2012 LSF/AMA ALES Championship


Well, I figured I would start this for all to add. I am really looking forward to flying the event as a very new experience vs. traditional TD at Muncie. It is about my favorite places in the world to fly at cause it is a non discrimatory flying sight cause I have seen it eat everybodies lunch at least once, even Joe Wurts. No tree lines, no hills, the landing circles will be fast (like supersonic as dry as it is), and Texas Roadhouse Fillets. The other thing for me is that as of Monday, the 6th of August, 2012, I will officially not be of any official standing with the Soaring Nats. I look so farward to not being anything, but a competitor flying ALES, I cannot wait!

Look forward to meeting some folks that I have read about and known through RCG and the old friends that are watching me having to relearn soaring with a complete different mindset and priorities to be exploited. See ya there!

I will be there with an assortment of planes from Radian to Smooth Genie Pro. Since I haven't seen the names of the people registered for the event, maybe everyone who has signed up could post here, so that we know who is flying.

I will fly the Supra and a Super AVA as usual. In 1/2A I will use the Electron.

I will be the CD for "B" so "Lil Smurf" can fly.

I am watching to see if a certain new "contender's" name shows up on the list. He's been pretty outspoken in his views of ALES(and every other soaring topic!) and it is time for him to "step up to the plate"

Walt, you must be buddies with Tiger I am guessing, you know, that Dubai thing. But just to make it good, I am good for a few bucks and a rollaway at the HIE. And just think, you will be even smarter for staying there!

Ed, your going to have to wait until the Polecat comes around again next year. My parole officer only lets me travel out of the state once a year.

Well be that way Walt, heck, at least Tiger takes the bait. Hopefully next year I will be in Carlisle.

Wanted to fly ALES, but with F3J between Unlimited and ALES I could not afford the time. Maybe next year. Would have been fun beating you high end e-glider guys with a Radian that is full of tape and glue.
