I'm keen as usual but as usual will have to see how I go. Early in the new year suits me too. Must build that synergy 3m! And something out of the tips too!

I'm interested .... hadn't flown DS for months and months, but a recent trip to Johanna for some speed has re-ignited my passion for it. Early in the year would be good, but it's also a calm weather season....

Glad to hear your passion for DS has been sparked again!!

Early-Mid Jan has always been the previous go to. After family Xmas and New year's plans and usually right in the middle of North East and North West season for us here. I'll be down south of tekapo over New year's doing some full-size, and will come back for the fest
