Default Flight sim?

I was wondering if anyone has a flight sim they can bring?
I think it would be a real hit if we can set one up for people to try.

Hey Wes, I checked the Wattflyer calendar, and noticed that you havn't posted the event. You should, a lot of people check the event calendar, that wouldn't normaly find this thread.
Just a thought.

Wes, I just posted it on the event calendar. I forgot about the calendar when we set all this up. I posted the start hours as 8:00am each day. I will get Don to post an announcement on the forum about the fly in if those hours are OK with you. He was just waiting for the times to be finalized to post the announcement.

Yes it is, I've been meaning to send an email to a friend of mine that runs the Christian radio station over in Stewart and see if I could get him to put in a few plugs on the station for this event.

Great!
It looks like the National Guard is going to be there. And they are trying to arrange to bring a Howitzer and a Hunvee.

Also Cermark is in as a donor!

After camping out at the Bald Eagle last weekend I am grounded this week, I wish I could make it. The good news, for me at least, is it sounds like all I need to do is provide plenty of streamer and I've got that covered.

James, do you think we could get Wes to put together the next WOOF event?
Full Size aircraft
Sponsered give away prizes (nice stuff, not props, and stickers)
Radio advertising
A real airport
Great publicity, and Forum marketing

Maybe we should move WOOF to Holdenville.
It is in the middle of Oklahoma.

Well having never run a combat meet I don't know what all you will need. But I can say this. When in doubt bring it! LOL

Shoot I have never put on any event before! So I am winging it! I really could not ask for it to be going much better then it is so far!

Ok I could ask but it is going pretty well!
