March 19th may be the only contest in the NW i will be able to attend before I leave (there is a small chance i'll still be here and have gliders for the April contest). Come out, fly and wish me luck on my new journey!
Of course you may also fly with me at be contests around the country

Excellent idea for a thread!
I'm in the process of building my first ever DLG now so Im very interested in attending any up-coming events I can.
You folks can find the AMA District XI R/C Event Schedule on the Marimor clubs web site:
Im surprised that none of the above events are listed there. Are these non-sanctioned events or just not listed?

Thanks Adam for posting these.
We will have AMA sanction for the Oly Contests and some nice improvements at the field that should be nice for HLG.
Build, build, build you guys. We should have a fun season.
James, you better schedule some return visits to the Northwest
