If there is sufficient interest, we certainly can do a Pro-Am contest on Friday. I can setup a sign-up page for that. Or maybe we can do it right on the field.

Made a lot of hay yesterday - maybe that's why the thermals kept popping all afternoon. After we got done mowing the field we did a bunch of AULD rounds - and it was almost too easy.
Actually it was a lot of fun and a nice reward for mowing - it's been raining so consistently, the grass just keeps growing.

If a more formal Pro-Am contest is setup for Friday, I'm highly considering taking the day off work and coming down for it, since I can't fly the main event.

I don't know about the Pro's but I'll be there as an Am. Just let me know what time to arrive.

Martin and Brady, thanks for cutting the grass again!
The field will be in prime condition this year. The grass is really thick from all the rains we had lately.

We are at 31 pilots and still need more!
So sign up now!

If we do run a Pro-Am event, it will be Friday afternoon. I doubt it will have enough attendance to justify a day off work and 8-10 hours of driving. But you are more than welcome to attend!!!

Oleg,

I'm driving to Wilmington anyway that weekend, so no extra driving, just leaving a bit earlier. Even if 8-10 pilots fly the Pro-Am it will still be good for me to keep my skills level at least

Just registered for the contest. Looking for two other sportsmen to join my team, "Cannon Fodder". (That sounded a little better than my alternate team name, "Bottom Feeders".)

I've been trying to get to Wilson for the past three years, but fate has conspired against me every time. Hope to break the curse this year!
