Cloudbusters Indoor Fling – CANCELLED

The Cloudbusters Indoor Fling, scheduled for 03 May 2020 has been CANCELLED.

We are looking at a possible rescheduling for late October or early November, but this is entirely dependent on facility availability.  Without the rescheduling, we will defer to the 2021 Indoor Fling.

 

Texas Scale Champs Date and Location Change

Duke Horn and Rich Adams have rescheduled the Texas Scale champs from April to the 13th & 14th of June – AND – they changed the location to Hamilton Municipal Airport (TX).  This will now be in conjunction with the Texas Cloud Climbers FF contest.   The FAC Calendar has been updated.

NOTE:  ALL Contest Directors should contact me for updates on your specific contests.  Please let me know if they have had their dates changed – or if they have been canceled all together.  I will update the FAC Contest Calendar

Another Legend – Bill Warner – passes

Frank Scott reports that Free Flight Legend, Bill Warner, went into hospice last week and passed away last evening (12 March 2020).  Frank also says “Jeanie wants us to keep encouraging kids!

Personally, I give Bill a large amount of credit for helping me (indirectly) get into and learn Free Flight.  I was picking up Model Builder magazines about the same time he was writing his “Hey Kid…” articles.  They helped me tremendously.  I didn’t know him personally, but we had a very brief email correspondence a few years ago and I found him to be a very kind and generous person – you could just tell in how he was writing and what he said.

He was a member of the NFFS and FAC Halls of Fame.  You can read his AMA biography here:  https://www.modelaircraft.org/sites/default/files/files/WarnerBill.pdf
