I hope that everyone is getting as excited as we are for Flite Fest 2014!
We have had our heads down working as hard as we can to get this event working as smoothly as possible.
However, instead of getting overwhelmed we have decided to keep in touch with all the people who have offered to help make this event happen. The volunteers! At the end of the day this event is community powered so we thank you for helping with that.

Volunteer Organization
Fred Provost (Flying Monkey) is going to be helping quite a bit with some of the organization aspects of volunteers so if you have any questions, he is the man. We will be posting event schedule, event map, any special contingency plans, volunteer schedule and much more information here. Our goal is that anyone wearing a Flite Fest Staff shirt during the event is as informed as possible to be able to help others.

Progress
This event blew up way bigger then we honestly expected (our original lofty goal was 100 pilots) so please excuse our mess as we figure everything out. Scaling up from 5 Porta Johns to 20, scaling from a 40x40 event tent to a 40x100 and lots of other details are taken care of but there is still lots to do!

At the end of the day, this is an event in someone's "backyard", organized by a bunch of people who have never put on an event before and will be enjoyed by a lot of people who have probably never been to a similar RC event. So if it seems like we are missing something, we probably are! If you feel like you have something unique you can contribute to the event, please don't hesitate to contact Fred (Flying Monkey) and bounce it off him.

Again, thank you so much for being willing to help make this event a success. One thing I am certain of is that we can not do this without you.

Best,
-Austin

5) Willing to float wherever needed, but here's my preference: Flite Line, Build Area, Welcome Tent, ... whatever.
6) Shirt sizes:
- me: XL

I'll have my 2 daughters with me who want to help (I asked them ;-) )... maybe they could be paired up to help with the kids inflatables area?? Or alternately, with me. I'd like to keep them together if possible. They don't have to be doing what I'm doing though.

Thanks for all you're doing.
Jason.
