" Five Minutes to Wapner....... "

I will be starting to finalize the matrix Sunday Nov 4 @ 6PM Eastern (Time change weekend)
Please make sure you are signed up in registration form ( see post # 6 ) if your entering the contest.

I will add walk-ups as necessary weekend Nov 10-11 but it makes it alot easier if you sign up now.

Will collect entry fee $ 40 at registration Saturday morning Nov 10th.

Please remember that the T-shirt order was based on the signup sheet with a few extras added for those that register late and spectators. Entry fee covers shirt cost for pilots. Extras available at $ 15

Weather forecast looks great for the weekend Nov 10 -11.
Cool mornings and warm afternoons.
Wide temperature swing from 40 to 70 degrees will spawn some great thermal activity.

I will be attending this event solo, so does anybody want to split the cost of a hotel with me?

Not going solo anymore, twisted swiss1s arm just a little and he decided to attend

Back by Popular Demand ........ the Bobble Heads!

This year these awards will recognize those "special" achievements that happen in any contest.

These "special" achievements may not be know in advance so the CD will award after prelims

You are an artist and a contest director too ;-) Well done! I just love that they even have the regulation contest shirts on and those custom gliders are way cool!

Change of Status

Need to change my status from entrant to worker. My schedule has kept me from flying the DLG. I'll be there all days to assist as necessary.

Nope, not going to accept that,
Get your ass out here next week and fly that thing so you can learn something. This contest was designed to be exciting but low key, it is set up so the experienced pilots can teach the first timers. It is the last contest of the season and the first Points contest of the new year and we need you to make it happen.

This is your first contest as well as many others first contest and if you only fly one round you need to be out there throwing that new glider!
No is not an option my friend ;-)

I'll be available to help you get your plane setup at Biello Park on Monday, Wednesday or Thursday or on Friday at River Green. PM or email me if you can get time off and want my help.

I just got a batch of the light versions of the Twister 3's. Will also most likely have some Top sky gliders for sale and remember the top placing first time competition pilot will win a new Top Sky Disser!

I found good rates at the Days Inn of Norcross. Looking at the map, I'd say its ~10 minutes from the field.
