How much difference a year makes, Kyle can post to groups from another country now. Proud of you Mr Paulson unless it is Kyler that is helping you.

Kyle, for the wind direction, yes...but for interference with the serious power lines over the road, not so much...

I guess we can avoid them and all, like we avoided the light poles in China, but if there's a setup where we don't have to, then it might be better...hence opening the conversation about it...

It depends on which road you talk about. If it is the dirt road then I think it is good (course perpendicular to the power lines). I also suspect that direction may not be that bad for wind direction either.

TK is correct..... Winches parallel to the dirt road. Tim, this should also take the power lines out of play. Remember bases A and B are parallel to winches.

Glauco, first I would like you to keep your mouth shut when you're saying things like that. I know you can do that.

Second, is that when we were in China I had a droid and droid sucks! Mostly because I'm too stupid to use it. Now I have an iPhone and I am a very happy man. I am even writing all this by voice with the comas the quotation marks! Everything!

We are here in Rügen now. Our bags showed up one day late but that gave us time to spend in Hamburg to check it out. It was pretty cool. Today in Rügen it is raining and will likely be raining tomorrow too. (Notice the word Rügen has the two little dots above the U) That was done with voice text automatically! How do you like that Glauco? SYM!

Dear Kyle, I'm impressed by your ability to put the little dots on Rügen. I hope you, Kyler and the rest of the team show the same dexterity while flying, good luck.

Ps. Sorry for the off topic, Kyle made me do it.

So, back on topic...

Kyle, yes, winch lines parallel to the dirt road does good for the course, but the field is now overgrown with large tumbleweed bushes that are knee high or higher, so we cannot extend the winch lines out into it unless we clear it...

You've been so busy with that F stuff that you haven't been out to see...

Hurry up and win the trophy and then come back and do some B...

Hi to all,

Okay, this is the final list of pilots now registered for the F3b Team Select event:

Kyle Paulson
David Klein
Mike Lachowski
Tim Traver
Paul Sherman
Tom Kiesling
Mike Smith
Don Scegiel
Reto Fiolka
Paul Crittendon
Darrel Zaballos
and Thomas Cooke

We still need volunteers to help us conduct this event, as F3B requires quite a few people to run the tasks. If you can help us out on any of the 3 days we are running this event, we would really appreciate it!

Thanks!
Mike Lee
