Here it is.

What Jose is referring to is a sheet I got at another contest that has listed all the times in 10 second intervals from 1 min on up. It makes converting a stopwatch to seconds very easy. Just look up the closest time without going over and add the ones place from the seconds and that's it.

Conversion Sheet

Frank,

When you print out the Task score sheets you should cut & paste this onto the bottom of everyone's sheet.

you were reading my mind..... I hope I remember when I make up the sheets. The other problem is that I will list 10 - 11 rounds on the sheet. There just may not be room for it.

I think I will have to make the sheet 2 sided with some rounds on each side.

Let's see how it turns out.

Thanks for the suggestion Phil.

It has been asked of me to put out on the Ether if there is interest in getting pizza and beverages for AFTER Sat. contest to be eaten at the field.

Anyone interested?? Post here or send me an email(fjn2bmd@hotmail.com) if you think it is a good idea. If there is interest by Thursday, I will indicate what has been decided and make accomodations to get the food etc.

Frank, I have a TD contest the following weekend so I was thinking of bringing my winch and stuff, I would love to setup after the DLG contest and I stay for the pizza party... Could you ask Paul Bell if he would like to bring his big plane too?

Thanks

Jose

Too bad my 3 meter BOT isn't done. (Okay I'm a very slow builder) Your winch would probably just break it anyway.

Pizza party on Sat after 11 rounds is a great idea !!! Count me in. Frank, we could do 12 rounds. I'll bring a 3 M floater too. Doug, a BOT can take a winch, even with stock wing. You just have to tap it up. I mean the kit built wing, not the ARF. This weekend's gonna be toooooo much fun. I can't wait.

Guys, if you want to winch after throwing all day, I can bring a club winch and retriver. Jose if you have yours too then we are sure to be able to get some planes into the sky. Maybe even some one on one challenges.

I did not finish my hand launch so I won't be flying in the contest but I will be there helping all day both days. Winching after the hand launch would be great! Sunset is around 8, so we should get in a good 3 hours of winch flying on Saturday.

Vulture, if you want to hi-start your BOT, bring your plane and your hi-start. Depending on how the wind is blowing we might have room for a HS and a winch, especialy if we set up the retriver on the winch. But that is up to Frank. He is the big field boss that day.

everyone can fly whatever they want after the hand launch...


EXCEPT ED

We've just cleared the skies for some late day fun!

After 10 + rounds, who is going to have an arm and shoulder left to want to keep throwing a plane anyway!!!!

OK Ed, you can fly too (there goes the clearance)
