I think it was Dion that said "I feel more like a ProBro today than ever..." That's how I felt yesterday!! This is what I wrote on RCU on the subject of how things went down at SMALL:

I've slept since then so the fury of how we were treated at SMALL has worn off. I guess I'll spare the details but to say we were harrassed is a serious understatement. I knew we were in trouble on my first flight (30 sec in to it) when the field marshal yelled at me to move my 3D over the tall grass. I said "Dude, these are all small planes, I can't see it that far away." The tall grass was about twice as far away as the average runway is wide. I'd be hard pressed to fly my 40 size birds that far away. That set the theme for the weekend.

After all day Fri and half of Sat everyone was tired of it. The dude wanted to control everones flight to the detail. This was a big event and there were all kinds of planes. Many flew full out slower than we would harrier. These powered kites were going up and down the runway at a snales pace, as were these little electric Cessnas that could do entire flights in about 10 feet. The last time he came over to yell at me I said "dude, what's the difference between what I'm doing and what those guys do? Except that I can get out of the way a lot faster!!" (He was clearly anti 3-D and from what others said he simply can't fly himself) well, to say he "went off" is mild. He started screaming, cussing, sounded like he just lost his mind! I flew out the tank and while annother bro got my plane I went over and confronted him. after I totally blew him away, he finaly said "Ok, you're right, I am unproffesional and childish. If you don't like it, just leave."

So I went over to the CD (very cool older dude) and told him how the other guy went about this whole thing. In the mean time Paul (Who had done his share of antagonizing LOL :lol: ) did some little thing over the runway and our buddy BLASTED him. Poor Paul had no idea this had happened!!! It was UGLY MAN!!

So what was the victory? The CD spent some time talking to the other dude, and VIOLA.......they said "hey, why don't you guys go over to the control line area and 3D all you want?" SO WE DID!!!!!!!!!!!! for a couple of hours we flew our sacks off and noone messed with us!!!!

End of stuff on RCU

There are some great stories from this weekend and we had a great time. Paul was in rare form. He was showing off the Tacos in a huge way, really got guys interested. He really was flying gret! The funniest thing he did was violate a total strangers plane and then chase/follow the guy with the taco as he carried his plane off the runway. I swear it was like a 3 Stooges show.

At the indoor we really had a ball. There were more midairs than I have ever seen. Paul did the first ever "Rafter Trimming" since there was no trees around. I was shocked to find that TRs and climbing flat spinns and water falls were all pouring from my own thubs INDOORS!!!!! What a goo time.

Overall the participants treated us well. There was the one Field Marshal and one pilot who harrassed us. Other than that the pilots came up to us over and over....."what is that plane? What is the motor? How does it do that?....." and there were some really cool non-3D planes ther too.

Sloan, Mika and myself didn't get looked on too highly at the internet flyin either. I was at the impound while Mika and Dave were playing streamer tag over the runway. The CD was bitchin and moanin about it but was too fat and lazy to actually get up and try to do something about it. They weren't even going to let a few of us fly our helis till one of the guys pitched a bitch. We were "allowed" time for one flight, all of us up at the same time.
These circle jerks are gonna have to learn that we come to FLY!!
later,,,Matt

Yeah, I cant wait for Albany where I can fly where I can actually see my plane. I heard Gator and Paul went to one end of the runway last year, I asked but it was a no go. My mistake for asking.
I still had a good time, I got to meet Eric Briant and Ben and the Salem crew and got in some good Capthis bashing!

That's why we're going to Jeff's deal this year.... No bitchin' and complaining about scared, stray nut sacks running around because they ran for their lives at the site of the 3D Moooonsters!!
