I have a logistics issue with pickup and return of a couple travel trailers we're renting to house HF staff who are flying in for the event. You will need to provide proof of insurance covering the trailers while they are attached to your tow vehicle. (Anyone with USAA coverage is golden)

Thanks!
If i was closer id bring the F250. But seeing that im driving 6 hrs it would cost me twice as much.
Hope you get some help!

I think I've got it covered, but the more possibilities I've got, the better.

Just a reminder here. The cutoff for pre-registration is TODAY. As of about 6 minutes ago, we're looking at 84 pre-registered pilots; an increase of 34 from last year's final pre-reg total. It's likely we'll top 200 pilots this year!!

Also, as of last night, the total retail value of the raffle goodies is $13,528 and that does NOT include swag stuff like hats, shirts, shop towels, stickers etc.. Once again, a HUGE thanks to the sponsors that donated to the event. We couldn't do it without your support!!

I just registered! I'd realized I probably would be really mad if I didn't go.

Unless you specifically requested a shirt and paid the extra $12, no, it's not included with registration. i.e. if you paid $30, your shirt is covered, if you only paid 18, you'll need to buy a shirt on site. We've only had one other request for a 4X and I don't know how many were ordered.

I'll text the guy responsible and see how many 4Xs he ordered.
[edit] That was quick. He said he ordered 2, but I don't know if that was based on the pre-reg list or a "just in case" scenario.

That 2nd 4XL is yours. Just bring your $12 to the registration desk when you check in.

Oh, I missed this part as well. I think I only paid $18, but it asked what shirt size I wanted.

Can I still pay now to guarantee me a shirt, or will there be plenty to buy on site?

Also will there be other helifreak swag to buy there, ie stickers, hoodies, etc?

I was up there today as well.. Big white Ford truck, pretty hard to miss...

The "market" across the freeway is a gas-station convenience store.. They'll have a few things. We worked out a deal with them to bring in extra ice for us and someone will be making ice runs at least once a day. You will be able to get in on those runs if you need more ice to keep things cooled off.

As for shirts: The club is dealing with all the shirts. I believe they ordered about 220 or so, but I would suggest pickup up a shirt early on as we're expecting a lot of pilots. Looking at the pre-registration list, there are about 65-70 shirts spoken for so there's a good chance everyone will be able to get one.

Helifreak swag will be limited to whatever stickers and such Will is shipping out to me. (and I don't think it's much) We're still in the process of getting the Helifreak Swag operation back into operation since Dongle retired.

We've got a lot of swag from sponsors that will be given away during the event as well.

Please be aware the pre-registration link is now dead. If you haven't registered, you'll have to do so at the field. Onsite is $20 and shirts will be sold for $12.
