I'm not as bad as they say.

Schedule, Main Event Task List and Matrix.

Main event.
Task List, start list and flight matrix.
4 Heats, 9 rounds Saturday, 5 rounds Sunday, no flyoffs.
Sportsman, Novice and Medicare class all fly together, 3 rounds of experts.
Sportsmen fly heat D in the morning, fly two rounds back to back mid day, then fly Heat A in the afternoon.
This gives the "challenging" air to the experts.
Yes, you are reading it right there is no 5x2, superseded by 3x200, and there is no little ladder, superseded by big ladder.

Edit: Sportsman/Novice/Medicare will fly together in one heat. However Medicare will be scored against themselves only.
Novice & Sportsman will be scored as one group.

My daughter won't be competing. We didn't get enough practice in and she seems to be losing interest after being in the very hot outdoors (76F) for 20 minutes trying to practice. lol. This is my other younger daughter. Kira my oldest seems to only be interested in attending instead of competing still too.

I have decided to go ahead and fly the 1M anyway with my TopSky mini even if I don't upgrade to a better 1M. Count me in.

EDIT: It looks like I can't edit the spreadsheet to add that I will be doing the 1M too. If someone has edit access, please add 1M to what I will be participating in if you can.

Minor clarification, Ray will be making the traditional Bev's Better Burger Run for lunch Friday, you'll need to sign up and pay him in the morning if you're interested.

We'll be out there by 8:00 Friday, and run the clock for AULD once we get it set up.

Dinner Friday is on the field, BBQ from David's BBQ and brew from First Magnitude, included in the registration.

Which reminds me, do your registering Friday so we can start the contest Saturday morning and not have to futz around with the paperwork!

Mi Apa Latin cafe is sponsoring dinner Saturday night. They are conveniently located in Alachua and are open for breakfast. You gotta eat breakfast somewhere, so stop in and thank them while you're enjoying a guava pastry and Cuban coffee.
