F5J Contest!

Yes yes yes is all I thought when I got the news that the Knoxville F5J contest is happening. It was originally scheduled for this month, but instead of cancelling the event, they were able to postpone and set a new date of June 27-28. Jim McCarthy and the House Mountain RC club is playing host to this 2-day contest and it is going to be so much fun. TN is very centrally located, so if you are at all able, you need to start making plans to come out and fly with us. More details below.

Great crazy day today. Weather has been tough, windy and cloudy most of the day. Had a rain delay for a bit, but we got in 7 rounds. We’ve been having a great time hanging out and laughing so much my stomach hurts. Looks like rain tomorrow, but we’ll see. Meeting up at 8am and go from there.
