Next Florida contest ?

Sorry guys, I've been otherwise occupied the last few weeks, my Dad passed last Tuesday.

Looks like our last chance for an April contest is next weekend. Tom's out of town, but he says we can do a contest without him. I will be gone all of May but the weekend of the 15th.

So it would be Saturday the 24th or Sunday the 25th as a last resort (Roy can't make it Sun).

What do you guys want to do? Chime in here so we can make a decision based on the maximum # of pilots that can come.

Sounds like we can't get a quorum for April. The only weekend I'm in the country in May is Kennyworld, so I'll leave it up to Tom to organize May. June sucks too, the 5th is the only weekend I'm around, how about a warmup for The Bruce?
July anybody?

Any word on a May contest? I'm in Orlando probably May 23-26. I might be able to fly in the 22 or the 21st if there is something going on. Else I'll bring my travel plane with me and just try to find some place to fly near my hotel. I won't have a car.

So I am going to be in Orlando this Saturday, May 22 and I basically have the entire day to my own devices. According to The Great One, Orlando is like the best home away from home in the world, a great place to do an 8 hour slope, etc.

So, what details can you all give me? I arrive in Orlando at 10 AM. I won't have a car. I'm planning on bringing a mini hand launch along.

Hey Ryan,
There Are some good fields near the airport you fly your mini at. We will be at the local field about the time you get in. Its about 40 mins from the airport.
The slope that Gordon did his 8 hour is down in south Florida a few hours away.

Thanks for the info, Jody.

If anybody would be interested in giving me a ride to the field I'd gladly buy you lunch or dinner. I have Saturday to my devices. I'm at the Gaylord Palms which according to Google Maps is about 30 min from your field. Else as I already mentioned I'm getting into the airport about 10 AM.

If not that is cool too.

Ryan
