Our hot dog demo pilot my have to work and miss the event, and we have a Demo slot to fill.
It would be great to get Jamie Robertson since he lives just 2 hours from the event. but being one of the top pilots in the world, he's kinda hard to book.
Here is the info on the event.
Oklahoma Dust Bowl Fly In
For MS Research
Presented by HobbKing.com
Come Join us September 16th & 17th for the best R/C event in Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Dust Bowl is used as a fund raiser, to raise money for the MS society.
The ODB3 fun fly takes place at the airport in Holdenville Oklahoma. Holdenville is centrally located in Oklahoma, it's very convenient for pilots in Oklahoma, and the central US states. This year we will also have indoor flying after dark, at the local high school gym, and night flying. Because the event is located on a full size air field, our event is open to all forms of R/C, from electric park fliers, glow, gas, helicopters, to turbine jets.
Most of the time, it will be open flying. We will have demo's, by giant scale, jets, Helicopters, and some full contact combat rounds (so bring some foam planes to shred)
Saturday the 17th will be the main day for those pilots that can only come for the day, this is the day for all raffles, and the day food vendors will be on site. Night flying, and indoor, will be both Friday, and Saturday nights. Open flying Sunday morning for those that stay the night on Saturday.
This event doubled in size in the first two years, and with HobbyKing as the title sponsor, and over $5000 in raffle prize give aways, we could see over 100 pilots this year.
There is plenty of room for camping, but there are no hook ups for RV's. We will have food vendors on site, but fast food, and hotels are also close by.
The Cost of the event is only $10, and raffle tickets are $1. 100% of all money raised will be donated to the MS chapter of Oklahoma.
