I just sent the e-mail for pre-registration. I suspect two more from my club will be signing up.

This year I'm hoping to show up a day early to spend time in the Air Force museum.

Count me in, at least for some of it.

I start five weeks of travel on August 1st. Home on weekends so I will have to get all those jobs done before the drive to the field! Hmmm, leave here at 7:00am, have two hours of mowing to get done before that. I am going to need some lights!

Looking forward to it

Ryan, the AF museum is just incredible. I don't know if you can get over to the restoration hanger while you are there. If you can they are working on the Memphis Belle.

I just updated the pilot's list to include people I have either recieved emails from (via the link on the website) or from those who spoke of coming here in RC Groups

Phil-I did not recieve an email as you said you sent, that it no big deal, I added your name and you are all set *need to know your freq though). My only concern is if the email link is working? Maybe you or someone can test it again? it works for me...

I have talked to a lot of other folks who I beleive are coming, mostly earlier this year, it's time to start beating the bushes and get some confirmation of this so I can not only update the pilots list, but also enter the names into the scoring program prior to contest day

Later today I will probably email those who came the last couple of years to pulse this process.

In the mean time, if anyone has any intentions of coming, we's love to have you, no obligation, no-advance entry fee, etc, just would like to know who is coming, send an email using the link to the contest page abore or post here in RC Groups with name, and frequency

I'm on CH20 with CH12 as backup. I'll re-send the original email and also go to your link and send a blank entry from there as a test of the link (rather than refilling in the information).

We are now up to 13 pre-registered

I expect several more for sure, mostly the regulars who have come in past years, many are probably still either traveling from the NATS or recovering from them!

I'll keep the site updated daily before I go to bed, posting any new contestents who pre-registered that day

Looking forward to flying with you all!

I added a couple of entries to the pilots list this morning after talking to the flyers at a local "after 6" winch contest in Columbus on Saturday

Anyone else out there thinking about coming?
