Count me in. I will forward to all the "locals" as well as others that might be interested. Looking forward to flying in some nice weather.

NASA DLG Flyers will Attend Pukin Chunk in Force

Burt

NASA has 15-20 DLG flyers and we will pull out the stops to publicize and achieve maximum participation at the October 23rd event.

All of us hope this initial 'trial run' proves to be the first in a regular annual event that will grow to a 2-3 day sanctioned contest.

Dave,

It's about 45 minutes off of the interstate (Exit 205 Hwy 16). About 3 hours from the Fla/Ga state line to exit 205.

Count me in for sure. This site is fantastic for DLG, and the weather this time of year should be very comfortable.

I am very interested in this. Is this site a place where DLGs are flown regularly?

There are a few of us that fly at a nearby private field (about a mile away), but I don't think there are many members that fly DLG at this field.

I hope this event will increase DLG interest on south side. There are many wet/electric flyers who show interest. Hope this contest will get them hooked as I have become!
