It's a long ride for us Preston, but a really nice field and good folks to fly with. I'd like to go, but I'm not sure of my schedule yet.

I went last year and agree with David that it's a nice field and a good bunch of guys. They've pushed it out a couple weeks later so hopefully we don't have to flirt with snow on the way home like we did last year.

The old Polecat and I made the trip last year. It was challenging conditions but we had a really good time with Dick, Oleg, Jesper, Frank, and the rest of the Wilson crew as well as Randy, Kerry, and some of the other ALES regulars. I am planning to go and hopefully I can talk Denny into going, also. Hope the Boys from Maine can make it, although I realize that is a serious trip for you guys. But it is a 2 day event and the more the merrier!

We hope to see all of the previous attendees and a lot more.

We'll do our best to prevent snow on your way here and back and to make sure you enjoy the sunny warm weather that we will provide during the event!

I have added initial details about the event to the ESL web site. I also activated the registration. We do not have the AMA sanction yet, but I seriously doubt and conflict with this activity anyplace close by. That would be a nice problem.
