I always wear black tshirts over white.
white gets yucked up too quickly... no issues for me in the summer.

Hey Rafa,
To keep the price down, I have to order shirts in bulk. If I had enough people that wanted long sleeves.
Thanks
Joe

What's up is that they're cooler in the Texas sun. Some people are more heat tolerant than others. Black shirts are heat absorbers; I can only wear them in the cooler months without overheating.

What's unfortunate about gray? It's not like we're all fashionistas and can't wear the same color two consecutive years. Are you planning to put the same design on them this year?

My wife and I are planning to make a week of it and go to the Hill Country before heading to Austin.

Yes... The long range outlook is looking promising. Do not know about the wind yet, but dry and warmer.

So here are the list of events and awards. I will make sure that the flight line is open most of the day. One part will be shutdown for the drag racing.

1. Autorotation.
2. Intermediate.
3. Drag Racing.
4. Best Crash.
5. Top pilot. We will ask for your votes threw out the day.

Be sure to stick around for the night flying. Most surprises seem to happen during the night time. Some of the most impressive flights I have seen by the pros like Curtis Youngblood and Jamie Robertson always happen at night. Bring your night rigs also, as we will have a spot for that kind of flying.

I am going to see if I can get a mixture of black and gray shirts.
If I can get enough request, then I will add the date to the shirt.

We will be serving fajita dinner Saturday night, and Friday night we will be serving free Pizza to the pilots and if they brought a family member.

There are spots for camping. It is $10 a night with electric hook up only. We have 15 hookups, both 30 amp and 50 amp.

Can not wait to see everyone again, and to have a lot of fun.

Night Flying
I just had a thought. I am going to get an extra trophy for the Best Night Flying. The crowed will be the judge on who performs the best.

Bring your favorite tunes.

I would like to, but I did not come up with a safe way to do it. Been out of town for almost a month, and got behind.

Hey Jamie,
Unfortunately there is a car show happening at the expo center down the road. Even though it is a small event, it took up some of the close hotels. Some people have been going to Elgin for hotels, which is a little bit of a drive.
Here are a couple that I tracked down fairly close.

If you google Hotels near Manor,TX, you can get a good list. Stay beween 183 and 290 on I35 are fairly safe.
