Gavin and Tom, I'm hoping one (or both) of you can find 10 minutes to fly my new Blaster to provide feedback on its setup.

You're safe from the "Gavin launch", peg is on the wrong side.

Sweet Ryan. This contest will be a good time. I still have pictures of the buffet on my phone. If I took pictures of food, you know it was impressive.

For those of you from out of town with families, one of the coolest family trips on the planet is only about 20 minutes from the field. It's the Dayton Air Force Museum, with great kids food, IMAX theater, and hundreds of airplanes on display indoors with exhibits, shows, learning events, etc. Admission is.... FREE!

I take my three and five year old there almost every time we're within driving distance just to eat hotdogs and stroll through a hangar full of really cool stuff.

I know I'm a week early but I'm packed up and ready to go. Leaving for Muncie Saturday morning for the Scale Aerobatic NATS. Will make the drive to Dayton on Friday. See you guys then.

Gavin - You sure that place is big enough for a 40%??

Just to increase awareness to other folks in the midwest of the SOAR club's upcoming F3K contest near Chicago:

Also, I have an Ironworks Epona RTF (72MHz) that I'm looking to sell. All D47's, FMA Encore, 250mAh NiMH. If anyone is interested I can bring it along this weekend. $325.

You seemed to have found the address of Twin Towers Area Park
I have it similarly (without the "W" in front, and without the "-" in the street name

Twin Towers Area Park
501 Yellow Springs Fairfield Rd
Fairborn, OH 45387

However, my Garmin GPS doesn't like all of that though, seems it doesn't know that address, and I believe I have the latest Garmin maps update. I had to find it by searching for "Points of Interest" near Fairborn, OH and entering "Twin Towers Area Park", then all was well. Must be a quirk within the maps

To make things a bit more confusing, Google seems to know the place as:
Twin Towers County Park, not Twin Towers Area Park

But, if all else fails, enter the GPS coordinats of 39.818821,-83.948593

Anywho, thanks for pointing out the need for GPS info! I'll put this info on the directions to the field on the DARTS website when I get a moment

Bruce,

What frequency are you on?

As far as I know, I did not get an email for pre-registration, only your posts here saying you are coming.

I need your frequency prior to Thursday noon so I can make the flight groups and print out score cards. Have a nice trip!
