Happening in 5 cities across the USA ,,

''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''

"Hi! Tomorrow is the national Red Bull Flugtag in Long Beach, it's basically a competition of teams that have designed "Flying machines", and then they try to fly them off a dock. It's a funny event to attend and take pictures of. I guess it could be suggested as a meetup for tomorrow, up to you!

Doors open at 10 AM, and the first team will be "flying" at noon. Here's the link to the event:

Thanks!

Alba Moral "

 Thank you Alba, an excellent idea..

 

"Pilots launch their team-powered flying machines off a 30-foot ramp into the wavy waters below. 

Only self-constructed gliders with a max wingspan of 28 feet and a max weight of 400 pounds (including pilot) will be cleared for launch"

This looks interesting and too good to not make a meetup out of it.. If Someone wants to HOST it I will make it a hosted event ,,

 If NOT then it will be unhosted  and up to you to find each other... Unfortunately I am not able to attend this one,,,  The potential for great images is there ? 

"Flying machines" off the end of a dock?  What could be better ? Sounds like something "Monty Python" would have dreamed up.

    Accidentally uploaded my Red Bull pics in the General album.
    Still learning how the site works.

    Nice photos. I was wondering. I went to this event with another Meetup group. Is it bad taste to post the same photos in two different groups? (Can I post here also?)

      That's a good question,, I like this question.. I prefer that photos posted here be taken with this group unless otherwise stated .. There was no host for this one so,, I think it would be ok to post what you have . But,, not in both groups. Choose 1 or the other

    It was fun! Though I knew about it kind of late, I wanted to share it here in case anybody could at least make it on their own.

    This wasn't a real meetup, just a suggestion by a member, but a good one. Had no meeting place and no idea if other members were there.

      ... Sometimes that's how we have to do something that comes in at the last minute rather than miss out entirely ...

    Aw, shoot! I thought it was for next weekend until I looked more closely. I have to get my daughter to her ACT test tomorrow morning. :( I wish I could make it, it sounds like a ton of fun.

      I know,, I also got a late notice on it or I would have posted it sooner ,, It has a real Pythonesque Steam Punk vibe to it ..

    Unfortunately I found out about this too late and cant think of any way to weasel out of a family commitment..
