Default Any Bro's going to EAC in Chattanooga?

Im just wondering how many of my fellow profile flying buddies might I see if I make it to Chattanooga next weekend.

I heard that Hot Springs was a blast and Im itching to get to one of these events. And this might be the perfect opportunity since its so close.....relatively speaking. Ive got a few of my buddies from my club that are going so its looking pretty good for me. This will give me the motivation that I need to finish my cowl. I was told in no uncertain terms that I would not be allowed to fly with the existing cowl by some of my close buddies.

I dont think it looks that bad.........am I wrong?

Good grief...I've had brand new cowls that looked worse than that. Maybe your nit-picking buddies will do the work for you if it's that important.

Oh and I will be in Chattanooga too. Looks like my plane will survive till then since I didn't get to fly this weekend. [:'(]

Hey Key Key,

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Besides, it looks a might prettier than that old Sledge you gave Brian at Louisville

Hope you guys have fun.

Doesn't look as bad as mine. Not to bad for hitting a barn.

It has been fixed and still fly it but not close to barns anymore.

Well the ol girl has definately been around the block a few times. But she has been good to me.

I mounted the cowl and laid down a coat of primer today. If my paint will cooperate and dry fast enough I may just make it in time. And then a have a set of graphics that I had made by Kirby's Custom. By then she'll be so purdy that I'll be guaranteed to crash it! Ofcourse my planes dont have to be purdy for me to crash them.

Well Im really looking forward to this event. I still have a few details to work out before I can commit 100% but things are looking good.

What about our Memphis Bros? Any of you guys coming out? C'mon Bandito.....round up your possy and head out east this weekend!

Sorry Scott, wish I could get out there but I still gotta find a job. It's been since Feb, and unnecessary trips tend to rob the bank account. I still plan on Nashville though. Even if I have to hitchhike and camp

I did call for a buddy at an IMAC deal once. He was competing, but just to get a feel for it..he wasn't trying to dominate the field.

Anyway, he had like a 1/4 roll on the upline with a hammerhead turn at the top (something like that), and when I called out the sequence I said, "1/4 left roll, peckerneck turn". Well, the guy just flys right on thru the sequence, didn't bat an eye...but the other guys (and the judges I imagine) just busted a gut. The guy was used to me smacking at him when he flew..he was the guy that gave me the nickname "ChuckAuger"!

Did the judges give him any leniency for having to deal with a schmuck like you?

He did pretty good! He was a stick, I haven't flown with him since 3D came about...he would definitely be Bro material [8D] He got kinda soured on the IMAC thing cause his (then) wife got some pretty crappy scores at a contest, and she was a LOT better than some of the guys she was flying against.

FWIW, he was the other "Renegade of Funk" of the famous "Renegades of Funk"!

Move sucka move! Dance sucka dance!

I checked, he is still registered here under VONDUG, never made a post.
