For those of you not following the TS, George made the team again! WOO HOO!! Jun-bug took first, Mike Smith second, George third, and Mike Seid secured the alternate position.

That's quite a feat with a bum wrist. I think we were all watching Charlie move up the standings, but time ran out. Congrats!

I'm looking forward to fun(d) raisers like we flew in 2011/12. Combine a day of DLG'ing with Norm's BBQ (Hint ..) and we should see the crowds we used to have. Count me in for planning/scoring/eating/drinking.

Norm - if you are willing to BBQ one of your fantastic creations, we could host a DLG get-together for George at my place. With cooler temps next month, it would be a catered patio tee-shirt affair with a low $1.00 cover charge to be donated to the US F3K effort.

to one and all .
i would start getting ready for the a heck of a season .. as all of you know the team has been chosen and george has made the cut once again . there will be alot of contest to get him in shape after his hand gets fixed until then i guess we found the contest scorer we've been looking for .
if anyone has ideas for fund raising lets get together and get them started .
im thinking of doing fund raiser contest in the near future either at suprise field or the elliot bowl sites what do you guys think . im looking forward to getting together with all to do some flying once it cools off !!!!!!!! john

Let's kick it off at Lee's place. Will notify some of the folks who have expressed interest in DLG'ing and may not be following this thread. I'm assuming that AMA membership is not required ...

Cheers, Charles

We're a loosely affiliated group of DLG pilots, dispersed across the Valley. As such, we have no designated flying field or meeting place. The Chandler Bowl has become a fairly hostile environment for DLG'ing. Used to be that we inofficially claimed the southern half, while the power-guys used the section close to the Ramada. Nowadays, I consider it too dangerous to stand on the field - too many yahoos with more ambition than piloting skills, on strafing runs and crashing everywhere.

I'll send you a PM, and we should meet for lunch one day. I'm the guy who lives behind the western wall ...

Saturday DLG at the Dirt Field

We plan to fly DLG on the (former CASL) dirt field next to the water tanks in Chandler Saturday morning, starting at around 7:30 am. Confirmed attendees are Dale and Darren, and hopefully Dana and Norm will join us.

Darren has DLG'd before, but Dale (Soarwest) is new to this discipline. It would be nice if one of you more experienced pilots showed up to demonstrate what it's all about. My planes and flying skills are not the best advertisement for F3k.

Cheers, Charles

My left foot starting giving me acute pain during the TS contest and I am not sure why. It was X-Ray'd and I see things I personally don't like but the doc says it all looks good in the X-Ray.

It feels like a really bad sprain but I don't remember any sudden onset of pain or any missteps so I am not sure.
