First pattern contest

I am just about packed and ready to leave for my very first pattern contest. I will be attending the Weak Signals Contest in Monroe, MI this weekend. My Great Planes Venus II is as ready as its going to get and thumbs are not. I have practiced the sequence twice out at the field. Its difficult to get out their with my 2 and 4 year old. I have did some homework. I have the sequence about 90% memorized and with the help of a caller I should make it through the sequence. It will be interesting to see all of the high dollar aircraft that will be flying in the upper classes. Hopefully I will be able to hook up with a mentor for the weekend to coach me through the contest. I am bringing my Extra 300 just in case as a back up. I hope to get a few flights tonight or tomorrow. Just to get used to a new field. Also, I need to figure out what 150 meters is from the flight line. I usually fly in much much closer than that? And then to fly through the sequence at that line. Orientation is going to be totally different. Back to packing.
