There is no power at the flight site.  You could try to charge at the gatehouse or washroom but would have to ask permission I guess.  These places are not close to the action at all.  Therefore, it is best to bring charged batteries and plan to recharge from your car.
The club does have a generator but someone has to bring it from the field to the float site with gas.  
Perhaps someone else can organize that.

Just wondering how people charge their batteries at the upcoming float float. Any 120v near by or off you vehicle or is it bring your car battery ?

There is a new technology coming out on the market soon to shoot video w/o any assistance.
I think it is well suited for our application.
Some recent video clip taken by Soloshot-3 device:

Darn!! The city is supposed to interlock their lock with ours so that either lock will open the chain. Obviously someone screwed up. I will notify Mike D'Antonio and Bruce to contact the city.  
 
Meanwhile our members should be advised that if possible, we should be interlocking with the city lock too.

Does anyone know why the gates were locked with the city padlock? (not the one with combination). I arrived at the field around 10:30 this morning and wasn't able to get in

3D Movies in the Sky
A U of T startup is developing a whole new kind of night-time entertainment:

http://arrowonics.com/
 
"Using technology developed in part at U of T’s aerospace program, a Toronto start-up called Arrowonics has created a way to coordinate and choreograph light-emitting drones so that they create pictures in the sky. For a series of shows this summer at Ontario Place, they’ll be doing displays dedicated to “Canada/Ontario 150.” A loon, a hockey stick and a canoe are among the images you may see. (Weather permitting of course. Drones don’t like wind or rain.)
 
Founded a little more than two years ago, the company builds on technology originated by Prof. Hugh Liu (who spoke at HVRCF a couple of years ago) , head of the Flight Systems and Control lab at U of T, and developed by one his former grad students, Henry Zhu (MASc 2014), now the company’s chief technology officer."
