Hi Dave,

I plan to be there Saturday. I will PM you my phone number
in case you don't have it. We have an outer gate that is
sometimes locked, so you have to call when you get there.
Sunday morning, from 7:30 on, someone will be at the gate,
so access will be no problem.
What time do you think you will get there on Saturday?

Preston

I'm not sure, depends on what we get into earlier in the day. I'll call you some time tomorrow and let you know.

Going to finish getting ready and head out.

Thanks!!

Just after you get on 102 going east there is a McDonald's. Behind that there is a Hanaford Supermarket. They have a nice salad bar and plenty of ready made sandwiches. If you're coming from the east on 102 there are several supermarkets on the way over from 93. Plenty to choose from.

We had a great day. 14 pilots, excellent weather and 8 rounds of flying. Thanks to all who made the trip and especially to David Beach for all his work to make this contest a success. Hope to see y'all next year.

Final results are here:

Thanks especially to Preston for running a great contest. Terrific chocolate chip cookies too.

Please tell me that David Beach had a locator in his plane.

Thanks, Preston. We had some of the best weather, ever, for a soaring event. The contest was well run and it was nice flying with you fellows. Contgrats to Denny, Tom, Preston, and Jim.

I hope by some miracle that Dave's airplane is found.

Hope to see you at the Mini Polecat or the regular Polecat next June.

Dave R.

No, we did not find David's plane and he did not have a locator in it.

However, he is ordering another Pulsar 3.6 (full house) today or tomorrow and plans to still make the mini-Polecat.
