Default Breaking News! 2013 WEST COAST HUCKFEST!!!

WEST COAST HUCKFEST - The return of the West Coast Funk!

Guys after many long conversations and a little prodding the guys from the Delta RC group have decided to go for another year! That's right another year of some good West Coast California Style Hucking! To step it up this year we have asked that our good buddy Dave Sullivan (aka PlaneBender) return to help make sure the insanity is at an all time high! l Dave is going to consult this year and make sure every single element of the fest is in place. And that means one thing for all of the Cali FG guys.... ONE HECK OF A GOOD TIME!

So, ladies and gentlemen mark your calendars, get the days off work, and get ready for the next installment of Cali craziness!

October 17th - 20th - DELTA RC Club - Lodi, California

HUGE paved runway.
Tons of room for camping. (No hookup's)

Location: 12145 N Devries Rd Kingdon Airpark, Lodi, CA 95242

I'm hearing the TAS (if it happens) will be that weekend. If it does, will you bounce between the 2 sleepy?

Default What!?! Bad dates....

Might reconsider the dates...these are the same days as the Best in the West Jet Rally in CA. I'd like to make the Huckfest, but have already committed to the jet rally. If TAS is on the same weekend that would be crazy...

Gotta do a better job checking for these large events in the future...they conflict. Wouldn't do it on the same weekend as the Castle IMAA event, right?

Great to see a NorCal Huckfest back in the lineup for 2013. I've had conflicts each year but hope to make it in 2013!

Believe me we did an outstanding job checking the dates. Every weekend from 2nd week of Sept-all of Oct their is something going on. A person needes to just decide what he or she wants to attend. Origionally we had the 11-13th weekend but lost it to the Texas Huckfest and FG does not like to doublebook the same weekend with only 3 states seperation. The first year I ran this event their were 2 other events going on the same weekend and with only 2 weeks to put the event together we had 85 pilots show up. Hopefully we will see 100 this year.
