Title: 2018-07 TEMAC Tickler, Jet Day
Post by: sihinch on May 14, 2018, 01:17:58 pm
It's one of my favourites! It's Jet Day!  ;D

Saturday 19th May at Rogofield.  We will have a BBQ at 12 noon, as always $5 for hot dogs, chips and drinks.  Jet flying will start at 1pm.

We have Vampires, Yaks, Hawks, Eagles......let's get together and fly like Jet Jocks!

Also on Saturday 19th May, Pinnacle Hobby (one of our biggest supporters - thank you!) is having a celebration for turning 25 years old!  Between 10am and 6pm, nearly everything in store is 25% off.  Let's see if anyone can buy a new jet in the morning, assemble it at lunch and fly at TEMAC Jet Day in the afternoon?  :o

Don't forget our other great local hobby stores, like John's Hobbies, Great Hobbies, A&J Hobbies and Rotor Geeks, all of whom support our club.

Cheers,
Simon

Just a heads up, folks, with the weather forecast for Saturday not looking that great, we may postpone Jets day to Sunday.

We will post and send an email on Friday morning, when the weather forecast should be more acccurate for Saturday.

..so you are going to crowd me out with leaf blowers tomorrow. :( 
It's the only day I can fly so now I have to work around you.  Will get there at 9:30 am, go fly regular planes until the lighting of the BBQ at noon, get out my $5.00 donation, then heckle the leaf blowers.  Sound like it will still be a productive day.

Have to maiden my brand spanking new Pogo for next week's EF-1 races in Orangeville.

Caffeine top-up at 9:15 am Tim's Woodbine.

Hope to see you tomorrow. ;D

Simon,

I know you champion inclusiveness in the club*.  It just feels good to vent once in a while.  You indicated earlier that others could fly but a focus on jets would be nice.  Heck, 10 minutes of flying will suck all batteries dry in a jet. ;D

Good call on cancelling today.

Frank

* heck, you let me join!!! ;D

re: "Convulsing with laughter!"

Jasper and Sophia were probably better behaved. ;D

Jasper and Sophia certainly provided a huge amount of entertainment and are clearly the stars of the next generation of TEMAC!  Jasper performed some incredible yoga positions, demonstrating flexibility that we can only dream of, and Sophia was thoroughly amused by stories about @Frank v B .  Sophia showed off some of her artistic sensibilities, no doubt a result of her genetic link to @Gregor77 !  Great kids!!  8)
