I put my order in for a couple new unlimited planes just last night.

Still haven't decided on the ODR situation yet.

Thanks for the heads-up and dates, Erik, and Ty for alerting about the new thread.

I'll forward the OP to Bryan, since he won't see it unless it has a video of funny animal antics.

I would like to make the 25th a three day flying event with good winds we could have a f3f day or something like limbo with warbirds wings or something made of foam. Might set some balloons up with a donated prize in it and you get three passes to pop it. Give us your thoughts and we'll come up with something. Also so we stop it before it happens, Bryan no Hamster rides in gliders!!! Erik

Well if not hamsters, maybe we have a scorpion hunt and color them with fingernail polish to match our Warbirds and Darla could judge.

Another Strega and a Tomcat.

The old Strega needs a bunch of fuse repair. The Opus wing is in basically 2 big pieces and needs fuse work as well.

2-piece Opus wing is easier to transport.

Registration is now officially open!

Actually, it has been un-officially open for a while now. Greg, (Rocky Mtn Flier), registered a couple weeks ago.

On another note, I am looking for photographs from 2016 and 2017 to put on the website, (assuming I can figure out how to do that).

I just requested that the thread be a Sticky in the forum, and got this reply from the Mod:
"Hey, Just letting you know there is a bug preventing posts from being stickied right now. We've got a ticket in with the techs, but I'm not sure when it will get fixed."
So I'm guessing it will be up soon.

FWIW, anybody can request a Sticky be added or removed up top -- you do it with the "Report" button on the top post. Then just choose the request option.

Mark, I've got a few photos. But, most of them I posted in the 2016 and 2017 MWSC threads after the event. Just let me know if you want me to email those photos, and maybe a couple more. Emailed ones might have higher resolution - not sure.
