Default Who is going to SEFF 2018?

I'll be there once again! looking to arrive Monday or Tuesday not exactly sure yet as it depends on my work. We have the annual spring Car show known as the Rod Run in town the weekend prior to SEFF so I can't come down early this year as we are very busy in the park that weekend

Will have my new Pete Goldsmith designed Foxbat 4 meter Glider ready for the LMR contest and looking forward to a great week of food, fun, and fellowship!

Hoping to be down by Thursday. Bringing a LMR entry for the first time, a Crash Hancock plane I picked up from his estate, and a few other planes. Looking forward to having a few beers with friends.

Take care and thanks for posting at WattFlyer!!

Cool Don, I missed out on any of Crash's stuff. I tried but kept getting beat out in the auctions. Hopefully there will be a few of his planes there and they can get flown together.

We did that at HHAEFI with Dave Burrow's planes. Mel had them all set up, we had about 20 of them all in the air at the same time with his favorite Buffet songs playing int he background. A wonderful tribute. Maybe we can do it again with Crash's stuff.

Hate to hear you're not making it Andrew! I've had a work commitment come up and may not be able to leave TN till Friday morning.

My new job (one year now) gave me a supervisor position. It is really hard to get away. I put in an average of 65-70 hours over a 6 day week. The pay is good. Vacation time is about average. Finding someone to cover my shift, not so easy.

I might try Joe NALL. next year. (Just to say I have been)

Getting close now. Wondering just how many are going to be there, not much chatter this year.

Default Can't wait to see everyone!

I'm a little later than usual getting signed up. But I just got my confirmation from Ernie S. so now I'm getting excited. Hopefully we'll have some great weather. Our weekends around here have been a complete washout. Looking forward to seeing a lot of friends, and maybe even making a few new ones! Mr. Bill you may need to bring a "buddy box cord" and teach me how to fly again! If my plans don't change, I hope to see everyone on Wednesday.
