Thanks Gene for posting the pictures. Of course I left my camera at home!!![:@]

Really had fun today with everyone. Weather was great, some great flying. Thanks to Duane Wilson for bringing out his prototype Ed Kazmirski's Simla. What a beautiful graceful flying model!!

We had a ball. I flew everything I brought out!! There were many flights made including the controline guys. I will have one of those next year!!!

Of course several beautiful models of all sorts and modeling years. Thanks to Clyde and Marshall for their modern single channel system built into a Mule transmitter that had a Kraft 4 channel radio for back up. Boy did it have some range!!

Thanks to Mike and Mabel Langlois for supplying lunch and allowing us to use this great flying facility!!

And a very special thanks to everone who came out and had fun!!!

Can't wait until next year!!!!!

Bob Harris

Hated to miss this one but things happen. Looks like you guys got some great use of the OJA field today.
I gotta admit it makes me warm inside to see Clyde and Marshall getting a plaque. Those guys are pretty awesome.

Gene, Thanks for posting all the pictures.

Is there a club at this field or do they just hold events there? I live 10 minutes from the Julian airport and did not know this event was going on.

Todd, Unfortunately this happens all too often. That is; an event in your own back yard that you find out about after the fact! The good news is that you can visit the Old Julian Airport model airplane field now that
you know it is there, but first visit their web site: www.oldjulianairport.org Good luck, Greg

Todd, to the best of my knowledge, there isnt any club at the field, just a bunch of guys that get together every now & then that enjoy all forms of modeling....Gene

Bob - thanks for putting this event together, John and I had a great time and plan to be there next year. I'll see if I can round up some more old timers from the Southern Pines area, we have a group that is into vintage models.

Thanks Gene for posting all those pictures. Thanks Bob for putting on this event. A special thanks to the owners Mike and Mabel Langlois for allowing us to fly at their site. We did have a great time and it was really cool meeting many of you guys that chat here on line. I'm looking foward to next year as well and will hopefully have more stuff to fly.
