Usually camping is allowed. Last year the field owner was ok with it, RV's have been allowed in the past, but there's no facilities. Camping there is perfect that time of year.

We allowed camping for the last 2 years with the owner's blessing. Previously he was against it. There is no real camping site per say, we asked campers to stay inside a little opening in the woods, 150 yards from the field or so.

Please, keep your registrations coming!!!
Looks like we will not get to the same record attendance level as last year. But is is still going to be a fun event, and still very competitive. if you have any suggestions or requests about Friday fun-flying activities, post them here!

Thanks, George. It would be cool to have you and Charlie at our field again. And all of the other AZ/CO/UT pilots

Good point, Brady!
If this is your first ever contest, you get a free ride (except we ask for lunch donations and T-shirt cost).
We have one very enthusiastic and talented new pilot in our area - Barry - I am sure he will be on the registration list very soon
If you know somebody who is thinking about attending a contest for the first time, please drag them down here with you. We would love to be there first contest experience.

You can borrow my Aurora's if it makes you feel better Kevin, since I can't fly.

Look again Kevin,
Taboos and my Predator II are Bagged. Zone ?
Not so many bagged wings in competition now I guess. Sort of gone the way of 72 Mhz.

Having to fix a hole in my Blaster 3 (mid-air) tonight or tomorrow. Sure would be easier with a bagged wing.

And yes, there are several bagged planes listed, and I would still have no hesitancy bringing a top quality bagged plane to a contest.

With the plentiful rains we have had around here, the field is in really amazing shape! Lush grass - we can hardly keep up mowing it - like a soft blanket under your feet.
Thermals seem to have multiplied too
