Signed up. Counting on my new Volo to be ready for action by then - otherwise, I will have to beat y'all with my Easy Star

I won the Novice class in the fall contest. It's a trick. There is no trophy. Not even a callout so don't get too excited.

I'm just going to have to place top 3 in the expert class I guess, even though I'm what I would consider a "sportsman".

Greg, sorry for breaking your hopes in the last contest!
I will make you a special trophy. Maybe...

Jason, same for you - a special trophy, for being the first (and last?) Novice.

And Greg - you have my permission to use your Volo despite of what Brady may say about it.


Thanks to all for signing up.
We are up to 13 pilots already.

I figure the clean underwear is in case we have to swap pants again. Not to get too far off topic Brady, but what would be worse in a pants swap scenario, dirty underwear or no underwear? Asking for a friend...

You know that could go in a lot of different directions. Maybe we should bring extra long pants this time if we need to take a hike in the woods.
