To all pilots who plan to attend the Eastern Soaring League contest
this weekend at the Long Island Silent Flyers Field on Long Island,
NY, we look forward to seeing you at the contest on Saturday and
Sunday. However, this year we will not be able to open the field on
Friday for practice.
The FAA has issued a no fly zone notice for the NY area from Wednesday
Sept 22 at 2:30 pm to Friday 9/24 at 8pm. This includes all airspace
around the LISF field and well beyond.
Fortunately this does not impact Saturday or Sunday, so the contest is
definitely on. See you all on Saturday and Sunday.
If you have not registered yet, go to:
Well, another ESL weekend in the books. I think we had 28 pilots on Saturday and 31 on Sunday. What a great group.
The scores should be on the web site in a few days. When they are posted they will be here:
Saturday got kinda windy with winds topping 15 mph. Several planes ended up in the trees, but most were right at the edge of the field. I am not aware of anyone going down deep.
I was the first to go into the trees. It had nothing to do with wind, I just misjudged my location. I thought I was in front of the trees, turning on final for my landing, but when I banked the wing, it disappeared behind the tree. I had one of those "oh %$&* moments. Then it ended up in the tree.
Fortunately I bring a back-up. So I finished the contest. No prize but I got the plane back later that day. Alls well that ends well.
Next we move on to Pennsylvania Oct 9 & 10 for the last ESL TD contest of the season. Two days of fun and flying.
Then we have the last DLG contest on October 16 and 17 in Hagerstown Maryland.
Whether you fly the big planes or the small, I hope you will join us.
