Does anyone know what the flight line is going to be like this year? I hated walking back and forth from the sport and 3D lines.

I wanna be an R/C pilot when I grow up!!!!

Yeah I know, Dan and I were camped out next to you. I hope the 3D line is show center this year. Speaking of the Hodge Hounds I had one too many quite a few nights. Too many flights that is!!

There was a lot of quirks to SEFF this year, from the flightline being reversed to the new lake to the off limits area... all to make the venue that much better for next year though!

I just cam back from down there and the Hodges Fall electric fly in. The field is looking awesome and the lake is full. It is going to be even better by spring!

It will be different for sure! I suspect it will be somewhat back to what it used to be. They have not officially announced a set up yet. It is being worked though. This year was a major anomaly with the new lake and field improvements that had been going on. All to make it just that much better!
