Awesome job for everyone Bruce!

Clocks!


And more exciting news......
Adam Red Weston and I have been working on a timing clock system for F3K events for quite a while now. Mostly it is Adam doing the work and programming and me telling him how to do it :-) Anyway we now have working window clocks ready for my contest! Adam has worked it out by putting queues in our standard timing files that will tell the clocks to start a countdown for prep time and window time. Our goal for this system it so make it available for any CD or club to rent for their event. The team selection event team already has them reserved for Colorado.

So does this mean in poker now we can just call "whatever the big billboard with numbers on it says!" as a time?

Nudge nudge Bruce, "Random Dude" wasn't too impressed with your captions...

And since he did some of the wiring and all of the welding I think we should formally introduce Rick Jay to the gang... Thanks for your help Rick!!! You're the best!

Oh, and chances are getting better that I will be in attendance in person to make sure the clocks blink out just at the wrong time in the middle of poker round in the finals. RED

Hehehe!

Guys these clocks are awesome, you will all be impressed. Far way, direct sun, still easy to read. The wiring needs some "clean up" but that's getting fixed.

Random Dude.

I thought that would draw you guys out :-) Now we gotta get Rick on the roster just in case the welds or wires fail we can watch the both of you scratch your heads.

Just a heads up, I have 3 more spots left and will close registration May 31. If you have a friend that is on the fence you best give him a nudge. You can view who is coming here: www.thebrucef3k.com If you click the register button you can see who is partnered up for the team competition. There are still a lot of non paired pilots so if you wanna team up with someone just shoot me an e-mail or PM.

Who is coming to play? My tickets are bought!

I even flew the DLG some this afternoon, and it is packed for a trip to the field tomorrow. Thats already more than I did before the International. I am gunning for these flyoffs.

Hey Thomas Cooke, I got a large box from you delivered to the Thermal Farm yesterday. I hope it is full of MKS goodies for me to give away.

Hey Bruce,
Can't take credit for the entire box.
Bob at SoaringUSA.com threw some goodies in there too!

I am real excited to be able to be back this year as I had a ton of fun in 2010!
Counting down the days.
Cheers,
Thomas
