B, PT, this is what you do when there is a contest. You dont say, yeah, I know, its the biggest DLG party in the world and its in my backyard, but I think I have a hair color appointment that Saturday.

Thanks Gary, will the better part of Team Jensen be coming as well?

I'm not sure what you mean by "the better part of Team Jensen", but Kris and Wesley will be there for sure and if work allows, Kelsey will be there too. Actually, I think Kelsey will just play sick if she has to. I think she's planning to be at all of the Blue Skies events this year. That's all anyone cares about anyway. Nobody cares if I show up. You know what I mean, don't you Jon? Nobody cares if you're there or not, It's just who or what you bring along that anyone cares about. Wait..... What do you bring to the program? Crawdads? Well, that's something, I guess.

PS, there is water onsite at the farms shed. We used it last year for the boil and it seemed just fine. It just a little bit of a drive to that corner of the farm

Also, I vote we move fields this year to where we flew last weekend. If the CD is ok with it, thats my vote, but since he could care less about my vote.......... it will be up to you guys.......

If we do want to do that I would just need to let Trevor know thats our plan and we would probably block that road so we dont have traffic. I have road blocking stuff.

We will welcome all the Jensen's we can get. They all rock!

The east field is nice as it takes the big power lines completely out of play. Parking may be more of an issue there as it's just that skinny little road with grass on both sides. Lift might theoretically be a little better there as well as it is farther from the lake. Right, I'll believe that when I see it . Lift is always a challenge to find at the farm, at least for me.

I'd vote for the east fields too, especially if we can block off the dirt road. There are fewer hazards on the east fields.

What do you locals think about RV's there? I would guess Dave would be the best opinion on that one though.

If we shut down that road we could park @ a 90 degree to the road and pack people in just fine and let the RV's set up with 1st priority. It might even work out that there would be a fresh cut area on that field by then where its just dirt and you could go anywhere you wanted.

I think the lift is always marginally better on that field and if we do get a breeze off the lake it will be WAY better! I dont care what people say about water and thermals forming over water, that West field is death with a lake breeze.

The East fields also take the Swamp thing mostly out of play and the land out areas are friendlier in almost all directions.

The grass was higher quality on the west field. But I like everything else about the east field better.

The actual location is one we can make a few days before the contest. Like Jon says, if part of the east field has been harvested by then we might have a huge parking lot.

Thats sad.....


And the sod quaility varies on how far out harvest is. If they are harvesting soon then its a golf course. Otherwise its like the fields were Saturday. Which is still pretty dang good, its just not PURFECT!

Is it possible to find a bad spot on that field? I doubt it!

Do you mean to tell me there might be better grass than what we flew off of last year?

I'll drive up there just to see it!

Yours, Greg
