Last Saturday at AD we started flying at 12:30 with a light wind which was cold. But, by 1:30 or 2:00 it was really nice.

Welcome Ken and Steve.

Merry Christmas All! Hope this white stuff disappears before Saturday.

If anyone is interested in how the tasks were chosen, I used Random.org and assigned a number value to all the tasks listed in F3K Score. I went through several iterations so that we didn't have to do all 3 variants of AULD or Last Flight.

Hey JONBOY...it's a long, complicated story, but I'll be giving the string to my son that lives by you when they come for dinner today.

Hope you are having a great Christmas!

Who is bringing Hot Chocolate for Saturday?????

How much snow is at Barnes now???? Looks like there will be much more by Saturday!!!! SWEET!!!!!!

Will be a contest where if you dont hand catch it, you will be trying to find your plane under the snow!!!! And then you will have to de ice her before you throw again!

Was it WSU where someone landed and the entire plane disappeared last year???? Thats funny.

When I left the gym an hour ago there was at least an inch of new stuff at Barnes. It has been steadily coming down since then.

Yes, I think everyone parks on the west side of the field.

I recommend shovels, snow blowers, snow shoes and cross-country skies.

I'll likely be too cold and numb to care about the potential extra 10 seconds and won't fly anywhere but right over the field .

Also, I'm thinking about selling my GoPro Hero2 ($175) if anyone here's interested...

I don't have a 3 yet... but I keep hearing voices in my head telling me I need one. And I always listen to the voices in my head, they never stear me wrong... except for that time in Tijuana (but they were speaking spanish). I just don't think I need two GoPro cameras.

At some point, it would be nice if you started listening to the voices that other people can hear as well! You know, the ones coming out of people with physical bodies and all......

You know, a voice that sounds like this. "Yo Finch, come back, there is nothin but BFT's over there, come back now................"

Vuelve a Casa ahora!!!! Yeah its ugly, but its close!!!!!
