I certainly want to do it again. That was the highlight of 2011 for me. (Apologies to JR Aero Tow, a very close second) I don't know where I am going to find the time off, though. I might have to see if I can take some unpaid leave, it would be worth it.

Absolutely! This is the one event I'm looking forward to this year, Dean. How about in July or August?

I am with Rick. Just pick the date and I'll be there. I have an electric 1/3 scale Ventus now so maybe we can do an electric class with your other Antares. See my post in Scale Sailplanes for pictures.

Mac,
Good for you.
Seems like we could run them together. In fullsize the flight ends when the motor is restarted, we could do the same, I think.

That date works for me, Dean. And even more important, it works for Karla. She really wants to go up there again. Thanks for doing this.

Hi All,
I have it in my schedule, I should have 3 tow planes for the event ( two for sure),
A teardrop trailer (for the towplanes) and a new tent (for me).
Very much looking forward to it
Scott
