Great news about this contest. Chris Lee, the guy that has won the last 50 Darts OVSS contests and current National Champion has confirmed he won't be able to make it.
Now someone else can win it.
See you all there.
The weather is looking super!
a cool light wind out of the north!
I know everyone has there own favorites as far as weather sites go, but I have found the ones below to be pretty much right on as far as wind direction and speed goes

This site gives the overall picture, with fronts, Highs, Lows, etc
This is a forecast map at Wind Mapper, It is very graphic

8 rounds of 10 minutes, sounds like mostly nice thermaling conditions, not much movement after the early morning "dead air hang" round until the last couple rounds.
