Geez its cold out. I had to put on a light sweater when I went out to fly this morning.

Thankfully, it was a toasty 52 by noon.

Miss flying with you Utah boys.

JonF - I really like your video of the contest. I have watched it several time and the more I watch it the more I enjoy it. Excellent job.

Local Sale - ELF DLG

Need funds for my son's new plane... Not DLG I thought I'd start with something a little bouncier.

Wow, J, that sold fast. All of 5 minutes!

Hey everyone, help me pick the best dates for Utah Red Rock F3K Challenge 2013 in St. George. I just found out the date I was originally considering (Mar 30-31) is Easter weekend. Seems like every weekend around that time has something. We did the GC weekend last year:

March 23-24 (middle of spring break)
March 30-31 (Easter)
April 6-7 (General Conference)

I'm open to other dates as well, but we don't want it too early (weather) or too late (close to IHLGF at end of April).

We could also consider breaking the tradition of Saturday/Sunday and do a Friday/Saturday instead, IF pilots would still come. Consider that some guys will get a company holiday on Friday the 29th, and could still be home for Easter Sunday if we did it that weekend. Just thinkin' out loud...

Please voice your opinions.

I'd vote for 3/23 weekend with 4/6 as backup. Easter is definately out.

If it were a Friday-Saturday I'd be MUCH more likely to go. My spring break is probably not going to work, though. And I'd really rather it not be on General Conference weekend. Other than that I think I can work out a way to make a Fri-Sat contest.

I think the guys in CO/NM/AZ/CA and anywhere else aught to be polled to see how a Fri/Sat contest would affect their attendance. I'm going to show up no matter what, but a Fri/Sat contest in St. George means I have to take an extra day of vacation, but the farther away you are from the contest the less of an impact it has. i.e. if there was a contest on Fri/Sat in California it would mean the same total number of vacation days (Thur and Fri) for me to attend as a Sat/Sun one (Fri and Mon).

Yep, lets see what gets the best attendance, but if there is a way we could pull it off on a Friday Saturday, I would get you a sticker! Who knows, people may love the idea of a Friday Saturday and since the longest drive for probably anyone would be 6 or so hours it may not matter. Well except for our forgotten son Franc.........

And maybe the closeness means people like the idea less and maybe consider FRI SAT for BSOLOUT. Let the kids decide.

Yes, I'm hoping the out-of-staters will chime in here. I know a lot of them monitor our thread.
