Hey Guys,

Don't forget to mark your calendars for June 8, 9, 10. Had to take my wife to Mexico to get her to go but she is on for it now! You guys are in serious trouble now, the Desert Pink Sherman will be after your asses!  Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

I need 4 tickets!

Shall we look for a decent hotel? I'm not staying at that Res this year. That was painful for breakfast last year...

Just a little update guys,

The Residence will not be available it is fully booked. Probably because Aquino is a month later this year. so we have just reserved a room at La Quinta downtown which is the hotel we stayed at the first year! Booked online for $84 U.S. which was the cheapest we could find. Also for those interested Anita and I will be attending this charity event on Saturday night and will be appropriately attired for the period.  Very Happy

https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/parkwood-foundation/events/swing-under-the-stars-at-parkwood/#details

so if you are planning on coming and you are planning on staying a night or 2 you should hurry and book a room relatively close by as this show is getting bigger and bigger every year and rooms will sell out rapidly...

I am quite excited for this show! I live 5 minutes from the airport and have checked out your field for a few years. I would be willing to help do setup if it means I can show off my T-35 with some paint on that battlefield! No IR equipment though, but Im sure it would make good scenery Smile

This year I plan on having a loaner tank there to allow new people a chance to come out and play with us. Just something simple. Heck maybe not even IR, just a tank for them to drive around...

Hi Dean R, Dean G here. Of course, you are more than welcome to bring your tank out and run around the field! We can always use a drone target! LOL! It is a beautiful model you have done. I followed it elsewhere online I think? 

Big Mike, we pretty much have loaners every year so would appreciate another one. I am thinking of making a static with camera that people can just sit in a corner and shoot from as tanks go by. Did it rain last year? I thought it was the year before???

Oh yes, that's right! Now I remember the big water the next morning...  Very Happy

There is a planning meeting on April 14th from 1 to 3 PM which I will be attending and if anyone else is interested you are welcome to come. I am planning on being there for noon to have a poke around. Good chance to see all the new stuff they are doing down there! And yes, I will be bringing a tank to run around with... Very Happy

Hello Dean!
You must have been browsing the Open Panzer forums, I posted the build there as I progressed. 
http://openpanzer.org/forum/index.php?action=forum
Again, I am so close to the field I could be at that meeting to figure out how I can help out.

Yea, it is well within the 5.5km of the airport we are right beside. I am going to try and be on the grounds around 10:30 11 to start marking out the field and cutting the grass. Yea, it kinda sucks having no power there. Up to you Mike if you want to go to all that trouble...
