I have received word from Rich Baker of RC Informer that his current plans are to attend WattFest 2014 and he may even bring along his videographer to get some footage.

Rich was a hit at last years event and not only gave some thrilling flight demo’s but also answered all inquiries by spectators and fellow flyers.

His website and YouTube videos are very popular with the Triple Creek members.

You can check out RC Informer on these links:

And of course on Facebook as well: RC Informer

Default Counting Down to WattFest 2014

The days are rapidly counting down to WattFest 2014…

If you are even just considering attending this year, stop by RCFlightdeck.com and preregister. It costs nothing to preregister (pay at the event) but it will save 25% off your landing fee.

This years event promises to be bigger and better than ever — plan to come out and enjoy the weekend flying at what we feel is central Florida’s finest flying location, -- Triple Creek RC!

Hello Mark... Welcome to the West Coast!

When you get settled in, stop by Triple Creek RC and say hello. Bring an airplane with you and you can get a feel for the field. Let me know when you are coming and I will do my best to be there to show you around.

If you would, please go to RC FlightDeck and preregister... you get a 25% discount on the landing fee for WattFest 2014 and you do not have to pay until the day of the event. What a deal!

I hope to see you soon... and thank you for your interest in WattFest 2014!

Default The clock is ticking....

The clock is ticking....

We are down to the final days before WattFest 2014 to be held on October 11 & 12..

Pilots, don’t forget you must preregister on RCFlightdeck.com to qualify for the 25% discount on your landing fee. Preregistration ends at 6:00 PM on October 10th. No payment is made until you check-in at the event, so it costs nothing to preregister and you lose nothing if you have to cancel at the last minute.

In addition to a great lunch, there will be breakfast and coffee available at the concession stand.

Electric RC Pilots… you do not want to miss this one!

Got stuff to sell? Bring it along and do some horse trading!

I want to thank Greg , Steve and the entire Tripplecreek crew for another well organized event. The facility was in immaculate shape, the food was awesome especially the sausage sandwich, hats off to the kitchen!

With a great turnout of about 70 pilots from what I gather, this event keeps getting better every year, and a lot of great prizes were given out
The flight crew did a great job keeping everyone safe and keeping flights moving quickly with 8 pilot stations.

Folks mark this one on you're calendar as a must attend event.

Happy flying!
Luis

Default Thanks to all from Triple Creek RC

Whew... finally winding down from the weekend. On behalf of myself and Triple Creek RC, I want to extend a sincere "Thank You" to all who came out and participated in the event. We had 60 pilots registered with the majority pre-registered thru RCFlightDeck.com

The weekend weather was absolutely beautiful - no rain, the breeze was not a factor (it was mostly right down the runway )

My only regret is that I did not get a chance to personally greet each and everyone of you there. You were responsible for making this an enjoyable, fun time with a very minimum of conflicts. Everyone seemed to enjoy flying and watching others fly what they brought.

Thanks also to our sponsors, FMS/Diamond Hobby, HobbyTown of Tampa and Brandon FL, RC Informer, RC Hobby Apparel, Castle Creations, Bob Smith Industries, APlus Air Conditioning of Ruskin, KB Trucking, and Pinch-A-Penny of Riverview. I also thank the members who pitched in and donated prizes and their time and labor to make the event a success.

For those who were unable to make it back on Sunday the prizes awarded were:

CD's Choice: Rich Baker and his F/A 18 vectored thrust EDF
Pilot's Choice: Bob Marasco and his B-25, aka the Candy Bomber
Top Gun: Brian Gafford -- for flying a wide variety of aircraft throughout the weekend. It seemed Brian always had something in the air.

The above prizes were accompanied by a discount coupon from Castle Creations for 50% off an order from their online store. Thank You Castle Creations!

We also had a "Bent Prop" Award -- we had a number persons in the running for this one but we decided to award this to Justin Cook for a mishap with one of his heli's. It is so seldom we have seen Justin get into trouble we felt we had to give him the award. As it turns out the problem was the result of a wire that pulled out of a connector.

If you have never seen Justin Cook fly, you owe it to yourself to attend whatever event he is going to -- just to watch him. He is amazing!

Thanks to Bill Hunt, Regina Dexter, Keith Hall, Randy King and Rich Baker who took pictures and/or shot videos of the event. Some are here, some are on You Tube or Facebook. We will try to gather as many as we can for the club photo page.

Thanks again to all who attended.

Time to start planning for 2015!!
