I was very much looking forward to Medford; It's a bummer. As far as luck; well, I've been through it all. I don't much care what happens to model airplanes as long as they are not drawing blood from anybody.

If this happened at a contest, I would gladly borrow an engine from the Burghad storage facility and break out the best looking tape for the cowl

Hi Dave
No, turns out I'm not going, I wanted to but I'm having some work done on my truck and I need to get the water system fixed in my trailer. The next contest you can beat up on me is the Borderline blitz.

Sorry to hear that. I am planning on flying my new H9 Suk. On the bright side, another guy signed up yesterday that may beat up on me.

Darin that happened to me last year as well. I got lucky it was a clean break doing a outside loop. I lost the prop and spinner in the field across the water at Cascade . I got the plane down ok . This weekend I am going to Zillah Big Bird open to get it in the air with the new crank -rebuild.

Thanks Brian congratulations with the event. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then Ha HA . I missed going there and all the hobnobbing. I am printing the 2012 Sportsman Knowns now and hope to get to practice them this weekend. I will be making a stop at Red Apple flyers on Fri to get the Raven it the air on the way to Zillah Big Bird open event .

So far....things are hopping down here at Medford!......Glad I got here last night....got a primo parkin spot down at the swamp end of the field...LOL! Actually it was my choice so I didnt disturb the generator "challenged". Looks like we got some fine weather on tap.....got some mediocre practice in today......looks like I got a 6th place solidified!
