Mike Furcolow Memorial Fun Fly

I have changed the name of the Western Colorado Slope Challenge . As some of you may know Mike passed away on March 14th. He will be missed by many. We plan a gathering at Garvin mesa on Friday May 4th for a cook out , then fly Big mesa on Saturday . Mike would have loved for us to celebrate his life .He had a great life and great a women to share it with. More details will follow. If anyone has a really good picture of Mike please send it to me . I want to get it enlarged and have everyone to sign it and I will give it to Terri. Thanks Rich Ps there will be no prizes as this is just a fun fly. Combat ON!

Chris 56

Well, we all know that the level of interest in combat has been waning for what??..10 years now. It doesn't matter as there will always be at least a half dozen of us that like to crack a beer, talk smack, and do it. Who cares if those front range duds dropped out a long time ago (anyone over there listening?). Plan the weekend and the die hards will be there having a blast. I'm coming regardless of what happens with a mountain bike in tow, stuff for Garvin, Smith, and combat of course. Keep the stoke, old slopers never die!!

Chris the reason I was asking was I wanted to bring it back to its old glory with give aways from Dream flight ect ect, but I cant justify even asking them if it looks like only a few will show up. I know I can count on our core group to come. I just wish those that are coming would speak up. The more that do the more that will sign up. There is going to be guaranteed wind . LOL

Where have I heard that before? Hah! I'm pretty sure Paul and Judd will be there and Mike if he is feeling well enough. Not sure about LP. People are kind of in and out of here right now due to the time of year. I bet there will be more interest in a month.

Tell Josh to post something for once. Essentially, that he will be there too. How about this guy Alex? Maybe he can chime in. Oh yeah, I'm on channel 56...old school!

Sorry, didn't see the thread, in general I only read the ones I am already watching, don't skim for new stuff.

Yeah I should be there? Is this the same spot as has been or are you contemplating other sites?
