An Invitation: 

If you are ever in the area of Prescott Valley, Arizona please call me and we can go flying.  My club, Prescott Valley Silent Flyers, usually flies on Saturdays but I can also fly on Sundays and Fridays. 

I usually fly several major contests during the year.  USUALLY you will find me at the Southwest Classic in Phoenix, the NATS in Muncie, IN, Visalia, CA for their Fall Fest and Spring Fling, Denver F3J in the Rockies, Central Arizona Soaring League F3J in December.  Please visit my vender site at a contest and we can talk winches and retrievers and tell tales about how well we are flying.

Yes, that's me in the weird hat.  I'm sitting in my easy chair with a soda in my left hand and the LBO switch in my right.  Dave is ready to launch his Big Birdy.  If he wanted he could launch and retrieve by himself using the dual pedal foot switch.   That football goal post has eaten more planes than I want to admit.  Good football field,  Bad goal post...
