One of our flying buddies here in Seattle, Roy Nakano was looking forward to driving down to Poway for the big IHLGF when he was stricken by a stroke April 11th. Instead of flying and hanging out with other pilots... he's been in the hospital and working through physical therapy. He has health insurance through work but it's really not enough to cover all his bills. If you'd like to help out, his friends have started a Go-Fund-Me campaign. You can check it out here:

Thanks everyone for your help.

Are you interested in learning more about R/C hand launch gliders? Well Sunday June 16th the Seattle Area Soaring Society is host a HLG Clinic at 60-Acres park in Redmond, WA. Bring your HLG if you have one and if you don't you'll still likely to learn something.

We've lined up several of the top HLG pilots in the area lined up as instructors, and we'll have break out sessions where pilots of different skill levels well be grouped so you can get help on what's been challenging you in getting to that next level.

fun starts at 9am, lunch will be provided at noon and we'll also have a swap meet at noon, so bring out the stuff you've got that needs a new home.

Best of all, did I mention it's all free:-)

There's more information on our website ( or just drop me an IM.

The Two Lefties Timing VLC's(Very Large Clocks) made their way to the 2012 US F3K team select over Labor Day weekend. Adrian Dybwad's F3K Master software was used to drive them, and despite the wind and rain, they performed flawlessly!

The clocks are off to the East Coast HLG Festival in North Carolina. PM me if you'd like to see the clocks at your next contest.

So, the Two Lefties Timing LED Clocks had their first big outing at The Bruce June 30-July 1 in Shelbyville KY. Everything went well, although the extreme 105 degree F heat was a little too much and the one clock had to be moved under a tent. Keep an eye out for the clocks at the Nats next week in Muncie IN, and then at the F3K Team Select in Denver, CO over Labor Day weekend!
7:29 at night...Yeah, its 93.2 F!

That's me, doing something I love... Hosting HLG contests.

On display are some of the clocks we're preparing for this season's contests. If all goes as planned, you should see these at the Bruce this summer.
