... 5th Annual HeliFreak FunFly ...
Here we go again! We are VERY pleased to announce the Official 2013 HeliFreak Fun Fly!
Unfortunately we've outgrown the Southern California location so we're headed to Northern California as guests of the Northern California RC Unlimited Flyers. A BIG thanks to the Board and members of NCRCUF for inviting us - they have no idea what they're in for! [insert evil grin here]
Additional thanks to Tony Whiteside of Camp Hardcore and Greggor McGrath of A-Main Hobbies for the initial discussions of this year's event.
A very special thank you to Curtis Raimondi for stepping up to be this year's Contest Director. Curtis has a very large task cut out for him but seems to be up to the challenge.
As always, this event will be classic HeliFreak! No Commercial BS, no manufacturer demos - just pure flying, fun and friends!!
Pro Pilots confirmed so far: (If you are a Pro/Sponsored pilot and you want to attend, come on out!!! We love having you guys hang out and fly with us! )
Tony "Redneck Spotlight" Whiteside
If you would like to help out the event with a sponsorship donation, please contact Kevin (Skiddz) or Will (WillJames).
• Tent Campers welcome!
• RV's Welcome! (No hookups)
• Night Flying from dusk to midnight! (and perhaps beyond??)
• Food once again provided by Northern California RC Unlimited Flyers all day long.
Kevin "Skiddz" Spousta, Will James and Tony Whiteside will be the Helifreak "liasons" to NCRCUF. We're going to do things a little different this year with more impromptu clinics and a more personable approach to the entire event - sort of like bringing the Helifreak website "vibe" to real life.
We will be pushing online registration again this year. We're going to need to do a bit of work to get a registration page built and published and we anticipate that being available in the next 6 to 8 weeks. Again, online registration helps us confirm AMA status ahead of time and get everyone past the registration desk as quickly as possible. It also helps us plan for food/beverages and other "necessities". We have not yet determined pilot fees, but we're hoping to keep the pre-registration fee the same as last year.
We hope to see you all there. It's a great location and a great opportunity for us 'freaks to get together and have a GREAT TIME HF Style.
AMA Sanction Number: Pending
