Dave, I have posted our "18th Annual London Bridge Seaplane Classic" on the event calender, is there another location where I should post this information also? Information about this Southwest Premier Float Fly Event can be found on two web sites, www.savagewings.com and www.havasufloatfly.com This is an AMA sanctioned event.

Aparently there has been some confussion with a second unofficial website. I just got off the phone with the beachmaster and the float fly is good to go this weekend, no changes. Two contact numbers: Gary Bennett 928-453-1501, George Field 928-855-1197. The official net site is: http://www.deserthawksrc.com/ along with all the info as well as pictures of last years event and site pictures of the new site for this year. This site is fully accessable.

Folks a little after the fact but we recently did an indoor float fly for lightweight electrics. Quite a different venue to say the list but had a ball. No wind, no rain, no weather to worry about. Had a ball. Follow thread for details: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=312612 . Ed LMRA Aeromodelers

LMRA Aeromodelers Indoor Float Fly

Gentlemen just posted this to the events section of this Forum: http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_26...tm.htm#2641839 . We have been having a ball on simple foam floats indoors. If you are lucky enough to be coming our way (North of Ft Worth Texas) on the 21st of May please do. Bring a bird and lets fly. I will be posting the rules of engagement within the week and plan on having a good time if I can stay out of the drink. Hardware loss has been minimal once things are dried out but its well worth the risk. Come on out and have a good time. ed

There is a nice little one-day float fly on June 4th in Winchester, TN, near Tullahoma. Nice club, shade trees. I had a good time last year at their September float fly and am returning for the June one this year.
