Kenney Reservoir Splash-in

The event is asplash-inBBQ picnic and BINGO/Accuracy Contestand is open to all.


This year we will have a BINGO contest.  The "bombs" are tennis balls.  Winners of the contests will receive a $100 prize.  All aircraft may participate (seaplanes and landplanes).  Participating pilots must be briefed and acknowledge the contest rules.  Anyone, pilot or spectator, is eligible to play.


The BINGO Contesttennis balls are available for a donation of $5 each, with a minimum donation of $20 per contestant.  The contestant will select a pilot to drop the balls.  The contestant may fly along with the pilot only at the pilot's sole discretion.  A floating "Bingo Card" will be placed off-shore.  The pilot will drop 1 or more tennis balls per pass until the first winning combination is achieved or there are no more balls.  The contestant that achieves a winning combination (5-in-a-row, or 4-corners) wins $100.  There will be only one winner and if no winning combination is achieved, there will be a one-ball "fly-off" with the winner being closest to the "N" 3 square (ie, center of the Bingo Card). 


If you are planning to attend and will be flying into 4V0, we have arranged ground transportation.


Pilots participating in the CONTEST, please respond by July 10, with your aircraft number.  Required information will be sent to you.
