Weather Forces Cancellation Of Joe Nall At Triple Tree Aerodrome

Owners Ask For Registration Fees To Be Donated To Help Offset Losses

After more than three decades of spectacular weather during the world-famous Joe Nall RC event, the forecast for the remainder of the week has forced the board to make the decision to cancel the event and have everyone off the beautiful Triple Tree grounds not later than noon, Tuesday, May 15.

In a notice posted on the Triple Tree website, the board said that the "very difficult" decision was made only after carefully considering the safety of those attending the event. Triple Tree is over four hundred acres of beautifully manicured grass that can easily handle single, short-lived rain storms. However, rain totals of 4-6 inches have been forecast beginning Tuesday afternoon. The rain is not expected to end until sometime after the following Monday. With this amount of water, the camping areas and roads will quickly become impassable. Sudden, heavy rain events could also cause localized flooding in the river area.

The cancellation could significantly impact the financial health of the airport and the event "unless our friends decide to donate their fees from this year's Nall. If you can help us by doing so, please do. Triple Tree is a 501c(3) non-profit so your donation could be tax deductible. Many have already done so, and we greatly appreciate it. As you know, we invest every cent back into Triple Tree. We are always trying to make your experience better and more enjoyable. The new ladies' bathhouse and pilot's lounge is just the latest example.

"Thanks again for your understanding. It's a tough decision but the safety of our guests will always come first!"
