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.

Hi;Will plan on attending the float fly at Havasu but would be nice if the info was on a site not protected o could get to it as both those sites require a pasword to access??Maybe my lack of computer savy is showing?

RE: Float Flys and Events
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.
