Bike for Sale (California)
FOR SALE 2005 Honda CFR 100F in good condition and was expertly tuned by Tymchek. The only reason I am selling it is that I wanted a bike with electric start and automatic clutch, so I got one.

I can bring the bike to Lost Hills if someone is interested. I am asking $1100. You can contact me at my email

Barron Field Work Day and Upcoming Meets

From: Andrew Barron

Dear Free Flight Friends,

Barron Field in Wawayanda, New York is the site of various free-flight
activity in the Northeast. It is near the intersection of Orange County
Route 12 and Gardnersville Road in the New Hampton part of the Wawayanda,
New York, entering the field at the large silo.

This Sunday (April 8) from 10am to 1pm is a work time at the field to build
and place a couple of bridges and to repair and place a couple more. Those
of you available to help would be most welcome. Bring a well-charged
electric drill (with bits for wood screws) if you have one. Before and
after the work, you are welcome to get a start on flying, as Dave Acton as
arranged it as a sanction day for flying any Free Flight models. The $5
per day field use fee is waived Sunday for those who help with the bridge
building or other field maintenance work.

As you can see from the Brooklyn Skyscraper website and from the website, a number of meets are planned here. We have the
following meets, with dates shown where available. The first five shown
are America’s Cup meets and several of these are National Cup as well.

May 21-22 Hatschek Free Flight Challenge (Skyscraper CD, to be appointed by
Dave Acton)
June 11-12 Wilbur and Orville Meet (Oliver Cai CD)
July 9-10 Skyscraper Annual

TBD Harvest Meet (John Clapp CD)
TBD Eastern U.S. Free Flight Champs (Dave Lacey CD)

Additional monthly meets: Second Sundays (April 10, May 8, August 14, Sept
11, Oct 9, Nov 13).

October 22-23 Flying Aces, Barron Field Air Races (Tom Hallman CD).

Finally, for those not too far from White Plains, NY, I remind that
tomorrow (Saturday April 9) at noon is the Annual Skyscraper Luncheon at
Sam’s of Gedney Way. Arrangements to come are made with club president Dave
Acton (914-393-7491).
