That is. Once my daughters grow up, I will "LIFT" my truck. It will provide shade for my toys and ^^^.
BTW, are we there yet?

Are big electrics allowed in the field? I have a couple of 100" Scale Dimona to maiden if I can finish them before Saturday.

SporTube full of Concepts is checked and my flight boards in ten minutes. I hope the TSA reads and heeds my "please be gentle" notes.

I think I'll try to get to the field this evening.

The third batch of Death by Chocolate brownies just came out of the oven, and Peewee is zonked out in the guest room, so it looks like the Cal Challenge is on!

See you guys (and Nathalie!) tomorrow...

I'm sorry guys, personal life stepped in and got in the way this weekend. I have to stay home and facilitate becoming truly single again. I hope next year will work out. Please allow me to donate my entry fee to the cause. I hope y'all have a great weekend of DLGing.

Charlie


Maybe Jen will take my spot?

Peewee Williams?... Does Paul have a nickname I was not aware of? And just how did he get that nick?

Finchie,
Peewee is a Kiwi pilot out here working on a project in Vegas. I sliced my right index finger making trophies so I am on scoring duty. Hot and windy with soft lift, lots of damage and bloodshed. Really fun and challenging conditions. I wish I was flying! Having a blast though. Wish you were here.

Peewee the Kiwi... that's cool...

Sorry to hear about the finger, Paul. I was wondering where you were on that leaderboard.

My appologies to the real peewee! No wonder team Kiwi brought home the metal!

Paul... Please stay away from sharp objects towards the end of August . It would kill me to have watch the fun all weekend! Hope you're handling it better than i would.

Good luck everyone.
