I'm looking forward to another great time in Farmville.

Thanks Garry!
Looking forward to flying with you again at your field


I am very glad to see that the 2021 world champion signed up for the event.
I hope this brings a few additional pilots.
You don't get a chance to compete against a world champion every day.

This is a great contest. Oleg and Dess know how to run a F5j contest.
Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it this year. ��

The usual field testing committee convened today at the club field for a tough day of F5J practice. Windy and turbulent air.

We need more pilots to sign up for our event!
Join us in April!

I am sad I am missing your contest this spring. I took 4 days off for it a while back. Unfortunately family commitments make it impossible.
Hopefully I can make it this fall.

I can strongly encourage anyone who has not attended the East Coast F5J Festival contest to make the trip to Farmville NC. This contest is run very well with great competition.
