My opinion is that no fly zones make things more interesting. Everyone has to deal with them the same way. Poway is a great example that being a good neighbor and observing no-fly areas still makes for a great contest.

I’ve attached my guess. But I’ve never flown there.
interesting assessment.

Yes the no fly zone is there, but it does not impact flying. Prevailing winds are from the west, so there's no real need to fly that side anyway. The flying site is on a mesa with a gentle slope that isn't consistent enough to reliably generate lift. Should make for a challenging contest.

And its in the middle of a real city, so there's good 2.5 star hotels up to the Four Seasons (for Seid if he wants to live it up) And real restaurants too...

Does the field suck?
Will the dates change?
Will there be "dinner" at a sports bar?
Will there be a dead large animal at the entrance to the field to mark the turn in?
Will there be some wicked food poising from Subway available on site?
Is there a massive no fly zone?
Will Greg and Mati be allowed to use their 2S powered gliders so long as they only start motors once out of earshot?
Will Jun be there?
Will Toby time for me in the Fly offs?
Will the Maurer continue his long standing boycott of the greatest contest of the year?
Will there be some type of apocalyptic end of days type thing within 1 week of the event within 50 miles of the site?
Will there be a Quality Inn available that doubles as a "Cops" ABQ division filming location?
Does Mati still have the Blue Ballz?

If Lex gives me thumbs up to almost all these questions I'm in.

As a member of the T.O.S.S. club, I can answer a couple of these:

There's a Subway within a mile of the field. Go nuts.

We've already had an apocalyptic end of days type thing within a mile of the field just last month. Hopefully that fulfills our quota.
