New Years Day Postal Woody Contest

To all world wide it is time to get ready for the new year.
So on that note I will be holding the New Years Day Postal Contest!
The contest will be here on this thread on RC Groups. Please spread the word to all your club friends!

Here are the guide lines that we all should follow!

Have fun!
Unlimited flights to get to the goal Longest thermal flight wins!
In the spirit of the old days the plane needs to be constructed of WOOD!
The span can be any size.
Glass fuse OK.
"Sniffers" Don't need one!
Only one flight counts!
Please no slope flights

The winner gets a trophy! It will be small!

Added Note: If there is a tie for the longest flight of the day - the flight made at lowest temperature wins.
The flying site with the lowest temperature of the day deserves a mention as well.

Please post here to sign in.

Name: Tag name is fine

End of the day please repost with this info!

Name: Tag name is fine
Real name: Optional
City or town:

Please have fun and fly save!
For those that fly in the colder region please stay warm.

Note! Sign up for this contest will close 12-31-09 Midnight your time!
Posting flight times will close 1-1-10 5:00 PM PST CA time.
This will give our friends in HI to get there flights in if any.

Your CD

I believe it doesn't fit the "Woody" classification, as it has a molded D Tube wing.

I may have to re-think my choice of planes then.

Thanks Phil.
