Press Release: The Relay For Life Air Show At Farshore Field
Team Sunbeamers welcomes you to the 4th Annual Relay For Life Air Show Fly-in at Farshore Field.
The Sunbeamers team welcomes you to the 4th Annual Farshore Field Air Show Fly-in on Armed Forces Day this Saturday the 20th of May between the hours of 8AM to 4PM SLT. There will be planes on display with information about them. Some Pilots will be on hand to give rides and flight demonstrations or you can just BYOAP [Bring Your Own AirPlane] and stunt around yourself.
From 4PM till 6PM SLT there will be an after flights dance and activities in The Goblin Cave located on the hill over looking the field. The featured music in honor of Armed Forces Day will have a WWII cantina sound including late 30’s big bands. No theme dressing needed but if you want, ok, no contest, just socializing and relaxing after a hard day of flying.
During the show there will be a number of activities to participate in. These activities we ask for a donation to the Relay For Life kiosk located at each. These include being shot out of a cannon straight up to about 300 Meters where a provided parachute gently brings you back down. You keep the special RFL 2017 textured parachute for free. Then you can help cool each other by taking turns dunking your partner in a nice cool dunk tank, that is instead of a beanbag you fire a German 88mm shell into its target!! How often do you get to shoot such an historical gun? During the air show hours there will be a Blimp Bicycle Race. For a donation you enter and are given for free a bicycle blimp you pedal through a series of rings above the ground. Since you must use the provided craft there will be no advantage in using a faster vehicle. There will be some tricky turns but nothing too hard as it is your skill that will govern your performance. You need not be present to receive the prizes of 500L for first, 250L for second, 100L for third. There will be other activities so come explore.
