Another update to the list. I know of an additional 4-6 pilots that have not pre registered.

This has turned out to have the makings of a great race!!!

I will be out at the field on Sat getting things ready. Several racers will be out on Sun also. If you want to come out and see the field or get some practice in, come on out!!!

I have had several calls/questions the last few days. Two items have come up that I have made decisions on that conflict with the current rules. I believe that these two changes are for the better of this race at OJA.

- EF1 - Battery weight will be allowed to be a MAX of 335g. This is up 10g from the current rules. This change has been submitted previously to NMPRA and I think it will be accepted and changed for next year.

- EF1 - The Pogo ARF airplane will be allowed to race WITHOUT the tip extensions. This race at OJA is the first on the East coast and some of the competitors have this plane, but have not raced it since the rule change to add the tips.

I you want to get an idea about the site and race organization at OJA, check out this great video from the NMPRA Q40 Champ Race last month! It gives the whole picture about this awesome pylon course.

The weather looks good for the weekend. A little cool, so bundle up.

Registration will begin on Friday and end at EXACTLY 8AM on Saturday.

If you know who your teammates will be, send me an email with the info. treywitte1 at gmail dot com

I will be inspecting planes, checking fail safes and testing batteries on Friday and Saturday morning.

THANK YOU to everyone who is coming out and racing!!
