Dan,

With the airshow going on this weekend, is parking along Kenny going to be a problem for the show?

 

Thanks,

Mike Ronnau

Mike - There is no entrance to the grounds of the Air Show from Kenney Street [ it is on the "wrong" side of the Airport] so we have never had a serous parking problem with the Model Show. I do not remember how many years the Air Show and Model show have been on the same weekend [ maybe 6 to 8?] but I have never had a parking problem. The Air show has a huge parking lot on the south side of the airport and is close to the Airshow entrance. The drive from the model show to the airshow is maybe 3 minutes, you could walk it if you were in good shape [ that leaves me out!]. Dan

Thanks Dan. The airshow is a bonus I wasn't expecting when I planned on attending.

 

I can't wait to see the N9M fly.

I'll be there. Is there a link to anyplace I can download entry forms for this? Oh, and if you can, I'll need a space about 6 and a half feet long by 6 inches wide for my Panzerzug BP-44 armored train. I hope this won't be a problem?

Mark - Space is a real Problem at this show. It would be a good idea to contact Show coordinator Rich Durham or our Prez, Rex McCoy tp make arramgments. Thier contact info is on the IPMS San Diego web page listed on IPMS Nationial home page and go to "chapters". I hope you can show this, i would love to see it! Dan
