Flight Deck – The Eagle has Landed (Rescheduled) @ Guy (FRM) Field
Apr 21 @ 9:00 am – 1:30 pm

(Event Rescheduled from March 24 due to rain)

All Interested Flyers are Welcome in this Fly-a-Thon;

The goal of this project will involve interested pilots executing as many Landings, Runway Rolling, and Takeoffs (LRT’s) as they can up to a maximum of 40 per flight. Each pilot will seek donations from sponsors relative to each LRT they anticipate achieving or up to a $20 maximum donation per sponsor – essentially 40 LRT’s. (Note, there is no limit on the number of sponsors a flyer/pilot can bring in).

This event will partner any age of a new interested flyer with a more seasoned flyer. This partnership will serve several objectives; (1) introduce a non-flyer into the sciences used in model aviation and also serve as a spotter/counter for the pilot of the craft, (2) provide the pilot with a repetitive landing, rolling, and takeoff skill exercise and explain to the spotter how this is done, (3) forming a mentor-trainee partnership, and (4) create an event that engages everyone in the overall fun and challenges of model aviation as a learning tool. This is not a timed event as the objective is to have fun, practice, learn, and engage.

Proceeds will go toward the Advancement of Science through Model Aviation; by, reaching out to interested High School and Jr. High and Elementary students; as well as, Adults interested in Radio Control Aircraft.  A Pilot Raffle will be included along with a lunch for the Pilot and Student Spotter.

Weaselfest 2018 – April 28th-29th
Is it ever “too soon” to talk about the next Weaselfest? I think not!

This year’s event will be held Saturday & Sunday, April 28th – 29th, 2018 here in good old Santa Barbara, California.

I’m really pumped for this year’s Weaselfest, because we’re going to see the new Ahi joining the ranks. It’s going to be great!

Also, I wanted to mention that there are a couple new hotels in the Goleta area that have opened in the past year and are quite close to Ellwood. They look really nice, too!

Residence Inn by Marriot
http://www.marriott.com/hotels/trave…arbara-goleta/

Hilton Garden Inn
http://hiltongardeninn3.hilton.com/e…AGI/index.html

As always, despite the name, all types of gliders are welcome at Weaselfest

Here’s to another great year!
