Triple Tree Aero Modelers would like to invite all RC pilots to come out Saturday January 12, 2013 to fly electric aircraft. Join us for the coldest flying day of the year and bring any type of electric aircraft. Registration is $5. AMA required. No impound, just show up and fly. 72 MHz ok. With all the new RC stuff you got for Christmas bring something old to sell. Please, no camping, this is a one day event 8:30 to 6:30.
Lunch will be at 1:00 in the hanger (gas heat) rain or shine and include Frosty Dogs, Kirby Fries, Bake Beans, and Little Debbie’s. Adults $7, 12 and under $3.
Last year we had 71 registered pilots, served 120 people lunch and what a great time we had. Both the Main Flight line and the 3D Flight line are open for this event. So come out and join in the fun.

Accu weather forecast today for Saturday is partly sunny and 73 degrees. Might be the best flying day of the year. And it is the middle of January.

Frosty Dog 2013

This fun little event is representative of what Triple Tree is all about: a great place for aviation-minded folks to get together and have a ball sharing experiences.

Weather for this year’s Frosty Dog (named because it is held on what the almanac says is the coldest day of the year) was unseasonably warm – in fact, it was more the “Foggy Dog” until about 9am. An electric-only event, we ended up having pilots spread throughout the Triple Tree grounds – many were hanging out in the lower 3D area, some “mid-field, others at the float fly spot, with most at the main gazebo. All kinds of interesting things showed up – a quarter scale biplane, warbirds of all types and quite a variety of speedsters and helis.

Now in its third year, this event is really gathering some steam. Our buddy Tommy Fortsch sent us a note that said “I had a wonderful time Saturday. My friend – his first time at Triple Tree - thought the place was awesome and could not believe how nice everyone treated him”. Hurrah for everyone – Thanks for helping newcomers feel welcome. As always, hospitality reigns supreme at Triple Tree.

We had, 106 pilots enjoyed the day, with more than 150 taking part in the fixings for lunch.

Great job, everyone. Come join the fun next year.
