Default Cool Fun fly event

Another cool event is the toilet paper drop.

In our club we rig up a roll of toilet paper in the bomb drop of my Kadet Senior. I get up real high and upwind of the field. Everyone else takes off and then I drop the TP. It unrolls as it falls and everyone else tries to cut the paper. It's a lot of fun, however it does create a situation for midair collisions. (we use our "crummiest" airplanes)

Even better!
I saw a combat event the other day and there was around 7 Mid-airs. That was the most exciting part.
