I like your signature Jerry!

Al and I just practiced calling and flying stick planes tonight and a little sim time (not too much because it really messes with me since nothing acts close to my plane). I called Sportsman for him and he called Intermediate for me. I'm gonna get smoked!

Smoked - Not a chance

Whirlygir, with your preparation, you'll do fine. Glad I'm not going to have to compete against ya. Hope to see everyone next time. Chic

You have a whole lot of upside down (stuffz) in intermediate. All last year I practiced intermediate unknowns and flew in sportsman. It makes the sportsman unknowns easy, plus I was ready to move up at the end of the year. You and Al will both do fine.
The sim does not do much for practice. I still play around with it, but it does not fly anything like my plane either.
Three of us are going out to practice tomorrow afternoon and then head up your way Friday.

Cool! We're heading out to the field for some afternoon practice along with some fun flying with Justin. He turns 8 today!

I'll be at the field Friday morning ready to receive competitors. Gate will be open at the road by 9am (if not earlier). Let's get some practice in then...I could use all the pointers you guys will give.

If I'm not judging I will be happy to call for you guys.

I have not talked to Joey Hayes, but he was planning on coming up. He is an OK caller.

Yes, you are correct. It is easy to get to Kitty Hawk and well-worth the visit! We love going down to the Outer Banks!

Hope everyone had a great event, wish I could have been there. The Sbach mod is complete, Dave at Planebender stepped me through the mod because he had to do it for another customer of his. Hope to see you guys for practice sessions soon. Chic
