Default 1st Annual Speed Freak "MINE IS FASTER THEN YOURS" Run What You Brung, BBQ, get together?

Is anyone interested in organizing a Revver's Brotherhood Get together so that we all can meet, greet, fly, lie, and eat!

I am asking my Brotherhood if this is something we would like to do?

Feel free to "unload" your thought's here![sm=thumbup.gif][sm=thumbdown.gif]

PS: You must be a registered member to attend![8D] ( no fakies will be allowed!)

Well we were going to have the El Mirage FunFly & Campout #3 at the end of sept. first of Oct ? This has been a yearly thing for a few of the Revver Brothers, that myself and wife have put on. With the help and company of Razor and his wonderful wife. In fact we had guys from all over showing up to this historic event. The San Fran Bay area, Fresno, Lone Pine, San Diego, Los Angeles area and many more places. Even had a full scale cessna land on the dry lake bed.....taxi up and tie off to the travel trailers.....pull a HotSpot jet from the back seat.........need I say anymore. We cooked 4 flats of eggs and 5 lbs of bacon and sausage each.....not to mention the homemade biscuits and gravy. The dinner ticket was Ribs and corn on the cob, homemade potato salad. For the grown ups we had plenty of beverages...... and jello shooters, margaritas, and Cuervo 1800 shooters by the camp fire, in the evenings. This is an event open to young and old for the whole family. Camping....Flying.......meet and greet, is whats it all about. I am open to some feedback, and glad that this thread finally got started once again as I have had many e mails as to when this non sanctioned event will take place This is one party you dont want to miss. Thanks T.J. The other Tim

If I had my choice I think I would head to Oz[8D]. It sounds like a hoot. The 1/2a RCU guys do this over here in Right Coast land a few times a year. If I am still working for the same guy this fall it looks like I will be heading back to SJ again. This time I am going to try to arrange an extra day or two so I can ride down and at least do some bench flying with some of you guys.

Anyone notice this invitation is addressed to those of us with prop jets and coming from a guy with a turbine? It's rigged I tell you! Rigged!

Speed Junkie how does Tim's offer sound for late Sept. early Oct.? Tim is the founding father with the help of Dave, Gary and other folks that fly there regularly...

Tim is a heckuva host and his wife cooks restaurant quality meals from there trailer-

I've been giving some thought to trying to organize a speed plane fly-in (or I had more specifically in mind a prop-jet fly-in) maybe next year.

Not sure if I can host at my current field - that is the biggest limitation. Nice field, grass - lots of room. But I'm looking around.

This recent 'enforcement' of the no-models at the airports thing sorta doesnt help

Anyone interested in perhaps heading to Ohio if I can get something like this set up ?

Bob

Heck Bob, I'll brave the border and drive to Ohio if you put on a shindig there, count me in! Where are you thinking? Toledo e.g. is about 5-1/2 hours from where I'm at (just north of Toronto).

Oh yes, I have to join the brotherhood don't I? I keep forgetting to take pics of my airplanes for the official application! Note to self..

Mike D.

p.s. how about pulsejets?

Probably would be closer to Cleveland here - if so the trip is quicker across Niagra area.

Lets see what we can put together. No promises - yet....

Sounds good. If it happens, it happens. If not, then it... doesn't.

I won't have anything fancy, so far my fleet is a stock Magnum R/.50v1 and a Whiplash on the Jett .50. They'll have to do.

Cool- wrong coast folks getting involved...

Not sure how Bob27 will fare without me there to help him tune his engines but I am sure y'all will have fun anyway---

Mr Matt- You have probably flown at the basin or rabbit right? I think El Mirage is close or at least similar to that (?) No real frequency control my main concern- Those of us who fly close by do the Channel thing, the lake-bed is huge though...

Whaddya got to fly?

REV BRO #2 I don't own a turbine![sm=thumbup.gif]
Don't even want one!

Where is the challenge with a turbine?
Push one button and everything starts etc... etc...[sm=eek.gif]

For me it will always be "ALCHOHOL,NITRO,PISTONS AND PLUGS FOR LIFE!"[sm=thumbup.gif]

You know, after giving this careful thought, turbines are pigs on takeoff. I bet "Razor/we" could take you on a one lap race from take off.[X(] "yeehaa, jesters dead!"

Or as the Pittsburghers say "Dahn Tahn n'at"......Keep the list posted. I have two more pattern meets this year and both are in September. Once those are done I can look at my speed planes again.

Maybe it would be best to split the "MINE'S FASTER THEN YOUR'S" up into two different "meet and greet's" on the same weekend and then we could lie to each other on the internet about how "GREAT" our's was and how "FAST" our planes went. (wish you were here!)

(people don't lie on the internet do they?)[sm=eek.gif]

Money will Probably keep the Brotherhood from ever being able to assemble as one at $5.00 a gallon![sm=thumbdown.gif]

Prepare for the worst and hope fore the best![sm=thumbup.gif] and grin and bear it!

Rev on My Brothers!

I have never flown at El Mirage, I know some people that love it some hate it. I have flown at Rabbit. I should have a diversity radio going by then that offers some protection

I have a new plane almost done, BVM super bandit with a big blower in it, should be good for 200 mph!
