Well, we are about a month away and we already have 23 pilots registered. I think we will top 35 over the next few weeks.

Who's coming?

We are only a week away from the ESL contest on Long Island and things are looking real good.

We have 25 pilots registered and are expecting more.

We are getting the grass cut this week so we should have a great flying site.

We always have a great event, so I hope many of you will join us this year.

Here is the event registration

See you there!

Many people hold off registration till they see the weather report, so I would post it here. Should be perfect conditions.

Weather forecast is for sunshine, virtually no chance of rain and moderate breezes in the 6-10 mph range

We are up to 32 pilots and I expect we will get a few more. That's great!

However I would like to see more Novice pilots. I would like to have at least 4 novice pilots and 6 would be even better.

Experienced pilots, this is a great contest for you to get the new guys involved. Grab a novice and bring 'em along!

Eventhough the ESL registration is closed, sometimes a few kind words to the CD and to Rich V. can get you added.

I am sure a small 'donation' might help too Just kidding.

If you haven't , get these guys a call. i am sure they will be more than amicable. I cannot make any guarantees but it can't hurt to try....
