Have been informed that the Smith Lake Flyers club's facility in Mt. Pleasant NC is not open to visitors or spectators due to liability concerns of the land/lake owner. Too bad. They have a runway and lake at the same location.

expecting somewhere between 80 and 100 pilots from all over the nation, as well as many
spectators. Gasoline, glow fuel and electric powered aircraft are all welcome. (Mufflers

Twin Cities Radio Controllers would like to invite all who are interested to our Fall Float fly at Bush Lake Park in Bloomington, MN on September 19th at 11. All who have current AMA membership are invited to fly. All who are curious to watch are also invited. It looks like the weather will be beautiful and it has always been a great event, so bring a chair and come down for a fun time.
Regards,
Curtis

Great time at the TC R/C Float Fly was had by all. Many spectators and pilots attended and lots of planes in tow.

Only a handful of planes needed the rescue boat and there didn't appears to be much of any carnage so it was good all around. The weather cooperated although with me being too excited watching, flying only a bit and taking about 200 photos I forgot to put my hat on or put sunblock on so I make a decent cooked lobster imitation at the moment.

Stop on by and take a look at these photos I took, http://www.horizonrcflyers.com/forum...read.php?t=774 . Good job and congratulations to TC R/C for putting an yet another great Float-Fly event.
