n Blacksheep community project, our two miles of Hiway 36, mile marker 57 to 59.
1-Jan-2020, our first event of the New Year, and what a good one it was. The day started out in the lower 30's and by 1 pm, we experienced 44 degrees for a high. The winds were mostly light with moments of gusts, but certainly flyable. Today saw the largest New Years Day crowd I memory. Lots of flying, lots of food and lots of hangar flying. The field is a little mushy from rains over the weekend, but generally I good shape. We also welcomed several new members to our club. Congratulations if you got a flight in today, means it is going to be good year!

THANKS to all who helped make this event a success and to our guests who came to fly with us. We had 39 pilots register to fly and over 100 aircraft either flying or on dispaly. We had a large number of spectators all throughout the day and sold over 150 pulled pork and pulled chicken lunches. A lot of youngsters got a chance to fly a trainer as well as watch a large variety of r/c aircraft during noon airshow demos. Check back for an account of how much money we were able to raise for the HVAF.

Rege Hall & John Louden visited the Indianapolis RC Modelers All Electric Fly In. Descent turnout for 20 - 30 mph crosswinds. They were certainly good hosts.
Memorial Day photos of a very nice day at the field (courtesy of Ryan Jones).
The field is open, still a little wet, but looking much better. Several guys got in many flights on race day as depicted below. Also, we had a good turnout for hot dogs and hamburgers on Memorial Day.
please come back!
