Just checked the weather for the coming weekend. Friday, Saturday and Sunday look completely clear. Not a hint of rain showing.

Hope to see you all at the LISF Field. I plan to open the field for practice on Friday around Noon.

Here is the weather report for the contest.

We are looking at clear skies with no rain in the forecast for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Winds during contest hours

Friday - 9 going to 6 for practice
Saturday - 4 going to 9
Sunday - 2 going to 10

Doesn't get much better than that. If you have been waiting for the final weather report to register, there it is.

Looking forward to seeing you at the contest. I will open the field for practice around Noon on Friday.
