Can't come soon enough! For all of you pilots who are coming to this event, I would like to organize some sort of competition for one of the days. What would you want? The typical auto contest? Or does anyone have a crazy idea for somethin fun we can get a number of pilots involved in?!? pm me your ideas!!!

I think there should be some sort of 3D competition or something. Really anything to get a lot of people involved so we can have more of a turn out then last year and get more people to come. Either way as long as my dad can get time off work I will be sure to be there doing the ditch. P.S. I just hope that I don't end up feeding it.

ah yes!

The ditch is my best friend. This is definately on my top 5 list of my 13 fun flys last year. The night flying is always awesome too! Make shure the ditch has plenty of space for my heli parts!

Looking forward to this. Still remember the first couple years we got this one going,.. at the Tuscaloosa field, before moving to b'ham. Haven't been now in ten years, and haven't visited mother and brothers in more than a year,.. so I'll have to kill two birds with one stone.
