I hope everyone is doing well after the holidays. I 'm sure everyone had their wish list filled with all the pattern goodies they were asking for. Would you believe it? I actually flew a few rounds in January here in Northern Va. That is not normal for this area. I replaced the 30-10 EVo that was in my Visa with a new Plettenberg Advance. I could not believe the difference in power and how quiet it was. Now I have to change my throttle curve. Ok everyone, we have again been challenged by D3 again this year. I have talked to Vector about last years site and the issues that surfaced in 2011. We will be flying at a new site and changes are being made as far as scheduling. Dates are March 31st and April 1st. I'm looking forward to going. Put it on your calendar. By the way the new site does look very nice and to top it off those famous ribs will be served.
JR Varela is working on the final approval of a new contest at his home field in Bridge Water. Va. Dates are June 9th and 10th. Lets make sure to support him. Travel distance from southern areas to his site will be a couple hours closer then the Northern Virginia contests. This could become another annual contest for the district. The FAM contest will again be in May. (Dates 26 and 27th) Make sure to put it on your calendar. Buff Miller has scheduled his Green Sea contest for April 21st and 22nd. I'm sure Bill will be adding the Winston Salem contest to the list. I would expect it to be scheduled for the first or 2nd week of May. Looks to me District 2 will be doing fine this year. Lot's of contest to go to. Now that we have the contests how about everyone helping me getting some more Sportsman fliers!!!!! WE NEED TO INCREASE THE SPORTSMAN FLIERS!! I have a thought. Free entry into a contest if you bring a new Sportsman pilot along to fly in the contest. (You and the sportsman pilot) How does the district feel? Let me know.
Have a great New Year!
