Countdown

Well guys... Tomorrow is approaching....weather still looks cooperative...

Just some housekeeping

1) make sure you have your AMA card....no card...no fly
2) directions are onn the site, but here is the address for the GPS

36709 Royalton Rd.
  Grafton, OH  44044

1/3 mile West of St. Rt. 83
 behind Elegant Wood Products 

Rt. 83 is the last intersection you will hit if you are traveling west on Rt. 82 (Royalton Rd). Shortly after the intersection you are going to see a junk yard on the left and "immediately" after that is a business and you will see a sign that says "elegant hardwoods".

There are two driveways you can enter and ideally you want to go in the first one which is on the east side of the property (just past the junk yard). You will take a road that goes way back to the field.

If you overshoots, go through the front of the business over to the first drive and head back...you will see planes in the air

It's gravel and the speed limit is about 5 mph.... Please drive slow through the business section of the property and don't run over one of the owner's barn cats

I am going to attempt to get there as early as possible but that may be around 10 AM

Nick may be there after 9 AM so we should coordinate on arrivals.

Big thing that will help is that we all make sure we engage with the other club members (most of them are gassers - but all are nice guys) and show them your planes and share the skies

I can tell you that this will be the most action this place has seen in a while, so we want to make sure they say "yes" when we suggest another Stack-Fest at the club.

The club president sent out an e-mail to the club that i penned for him, but it let the group know about Arron coming in and his affiliation with 3DHS. It also let the group know that there were going to be all kinds of 3DHS planes there and some guys there to fly them...

I think it will be a blast and you will enjoy the place

I am getting excited. I am going to shoot for as close to 9 as i can. I have some repairs to do that I will just do at the field. Should be a fun time. I am anxious to see our club vp Chip watch Arron fly. I think he doesn't like me or Keith because p people watch us fly instead of him now.

I think they watch because we are actually flying :-)

Hopefully he will get himself a nice big lightweight 3DHS bird and stop flying those fat-ass yaks :-)

I think we will even see Chip smile tomorrow
