Pilot pre-registration is now closed, of course you can still register at the event! Pilots who have pre-registered will have their pilot forms pre-printed at the registration desk.

Weather forecasts are calling for cooler temps than the 90++ temps we've had here for the last 12 days. The forecast is calling for temps in the mid-80's with late afternoon isolated T-storms...which is typical for this area in the summer. Detailed forecast is available at:

Latitude: 39.550961
Longitude: -75.732579

Drive safe! Enjoy the event! See you there!

Best,

We actually have more than 79 pre-registered pilots. I took another last night, and then there are those who just don't pre-register.....rcpete2 and westwind two [:-] But, hey, I'll print your forms for ya!

I've also noticed several pilots logging into the the database, but not clicking the "Register" button. I'm hoping that they don't think that just by logging in that they are registered. Oh well. We'll find out at the registration table. Of course, if anyone has input on our registration system, feel free to give input. There's many items on the list of things to improve and add, but it's something I've not had a lot of time to dedicate.

Either way, we usually double our registered pilots at the event.

Most vendors, but not all, will be in attendance on Thursday. I wouldn't be surprised if there are a couple of them there now.

Yeah... I Just started this job back in march, after being laid off from BAE for 9 mounths , and they work a 24/7 shedule. My brothers employer also started this same program in FEB, and we are on the same weekend shedule, so we can only make it on THURSDAY. ShUCKS!!!! Looks like not much in the way of food either??? How about Pilots/planes? WE are coming down from PA.

The Boy Scouts will be serving lunch, and most likely breakfast as well, on Thursday.

While our big spectator days are Friday & Saturdays, Thursday has been a great day at WOD for the last couple of years, even though only about 60 - 70% of the pilots are there that day. A lot of the SKS video footage is shot on Thursday, if that gives you any type of reference to the activity.

This event keeps us moving all week long. So, I doubt anyone would/could be disappointed on any day. I was at the field last night and there was a camper there. I'll be back there tonight for the meeting, and like I said, I'm sure that there are WOD participants and vendors already there.

Hi Tony,

I arrived late today. Got the tents up, planes assembled, and put away for tonight. Going to bed early to get ready for plenty of flying tomorrow. I'll try to take some pictures through the week.
