The Bill Warner Memorial
Sky Bunny Postal Contest

Labor Day Weekend 2020

A simple contest for fun and to honor the memory of the Sky Bunny designer, Bill Warner.  This will be a 'postal' contest, so named from the days when contestants mailed in their entries.  


  • The contest is for rubber-powered free flight Sky Bunny models. The model must be "built to the plans" with no major modifications.
  • Official flights must be made between Saturday September 5, 2020 and Monday September 7th, 2020.
  • Each pilot can make unlimited attempts to get his or her single, longest flight time. Use a stopwatch or smartphone timer app.
  • Timing starts at model launch and stops when the models touches the ground, goes out of sight during the flight, or contacts any structure, tree, etc.  
  • One entry per pilot. No entry fee.
  • Report your results to by September 8, 2020. Please include the names of the pilot and timer, single best flight time and pilot's age. A photo is welcome but not required.
  • Updates and further information will be posted on this page!

JUNIORS: Those who are less than 15 years of age.
SENIORS: Those who are 15 years of age but less than 19 years of age.
