I don't see any issues. I have keys to the gate so we can play as late as we want. Might have to use some shop lights or some headlamps but other than that we'd be set.

I'm in for either of the dates, I prefer the June date though. I like the entry fee idea. Dirt gets my vote too!

So long as it passes a vote at the next meeting. I plan to have a permanent dedicated area for dirt.


Seems like everyone is onboard. I'll probably aim for the June date and make sure that goes through with all the club guys.

I'm 2hs 45 away.(chicago).. If I have that Saturday off I will head down for a day or 2. I also vote for a June date as it will be warmer out. I also like the idea of having dirt. I prefer running the off road. If we have guys with machines we can built a road or just move piles. Something better than just driving in circles....

This is a thread to discuss the planning of an event. If you'd like to suggest or coordinate a location in Indy, we're all ears.

I guess to lessen the confusion, maybe the thread be changed to Possible Spring Show in Monticello, Il.

The reason I was asking is I might be able to make Indy, but Monticello .Ill is just that much farther, I have to think about that it is all most 1100KM. for me.

I'll start a new official thread when it's time for it but wanted to update you guys:

June 14-15 is the date we'll be aiming for. This will be formally finalized at our Club Meeting first week of March, but our President is onboard and really excited to see this meet happen. I will start all planning for hotel, dirt, roadway barriers, etc.

The radio seminar and battery/charger seminar will be held each day around noon. There will be no cleanup time needed on Sunday so anyone can leave as early as they need.

The idea I have for the entry fee is this: Maximum $20 for the whole weekend for a pit pass. (Spectators will not be charged) The more guys that show up, the smaller that entry fee will be. I think it's fair to waive this fee if your travel time to get to the event is more than 5 hours. This entry fee is put in place to compensate our facility for hosting this event. For instance power will be provided for the pit area. If we decide to have lunch prepared at the field I will pay for this out of my pocket since I'm the host and don't have to drive anywhere.

Arrangements can be made with me if you need to ship models and fly here. Best airport would be Bloomington IL. Champaign is closer but will usually cost a bit more.

I will be contacting our Vendors. I would love to see any/all of them attend and have parts to sell for no fee to them.

Any other ideas please post or send me a pm.

Thumbs up Re: Possible Spring Show in Monticello, Il

I live over 5 hours away in Syracuse New York but would have no problem paying $20.00 for me and my wife. I have to pay at Cabin Fever so why not you to. It cost money to put these things on and I for one appreciate the thought and work it takes to put one of these things on.

Trying to entice people in whatever way possible haha If you'd still like to pay, it will go straight to the club. We will use it to pay our costs of running the facility.

Depending on the turnout, it's possible that this event could be on par with some of the larger air events put on here. It's going to be a thrill to turn some of these air guys over to the dark side

While I am putting this event together I am also benefitting by getting a permanent "clubhouse" to play in my home town. I'm at the field every other day anyways for work or flying so it's gonna be awesome. I do hope that it gets more people involved in the hobby as well. I'm sure the guys closer would probably want to meet every few months.

I do plan to do this as an annual event. It looks like Travis has it covered but if Indy were to ever fall through I could host a Fall event here as well.
