Updated pilot list

Other than the rain, hail and snow - the forecast looks sweet!

Here is the pilot’s list so far:

1. Scott
2. Mark
3. Mike
4. Jeff
5. Martin (you find a model to race?)
6. James
7. Adam
8. Chad
9. Vance

*need at least 10 pilots/people to run these MoM events.

Hope to hear back from all the regulars (Adam, Doug, Wid, Matt, Vance, Bruce, Aaron, Dave, James, ...)

New comers and first timers are welcome. Very friendly group to help you get off on the right track.

AMA and a signed NCSS waiver are required to fly at the SLoT (Benicia)

Race fees $5 for NCSS mebers, $10 for non-members, first timers always free. Race fees help cover the cost of trophies.

Wind forecast looks weak for Sunday at the SLoT.

Will keep an eye on it, and make the call as we get closer.

Forecast still looks weak for Sunday, but at least promising in the afternoon. Plan to gather at Noon, hopefully racing soon after.

This may be a rare day at the SLoT when we will need lighter models.

Tough call on this race.

Goodness, forecast worsening?!
Do you guys race Wanderers and such, in order to still gather, or just cancel altogether?

Normally I cancel unless the forecast is solid.

It is not solid. And has gotten worse.

Trying to give it every opportunity, but will most likely throw in the towel given the downgrade in forecast. It is nearly dead calm in the valley and on the hill now.

Sorry guys. Will make a final call this evening.

Each time i look the forecat worsens!
I'm even debating on today's attempt at Coyote hills with my Spilf in case the wind picks up, as usual, later.

It does not look like the wind is going to cooperate. Going to cancel the MoM race.


The wind kicked in about 4:30 today. But it looks like weak NW for tomorrow, which does not work.

Well get a race in at some point this year.

Looks like a great day up there.
SuperSonic will probably be rocking.
Have fun.

Sorry I haven't chimed in on participating. I've been checked out I guess. I'll line things up for the June race.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
I was checking the dates for the next race, and the above caught my eye.
Being totally unfamiliar with scoring in general, could you rephrase it so even a caveman could understand it?
