Blocked out the weekend.
This is a very well run contest at a nice and challenging field.
Flying against Oleg, Brady and Dick is great fun.
I plan to be there.
Cheers Maarten

You should be looking in Greenville, NC. I live 40 miles away, so maybe some of the guys that have been traveling to the
DESS events will comment, please.

Yes the best offering of hotels is in Greenville NC,
The flying field is actually closer to Greenville vs. Wilson.

Stay


The ESL bunch stay at the downtown Hampton, in Wilson.
A few minutes further from the field but usually a lot cheaper than Greenville
