Hi Philip! Long time no see...

Do you know if the "Winged Shadow - Sky Limit" altitude limiter is authorized for use at this contest? It's the only type I have and was hoping to get a plane going in each class for this contest...

Then I might just have to come! Does anyone know if I could park a 5th wheel RV at the contest site overnight? I know there's no hook-ups, I tent camped there last time (2009?). I'd love to bring my wife and grand-daughter down for the weekend so they can see me get beat by some of the best in the West! :-)

Hi Philip,

Radian and eSupra.

I don't know of anyone else locally that's considering coming out with me. I will need to ask around...

I am thinking this will be a lot of fun so maybe I'll be able to talk somebody into it...

Charlie
