BASS - is anybody still alive here?
Where are you web-site and registration links?
Where is your propaganda campaign?
I am thinking about attending this contest too. One of the few remaining options for me in the 8 weeks before WCh. Who else is coming - speak up!

I'm going. I may be in the middle of testing at work, but at least I'll be on the correct side of the bay. Maybe I won't even have to spring for a hotel.

Anybody else planning to come? We need more pilots to make this a worthy contest to drive to!

And now there are twelve.

Come on East Coast. Where is the fire? This was a contest that would have qualified for F3K tour points last year! (twenty plus pilots on the field on Saturday morning) I have already had the pleasure of attending two contests this year with OVER 35 pilots and there have been others around the country. (two more I think)

So fire this up. Other clubs and regions have been growing strong and have had events supporting the F3K team, raised funds for the pilots and so on. We have two young pilots from the area on the team. These guys need some workouts before Worlds.
