Great Pumpkin Glider Fest - October 18, 19, 20
Thanks to the Rhode Island Soaring Club, this year's Great Pumpkin event will be held at their fantastic sod farm fields near Richmond, RI. The fields have to be seen to be appreciated, so come out and join us. Bring your own lunch, desert is included with registration.
Friday October 18th is a practice day at the 43 Beaver Ridge School House Road fields. Open flying (winch and ALES), with LSF cross country courses set up for both 1K and 2K.
Saturday October 19th is an Unlimited Thermal Duration contest. We will be flying open winches with retrievers and using raw scores.
Sunday's contest is an ALES League event using 200 meter altitude limit. Format will be random groups with man-on-man scoring.
Both contests will be held at the field across from 52 Dugway Bridge Road. Entry fees are $20 per contest day.

I'm in for Saturday!
Haven't flown a TD contest in 10 years. This could be interesting?!

Goal and return
How will the cross country course be set up? Will we need a convertable or is there some other way to do a 1K level 3 goal? We don't get much of a chance to do CC in the east..

see my plane at 1K?
Well..I'm not so sure. Maybe with those Zippy magnification glasses I just saw for sale on TV. It's a really big field!
