I've always wanted to visit Joe Nall. That is the show or shows :) Our show gets a lot of non RC spectators. Last year we broke the 1000 visitor mark. Our club does alot of local community events especially with Children. Most of our clubs sponsors are local businesses. Our event is also a fund raiser for two local boy scout troups. One troup cooks and and sells our food, the other troup parks cars.
Our club flies off of an old 2900 foot crop duster runway. We share the runway with an ultralight club and get a few planes landing. The air national guard like to use it ever few months for training too. Our club is the official care taker of the property and has the best relationship with the land owner. He always tells others to contact our club to get permission to use the land.
This year having the Confederate Air Forse landing two WW2 Warbirds is a first for us. They are flying in from a pancake breakfast elsewhere in the state that morning. We have a hand held radio for pilots to call our airboss so we can clear the airspace of all models before they come in.
Weather is the key. We have been blessed in the past. I can only remember it raining once, and that was late in the day.
Nice to meet a fellow modeler on the Klipsh forum. I am going to Muncie for XFC next weekend. Are you going too?
I feel that all Congressmen and Senators should be required to wear uniforms informing us who there corporate sponsors are..... Sort of like a NASCAR jumpsuit.
