Looks like it's going to be low key this year...

Anyone interested in a little air combat with our battle planks?

The floodlights were cool!

Even I (at about a million years old) flew a little bit under the flood lights last year.

Shades of George Bellis Park in Buena Park, back in the mid-1970's to early 1980's.

I decided to bring my system anyway. If the other systems are good then we don't have to use them.

Mark's setup was even better than the venerable Whiteside rig. Sounds great. :-)

Too bad my Nitro is not running well. Would love to make a smoky mess.

I suck at internal combustion problem solving. :-)

Jon has the machine and will bring it back to me on Friday. I will set it up and see how it runs at least.

As of a couple hours ago, I have not heard back from A-Main in regards to any lights. Still working on that....
