What's going on:

* Open flying from 3pm Thursday thru Sunday
* Limited Motor Run Competion Thursday at 9am thru 3pm. - Sport Sailplane and Class B
* World Championship Soarstar Pylon Races Saturday at 3pm.
* Zagi combat on Saturday (any flying wing eligible)

Just thought of something. How about a simi-orginized Aerobird sonic combat event (any AB with Xport)? Just look how long the ABC thread is. Very popular plane err toy........ Maybe something like a sheet to sign-up (prob would be several on the same ch), first pilot to get (X) number of hits wins or most hits in (X) amount of time. Figure it could be something that could be done in the parkflyer aera. I dunno, just thinking outloud...

I can't think of anything better to do on "MY" day than fly model airplanes.

Just wanted to verify this..
Are the rules that are now listed on the site for the "largest sport plane contest" the rules that will be used?

Yes....those are the rules...

Billy....that's a possibility....I don't see why it would conflict with the regular flying...

I'm a dad of two boys, and I don't think my family will see a problem with me doing what I love on Father's day...the way I see it, SEFF is one time a year, and EVERY day is Father's day!!

Now, what's my pilot #, or, did I beat Ed to the punch, haha?

I will probably ask a moderator to delete some of my posts so folks do not get confused...

Whoo hoo I'm in :-)

Yes, me too, I am almost out of my mints, I keep them in my desk at work.

My wife and I are planning on going, we were there last year and had a great time. My wife got her picture in the paper for the only female Zagi combat pilot, we framed the picture when we got home.

And yes she has kept her Zagi ready for combat again this year
