Weird. I put a notice in the calender and it showed up here as well - without a title and just the weather reference.

Because the original proposed date (May 23) is Memorial Day weekend, we moved it to the 16th of May, weather permitting.

My concern is that it's too unpredictable. Between now and then we normally receive a lot of rain, which has to dry out enough for me to get in the field and cut the track. Plus it's still generally pretty windy. I guess the wind isn't as big an issue as the rain cause the little 250s tend to cut through that anyway if they stay close to ground.

What I would like for this race is a smaller turnout so we can work out the bugs, then, if everything goes ok, hold another race later in the summer and push that one.

That's sounds like a good plan. how big were you planning on making the track. similar to what your flying now in the front part of the homestead behind the trees, or smaller?

Yes it is 4 oclock in the morning. I can't sleep.

I'm going to use the one track I have been flying and maybe cut another shorter one, depending on the turn-out. I've let them known they can bring their bigger helis and smaller quads if they like. So we'll see as things get closer.

Sounds like its going to be a gas. Time restraints on my part don't allow me to make the trek  :t2321:

Maybe the next time...

Edward...it is a long summer.
And we don't need no "event" to go flying, if you know what I mean.

If you don't know what I mean, that is an open invite to come up for the weekend or weekdays or wutever...no pressure. Think about it. It's pretty up here
