And if that was not enough for a fun weekend we will also have a raffle to support the F3K world team.

There will be several prizes to be announced over the next several days but "one" of them is a new Mystique 2.9m ARF Sailplane/Glider which you can see here

All proceeds will go to the USA F3K world team fund. Tickets are $5 ea or 5 for $20.

I will arrive in Atlanta late Friday, I'm a DLG newbee, is there time on Saturday morning for a little practice and what is the earliest I can get in the flying field on Saturday?

We will get you some room to practice as this is a big field and there are a great many helpers to assist you.

Thank's guy's, my friend Jason Sosa is also a rookie but he will be there on Friday to get some practice in when he pick's up his Blaster3 from one of the other competitors. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you.

Hi Burt,

I'm a NASA member here in Atlanta but do not do the DLG sport. I'll be out Saturday & hopefully Sunday so if you need another timer, helper, gopher, etc I'll get with you Saturday morning to volunteer. A good contest needs plenty of volunteers and I'll be glad to do my share. - Randy Kuntz. (RKuntz1234@aol.com)

Weather is looking good - here is a picture of the next 3 days that shows thermal strength and wind. These maps come from XCSkies which I use for R/C cross country.

I have been away from handlaunch since the javelin throw was king but I am feeling the pull to come back.
Since it is only 8 hours away, you guys are making me consider driving up to the Punkin Chunk to begin catching up on what has changed.
Hopefully I can find a good, used DLG while I'm there.
(Now to convince the wife...) Update: Done!! I had her when I mentioned that there would be T-shirts...

So True and I will have some FireFly's with me. My son and are planning to camp and we have extra room so if anyone wants to hang out on the field Friday or Saturday night feel welcome. We are bringing a 5man tent and a 2man tent. We may just sleep in the back of the van so we deff have room for anyone who wants to stay over.
