Our fall racing season is almost here, I have scheduled an EF 1 race Sun Sept. 10, start time is 10:30 am. Also hoping to get another race in on Sun. Oct. 1.
Please confirm if you can make the Sept. 10 race.
Remember go fast, turn left.

Ken,

Mike has gone AWOL.  We have to find him first before we can rattle his chain.  :D
What got in the way this summer for Mike was the new concept of a full-time job.  That is step 1 before flying, which is step 2... at best. ;D

Frank

ps: saw the photo of your 14lb fish.  Was that photo taken before or after you funnelled lead shot into its belly?  ;D  A 1250 KV 25 in its mouth should make it around the race course. It has enough fin area. :)

Temac Racers,

Let's meet at the usual coffee shop at Hiway 9 and Weston Road (Hiway 27?) about 3-4 km west of 400 on the north-east corner of the intersection.  Map https://www.yellowpages.ca/bus/Ontario/Schomberg/Country-Style/7431035.html

So far Greg H., Glenn and I are confirmed with Michael and Stefan possibles.  Simon is out of the country and Mike Hazelton has this excuse about seeing a special movie at TIFF.  Yes Mike is alive.  He surfaced yesterday at Student Night.  You are never going to get such a long take-off run and landing space without obstacles.  Just stay away from Simon's Tree (The Hinchwood Tree) and you will be just fine.

We need to defend our superior performance from the spring session.  Three of the Orangeville guys went down to the Nats in the States and practice raced just because they are scared of us. :D

Frank

Mike showed up for student night?! has it been that long that he needs to re learn how to fly?  ;D
Weather is looking good so far, hope the winds stay light...
Also, Ken.... Hows the field? can we park on the adjacent runway? Sounds like we have a few more people coming.
Cheers
Cory

Hi Frank... scratch me off that list. Mike has an extra ticket for that TIFF movie :)

The big IMAX screen, Dunkirk, and Christoper Nolan will be there ...

See you all at the next one.

Ken,

The Hazmat Brothers obviously have continuously changing priorities.  I can hear their explanation now.  They are watching the movie Dunkirk so they can properly master the strafing run.

See you Sunday.

Batteries are charged.  I even stretched the wrinkles out of my stab and wing.  This insane need to come second last (instead of last) is taking on a life of its own. ;D
