2017 BLF Spring Fun-Fly

Postby russT » Mon Dec 19, 2016 4:25 pm

The executive committee thought it would be good to spread the fun-flies out more, and also avoid parking problems on Father's Day. This event replaces the former Father's Day Fun-Fly.
2017 BURNABY LAKE FLYERS SPRING FUN-FLY:
Date: Sat., May 6/2017 (Sorry, this has been revised twice!)
Open to all MAAC and AMA insured pilots of all electric aircraft.
Admission: $5 includes 1 raffle ticket. (Additional raffle tickets available for purchase.)
Registration opens: 9:30am. (Overall field hours: 8am-6pm.)
Pilot briefing: 10:00am.
This year, rather than competitions, we’ll simply have open flying and an informal swap meet.
Raffle draw: Mid-afternoon.
Food: pizza, pop, water supplied free.

Please monitor this thread for further updates.

The executive recently decided to change the format of the Spring Fly-In only, to not have competitions. Instead, we will have open flying, and invite other local clubs to an on-the-field swap meet. The above description has been edited to describe this new format.

As edited two posting above, the event date had been updated a second time, to Saturday, May 6, 2017.
Sorry for the musical dates, but we had to deal with several issues (e.g. avoiding an RCMP motorcycle trials event that had been added for the parking lot on one of our previous dates).

Cheers, Russ T.

This event will have a swap meet, rather than flying contests, associated with it. This is informal.
Thus, please bring your own table, perhaps chair, or blanket, to put your good on.
Thanks, Russ.

Please, please when you are in any of the model stores in Vancouver, mention what club you belong to.

During our Spring Fly-In on May 6th, some wonderful airborne video footage was taken by member Ray Maxwell and his Inspire 2 quadcopter. Thanks to Ray for doing this, and for editing the videos!
Note these are viewable on YouTube in full 1080p HD (if you set the little gear icon in YouTube correctly, and then select full screen). If you have a very slow connection though, you might want to use 720p.

We could take some still photographs from these videos to use for our web site. If you have any moments you think should be frozen into a still photograph, just email me back which video (use the YouTube name) and exactly what time in the video.

I’ve also put my personal photographs and movies on the club president’s Google Drive.
Photos are here:
