Can you post directions to the East Gate or are there signs directing us there? When can practice start on Friday?
Is the Airport shut down that weekend?
Thanks, Steve

Steve,

If you have an RV the East Gate is past the airport office building and parking lot on the right. We will be there Fri morning. We can practice all day. I am trying to get the NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) for Fri as well as Sat-Sun (0830-5). You will be briefed on procedures at the airport when you get there.
Thanks.
Daren.

The event post says noon on Friday. If we can begin practicing earlier than that, I'll make an effort to show up much earlier. Is it confirmed that we have the airspace all day Friday?

I needs a lot of practice.

Steve, that's just a guideline, we hadtoput a number down. As I said we'll be there in the morning, after 10 or so to be safe. Most people arrive throughout the day. Come after 10 and you can fly if we have a spotter and someone on the radio you're good to go.

Drive safe. See you Fri.

Wow, what a weekend. If you needed some practice flying in the wind, this was the place to be. This event was truly a family affair. Wives, sons and daughters a plenty.
It was great catching up with all of our friends in the extreme N.E..
Thank you Scott and Mary along with all of those that helped to put on a great event.
Steve and Iyone

Steve, Iyone and all. "Wow what a weekend" indeed. Despite some weather on Fri, Sat and (what we call) a little breeze) on Sunday. That's our bug repellant at Plum
Island!
Seriously, thanks to all pilots and callers/spotters and volunteers to help us get in a full contest. I don't think I've heard that many "safety" calls in one round on Saturday but you guys get the perceverence award.
What a real pleasure seeing so many new faces to our fairly new event. I hope traffic and other obstacles of summer travel to a tourist destination doesn't keep people from returning to one of the best venues in New England. Our spectators love us and we love them. Thanks to all who interacted and answered questions. It does not go unnoticed. We succeeded in promoting the airport, the community, aviation and the hobby in addition to education on lookers about our great SIG- IMAC. Looking forward to our 6th Annual Plum Island IMAC Scale Aeronautics Competition. Spread the word and bring a new pilot. We will be scheduling spring and fall Intro/ primers at Plum Island and other venues. I'm working on a intro at Concord Skyhawks in NH as a hopeful road back to the Granite State IMAC. Tentative date is Sept 24th. Details to follow. I'll be looking for instructors!
Many thanks to Scott and the McCormack family for running the contest. We have a great group in this region and this event was a shining example of that. I'll be working on a recap when I get throu the pics and vids. Thanks to our "paparazzi" Andy Fagen. I'm trying to get a combined article in MA sharing the Maine IMAC Challenge and The Plum island IMAC as a promotion of the oldest and youngest NE IMAC competitions.
Your host, The Plum Island Airport RC Flyers.
Ps. If you have feedback or suggestions please send them my way.
Ladies- we learned our lesson on a spare potty!
Any other feedback is welcome. Thanks, Daren
