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.

harv, was that at Molalla 2010?
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.

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!
