Don't know much about this event except it's in FL. Are there speed and racing events, what do they have there?

Thanks,
MM

Looked at my King Orange trophy  from 1980, First Slow Rat, Second Record Ratio Speed and Third Rat.  I also flew Stunt.  Cold and misty all weekend, but had a great time.  The stunt fliers were using lighter fluid to start their motors, quite a few attempts when the motor would not start. Les McDonald was Flying the Stiletto model that is now in the AMA museum.
