Hi Norm.
You are more than welcome to ride with me to the contest and back. I even have a spare tx and a LightHawk you are welcome to use if we can talk you into flying with us.
I live close to the school yard where you and I met that time and hope to hit the road around 6:00 am. PM me for my address or to arrange a meeting place if you are interested.

If you would rather arrive later or return earlier, there is a link to the contest site location on page 14, post #163 in this thread.

We would be happy to have you join us and I know you would have a good time. Great group to spend the day with!

Current contest info for Olympia hlg Contest this weekend:

July 14 in Olympia is one. AMA sanctioned contest, first contest in the NW for team selection for the next team cycle.

No entry fee for junior flyers. If you have a junior and want them to go to the Colorado team selection in September for the USA F3K team this cycle (NEXT YEAR) they apparently have until september to attend a sanctioned contest. They can then go to Colorado. Junior entries are apparently very low and this is an outstanding opportunity for a junior!

Tasks

Round 1 Five 2:00
Round 2 Ladder
Round 3 Three 3:20
Round 4 1, 2, 3, 4 any order
Round 5 Poker
Round 6 Last 3 flights
Round 7 All up
Round 8 Poker

We may not have time for Round 8, we could move it up earlier. Vote at the pilots meeting. Pilots meeting at 9:00, intend to start at 9:30. Red, if you are coming, could you haul the clocks down?

Lunch: Russ's famous Polish Dogs, chips, etc., WATERMELON, and softdrinks and water.

We'll sort out any frequency conflicts that might arise at registration.

See you then.

July 28th Party Invitation


Thanks Gary, but family is in town this weekend and we'll be busy up in Seattle.

I do want to let everyone know that we (Rebekah, Eddy, and I) are inviting everyone out to Carnation July 28th for a Fun-Fly to celebrate what else, but RED turning 40!

We'll start flying in the morning... Fly what you bring (within Carnation Farm rules - sailplanes and electric assisted sailplanes) we may even have a "W" word set up. Then at 4pm we'll have cake and ice cream followed by BBQ if you'd like to stick around... And some of us may even be camping that night (assuming the skeeters don't carry us off).

You'll need a guest code so pm or email me (red@tgworks.com) if you aren't SASS... And even if you are a member, we'd like to get a rough count of who's in.

Gary,

Add Burton and Lawrence to the list, we are car pooling together.

Come one Dave, work is over rated!
