finaly one that i dont have to drive 4 hours to get to

Eh, it's about 3.5 hours for me but closer than Huntsville was. Jax was a pretty quick drive though. I don't know why Tally hasn't ever had a big heli event. Our field has plenty of space for campers and such if properly groomed and we're in a pretty good spot for folks from all over the SE region to come down, or up, whatever the case may be. Maybe it's a county thing since we lease the land. Maybe one day...
I look forward to this one. Hopefully my Rexy will remain in one piece between now and then. :wink:

06-08-2007, 09:05 AM
I was told by the CD that the folks from Esprit Modles are coming down! SWEET!!
06-08-2007, 06:21 PM
What about Wings?
This time I will bring the blue cheese.
06-10-2007, 05:38 PM
Blue Cheese is for Wimps
06-10-2007, 06:06 PM
I would rather be a wimp with blue cheese than a tough guy with a burnt mouth.
06-10-2007, 08:38 PM
Just the right spice, not too hot, flavor enhancers not needed.
06-10-2007, 09:41 PM
Rodney makes some kick butt wings, and no true wing conasour would cover them up with blue cheese.
06-10-2007, 10:18 PM
OK cool, I will have more Blue Cheese for me!!!
06-11-2007, 10:50 AM
You guys are making me hungry now... good thing it's almost lunch time.
06-11-2007, 12:46 PM
Are you coming down from tallahassee? We need to get this as big as possible
06-15-2007, 01:41 PM
Definately! I'll be down there on Friday early afternoon. Hopefully I'll have my 600N by then. LHS says they're getting one in today. I will be going to investigate after work. My credit card isn't too happy about the idea but fortunately I can't hear the screams from inside my wallet. :wink:
Update: No kit at my LHS today. What a shock... Mabey next week or hell, mabe I'll wait until Clint's event like I was planning to in the first place. Sorry...just had to vent for a minute. :thumbdown:
06-15-2007, 03:29 PM
Anyone looking to split a room?
I'll be up on Friday thru Sunday.
06-21-2007, 08:46 PM
OK Freaks WINGS OR NO WINGS? The is the question of the day!
