Would it be possible to do a list of all the contests by club/area in the first post so it is easy to reference?

March 19th may be the only contest in the NW i will be able to attend before I leave (there is a small chance i'll still be here and have gliders for the April contest). Come out, fly and wish me luck on my new journey!

Of course you may also fly with me at be contests around the country

Looking forward to this season. Trying to put a second DLG together for backup. Just remembering my last season success and crashes; anyone have a wing and/or fuse they wish to sell?

Excellent idea for a thread!

I'm in the process of building my first ever DLG now so Im very interested in attending any up-coming events I can.

You folks can find the AMA District XI R/C Event Schedule on the Marimor clubs web site:

http://www.mar-c.org/sites/default/f...20Schedule.pdf

Im surprised that none of the above events are listed there. Are these non-sanctioned events or just not listed?

Thanks RED, I'll let you know as well once I know the dates for any BC contests.

Some of our PASS contests are to be sanctioned... I don't believe that the sanction forms have been mailed.

Olympia HLG Contests


Thanks Adam for posting these.

We will have AMA sanction for the Oly Contests and some nice improvements at the field that should be nice for HLG.

Build, build, build you guys. We should have a fun season.

James, you better schedule some return visits to the Northwest

Hey Adam,

I plan to come to all the Carnation contests, even though I probably won't make all of them.
