Okay... 2.4 and Channel 14 for me. (If I get off my butt, all my planes might be on 2.4 by the event.) Unless someone has a better idea, I'll plan to camp up at the site in my Scamp trailer. 'hope others will be camping too!

This is always just before my anniversary, so it could be bad form for me to show up, but in case it works out I'll be on 22, 25, and 2.4. I love flying that site. About that silky smooth road from the pavement; aren't you exaggerating just a bit Rene?

bring your wife, and yes the road is silky smooth, but then I'm a trained promoter.

Silky smooth and steep as anything for about 200 yds! (At least almost too steep for my travel trailer last year.)
