CASA DLG 2012 August 18-19

Hey Gang,

Registration for the 2012 Soar Casa DLG contest has been opened.

Register Here

There will be one key difference this year, there will be no registration after August 15, 2012. This will give me enough time to set up the scoring packages and arrange the contest better.

Also please pay by paypal if at all possible.

We will follow the same format as last year. Two classes Sportsman and Expert, with prizes for the first three classes on both days. Also there will be an overall two day contest winner.

Description of our field

I am starting to firm up plans so subscribe to this thread for updates.

Sounds good! We have a gaggle of about half a dozen folks at Gude that fly DLG fairly often now thanks to events like this. Hopefully you guys can bring down some used planes for us bottom feeders.

Will you be running it as two one-day contests, like last year?

Subscribed as well. Have travel for work the proceeding week, so with any luck of no delays, it's penciled in on my calendar.

For those that have not been before, there is a bbq joint very close to the field that we invade on Saturday after flying.

The field is more open with trees more distant than many east coast contests. The surrounding terrain can make some interesting conditions. Nice venue and J does a great job.

The CASA contest name is a little bland, need to spice it up.
