The Ohio Indoor RC Flyers (OIRF) and the Mentor Area Radio Control Society (MARCS), along with the AMA, would like to let you know about a large indoor flying event in our area.

Saturday March 25 - the NE Ohio Indoor Electric Festival (or NEF as we call it).

Would you please notify your members.  With the cancellation of the Horizon Indoor in Columbus and the Hobbicio EFest in Illinois, the NEF is the only major indoor event this season in our area.  We need your support!  Our vendors are counting on it!   The future of indoor flying is at stake! 

The NEF is an all-day event at the University of Akron's Stile Athletic House, a full-size track and field building on campus in the middle of Akron. Time:  9am until 9pm.   There will be a few contests but mostly its open flying.  One end-zone is reserved for 3D flying.  

AMA Pilot registration is $25 for the day.

Only $10 for AMA youth age 10 - 17

Free admission for AMA pilots age 12 and under   

$5 spectators.   Free parking on campus

Here's our website - for the event flyer, directions, information, and on-line registration 

This is a sanctioned AMA event and its in the AMA calendar.

We are also on Facebook, just search for "Ohioelectricfly" and we also have a thread on RCGroups.

The Ohio Quad Racing Group (QRGO) will be sponsoring Tiny Whoop Racing at the NEF.  If you would like to join in the Tiny Whoop Races be sure to join the site and join the QRGO chapter. It'll save some time on raceday to add you to the race event.
