    Snap-A-Saurus 3D Showdown

    July 28-31, 2011 Gardner Airport, Gardner, MA. Whoooooohoooooo

    This event will be AMA Sanctioned and we owe special thanks to our District I VP Andy Argenio. Maybe we will see some one-handed hovering from him, you never know!!

    Like no other events we know, this one will be out of this world. Lots of fun in the planning. Many of you may know that Elie Snap-A-Saurus plans an event every year, and it has been a tremendous amount of work for him. This year he was totally on the fence about taking it on again but two local clubs, his home field at SSRCC and Otis, have decided to lend a hand, lots of them actually, to make this happen.

    We all went out to a planning dinner and Elie was extremely relieved to know that he will have a team of dedicated guys to help him out. We are even making our own website for it (link to be posted on this forum soon).

    The first annual, and hopefully for many, many years to come Snap-A-Saurus 3D Showdown is on the way!! Hide the women and children, set your calendars, and come on down. Some of the best flyers around will attend to huck with Snap, including demos by our very own 2010 XFC Champ Johnny “Bravo” Glezellis. We hope to have a special Guest appearance by Dave "Planebender" Sullivan as well!! There will be lots of good food, drinks, and other merriment, but most important, lots of fantastic flying.

    More details will be coming your way but set your schedules and let’s get this thing rocking.

    Thank you Father Don for posting this, I want to thank the SSRCC and OTIS members who offered to help, now I have the time to pick better girls for the event, just kidding.
    I also want to add that that the AMA District 1 is also sponsoring the event, a big thank you to Andy Argenio district 1 VP who's been supporting this event since day One.
    This event will be like no other, in addition to Johny Bravo we will also have the 200+mph pylon racing planes which were a hit last year flown by Ralph Rinaldi (National champion) and Lloyd Burnham,also a top competitor in the US , we will have the usual pig roast, we will bring back the Snapasaurus contest we are also working on few more things that we will announce in due time.
    Andrew thanks for the support and glad to have you at this event, this will be number 4 for you.
    Fiddy, too bad you're not closer we would love to have you here.
    Mith (mode 1 ), you can fly my plane as For Rocky , I am sure we can arrange something for him.

    THanks Don & Elie!

    It's kinda funny.... We've allready got the time off for the Nall,
    and the Mistress was just talking Yesterday, or
    Saturday about the possibility of going to Gardner if the event was
    held again this year.... talk about perfect timing on the announcement... :thumbsup:

    Nelly is going to freak out when she gets home today......
    I can see it now! (she went up to the red cross blood drive
    on her day off from school)...

    hmmm... Greg, you better take care of that voice :crazy:
