Nearly 1/2-A Fun Stunt Event

Sept. 26, 2009, Richmond, B.C.

These pictures are from the Vancouver Gas Model Club Nearly 1/2A Fun Stunt Event.

The event was held with nearly perfect weather conditions. This event is not a contest, rather it's a theme fun fly.

No models were re-kitted and everyone enjoyed this fun event.

Year # 5 for this event will be a bit earlier next year, date still to be determined, will advise. We are now starting to see some very good flying models in this event and I expect next year there will be one or two more. Everyone who entered receive a reward.
