Birg Bird Fun Fly Report
We only had 18 registered pilots at the event, although we had a lot more spectators than most events I've seen our field host.  I would have liked to have questioned people to find out how they heard about it so I could make sure and do that again next time.  A handful of the pilots were from out of the area.  Spectators as usual were very impressed with the size and performance of the giant scale planes.  The raffle at the end of the day certainly worked out well for some people.  We did the usual one ticket per flight, and yours truly won two gift certificates, which made my $10 landing fee a worthwhile investment!!  The wind picked up pretty substantially by about noon, and by 1 p.m.  Overall a pretty successful event!
