Delaware DLG contest for September 2012.

Silent Knights Soaring Society presents:

Fall Fling 2012

Saturday and Sunday: September 15th and 16th

The Silent Knights are back with more F3K fun, excitement, fun, camaraderie and fun. Did I forget to mention fun?

Fall Fling 2012 will be located, as always, at our incomparable, immaculately maintained flying field, located in northern Delaware’s White Clay Creek State Park. Everyone who sees our field falls in love with it. Check out the interactive photo taken by our resident photographer extraordinaire John Kirchstein at our annual ESL Thermal Duration contest.

Awards for Expert and Sportsman, as well as ESL points toward your yearly standing. AMA sanctioned and, most importantly, lunch will be provided.

We even found a nice, convenient place for you to stay: a Super 8 Motel that's in the beautiful college town of Newark, Delaware, ten minutes from the field. The rooms are either $80 for a single or $99 for a double . The motel’s phone number is 302-737-5050. Here are directions from motel to the SKSS field.

Dinner at the nearby local brew pub drew a friendly crowd of stellar and not-so-stellar pilots (I was in the not-so-stellar group). Last year’s gang had a most excellent time enjoying good conservation, good food and good adult beverages (well, it is a pub). And… this year I promise not to screw up the reservations!

Fall Fling 2012: it’s just like heaven, only better!

Register with the ESL here.

Directions to the field: Right-click on the blue field and select “Directions to here”.

Questions? Contact the CD, Eric Teder.

Hey there boys and girls. Time's getting short.

Next up is LISF, then CASA and then (ta-da) SKSS!

Mark your calendars for Fall Fling 2012, September 15th and 16th.

We hope to see you all there!

Sorry for off topic but I would be interested in what camera and software your member did the interactive photo.
This is interseting as well.

The Countdown Has Begun!

Time's getting short so clear out your calendar for September 15th and 16th and plan on coming to Newark, Delaware. We have fourteen pilots signed up so far but we can easily double (or even triple!) that. Check us out!

Two weeks left...

...before the SKSS 2012 Fall Fling. Our beautiful flying field is at its best in September, and the local pizza can't be beat. (The local brew pub is pretty darn good, too.)

If you're not yet signed up, head over to the contest registration page today!

Okay gents, I have to say it with more emphasis:
Sign up for Delaware please!

Great field
Great talent present
Great Pizza
No TFR ( this Field was artificially made for Mr. Dupont and has a lifelong TSA waiver)

Don't let the Biggies ( dirt, Greek, pimp and such) sweep the podium and sign up for this great contest!

I would love to be there. the Delaware contest is always one of my favorites. Great bunch of guys and good competition.

Unfortunately, the appendicitis and tumor removal has me blocked from all athletic activity until Sept. 21st when I see the doctor for further evaluation. I just had the staples removed form the incision last Friday and the last tape strip came off yesterday. I am feeling better but it still hurts. Little things like coughing and sneezing are getting more tolerable and I can tolerate the shaking caused by short car rides now. The plan is to go to work Sept 6th and see. I am also doubtful I can make N.C. but I am loooking forward to making these events next year.

Best of luck Eric.

Hey Frank,

You will be missed at this years' Fall Fling. Of all the guys on The Groups I think you have the only valid excuse for not coming.

Take care and heal fast. We are looking forward to seeing you soon.

So pretty....

Alright guys. I know you want this baby for your "insert place of honor here". We only have one so it must go to the best of the best. WHO WILL IT BE?

I only know that if you don't come to Fall Fling 2012 you definitely don't stand a chance of taking this little beauty home with you. We're gonna have some fun with great flying at a beautiful field, camaraderie and dinner at a local brew pub (beer!).

Less than two weeks left so head on over to the ESL website and sign up for some fun.

I am still on the fence for this one. My back is still not ready for DLG launching. I am at the beach all this week with the family, so let me see what I can get accomplished once I return. If I can make a tail set or two for sale, I may just be able to afford coming over. If I do attend, I will need to use the "designated launcher" for each round plz. I know I missed this event last year, and I really like the field and I can't forget the Pizza!!!

Hey Brian,

Hoping to see you this year. I'm sure we can find some throwers for you. Although those tossers you had at CASA were too good. We'll have to get some Sportsman types to throw for you.

And the pizza. Ahhhhhh... we're going to have it again this year and I'd love to tell you how good it is but I don't want to start another smack-down with you-know-who (FN). I'll just say that it's good: really, really good!

Hey Guys,

Just a reminder that the field will be open for practice on Friday the 14th. George B. is coming up from Virginia and it would be a shame if he had to fly all alone. Feel free to drop by and do some flying.

OK Boys,

Gettin down to it now. Long range weather is very good. We're up to 14 pilots (thanks Kevin) but we are looking for a lot more. We're gonna have fun flying, eating and drinking adult beverages. Come on and join us!
