Default 2013 Huckfest Tour Dates Announced.

Well guys, after weeks of work, the 2013 Flyinggiants.com / Aeroworks Huckfest Tour dates are in. This year for the first time in seven years, the Huckfest Tour is going International!

These dates represent 90% of the dates, I'm still finalizing two more, but I know you guys can't wait any longer! So without further ado...

The 2013 Flyinggiants.com / Aeroworks Huckfest Tour!

May 31th – June 2nd LaCygne RC Group of Kansas City hosts the KC Huckfest

June 20th - 23rd – Elk Point RC Flyers hosts the 1st ever Canadian Huckfest

June 27th - 30th – Twin City Eagles RC Club hosts the Iowa CornHuckFest

July 18th - 21st – NightHawks RC Club hosts the The 8th annual Ohio Huckfest

Aug 8th - 11th - Arvada Associated Modelers hosts the 1st Colorado Huckfest (Aeroworks' Home Show!)

Aug 29th – Sept 1st – The Sharks RC Club hosts the Shreveport, Louisiana Huckfest

Sept 5th - 8th – The Red Apple Flyers and PAU host the Wenachee Washington Huckfest

Sept 26th - 29th – Bryan Zang and the St. Louis boys host the Rolla, Missouri Huckfest

Oct 10th - 13th – The Austin RC Club hosts the Austin, Texas Huckfest


Aeroworks will have some cool announcements in regard to the Huckfest series coming up shortly and I will have the King 50 information up soon so watch for those.

I'd like to once again thank Aeroworks for stepping into the Title Sponsor role this year, it's been a pleasure working with them. I think they are going to add some awesome elements to the 2013 Huckfest Tour! People say you can tell a lot about a companies integrity by how long they have been in business. Aeroworks is a perfect example of this. Thanks again Rocco, Mark and everyone at Aeroworks!

Finally, I am currently trying to get two more shows scheduled, and I'm working as fast as I can to get these squared away. Time is just slipping by and I didn't want to delay announcing the shows that I know are rock solid. Also, if you are a member of a club that is in an area devoid of Huckfest action (ie. NE, West Coast, FL) hit me up, let's talk a little.

The individual shows' forums will be up shortly, these will have locations, club websites, and other individual show info. Please watch for that coming later today!

Get the planes ready boys, It's almost Huckfest Time!

I hope one of the two being finalized is in Lodi,CA

I went to my first huckfest there last year and had a blast. It's the only 3D event around.

I guess i could always make the trip to Washington

I hate how FOG rolls in and blankets fun.
It's a terrible thing.

Sleepy/Aeroworks/FlyingGiants...thank you for your efforts, sponsorship and enthusiasm.
without your efforts, and those of all the clubs and individual sponsors...these annual gatherings wouldn't happen!

Much appreciated all!

I really have to thank Sleepy for allowing us to host the first ever Canadian stop on the Tour! We will try to make this event a very memorable one! Stay tuned!
