Sweet! Hi Everyone, I will be helping to lead the event and will use this early post for details and such. Check for updates frequently. Again, we will have lots of prizes and all around an awesome time. I did just reserve the food vendor again. They had awesome food and are ready to be back at it again!!!

Pre-registration will be up soon. We will have a cool pre-registration prize (last year was a 71" slick). Early registration helps fund the event and equals more prizes and cool stuff. Please help support.

Yes, plan for squall olympics, actually, there will be prizes for squall flyers!!!!

Also, night flying will be back. Probably get 2 or more sets of huge lights to fly the 40%ers in the night! haha

Ok, more to come, check back often. Ideas send to me, Husker, or Dunk.

OUT

EDIT

Registration is ready now!!! Register early by June 1, 2012 for a discount and to be part of the early bird raffle for a 3D Hobby Shop 30cc plane!

Registration details can be found here - http://lincolnskyknights.com/huckfest.php

Registration form is here (also attached) - http://lincolnskyknights.org/LSKDOCs...ration2012.doc

Wonderful! Look forward to having you again! Thanks for the idea on the raffle too! I am working to put together another good raffle. Most proceeds went back into the event and to help with club improvements (last year we did some more concrete work, power extensions, etc)
