MVF Annual Heritage Lake Float Fly Highlights (October 25th)

MVF Annual Heritage Lake Float Fly Highlights (October 25th)

Perfect weather, beautiful skies, mirror-like lake surface, great food and great comradery; this is the best way to describe this year MVF Annual Float Fly at Heritage Lake. Members of the Civil Air Patrol Squadron 59 from Hemet did a great job with the security detail, aircraft retrieval, set-up and tear-down; a very impressive group of well-mannered gentleman’s. We had a lot of action including a few dead in the water airplanes that were rescued via RC boat or by the Civil Air Patrol and a pedal paddle boat. The event CD, Ray Gould, did a great job with the pilots meeting, airplanes inspection, and his signature pull pork sandwiches. The raffle went well and the two most famous items were the Parkzone micro Icon A5 donated by Bob from Dynamics Hobbies and the ElectriFly Catalina PBY5. We also had other prizes donated by Hobby People. Galvin Logan delighted the public with his electric 3D Helicopter flying demonstration and capturing the action with his camera equipped multi-rotor and land RC vehicles. Many thanks to all the people that volunteered to make this event possible and a very special thanks to the Heritage Lake Community HOA and Management for letting us use this wonderful venue.

MVF Annual Heritage Lake Float Fly (October 25th, 2014)

It is official; we cleared all the hurdles to have our annual Heritage Lake Float Fly Event on October 25th from 8:00 AM to noon time. The Heritage Lake HOA gave us the go ahead and the AMA approved the event sanction. This event was originally scheduled for October 11 but, due to some last minute inconveniences it was changed to October 25th. Spread the word around especially to other club members and let's have a great event. See the attached PDF flyer. 

NOTE: Up-to-date AMA membership card is required and all models must have the owner AMA number and/or owner name and contact information. This is a requirement for AMA sanctioned events.

Poker Fun Fly Highlights and Pictures (September 13, 2014)

Poker Fun Fly Highlights and Pictures (September 13, 2014)

The Poker Fly event was a great success.The scorching three digit temperatures were not enough to discourage the brave ones that came to try their luck at our now famous event. We had a total of 23 courageous pilots and plenty of spectators to cheer on the pilot's skills. An abundant amount of food and cold drinks were served as well as many laughs shared among the people. Furthermore, a bittersweet moment arose in account of the club expressing their thanks and farewells to a favorite club member, Stephen Ferguson. The club presented a plaque in honor of his commitment to the club and service to our country. A scrapbook was also presented by Amelia Arroyo with many fun pictures and good wishes from club members. Kudos to Joe Schwaller and many other members, including our youth, for taking part in making this a successful event.

Fun Fly April 19, 2014

The fun fly was a great success with 11 pilots demonstrating their flying skills.  Greg Fashano won the spot landing and timed event.  Paul Skog won the nitro loop roll loop event edging Rafael by 1 second.  Rafael Osaba won the electric loop roll loop event.  Had to go to a playoff round with Ted Bills to win. Great competition.

    Tom Potter did an excellent job cooking up some delicious food.  The raffle was also a great success too.  Many items were donated by local shops.  A special thank you to Hobby People (Murrieta), Hobby Town U.S.A., and Dynamics Hobbies.  Our next event is Warbird over Menifee.
