The Bruce

Okay guys things have finally come together for me to host my first hand launch contest in my backyard. On August 28-30 I will put the donkeys in the pen and prop open the thermal farm gates for the weekend. There is still a bit of work (like registration) to be done on the official website and it is here for you to check out.

You are all invited to spend the weekend with me, my family and friends for some hand launch action in Kentucky.

Along with the regular F3K contest there will be a team event that consists of any 2 guys form the same state or soaring club. The team scores from the preliminary rounds with no throwout consideration will be totaled for the overall team champions.

I hope to see you there.

Crap, this may cost me a tropical vacation. Thanks for putting this together as I'm sure it will be truly unique.

For those that post just to say subscribed, here's a tip for future reference. Goto a thread you would like to add to your subscription list, click on thread tools on in the upper right blue bar, and click "Subscribe to this thread".

I'm very aware of how to "subscribe" to a thread without posting. In this case, I am very glad that Bruce is having a contest mainly because like you, I enjoy DLG and secondly because it is much closer to where I live compared to most of the other contests. Due to the close proximity I hope I can persuade some people to come to the contest that normally would not. So anyway, I say "Subscribed" to express my support and excitement for the contest.
