Default 2011 Official HeliFreak SOCAL Funfly Event - Palomar Field OCT 7-9, 2011



I am VERY pleased to announce the Official 2011 Southern California HeliFreak Event at Palomar Field in Fallbrook, CA October 7-9, 2011. This is a 100% HeliFreak Event just like the last two SOCAL HF Events have been. No Commercial BS just pure flying, fun and friends!!

• Tent Camping is OK (And Fun)
• RV's are OK (And Fun)
• Night Flying is going to ROCK - Headlined by the BEAST, Tim Jones!! (And REALLY FUN)

Mitch "Lota Fun R" Adams is the local event coordinator for HF in CA and will be running the event in a Helifreak style, Kevin "Skiddz" Spousta is his right hand. The event will be co-organized by myself and MC'd by Bob "Finless" White. You can also take the chance to talk to "Finless" in person and ask for his advice. He always welcomes fellow hobbyists and is always interested in lending a hand to help.

I hope to see as many of you there as possible. It's a great place for us to get together and have a GREAT TIME HF Style. We will make the best of the great opportunity that the Palomar Club has graciously given us to hold an event at their facility!! See you guys there!!!

Thank me?? The only reason I got to post this was you were out riding your horses with your wife. Please.

Lota Fun R is who has been working for months to get a HF Event to happen in 2011. Kevin will be attending the Palomar club meetings on behalf of Mitch and HF to make sure everything is followed up on the best he can with the club so there are no surprises for anyone and we keep everybody on the same page. Thanks for all the time you put in Mitch and Kevin, we are going to have an event and I know you are looking forward to it as much as the rest of us.

You guys ready for some more fun HF style?

Because working with them proved too difficult to overcome.

I hope you can make it to Palomar, it is going to be a great event that if you miss it you'll wish you hadn't.
There will be quite a few pro pilots, BBQ, camping & good times will be had by all. This fun fly is for the people.

I can't wait, this is going to be awesome.

Sweet David. Can't wait to see you THROWING down in the night fly again. You go BIG and are not afraid to take a bag of parts home. Nothing not to love about your flying style and constitution.

Lets have a competition where people auto rotate into the canyon east of the runway and time how long it takes someone to find it.

This is going to be fun.. Ill bring the tent, the beer and maybe a helicopter.

You know what would be interesting....There is so much hang time on the 90's that I wonder if you could really go down into the canyon and then pull back up to land. Probably a bad idea.

Anyway....Got it on the calendar already.

Can't wait.

You crack me up Reggie. Hope to see you there.

**Edit - WOW the list of professional pilots attending is growing, that is AWESOME. You guys , even noobs come on and have a great time at the HF SOCAL Palomar event!!! If you have never seen the Pros thrashing their helis in person, it is definitely worth the trip to Fallbrook, CA.

I will keep updating the original post in this thread as we get more info. Please stay tuned.

Wow, this is great news. I think I've spoken to Will on the phone more over the past 2 days than I have all year to this point! I literally just got back from closing down our club's event (Rotors Over Miramar) and I'm already thinking forward to working with Mitch and Will on this one.

Avant even called me this morning to check if it was true and they're commited to bringing his guys over to lay down some smack.. Now we need to talk him into bringing some Avant girls!

Mitch and I had a lengthy discussion about how we'd like to see the event unfold and we'll keep working with Will and the kind folks at the Palomar club (Scott, I'll call you tomorrow evening!) to try and make this event as enjoyable as possible.

Don't miss it, it's gonna be a blast!!!!

Darren, you are showing up right?
Please add Darren Reed to the Pro pilots list. I will come just to see him fly


Tony is also flying in! Yea! Love him last year!!


Tony, what will you be "beating like a snake this year?" Last year your velocity was the one.
