Tom Siler Fr3ak Tails For Sale

I have a set of Tom Siler's old-school Fr3ak tails for sale - the semi elliptical kind, not the more raked he's been making lately. Both unused, and both are hinged.

$75 for the set, and I can bring them to the AZ Open. I'll keep this post active until the weekend, when they'll go on the Classifieds.

Does anyone have more precise direction than these:
"I believe they are going to the Surprise field which is on Litchfield road, about 1/2 way between Greenway & Thunderbird Roads"

I need to meet someone there, who also hasn't been there.

Which side of road is it on heading south on Litchfield?
Is it a park or just an open space?

Thanks,

Gary

It looks like it's both a park and a big open space. It appears to be on the west side of litchfield.

Gary it is on the west side of Litchfield after greenway and before Waddell if your going south. Turn right in Acoma then your first left which is 140th dr. At the round a bout go into the parking lot and you are there.

Hope that is accurate enough

Sounds Fun Scott.

Let me know if you need Excel scoring sheets, or want to use F3Kscore (or F3Kmaster if you have a Droid).

Nope, no dates. Last year, the beat the heat series started in late May, so it's just a guess. It just seems that early May is the last we can possibly expect less-than scorching temps.

I just don't have any fun when it's so hot that I have to ride the line between "not enough water makes me sick" and "too much water makes me sick." Working a laborious gig in a warehouse doesn't make it any easier, especially when the alternative is to sleep in on the weekend.

I guess there are many ways to interpret "Beat The Heat". We can talk about potential dates during the AZ Open. A lot depends on whether or not we're "boycotting" the IHLGF, which would free up April, and we'll have to work around other contests (ALES, TD).
