Default Thanks

First I want to apologize for not posting sooner. I am more then a little out of sorts still from the fly in. As I am sure everyone can understand it takes a lot out of all who work and help with the fly in.

I want to thank those same people. With out you it would not have happened!
There are too many for my feeble memory to recall. But just some of the invaluable help included (in not certain order) Brett ( Surfer_Dude), Larry ( warningshot) Tom (majortominski) David (rcphotog), Angi and Kayleigh and of course Don from Hobby King.

There are many many more that are important to the event whose names escape me at the moment.

I want to thank hobbyking.com for all their generous donations. And also all the other sponsors and donors. Some of them private individuals with nothing to gain but helping a good cause.

I want to also thank all who attended. The weather was not perfect. Far from it. But in spite of that we had a good turn out with 38 registered pilots. And the quality of the models and flying was outstanding!

I will post the final dollar figure later after I have been to the bank. But it is in excess of $6,000.00!

I talked to many of the people who attended and all had a great time. A good part of the Holdenvulle City government was there and they were thrilled with the event.

There is so much more that needs to be said. But I will end with this.
THANK YOU ! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! To all!

Ok drum roll please! I have in my possession a Cashiers check made out to the National MS Society in the amount of............................. $6,301.00! Not the $10k we were shooting for. But that folks is over 10 TIMES last year!
We are planning on doing the hand over of the check on the 29th since I have to be in town for a doctors visit.

Again thanks to all the people who attended,participated and staffed the event.
You all made the event a great success in spite of less then great weather!

I made my 2nd appearance at the local Lions Club today. I spoke about the fly in and how well it went.
Also talked with them about the lions Club getting involved as well as Wewoka.
A couple of the members ( one lady one man) flew the Vapor and had a blast.
I was approached after the meeting by several with interests. And it looks like I may well have groups at the Justice school and also in Wewoka learning to fly r/c with my help.
That can only be good for the hobby and the fly in!

Went well as you can tell.
Wes

Thanks goes out to all those who put this great even together! I had a blast even though my planes were too small for the wind conditions. I always love seeing the different aircraft people fly!

But anyways, the prizes (of which I won two) were awesome and the food was delish as well! I will be attending the next one for sure!

Default Check Hand Over.



Here is a picture of the check hand over for this year. Brandi from the MS Society accepting the check for $6,301.00.

They had me speak to a group of people with MS that were planning for an event.

We got a round of applause for our efforts this year.
