  1. It's that time of year again to start planning the Rolla Modelers Association's annual fall event. This year will be our 8th year doing the Rolla Big Bird event.

    We have hosted some large events in the past and they just keep getting bigger and bigger each year! We hosted the first ever Giant Scale News event and have also hosted some Huckfest events in the past.

    We are located in central Missouri, but have attracted pilots from Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, Iowa, Illinois, Ohio, Massachusetts, Indiana and Kentucky. The know this is a "Do not miss event"

    Don't let the event name fool you, it's not just for big birds. Big, small, balsa, foam, gas, electric, kerosene(heli), JP8(heli).......BRING IT, FLY IT!!

    The event is still in the early planning stages, but I have already secured some good prizes and raffle items:) and there is still lot's more time to get more!!

    Our field is located at the Rolla National Airport in Vichy, Missouri. Hwy 63 and 28. About 1.5 hours SW of St. Louis, Missouri.

    More info to come......

  5. @Decal Dennis, Did you realize this is the same weekend as the Tulsa Huckfest in the Heartland? Just thought I would mention it as I am just about half way between both events and even though I will be at an IMAC event that weekend, there may be others that would like to attend both events. Don't kill the messenger, please, I just want to fly :)

  6. Besides last year, it's the same weekend we have done the past 8 years. We moved it up a weekend last year and lost a bunch of the usual pilots, so this year we are sticking to the normal weekend. We'll let you fly IMAC here also:)

  9. Lodging in Rolla, Missouri.....most 15-20 minutes from the flying field.

    Rolla is a huge college town, so there is plenty of places to stay and eat. I will do my best to get a room discount set up for the event.
