Doesn't matter to me if George comes No matter how many pilots are on the roster, last place is still last place Don't get too comfortable, though, because one day I WILL be able to make you guys sweat

And I'm in favor of leaving the date where it is. Any other weekend will likely be a challenge for me.

launch height can't fix stupid
So who over there still needs points towards being qualified for the TS? We have 2 guys over here currently with a half point (me being one of them) but the other guy may not be able to attend our next contest.

I think the main people point hungry are Russ & I. I have 1/2 a point. Russ has 0. I am worried as BSOC is on the schedule but I am juggling a Scout commitment at that time as well and not sure which pull will win. Either way, it is what it is.

PS, Brandon, I have no fear that you will be making a huge jump once you get a contest plane. Glad to see you have kept the DLG fire going on a shoestring, which aint easy! Get a good job at Autoliv and work a DLG into the compensation package......

We have someone from out of state wanting to come and would like to know if camping at the sod farm will be allowed? He would have a very large motor home. What say you Jon L?

Bring it down. I will let Trevor know we will have a temporary cabin onsite!

Oh, wait, if its anyone who’s name rhymes with FroLo or is named after a summer month of the year. Then NO, NO RV's are allowed! Anyone who meets the above criteria actually falls under a state wide quarantine and will not be allowed in the state that entire month!

But for anyone else, I will warmly welcome them to our little slice of Heaven.

Also, if there is someone lurking here who would come if they had a place to crash, let us know. I have a full basement w/ private bath etc that I would be more than happy to let someone crash in. Its not 4 stars, but its a bed and bath with a roof. That would get the trip down to the cost of gas and save lodging issues. I am 14 minutes from the field and Finch is 13.7 minutes.

Attached is a picture of the Utah Open trophy. One good (and/or lucky) soul will win this hunk of genuine Utah box elder burl! I intend for this to be a traveling trophy with the winner keeping it for the year he/she wins. The winner on the 26th will write his name and the year on the back of the trophy. Next year's winner will then write his below that... and so on. (in the unlikely event that Lemon wins, I'll have a spelling "cheat sheet" written up for him )

You don't want to miss this contest!
