Thanks to the many people that helped me after my left leg collapsed on a launch in the 5th round on Saturday. For the rest of the weekend, every time I started to get out of my chair to get something someone would volunteer to get it for me.

Funny...I had been going to therapy for nerve problems in my right leg and it was my left leg that collapsed on me. I'm determined to get everything working correctly again before the next DLG contest.

I missed a couple of contests this year and it really felt good to see all my DLG friends again!! Maybe we should do this again next year!

Jason and I would like to thank all of you for welcoming us into your circle, we got lot's of good pointers and help from anyone we asked. I'm bad at remebering names, but thanks to our neighbours in the pits for putting a towel on my Blaster after it was blown of the table.
Just a great bunch, we had a blast. During the 2 days I really improved my launch , so Jason watch out! Hope to see you for the next event!

I had a geat time and learned so much at this contest, it was a thrill to see some of the best pilots in action and to be able to pick up some tips from them. Big thanks to Atlanta Hobby for sponsoring the rookie award, Cliff I will be building the topsky 2.0 disser right away. I plan to get a ton of flying in before february and hope to make the trip to the San Felasco event. Again big thanks to everyone.
Jason

When leaving the field I found a red switch jack that has a deans pin connector on it. If it is yours send me your address so I can sent it to you.

What a great time! I always enjoy getting together with all my DLG friends. Thanks to Burt, Nathan, Cliff and the whole NASA club for a great weekend. I really appreciate the advice Nathan, Jeff, and Bruce gave me as callers. Even though I placed horribly, I am hooked! Hopefully, I can do better this Friday at the Tangerine contest in Ocala. Congratulations to Jeff, Bruce and Frank for a superb performance. Sorry, Nathan I think I handicapped you by timing for you most of the weekend. But you did a great job nonetheless.

Mike

Second T-shirt order placed. Due to Thanksgiving holiday, they won't be done until Nov 29th.
These are for local folks that are due them.

Cliff @ Atlanta Hobby has all the Extras. You can get an extra shirt if you like by calling him.
Got some 3XL (bell bottom) shirts for us gravitationally challenged figures
