Looking forward to it. I'll be coming down from the bay area.

Bringing a Pogo (and a Shoestring if I get it finished as a backup) and a couple of Viper's.

Great weekend of racing. I had an awesome time and it was good to see people I hadn't seen in a long time. Thanks to Lee Von Der Hey and the San Gabriel Valley Radio Control League for putting on the race. I hope the next race at Whittier has more entries.

We, my son and I, had a great time working the race counting and timing the laps. Long day but it went fast with all the non stop action. All day there was great racing with few mishaps due largely to really good pilots! Hope to see many more the next time around. Who knows, we may get into the mix ourselves since my son was gifted (it was his birthday but he wanted to work the race) a RevLution ARF, though used, but in wonderful condition at the end of the days racing. Thanks guys, he was without words at that one! We're already looking forward to the next one!

Hi Rick,
Glad both of you had a good time. Bob Nickle, who gave the plane to your son is a great guy and long time racer as well. The RevLution is a great flying plane. I was flying the Red, Orange , & Yellow plane which also happens to be a RevLution. Good luck with it.

Not sure if you have heard by now but Bob passed away a couple of years ago.
