When it dawned on me that I only need to judge half of those flights I suddenly felt a tiny bit better.  Glad there's two circles and two sets of judges.  Now, how do I get away with cutting that in half again?! VD~ S?P

Just to provide a little perspective, Allen stated 27 planes x 4 flights over 2 days.  Back in 2006-2010, there were typically ~45 planes.  This highest number I recall was 54 planes in 2005.

Hi everyone, If all goes well I should be there Friday and Saturday. I will be flying from the West Coast, If I read correctly flying starts at 7 am?

I will be there unless something changes I just spent 3 1/2 days in the hospital with a small intestine blockage. They assure me it will not be a problem

in the future so I am still coming. I can help in any way. I have some experience as I am the CL Scale event director for the Northest Regionals in

Oregon. I do not mind doing any type of thing you need .Hope to see you all later this week.

Bob, yes, two circles and two sets of judges.  It's getting closer!!  I plan to pack tomorrow as Wed. will be too busy with family stuff here.  Already have the tank full on the ole van.  I spite of my teasing allen I am excited to have it so close and almost back to normal, whatever THAT is.

Sorry I did not come a day earlier to help you guys my planned arrival of Thursday pm didn’t happen they cancelled my morning flight and had only one out at 4 Pm pacific Tmi Thursday which was postponed multiple times . I arrived in Indianapolis  at 3:00 AM then drove the rental car to Muncie and arrived in Muncie at 5:AM. After being awake for over 24 hours I needed a nap so slept 4 hours and arrived at the field at around 10:30 am only to find out that it had to be cancelled !!! I was hoping to meet you guys . I am in Muncie until Sunday around 10 am

Hi Walter, I was so looking forward to seeing you, but when we were able to get the c/l scale done in one day before we were blown and rained out, I had been getting texts from people needing into my shop so I skipped the banquet and headed home.
Larry will be there all week after being a tremendous help on Thursday and Friday, so you should be able to link with him.  At least I got to spend some quality time with him, all was not lost.
Hope your nats time is good, hope to see you sometime soon,
Will
