th. The rate is $30 for the night and if you find someone to share the room... well you can do the math.

Anyway! I MUST know who is going to need a room that night and if your sharing a room I need to know both names for each room. If we need more than 12 rooms I need to know this in advance so please let me know.

I can be reached at 317-573-2486 or toll free at 877-347-1270. You can also reach me via email at webmaster@********.net


Signature Inn Bloomington/Normal
Veterans Parkway & College Ave
101 S. Veterans Parkway

Default Internet Fly in Sept. 14, 15th

Hey Wayne,

So what's the pilot count at this point? Have you mentioned anything to the Team JR crew down in Champaign? I wonder if McConville is in town that weekend?

On a non related note guess who just got 3 Matchboxes for his new Cap 232?? These are FUN!

See ya!

Heres a harrier pic of it from the other day.
