2010 Huckfest Tour Starts NOW!

Warning: The following text is to be read while imagining that it is being read aloud by the "Tractor and Truck Pull announcer guy" Failure to do so may result in an excitement level that is not deemed proper.

Ahhheemmm.. ok here we go...

THIS THURSDAY THRU SUNDAY IN HOT SPRINGS ARKANSAS.....
COME ONE, COME ALL TO THE BIGGEST EVENT SINCE THE LAUNCH OF NASCAR!
THE FIRST EVER FLYINGGIANTS.COM, IN ASSOCIATION WITH 3DHOBBYSHOP.COM,
MEGA... MEGA... Mega.... Mega.... Mega....
HUCKFEST... HUCKFEST... Huckfest... Huckfest... Huckfest...
THAT'S RIGHT, SEE PILOTS OF ALL SKILL LEVELS THROWING THEIR PLANES AROUND THE SKYS IN A MANNER THAT CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS STUPENDOUS, OR SOME MIGHT EVEN SAY DEATH DEFYING!
IF YOU ARE NOT A SISSY GIRLEY MAN, YOU WILL BE THERE! SO WE WILL SEE YOU THERE ON THURSDAY... THURSDAY... Thursday... Thursday... Thursday...

RECAP and all info you may need:


First Stop: Hot Springs Arkansas!! JUNE 25th - 27th!!

Located smack dab in the center of the good ole US of A, Hot Springs will be host to the first ever MEGA HUCKFEST! And it will be off the HOOK!

SO.. Get your vacation time set, load up the trailer and lets get ready to HUCK!!!

Fellow FG Staff member and good buddy Josh "FighFighterFSFD" Price has been the point man on this event and he has done an outstanding job. And what he has cooked up is some serious good times!

The location:
The field is in Hot Springs Ar. ( http://www.hotspringsrc.com/ ) and the field is just 4 miles to the north of down town Hot Springs. This place is AWESOME!!! Hot Springs is a major tourist attraction for the state of Arkansas and has lots of things to do. But with the main attraction here being the Huckfest let’s talk about the event. First off is the field. The runway is around 650 feet total (350 black top and 150 of grass on each end) with the center section asphalted. The runway sites on a hill with a slope in front of you that allows you to do knife edge passes below the runway... Way cool…
Some of you remember this location as the place where the EAA club had a couple events. It’s the same place. Only difference is the club has new officers (all of which are excited about this and can’t wait to have it), the runway has been recovered and is nice and smooth asphalt, the park around it has been built up so it is even bigger, and the club has grown. I am sure not long after this post people will agree this place ROCKS!!! It is closer to Little Rock as well which is the closest major airport. Camping is completely welcome.


Directions to Flying Site: From Hot Springs, Hwy7/Central Ave., turn West onto Whittington Ave., (at water fountain) and then make an immediate right onto Cedar. This road will become Cedar Glade, then drive until you come to Wildcat Rd. Turn right and follow road until you see the Hot Springs R/C Flying Club sign.


Some pics of the site and a short video of a past EAC event:

Now.. on to the fun stuff...

At this Huckfest we will be introducing "Hover Bowling!!"
We will have bowling pins set up and if someone chooses to try to Rudder Bowl as some point through out the day, that person will get two minutes to knock the bowling pins over with their rudder! If they happen to knock over all ten pins in one minute , they will win one extra ticket towards the big raffle prize!!


The Raffle!

We will have some really cool raffle prizes, but Josh wanted the Megafest to have a really special prize, so he made some calls to all our good buddies and once again 3DHS, FOX MOTORS, FUTABA, HITEC, SWB, FROMECO, AERO GRAPHIX all stepped up and put together one HECK of a main prize package!!!

Every single registered pilot will get one ticket for this prize. And more will be available for $5. You must be present to purchase tickets, and you must be present to win the prize!!

What is it you ask?!?!

It's a 100% RTF 3D Hobby Shop 103" Extra 330 SC!!!!

This prize will consist of:
1 Brand new assembled 3DHobbyshop 103" Extra 330 SC
A Futaba 10C 10 channel 2.4 radio!
Installed in this plane will be: DLE 111 from Fox Motors!
Fuel tank hardware from Fox motors!
The new Bad ass uber cool servos from Hitech
SWB aluminum servo arms from SWB!
A full Fromeco power system and switches!
A tricked out FG graphics from Aero graphix

HOLY COW!!! If you win the plane, you WILL be able to fly it right there on the spot!!

SO get ready for one heck of a weekend!
