I am a possible flyer, likely spectator. Hope the weather is good! Any links to the rules for the event?

All Kitfox pilots are most welcome at the event! I encourage you to register and participate! if you have an electric glider, you are more than qualified to be a registered pilots with full benefits We may even be able to lend you a CAM device if you don't have one.

We can probably get the Kitfox into a smaller field than I can land some of my models! How about if we swoop in Saturday morning and camp under the wing?!!! Naaah, a hotel and a car will be my mode this time, especially if I participate, not much room for a wing in the Kitfox!

I have a few e-powered gliders, but I may want to just see this event before I dive in. Let me think...but I hope to be there either way!

We can probably add you to the pilots list on the field and print new score cards for you. But I again encourage you to just register and try it. What do you have to lose if you try it? sounds like you are planning to be on the field both days anyway!

The same words apply to all new pilots! We need a lot more pilots to make the event a bit more interesting for everybody! Please show your support and sign up!

We usually have a warm-up/practice event a couple of weeks before - you could always check out how it works then...

Got to get back to bulding my scratch built - running out of time

Budget is a bit tight this year but I think I'll be returning, I'll see if I can bring Keith along again, he has a 2m glider himself now.

Hope to get the skins done this weekend.
