You know you're in Master's Class now, right? You edged me out by one point.

Anyone interested in practicing on Friday? If so, I could probably get to the field around noon. I have a serviceable winch, turnaround, and battery, but no retriever.

Electric on both days I assume? I'm going to try at least one day, depending on work.

I'm pretty sure we'll have more participants than just the ones on the list. Mike Gardner seems to imply in this post that "Sensi Jody and Master Jeff" will be there, but it's uncertain whether Grasshopper Dillon will make it.

So again, is anyone interested in some practice at the Christmas field on Friday?

Mike, I haven't talked to Jody or Jeff about FSS #1. I hope they're going to be there as I need to pick up my syllabus for the "Art of Thermaling, Year 3"
