So, what does everyone do at local club events that you enjoy? I am rather new to the RC world and I'm finally adventuring out from my local school (where I fly my smaller planes) and my local club (where I fly my larger planes.) I have participated at my own club's open events, but all we do is invite people from other clubs to fly. We do fire up the grills and offer food, sit around and talk RC, but that’s about it.
I’d like to spice up our club’s open events so I’d like to know what you do or have seen at local club events that you find interesting. I plan on going to a couple of local all electric events near me and seeing what they do. I thought I’d document the event with a few pictures, descriptions and some impressions of what I found interesting. I think if more people do this, then we can all benefit from some cool things that others are doing.
Mostly it's like you said, food and fun and pretty much open flying and fun. I think for some heli events we did actually pay some pilots to come and perform. Our club also usually rounds up some goodies from our generous LHS's and other sponsors and have pilot raffles.
