Got the "kitchen pass" and would like to see if anyone wants to share a ride and a room before I go any further.

You know I'm good with that! I was just getting ready to post an email in DESS to see if anyone else was planning to go down. Still need to double check with the wife, if she wants to go we're going to fly down. How far is the field from ATL?

Field is on NE side of ATL outside I-285
About 20 miles from airport. See post # 5

I am working with t-shirt vendor. Please sign up and make sure your t-shirt size is correct. Those that want shirts but can't come to contest send me a PM and I'll make sure you get one. Target price $22 - $25 each Black and white logo on orange shirt

Too bad I don't trust the TSA! (Kind of in denial about the end of the season up here.)

Looks like the pilot list is filling in nicely with 20 pilots!
Please make sure you have indicated t-shirt size cause we will be ordering soon.
Looks like a great contest shaping up and the weather should be good.

Good luck to all in Wilson NC in October

Maybe we could get a bobble head, holding a tranny, with the spring bent so the head is always looking up & flopping around.

Motel close to NASA field


One possible motel about 4 miles from NASA field is:

Days Inn and Suites Norcross Atlanta NE Peachtree Ind Blvd
5385 Peachtree Industrial Blvd, Peachtree Ind/Medlock Bridge, Norcross, GA 30092 US
Phone:1-770-416-9021


This is not my endorsement. I just found it on the internet.
