2012 Montague GPS Race
Do we want to do this again ?
Last week in June and first week in July is out because of 18 meter Nationals.

Regards Dean

I certainly want to do it again. That was the highlight of 2011 for me. (Apologies to JR Aero Tow, a very close second):) I don't know where I am going to find the time off, though. I might have to see if I can take some unpaid leave, it would be worth it.

Dean, where are the 18 meter Nats. being held this year?

#4 yyz Jan 16, 2012 11:26 AM

Absolutely! This is the one event I'm looking forward to this year, Dean. How about in July or August?

I am with Rick. Just pick the date and I'll be there. I have an electric 1/3 scale Ventus now so maybe we can do an electric class with your other Antares. See my post in Scale Sailplanes for pictures.

18 meter/Std class Nationals at Montague this year. 6/24 , 6/25 practice. Race through 7/5.
Expect 40 + gliders.
Regards Dean

Good for you.
Seems like we could run them together. In fullsize the flight ends when the motor is restarted, we could do the same, I think.
Regards Dean

How does July 13, 14, 15 work.
Regards Dean

July 13,14,15 works for me.

#10 rshelby Jan 18, 2012 12:20 PM

That date works for me, Dean. And even more important, it works for Karla. She really wants to go up there again. Thanks for doing this.


#11 yyz Jan 19, 2012 01:17 PM

Those dates also work for me

#12 s2000 Jan 19, 2012 01:28 PM

And maybe me too, I will theoretically be retired by then with nothing but time to do things like go fly with my friends!

#13 yyz Jan 19, 2012 01:47 PM

Amazing place to fly and the host is THE best!

Hi All,
I have it in my schedule, I should have 3 tow planes for the event ( two for sure),
A teardrop trailer (for the towplanes) and a new tent (for me).
Very much looking forward to it

Well Dean that is five confirmed (counting you). Is that enough to make it official?
