    Yesterday was kind of sketchy. Lot's of light rain on and off until about 1: 30 then it started steadily raining. Hopefully the weather get's better and better toward Friday. I'll try to post some pics of planes. Janelle is the official family picture taker. I'll talk real nice to her.

    RE: Top Gun 2013

    Sean and I stopped by the field on the way home from work today. There were several beautiful aircraft in the air, a constant stream of planes taking off, flying and landing. The field and the parking areas actually looked in pretty good shape, I was expecting worse. Looks like a great turnout too, I think that this will be an awesome weekend. We are flying our 1/4 scale electric powered SE-5 in the noon time demo Saturday and Sunday. If you come out look for the red Studebaker truck pulling a ww2 military painted trailer, come by and say hello. We will be hanging out with the warbird alley guys. Bring a smile, your love of aviation and come enjoy the fun!

    See ya soon .............Have a good one!

    A few more shots from today.

    A case for Columbo, WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE !!!! The donut taste tester who eats and runs, i guess he didn't like the Chocolate Glazed Dunkin Donut and left it in
    the box for everyone to admire and truthfully get sick to our stomach. looking at it. I really think i will pass on providing the tasty morning donuts for someone to taste and run...........I'll save it if you want to come back and finish it.......

    Sorry for one J. A. to spoil a good thing!! Can you imagine ???

    I couldn't do something like that.

    RE: Top Gun 2013

    Looks like stiff competition for Mr. Top Gun this year with lots of great models in Expert and Masters. Nice to see Jeff Foley with his 109.

    Planedriver 2, we would be grateful if you could take a picture of the score boards at the end of the competition and post the scores, if you're there today and have the time.

    Looks like a great year for TG, as always.

    RE: Top Gun 2013

    Tom Smith and I ready for the final round, Team Scale. Thanks to Tom for all his help. My friend David took i'll and the Chief Judge allowed me to have Tom fill in as my caller for the event. Final round score 91.375 and took 7th place out of 12....Not a bad year.

    A big improvement since my first year in last with engine troubles and 10 last year with four rounds completed.

    Thank you everyone who helped me get through the event........
