had a great day of flying. The turnout out was about a dozen in number.
We welcomed Frank and Mel from Eugene R/C Aeronauts to hit the skies
with us as their home field is being re-seeded. Weather and company was
perfect. With the season winding down, here is hoping for a few more
weekends before we tuck our models in for the winter. Hope everyone has
a great rest of the weekend and week.

Fest Float Fly
had a great time on Saturday Float Flying from a new space put together
by the Lowell Parks Dept. A huge thanks goes out to those folks for
supporting our club and this great hobby. The day started for me around
4 am so I could get to the site early for setup. It was light winds
most of the day with heat not showing until close to the end. Without
having the final numbers yet, we had about a dozen or so pilots and
maybe 20 plus or so guests and spectators. In my opinion this was our
best BB Fest to date. The new site proved to be great. It felt more
like a family event instead of being so spread out like we were before.
I heard nothing but positive feedback and what a great event it was.
had several pilots from up north Salem Albany area as well as some from
the Aeronauts. We had lots of flights put in with only a couple small
incidents. I had the record this day for retrieval trips out in the
boat. The shuttle service proved to be a big hit. Much thanks goes out
to Bill Schneider's son for doing all the driving. I would also like to
thank Allen Olsen for the use of his golf cart and trailer ,Rod Madison
for the use of his quad, Bill Schneider for the use of his nice flatbed
trailer to cart the big stuff and Gary Jenks for providing the airplane
I want to also thank Bill and Barbara Spencer for
manning the check in booth, What a great couple to have in this club.
Last but not least, Thanks to Shawn Madison and Vicky Schneider for
driving the parade route and tossing the planes to the kids. Once again
this club pulled together and put on a successful event. Thanks for
making my job easy.
Sincerely Your Prez................ John Risbrough
