This post is where the details of the event will be updated as we receive them. If you have a question, please check here first as you may find the answer you're looking for.

Where

Like last year, we're headed to Anderson, CA (Northern California) as guests of the Northern California Radio Control Unlimited Flyers at Ash Creek RC Park. The park is located near the intersection of Ash Creek Road and Coleman Fish Hatchery Road. See the Travel section below for directions.

Coleman Fish Hatchery Rd, Anderson, CA 96007
GPS Coordinates are 40.423863,-122.16957 and the will put you right in the parking lot.

Pilot Fees

**TENTATIVE** Pilot registration fees have been set at $35 for "pre-registration" and $40 on-site. We just couldn't keep the costs down to maintain last year's fees and had to bump it up. Still, a pretty good deal for a 4-day event. Shirt prices are going to be $20.


Food

The club will, once again, make food available all day long. Please make a donation each and every time you get something to eat. The club spends a LOT of money and time to feed us all, and nobody can say the food last year wasn't outstanding.

Raffle

We are slowly acquiring raffle prizes and are awaiting responses from many retailers/manufacturers, but the industry is down quite a bit and manufacturers may not have the deep pockets they did in previous years. We do have a few sponsors who have confirmed they are going to help out and some items have already arrived in Redding.

Please be aware that HeliFreak Staff, NCRCUF/Ash Creek Board Members are NOT eligible whether they're registered pilots or not. Any general member of either Helifreak.com or NCRCUF/Ash Creek *is* eligible *if* they are a registered pilot.


Travel -

If you'll be flying in, your best bet will be to fly into San Francisco International (KSFO) or Metropolitan Oakland International Airport (KOAK) and then fly into Redding Municipal Airport (KRDD) The Ash Creek RC Field is about 12 miles from the airport.

Alternately, you can fly into Sacramento and make the 150 mile drive to Anderson.

If you're driving:

From Interstate 5 North - Exit 667 toward Deschutes Road. Turn left at Factory Outlets Drive. Continue onto Deschutes Road. Turn right at Balls Ferry Road. Turn Left at Ash Creek Road/County Highway A17. The entrance to the field is on your right just before Ash Creek Road turns left.

From Interstate 5 South - Exit 664 towards Gas Point Road. Turn Right onto 4th Street. Turn left at Balls Ferry Road. Keep right to stay on Balls Ferry Road. Turn right at Ash Creek Road/County Highway A17. The entrance to the field is on your right just before Ash Creek Road turns left.

If you're between exits 664 and 667, you should know the area far better than we do and you're on your own.

HF user Himilou was kind enough to run up a map for us:

Lodging -

Tent and RV camping will be available on a first come, first served basis. There are no hookups or potable water on-site. There is a rest area with a dump station about 10 miles South of exit 667 on I5. Unknown if there is potable water available there or not.

If you won't be doing the RV thing, there are a number of hotels/motels in the area which are listed below. Distances from the field / Airport are estimated based on Google Maps and the airnav.com website:

BAYMONT INN & SUITES ANDERSON - 7.9 / 5.0
BEST WESTERN PLUS ANDERSON INN - 8.1 / 3.9
GAIA HOTEL & SPA SHASTA - 9.5 / 2.7

Be sure to mention Helifreak when you call.

Shipping Fuel/Tools/Helis

As of this posting, we have no facility for receiving fuel. We suggest shipping to the FedEx distribution center near the Redding airport. (See address below) **Make sure to select "Hold at FexEx facility" on your waybill**

I will check with Joel again to see if Gear/Helis can be sent to his shop:

J&H Diesel
Attn: [your name]
Helifreak Fun Fly
875 Twin View Blvd
Redding, CA 96003

or
[Your Name]
FedEx Shipping Center
6775 Woodrum Circle
Redding, CA 96002

*** MAKE SURE IF YOU'RE SENDING YOUR PACKAGES HERE, YOU CHECK "HOLD AT FEDEX LOCATION" ON THE WAYBILL!! ***

You will need to pick up your gear in person as we have no way to transport your shipment from the shop to the field.

Below is subject to change. This will be updated as soon as we know it's good info.
As far as we know, shipping back will be ok via J&H, but ***MAKE SURE*** you have pre-addressed shipping labels, tape etc to get your gear ready to go. You will need to get it to the shop on your own.

Remember, these folks are doing you a large favor; make it as easy and convenient as possible on them.

Are you guys going to host a MultiGP FPV race again? There is alot more presence this year, and with some notice we should be able to get a pretty good crowd of pilots together.

I just got off the phone with Curtis from Ash Creek about 15 minutes ago. The event is still on, but we need to gauge interest so we can plan for food.

I'm going to create a "Helifreak FF 2016 - Who's going?" sticky in Main as soon as I'm done with this post. Please copy and paste the list to your replies so we can keep a running total going.

Random Heli will kick in for the raffle. Too far to make the event but I really hope it's excellent. Kevin: where to ship the stuff for the raffle?

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.
