Just signed up,
Now I need to put the Aileron horns and a Blade on the wing from my new Blaster 3 kit. I will put the new wing on my old B3 Fuse. Just in case I don't get the new Fuselage ready in time.

Looking forward to flying with all you guys again.

Buddy's signing up too.

Very glad to hear that Roos brothers are coming. We have been missing you at several events, Walt and Buddy.

We are at 35 pilots and still getting more!

camping

I just signed up, and am driving a trailer down. Any suggestions as to good campgrounds close by, not too expensive? Also, I don't know the criteria for expert vs sportsman. I'm 66, have flown a few contests, but am not a threat to win anything.

Jonathan,
Welcome, there's a campground about 2 miles from the field http://www.travelerscampground.com/
I always figured if you've won sportsman at a decent sized contest you are now an expert, otherwize it's up to you.

Looks like we're up to 39 pilots, who's gonna make it 40?

Shirt order needs to go in on Friday, if you are particular about size you should go ahead and register.

As usual we will cut off entries a week before (Feb. 9th) to give us a chance to set up the matrix and sound track. You've been warned!

I'm calling you out on that one Gerald... Jet Blue flight 223 departing Friday morning and returning on 226 on Sunday evening ... $175

You're right though... other airlines are all over $300

If it wasn't an extra 3 hours on both sides of the trip, Gavin and I would pick you up.

I was seeing prices more like 400+, and no tickets available from Jet Blue for flights in that time range. I'll look again.

Gerald

PS - Yep, all the outbound DC area Jet Blue flights are listed as sold out for Friday.

I am tempted to come, but it will be hard:

If I leave work Friday evening, and it is a 12h drive, it will get tight getting down there in time. When does the pilot's meeting start?

Funny. I had the wrong weekend on my calendar. I was checking the 22nd-24th.

Oops.
