Guys, this is must-attend event. Dino, Rex, and GMARC are top-notch hosts and do an excellent job catering to us pilots. This is one of the most pilot-oriented events you will ever attend. They have a great facility, great runways, and plenty airspace. Great people, great food, great flying.......what more could you ask for. Us Louisiana boys put it on our travel calendar every year. Be there!

Won't make it this year but hope for next year. My In-Laws moved from Colorado to Cumming which I think is about 20 minutes from the field.
I visited the field this past August, nice place!

We are getting some good pre-registration traffic. We will have great raffle prizes, awards and also give aways. Dino always gets some great Swag from Horizon, FTE, Dessert Aircraft and others.

Just two weeks out!!! Pre-registration is going good and strong. Some have asked if they can come for the week or come a few days early…SURE! We do have plenty of room for camping and RV's but no 220v hookups. We do have 110v power and running water on site.

Just about one week out now, and things are shaping up well for the event. Dino has managed to get some nice raffle items for his American Lung Assoc. fund raising efforts in the name of Dino DiGiorgio, Sr. I too will be raffling off a brand new DA-50 that was donated to me for another non-profit cause.

We have around 30 pilots now pre-registered through rcflightdeck.com, anticipating to have around 55 pilots this year…maybe a few more. The landing fee includes a nice pilots meal. Please register as soon as possible so we can get a good headcount to plan for this meal.

Thanks…and see you soon!

Although we are not publicizing the event for spectators because this is a "pilot event", we absolutely have no problem with spectators coming and watching.

Weather is looking great for Friday and Saturday. chance of rain on Thursday but ending early afternoon. Several guys are coming in on Wednesday afternoon. I will be at the field setting up specific areas for the SKS Video crew and for the food area too.

Still time to pre-register and come to a great event.

See you all soon!

Niiiiiicceeeee! Man, this event is really shaping up to be awesome. Just hear from (I think) our farthest traveler, Craig Haslebacher, all the way form Utah!!! He made it safe and sound after a four day drive here!

We have added a nice Steak Lunch for our Pilots on Saturday before the awards are handed out. If you haven't pre-registered, please do so asap…this will help us a ton. The link is posted all through this thread or go to www.rcflightdeck.com and our event should be the first one listed.

See you soon!
