Fate and the Old Combat Guys
« on: January 06, 2018, 08:52:01 AM »

   What's happened here on the combat scene ?  No posts since December 12 ...... Did all the combat guys die and go to stunt heaven ?  That seems to be what happens sooner or later to all the old combat guys, just looking back across the last 40 years. ...... Just wondering.    ......     D>K        H^^

Most of the F2D flyers are on Facebook. A lot of the combat sites are very quite .

All the good combat flyers tend to be extremely evasive...... ;D

Iíve found most combat flyers very open and willing to help . Equipment is probably more equal now than at any time in history. The biggest difference is practice.

Congrats to Cary on the championship.  I remember watching you and your brother practice at the Knorthern Knights field.  Even Andy stated that some times Cary was not aggressive enough which I agreed with.   Seen a few mishaps when he did, but it looks like it paid off.  Now he has to look out for little nephew.   H^^
