There's plenty of trees to hang a hammock in between. Might be wise to bring a tent as I know last year it stormed overnight between Saturday and Sunday

I survived the Muncie storms at the NATS in this thing. Dry as can be.

Nice, from what I know Norm Potti will also be camping at the field like he did last year.

Jason, I would think there are a couple of spots you could utilize. Marc

Not the best use for trees


Jason

Putting a hammock in the trees at the LASS field is a much better idea than what I did in Mar when I was flying with the guys down there. We were able to get it out with minimal damage with a long bamboo pole and climbing 1/2 way up. See you at the contest. It is a great group to fly with.

Shaping up to be quite a contest. 3 expected Pilots took 1st (Jason Cole) and 3rd in F5J (Frank Burnowski) and 1st in ALES (Jerry Shape). Way to go guys! Can't wait to see you flying here in 1 week.

I'll be on the field Friday AM. I'll bring along a small timing system.

I'm also bringing a NIB Crozilla and NIB Neu 1102/3.5Y/P22 for sale.

Will this contest be seeded man on man or will you be generating a matrix like last year?

The entry fee is $20 daily. A very nice lunch will be grilled on Saturday. We'll decide if pilots want to take a lunch break on Sunday or fly straight thru and finish earlier. We will be generating a matrix with all the pilots at the outset. This will save time and allow more flying as we won't have any downtime between rounds. We'll have a continuous running clock (with the ability to pause it) that will allow us to fly 4 groups each hour. I'm hoping for 7-8 rounds. The draw for the matrix generates 50 combinations and picks the matrix with the greatest combinations of different pilot groups.

Just booked the hotel and getting the planes tuned up for a great event this weekend. Looking forward to flying with the great LASS group and all others who are joining for this exciting contest. I am still repairing The Tribute so it will not fly, but will have a couple of SupraX gliders ready for action. Thanks for hosting and praying for great weather.
