Dean,

Right now, we're planning to take turns between rounds because it appears there will be AMA/FAI guys flying the SPA/BPA contest too.

steve....

I am looking forward to attending, it's my wife's birthday weekend. So I am waiting for the right moment to mention it to her, if you know what I mean. It does sound like a great time and I do have an Ultrasport with a YS on a pipe to fly in the BPA.

thanks bud....

Dean,

Looking forward to your attending, but if you can't make it, I certainly understand.

To all,

Anyone planning on coming to this year's AMA/FAI contest, please reference earlier Post #44 and pre-register by completing the form provided and sending it to me at the following address: homenda1@yahoo.com

By pre-registering, we'll save more time for flying.

Thanks for your help.

Steve Homenda

Bump - not a lot done. Will hopefully complete the plane by next weekend. I'm heading to JAX tonight for the IMAC 3 day regional event.
Thanks,
Jim

if you plan to fly either SPA or BPA, go to the Senior Pattern website (http://www.seniorpattern.com/contests.htm) and pre-register for the particular class you plan to fly.
To pre-register for BPA, fill out as much as possible and under the comment section, put in BPA and the class you plan to fly in.
Thanks.

Here are some pics from Sunday's 'practice' session at the field. Needless to say, mine was literally cut short (make sure you always look before letting your plane go). It'll live to see another day, but for Tangerine it looks like my dad will have to fly the new Eon. I don't think he'll mind... it's electric after all. Thank you Blake for the pics.

A "mid-ground".....LOL!!!

man that looks like a shark attack....

Well I haven't been out flying in a couple of weeks, and MAY get a couple of days before the contest if I'm lucky. I'm over my head in balsa, foam and primer dust, and under the weather to boot. Hopefully it'll break loose in the next week or so and I can go play with this new 170 a little.

if the weather holds and it works out, we'll try to get some pics of the maiden on Mike's Aurora next week. Still haven't made it out to do that.

BTW JAS I'll email you those weights in a few minutes....

-Mike

Hey all,

I was wondering if anybody was coming out from the Houston area. I have a Black Magic kit that needs transportation out to Houston for a new friend that is getting into pattern flying. I have a built fuse crutch and cores so it will take up a little room....

or maybe someone that might be driving through Houston, that could do this favor, just thought I would ask

If you can help a brother out please let me know.

thanks all.

Dean

Say Dean thanks for passing the word around.
That would be really cool if someone from H-Town can hook me up........

Hopefully, maybe I can sneak out and take a trip and escape Houston for a few days.

Thanks guys,

Orlando
