Dave,

We'd love to have you.

Under an hour. Easy drive. Fall foliage. Make a romantic long weekend out of it.

Hey...let's not rewrite history. Dave asked me about coming up.

And you are playing a little too hard to get.

Come on, guys, we're looking for 20+.

Are you planning on beginning the contest early, before thermals really develop, to keep it from being an easy day?

We are flying man-on-man and everybody has the opportunity to fly the same air at the same time, though the air from group to group will change, the scores are always normalized so the best time in that group gets 1,000 points, whether he flies five minutes or ten.

The contest will begin at 9:00 am.

You're only a hop, skip and a jump away. I hope we get to count you in.

9am should be early enough to cause a spread, even through several groups. 8am would be even better! Don't start the contest late just to accommodate travelers.

So, are you gonna make it?
A name would be nice, in either case.
