Here's what you'll find when you arrive at the field.
We will be there around 4:00 Thursday afternoon to set up tents, so field will be open then.

Gavin just messaged me that we will probably be hating life in about 24 hours. I tend to agree.

The "team Ohio" train leaves here around 5am tomorrow... See everyone Friday.

I won't name names, but it looks like somebody is bringing some cooler air with them. Too bad, it was 83 yesterday. Wind forecast look good, and I don't think we'll need raincoats this year.

Under way... about 2 hours into the trip and we still see snow. I'm guessing the next two hours get us out of snowcover and on to greener pastures.

Only 13 more hours of driving

BTW, the cold air told me that it's not following us, so I'm not sure who's bringing it south. Phil and Austin would be my next guess. Maybe Jonas brought it from Sweden?

Wow Tom pretty quick to throw us under the bus. It's almost 60 degrees here and I see no snow. We have had some pretty killer thermal activity lately so I will try and bring those along. 4 hours till lift off better finish plane #2. See you all soon.

I see 15mph winds on Saturday, 8mph on Sunday. Bring your ballast for Saturday at least.

Low temp 33F on Sunday morning... combined with 7-8mph wind it will be chilly.
Where is this contest again? in sunny Florida?..

We have been in shorts for the last month. Mother Nature knows when this contest is being held every year.
I had to dig a jacket out of the closet and dust it off. Got to find a wool cap somewhere.

40" mini event


Dave,

I just finished a plane for the mini event. It seems to glide OK. We'll see what happens when I throw it. Count me in if the event will be after lunch on Fri.

Brady and I are leaving Wilson about 5PM tonight and plan to stop someplace late this evening.

I wish everyone safe travels and a great contest.

I also wish I could be there, but I am swamped with work, no chance.

Best,
