James, unfortunately you will have to look for a helper for every round, which should not be a huge problem since we will have 3 flight groups, so there will be 8-10 pilots who are not flying at any time. I cannot change the matrix now... I made 30 all score card books yesterday.
Are you sure the matrix is correct?????!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmm....maybe 130 plus hours is a lot since Poway?....I don't know.
It doesn't seem like too much to me....but the Steigs have been a handful. Seriously.

The main thing for me is to make the first page.
For me, this means lots of practice.....and I think my practice sessions are getting better.

Looking forward to next week....The road to Carolina opens next Tuesday!...See you guys there!

That's about 6 hours a week every week. I'd say that is very impressive.

OK, I'll bite. What's the weather going to be like?

Let's all hope for good weather....

OK I looked.

Here it is from MSN weather
Friday

Hi:87°Lo:60°
Sunny. High 87F and low 60F. Winds W at 4 mph. Air Quality:NA, UV Index:NA
0% showers


Saturday
Oct 2
Showers

Hi:77°Lo:52°
Showers. High 77F and low 52F. Winds E at 3 mph. Air Quality:NA, UV Index:NA

Sunday
Oct 3
Showers

Hi:64°Lo:41°

Start putting watersealant on your planes!! and start practicing with ballast for Sunday.

What am I saying. Since when can the weatherguys figure out what it's going to do tomorrow? how can we trust them to tell us what it is going to do 10 days from now????

(For those who have an in with God, please start praying. It can only help)

If it is going to be difficult then the cream will still rise to the top!!

Hoping you guys have a stellar TS contest,

Frank

I bet the weather will be good. The Masters is having pretty windy weather today so probably thermal karma will shine on the TS.

I think they are out on a limb on that one. weather.com and use 27896 for a zip or wral.com and use the same zip for their weather. Weather. com suggests winds of 12, not 23.

Yeah, we're still a little far out for any kind of reliable forecast. Here's where all the commercial sites get there info, if you'd rather see it without the ads and cute packaging. Scroll down to the hourly weather graph for the detailed stuff. http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick...8&lon=-77.9245

A forecast out that far is not going to be reliable.
