Hey Bob! I’ve got 3 parking spots saved for you guys. Let me know if you’re going to need a 4th. Looking forward to flying with you guys!

No rental tents this year so bring your own if you want one!

Thanks!

We’ll be burning Jet-A together this time next week!

A huge THANKS to:
Boomerang RC who has generously agreed to sponsor our pilots dinner (or supper as we call it in SC!) on Saturday night. Get ready for some good eats!!

and

BVM Jets who has generously agreed to sponsor our BEST SCALE PERFORMANCE, BEST SPORT PERFORMANCE, and PILOT’S CHOICE awards. Get ready for something a little different for the awards this year!

and

JPO who has generously agreed to sponsor and provide the TOP GUN trophy. One deserving pilot will take this one home!
