I'm impressed with all the RC activity back there in the south east.

This area has been in a funk the past few years with some fields closed down and a weakened local economy.

It'll be interesting to see if the power of advertising has a positive effect on Vic's speed rally.
Figure that the message got into 140,000 mail boxes just like that, it's got to stir up some interest

CP, I'm tryin everything I know to get the word out. Last year was kinda make or break for me personally and it was a resounding success from all who came and flew. Most of the guys asked if I could do it more than once a year but I thought keep em asking for more. This year I am following the AMA ideas for advertising an event. My district VP really did me right with the column in MA, in fact if you look back over the last year I've been either named or pictured in that column at least three times.
I'm trying to get something special done in time for this year's event.

Just bring it!!

What a great day it must be for everyone to see those 211 mph planes and also get a few cracks at a radar gun..!
No real stress, just your plane VS the gun. It gives you a chance to go out there a burn some fuel for a good charitable cause, too.

It's pretty basic but the guys doing it still get jitters and are really trying their best. Every year we see different things. Last year with the helis blowing by was neat. Who knows what will show up this year.

Give everyone a shot of the stuff you keep in that mason jar at the pilot's meeting....[8D]
I understand the jitters, but do your best at the pilot's meeting to loosen everyone up.

CP, If I gave out samples of that stuff we wouldn't get any flying done. Everyone would bust out into a community building session! Heck you might even build another Flying Sword of Death that stuff works so well.

Vic, this stuff will calm everyone down and it's loaded with B vitamins, too.
