Florida Panhandle Float Fliers 27th float fly held Saturday August 9th, 2008.

We had a fair to middling turnout for a monthly float fly, 6 airplanes. It wascool and nice up at the lake.

Mark Pfeiffer flew his pretty Sea Wind/OS .91FS. It looks great with the stars and stripes painted on. Plain white just isn't good for me to see.

Joe Shearer flew his trusty old 4-stroke powered Kadet Senior. It keep on flying and floating.

Jim Giffard has his Ultra Stick 40 now powered with an OS .55AX. Ran great.

Newcomer Don Warren flew his SkyRaider Mach I that Flaps put together many moons ago. OS .46 power.

Flaps and I brought 2 planes, the Sea Star (Twin Star on floats) and a new Neptune/OS .70FS. The test flight on the Neptune went well. The Sea Star does a lot better with the TT .42GP engines that replaced the GMS .32s.

Larks Float Fly October 11th, Lake Murray (Columbia SC)

This is becoming a don't miss event for float flyers throughout South Carolina and now neighboring states.

Lake Murray has over 500 miles of shoreline and we have a fantastic point to fly from (Rawls Point).

Lunch served, plenty of room for kids to play, absolutley beautiful views. If you don't fly bring a chair and enjoy the day!

Please visit www.larksrc.com "Events" for more information.

I didn't post an event notice, since I just found this thread, but we had the first Weaver Field Fun Float Fly last weekend. It was well organized by Cain Lopez at Scooteney Lake Park in eastern Washington. I would guess there were 25 pilots and just as many or more airplanes. I took some pictures on Saturday with my D200 Nikon, which were lost due to an accident of reformatting of the camera card. :-( However, I have some pics from a friends camera and some from my point and shoot. Hopefully, I can get others to post their pics too. And, yes we did boats too!

Noticed you posting a few years back and want to let you know that this year is the 23 Annual London Bridge Seaplane Classic and we are celebrating 20th Anniversary of the Schneider Cup Re-Enactment. This is still the fun fly, but a noon time tribute will have some of the original aircraft flying demos. The original Curtiss R3C-2 that was used to promote the Re-enactment has be located and returned the Lake Havasu. It is currently undergoing a transformation to electric power and will be at this years event. That is 42 lbs. on electric. Hope to see you here.

Float fly events to look for within 3 hours of Cleveland?

I know it still the dead of winter, but with my wife working as a nurse now, we have to plan thing well in advance.
Trying to get an Idea of which events to make

The Firelands in New London, Ohio August,,, But what are the dates?

I met a guy from the Akron area last, said his club put on a float fly too.. Can't remember the name of the club.

Any others?
