I couldn’t make it to Poway last Saturday. My presence would have changed the outcome.

When’s the next one. If free I’ll come up to exact revenge, or eat more than my share of cookies.

Ive been out practicing as often as i can now that the wind has seemingly dissapeared up here, and oh boy all i have to say is, you guys better watch out!! Lol

Now mandatory competative psychological warfare out of the way.....

I have good news, for me anyways, im up to 80% of dead airs being 2:00 +-0:05!!!
And some bad, at least for me... i am verry out of practice on my thermal turns lol. And my throwing technique, it is verry sloppy...

If im able to practice as much as i want to this next couple if weeks, i might get up to 2:10 on my dead airs!

I still remember the days i was exited for a 0:30 lol!!!

I would be excited for 0:30 TODAY!

My low back is still wrapped by hot pad after training for the Treeathlon (March 1st). Let’s see by 7th, I could get something ready to fly (found a couple of receivers, yesterday :-)

New tasks sound good to me, but aren't the individual tasks always ordered a little different each toss? For a newbie like me I think repetition might be easier. I've always had a great time and think it has been run excellently. It's really something to look forward to! Sounds like it's time to rebuild that DLG pod that popped out last year. Then I'll have a backup again.

I also think repetition is good,
but when i was first starting out, i found that the diffrent tasks helped me move out of my comfort zone a little forcing me to try new things, like flying farther out to find the thermals for instance. or even being in the same thermal as other people, of which i still dont like doing...

In the end its just a matter of practice!

Hey is the Toss no longer on the F3X Vault site? I couldn't find it earlier. And yes moving outside ones comfort zone really strengthens your split decision making. Although with me it's always a toss up (no pun intended.. really) lol!

Thanks for the link! Hope to see you there one of these times!
