Contest
Long Island Hand Launch Classic Aug 1 + 2 Syosset, NY

Guys,

Were about a month away from the 4th annual hand launch contest on Long Island. It will be held on August 1 + 2 at Stillwell Woods Nature Preserve(Across form Syosset High Scool on South Woods Rd.) in Syosset, NY behind the front fields (behind the back treeline is a second field. Follow the dirt road in the south east corner to it)

Some info can be found at :

Directions and LISF info can be found at:
www.lisf.org

Registration:
http://www.flyesl.com/contest_regist...list.asp?cid=6

Come join us for a weekend of F3K competition. Awards will be given out for 1st - 3rd in Sportsman and Expert classes. As in prior years we will be having Italian and American heros. Special lunch requirements will be offered for those in need. Just notify me and we'll take care of it.


Beginners are welcome and encouraged to come. Think of this as two days of private tutoring by some of the best pilots around in discus launch gliders. I guarantee you will come away a much better pilot and have tons of fun!

Hoping to see you there,

Frank

Frank,
Already on the calender, guess I should really get cracking on the Vandal as the Epona is starting to show its age.

See you guys there.

Cheers,
Jim

I have heard that a little bird told me that you've been flying helis! Shame on you Jim. Come back to the good side! Fix your DLGs!

Ditch those motorized, money munching, whirly birds! I should know. I have a few too that have been taking time away from DLGs.

then again I love them too.

Glad to hear you'll be coming. Hope the rest of the Conn. group can make it as well!

Frank

Well, we have just put into the record books another ESL contest, CRRC HL and what a great contest it was.

I havene't seen many of our friends at many of the contests this year. I do recall all of the Long Island guys hoping that they have been holding out to come to our contest.

hope to see you there!!!

Guys,

Just a reminder that we will be closing registration on July 25th, the Saturday before the contest.

I would like to avoid registrations on field so that I can have the paperwork printed out prior to the contest. It also helps our guys with food orders and such. Thanks.

As of today, there are about 10 more days remaining to register for this fun and challenging event.

If hotels are an issue I will offer anyone in need a place in my house (fold out couch or you can bring an air mattress/sleeping bag) or if you would rather pitch a tent in my yard or whatever. I offer what I have to anyone in need.

Come and have some fun!!!

Sincerely,
Frank

The Long Island Silent Flyers are really looking forward to hosting this Easten Soaring League evemt.

If past years are any indication, this number will go up. HOWEVER, since Frank likes to close registration very early, you need to get registered soon.

Registration can be done from the calendar page:

I know I am looking forward to a great event. Frank runs a great contest.
