Welcome to the online home of the
Saskatoon Heli Annual Gathering
- - - 2013 - - -
Plans are under way for the nineth annual Saskatoon
Heli Annual Gathering. This event will be held on the first weekend in
June at the HCRCC field.
Our goal is to get as much of the heli community out of hibernation, and
ready for the summer. This is a non-competitive event geared towards promoting
our hobby, friendship, and fun. This is a great event for newcomers to
the R/C Helicopter Hobby, to learn, get assistance, or just see a wide
variety of equipment and talent. Talent is by no means a requirement.We
encourage those just starting, or those that have been out of flying for
a while, to pack up your helis and head to SHAG. There will be experienced
pilots onsite to help you with setup, tips on hovering, forward flight,
Whether you fly nitro birds, or electrics, there will be something for
you at SHAG.
Pilot registration will be $15. For lunch on Sat. and Sun., the world
famous HCRCC burgers will be available from the club's concession as well
as drinks, etc.
Fri. noon until dark - HCRCC field gate will be opened
by noon if you want to do any fine tuning before the official start. The
field is still open for all HCRCC members until Sat., so be sure to use
the frequency board. You can use the stub runways at either end for takeoff,
hovering, and landing if there are planes in the air. Absolutely NO
3D flight allowed in the stub areas.
