Eastern Pilots, The Labor Day contest has grown dramatically in popularity,
increasing from six or seven gliders in 1999 to more than a dozen in 2001. A
show of hands at the 2002 Championships seemed to indicate that this year we
might exceed that number. Frank Reid reports that he and Jayne have been flying
at 6000 agl in recent days. Scoring will be accomplished primarily by GPS.
Frank has a few Garmin 12 units that he will loan out, so donít fail to come
because you donít have a GPS unit. Come even if your are GPS challenged. The
event will be an informal, but fun and competitive event. Be there. You will be
scored one way or other. Registration cost is only $25. Tows can be provided on
Thursday and Friday, August 29 and 30 for those who want to come early. Plan to
be there on Friday evening, August 30 for dinner out with the group. Turn
points will be posted in the near future.
