Hi Burt,

I'm a NASA member here in Atlanta but do not do the DLG sport. I'll be out Saturday & hopefully Sunday so if you need another timer, helper, gopher, etc I'll get with you Saturday morning to volunteer. A good contest needs plenty of volunteers and I'll be glad to do my share. - Randy Kuntz. (RKuntz1234@aol.com)

Weather is looking good - here is a picture of the next 3 days that shows thermal strength and wind. These maps come from XCSkies which I use for R/C cross country.

I have been away from handlaunch since the javelin throw was king but I am feeling the pull to come back.
Since it is only 8 hours away, you guys are making me consider driving up to the Punkin Chunk to begin catching up on what has changed.
Hopefully I can find a good, used DLG while I'm there.
(Now to convince the wife...) Update: Done!! I had her when I mentioned that there would be T-shirts...

So True and I will have some FireFly's with me. My son and are planning to camp and we have extra room so if anyone wants to hang out on the field Friday or Saturday night feel welcome. We are bringing a 5man tent and a 2man tent. We may just sleep in the back of the van so we deff have room for anyone who wants to stay over.
