I wish I could be there, but I'll be at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory near Chicago for a meeting and a workshop I am helping to organize.

Ok I will need to all the Master Pilots planning to fly at this event have there sequence email ([email protected]) to me with a week in advanced to the contest cause I have to put all that data in the system I think for this will be the best to have a standard sequence for master in the future this is a lot of work put in individual sequence for each pilot.

V.

FYI: I used the computer for the lower classes, and in Masters did the scoring by hand with the help of a few wives at the Andersonville contest.. Since there is NO normalization in any of the classes it goes pretty fast.

We will see what the next pattern cycle will bring in a few years.

I'm gonna do a reply to get this back to the top...

Looking forward to this event, had hoped to do more this year but heli WCs and cancellations of other CPA events got in the way. Planning on driving up on Friday, probably won't get there in time to fly any though. My wife might come along too, any hotels that were listed on the beach? We'll probably stay 'till monday to get some beach time on Sunday afternoon!

Our last heli contest for the year is this weekend in Brandon, then I'll be burning some fuel in the Bootlegger!

See ya soon,
Cliff

Anybody got some suggestions for decent/reasonable beach place at Destin? I might be bringing my wife, depending on how our puppy recovers from her surgery yesterday. Destin looks to be the easiest drive to the contest site vs. Ft. Walton or Pensacola.

Otherwise, I'm at the Hampton.

Cliff

Dave,
Not sure about Wayne, he's been on the road a lot for his work. I'll ping him as we get closer to the date.
