NASA's River Green Field

It's a great place to fly DLG. This is our home field ( Buddy, Walt, Cliff, and Lou, maybe a few other Competition types ) Plus some other non-Competition DLGers, who are members and may join in.

Over the tree line on the West side is the Chattahoochee River. Many years of flying there and never saw anyone go in the river. If you are over those trees you are usually pretty high up.

Honey holes are, as usual, over the tree lines, but fairly close in, which are pretty easy to reach. No bad "Death Valley". Lots of open area. Still I think you'll be making some use of the Gaps in the tree lines. A good bit of variety

Burt Watkins, Eric Brown, and other members of the "Flying Griffins R/C Club" south of Atlanta will be handling the contest (hope I got that right). They hosted the contest for the last two years and did a bang up job.

Camping looks to be OK with very limited and 'rustic' facilities - no power, water and only one outhouse! There are a great many nearby hotels and some local crash pads. More later on the availablility of these.

Friday - Practice and AULD "Trick or Treat" event.
This will be fun. Will run a AULD task for anyone who wants to fly.
Either full size or minis if you have them.
Seperate theme prizes for each type if we have enough participating.
Once score card is calculated - pilots will draw from the 'magic pumpkin' an additional card to modify the final score. Either a treat - adds to score or trick - who knows:
This event is seperate from the contest and will not impact the contest score...it is just fun and lets me test the sound system and equipment.

Looking good Burt,
But I must be a bit slow, what does "This will be a great contest to start te year" mean ?? I assume that "te" is "The", but " start the year" ?? Is it the Chinese new year ?? Or an early start to 2013 ??

Keep up the good work,

walt
