I Just finished my Tri-copter. I will test fly it this week, if the winds die down a little. The Tulsa boys with Lucas', will have at least 5 multi rotor(Tri-copter, or quad-copter) flying by the Dust Bowl. One, or all of us will get some eye in the sky video.

I'm still not sure if I will make it the 14th, but I'm working on it. Anyone from Tulsa want to car pool, and split the gas?

I will start the next round of donation solicitations next week. My goal is 5K worth of donations.

Default T Shirts etc

Ok I have a couple of questions for everyone.
On the shirts we are looking at two styles. The baseball style with the short sleeves a different color then the main body of the shirt. Or a normal Tee shirt with all one color.

Now on hats we are looking at a visor type and a normal cap with bill.
Phil (kc135boomer) is working on art work.
We are also looking at Kozzies to fit soda cans.

So I need everyone to speak up! what are your thoughts and choices.
We will also be offering the chance to have your name on the shirts for a small charge.

Please remember this helps us raise money for MS!

What is the consensus on a pocket on the Tees?

Nah, a pocket on a T shirt? That's just plain silly.

Default Koozies

Rib town is not only going to be doing the BBQ this year. He is also sponsoring custom Koozies. They will be the fold up kind. Our fly in logo on one side. And his logo and information on the other.

I want to ask that anyone who is willing to help out onsite during the fly in and can make it on the 14th to please come. I would like to have a bit of a meeting. To go over what has been done and what needs to be done. As well as anything we would like to do during the event.
Who knows you might even get a peek at some of the prizes that are here.....

I am planning on being there early. Good flying then for one thing! And I want to be sure that I am there to great everyone as they arrive.
I should mention that I will likely be walking with a cane. I have been needing it more lately.
Don't want to catch anyone off guard.

Eagle tree is sending a gift certificate for the dust Bowl.

What do you think about puting the names of the donation sponsers on the backs of the shirts.

I had looked into that before. It drives the cost way up. And of course we won't know for sure some are going to donate till close to the event.
That is too late to add them to the shirts.
Speaking of the shirts. We could really use some cash donations. As it is I am going to be putting my rc stuff up for sale to try and cover the costs for them and the hats.

Eagle tree systems is sending us a gift certificate for the Dust Bowl. Not sure of the value.

What do you think about puting the name of the donating sponsers, and venders ect... on the backs of the shirts?

See you Saturday.

we had thought about doing that the first year. Because it is a good idea. But very quickly you eliminate the possiblity of any artwork on the back of the shirt. That is if you put the name of the sponsors big enough to do them any good.

With that said we CAN add one or two sponsors names to the shirts with out taking up too much room.
So if one or two wanted to cover the costs of the shirts we could add them with the words "Shirts Donated by ACME Model airplanes" as an example. And that would leave room for art work. After all we need to make sure people want to buy the shirts!
