Fresno looks like the airport to fly into for me, so that's what I'm going to do. Thanks Paul & Tom for the offers of a ride.

Which hotel does everyone prefer?

I'm signed up for the Comfort Inn and Suites on Airport Dr. It is an easy drive to the site. But its a small town so most are pretty close.

I am camping on the field. Let me know if you want to do that same. We may be able to wrangle up a sleeping bag and tent for you.

They need every chance to see stars outside of LA. When I was in Eloy, I wished they were there just to see those stars that even I almost forgot how bright they actually are.

OK I Just updated the registered pilots list. We will keep registration open until a week before the contest, but if you want a t-shirt, you have to be registered before this coming sunday

We have some folks that have said they are coming that haven't signed up. Please do so as it is important that we get a good idea who is coming.

Thanks guys!

Hi Lex,

I won't know until May 20th. The odds are pretty slim but any chance of holding a spot open just in case?

FYI, the tshirt order will be closed out NEXT SUNDAY, May 13th. You can still submit shirt orders on the registration page. Sorry for the confusion.

Be sure to check the Heavens Above website for predicted ISS & Iridium satellite passings just before you go. They are fun to find & easy to see!

Or contact a local astronomy club & see if they will do a star party for everyone on one of the nights.

Cool people and I really like that field!
If I make it... how about some after-hours 3M flying?

I will have a winch with me as well as a zip start and a 3m ship, sounds like fun. I will also be camping on field. See you all then
