Following a suggestion from Tony, discussions from the Breezy Hill Facebook Page:

OK Flyers, how about a:
..........................."Breezy Hill 1/2A Day"..............
...........on the weekend of April 17th & 18th?!........
All Brands of Engines from .15 to .010 Control Line or R/C
..................................................................................................
To keep this all in one lump, I copied and posted Allen's thoughts on the stuff we might do:

I'm all in! However the next weekend would be much better for me. My wife has an event that weekend. Are we to have any events? Fun Fly-Fun Events. Like most planes, oldest plane flown, balloon bust, conquers de elegance, or even informal combat, freestyle stunt (spectator judged include all flights even first flights can be spectacular freestyle!)
...............................................
and mine:

Dude! We can totally do that! Though you may get saddled with organizing/directing the various sub events!
Spiderwire is cheap, and Patrick's always blabbing about flying on long lines, so we could have a "Long Lines Event".
And maybe a "Most Loops on a Tank of Gas" with Babe Bees.
Oh, the mind boggles!🤪🤪😲🤪

OK...the NEW Date of Breezy Hill's 1/2A Day is April 17th & 18th.
This will also give us a chance to talk it over in our April Meeting on the 14th.

This will be the Official Thread of the Mayhem.

It's all in good humor Ron, and I'm sure Kim understands that. If we didn't like the guy so much it would be different.

 "Breezy Hill's 1/2A Day"  April 17th & 18th...Is In The Books!!!! Empty Our first Two Events:

Post  Kim Sat Apr 03, 2021 9:03 am

Update and thoughts on "Breezy Hill's 1/2A Day"
Update:  April 3rd

Trying to keep all the stuff for our 1/2A Day in one spot ('till we get it all locked down and post our "Official Rules" ---humor there:).

This may clutter the Event Calendar for a while, but the 17th and 18th will be on us quickly, and it all will be transferred to it's own post.  Please keep in mind that this is ALL about fun, and the rules will be viewed with a "looseness" to serve that mission!

Proposed Event Rules for our Breezy Hill 1/2A Day (both control line):
======================
"Most Loops"

3 Classes:
Babe Bee (6cc Tanks)
Golden Bee Tanks (8cc Tanks).
Black Widow (8cc Tanks).

Hand or Wheel Launch.
Pilot must complete one level lap (to give the launchers time to run!)...Judge will call, "Now!" as this lap is completed
The pilot then pulls as many loops as he dares with his remaining fuel.  Stall/Spin incidents will be counted as one loop, and added to his tally in recognition of his sacrifice.
------------------------------
"Longest Lines"
3 Classes:
Babe Bee
Golden Bee
Black Widow and Others

I've got some 10lb "Spiderwire" with handles and lines starting at 50ft...but we may make up new sets if the competition becomes "Heated".

Wheel or Hand Launch
Counted Laps begin at launch.
Pilot MUST complete 5 laps for Official Flight (this may be changed according to the perceived ridiculousness of the flight).
-----------------------------------

This IS just a s draft, and any suggestions/opinions are requested.
We got to keep it simple to have fun though!

Took some moments to ready my 1/2A Ringmaster for next weekend's "!/2A Fun Fly"...ASSUMING THE WIND EVER STOPS BLOWING!!!

The little sheet-winger will be flying behind a good running 6cc tanked Babe Bee, itself sporting one of the new aluminum backplates from Cox International ( https://coxengines.ca/.../cox--049-babe-bee-fuel-tank ), a right-torque prop to help it hang out on long lines, and with it's land gear removed.

It's original Golden Bee will be tagging along for a quick swap-out.

From the Breezy Hill R/C Flyers Facebook Page:

Breezy Hill's "1/2A Day"

One day of cold, damp air, followed by one with warm, sunny skies, both with plenty (and I mean PLENTY) of engine tinkering, jokes and laughter...and great food served up by President Ronnie.

Nitro was burning and castor oil was slinging as assorted versions of Leroy Cox's tiny engines either screamed or sputtered, or both, with new airframes and old dinosaurs taking to the air.

Allen Bagg had a small fleet of planes, but had some engine problems, and did some "mix and match" with their parts, giving him a hyper-speed combat wing to fly on Sunday.

Leo's typically high performance engines hauled their planes around their circles, with some crazy great stunts by his Medallion .049-powered Ringmaster flying on 60 FOOT LINES!!!!
His Medallion apparently has an identity crisis, and thinks it's a Tee Dee.

Allen also rounded up some prizes, with SIG sending a Mini Zilch kit and two bottles of SIG bond glue, along with Brodak giving dealer cost on a Baby Clown.

Mixed in with this are some balsa and foam gliders which will be given to kids who can attend our little get-togethers.
Thanks to Steven Jany and Alvin Petrowske for their continued great work in keeping Breezy Hill looking so good, and to President Ronnie for feeding us!

Thanks to everyone for the great time!

Here's an album of the weekend...some photos were previously posted, but I wanted to get them all in one lump, and there will probably be others pop up as they're found:

Looks like it was a great time, Thanks for sharing!

Flying.049 on long lines is intriguing, I would like to know a little more about it if possible...What are the major challenges?...How can you design or modify to better handle this?....

Flying.049 on long lines is intriguing, I would like to know a little more about it if possible...What are the major challenges?...How can you design or modify to better handle this?....

Maybe Leo will check in here, but I believe he just made up the lines and went for it. His Medallion-Powered Ringmaster seemed to have no problem pulling the 5lb Spectra lines, and all the extra sky really let the little plane play.
