For those people that have not been there before and thinking about it, this is a "have fun" get together and most of the time, only one or two planes are in the air. So everyone can relax ald fly with ease. Hope to see all the friends there.

Good one Paul [img][/img]

Are you bringing the Flash? Anything else? I may have a Skymaster L-39 if I can get it finished and maiden before then.

See ya in a couple of weeks.

Kirk
Kirk,

I sold the Flash last year as I got an offer I couldn't refuse. Built a Boomer Torus and Carf CT-114 - both will be there. I also am building an Ultra Lightning that will probably be completed before JOW but may not be in time to get 5 flights on it before the event.

Cheers,

PaulD

Dan:

Kicking the airplane into the air does not work as well as advancing the throttle stick. Hope you are not down too long, I am very familiar with knee issues.

Hi Paul,

Not exactly a knee injury. I pulled my quad muscle away from the knee bone. Six to eight week recovery before Physical Therapy. We are in Canon City, CO and I will do my recovery in Wenatchee. Hope to see you at Best of the West.

Reservation made at the hotel, gotta send in my banquet app tonight. Looking forward to another classic JOW...

One of these years I'll show up with a new jet, but the same old hardware for me again this time. Should be a reduced but still decent contingent of Canadian pilot making the trip, a few from Alberta again.



Thanks in advance to Bill and Roberto for keeping the show going this year.

Sorry gents ....no go for me this year. Going to spend some time out at the lake with the family that has been scattered throughout this summer. Definitely, on the list for next year!

Wishing you calm winds and clear sky

Hi Dave,

The F18 has turned into an E18. It's almost ready. Good luck with your event. We'll cross paths at some point.

Chris's Squared (the two chris's Shaker and Rankin) and William Rankin from Oregon are 85% sure we are coming up. Still hammering details out. One of us has been sick lately so it's not 100% yet. Can't wait to come play!

Hey everyone, we're just a couple of days away from JOW 2012.

I have to give a shout out to our generous supporters. Below are just some of the prizes available for the drawing at the event. We'll do our drawing at the banquet Saturday night, but you need not be present to win. Entries for prizes are limited to registered pilots only. One entry per pilot will automatically be generated upon registration.

Duralite Flight Systems

Jack has generously sent us a complete set-up for turbine aircraft including 2 Duralite RX battery packs, 1 Duralite ECU battery and a Powerbox Competition SRS ready for the newest radios of any major brand. Wow!

BVM

Bob Violett Model Jets has been a supporter of JOW for many years and always generously supplies us with a great variety of their products which are a huge hit with the participants.

A big thanks to both companies. Their years of participation in the RC industry providing us with superior service and great products has ensured the growth and enjoyment of our fine hobby. Please keep them in mind and support them as they support us.

Hi Dan

For sure I will try. I will call you after JOW and set a date in advance. It would be fun.

Just got back from Jets Over Whidbey. Thanks to Roberto and Bill for running a nice and laid back event. Thanks to the WIRCS volunteers for aiding in making the event run smoothly. Thanks to the volunteer's families for loaning them to us for the event.

Had my video camera but was too busy enjoying everyone's company, flying, and answering many questions about my e-powered Hunter so it never made it out of its case. Thanks too everyone for the nice compliments about the way the Hunter flew and the sound of the Schubeler fan. Looking forward to next year.
