Planning to Arrive Friday a.m. and leave Monday a.m.. Spring break here at the school is perfect timing this year, well if I had Thursday and Monday off it would have been better. I have to leave immediately after school, its only 14-1/2 hour drive ~950 miles.

Yah, was in Kansas City last year at my daughter's on my way done when I received the horrible news that my brother passed. Well planning to get there this year.
Can't leave here until after 8:00 pm on the 16th, parent/teachers conferences. Then 14 hours behind the wheel, so arrival time will be about noon or later if I drive all night.

I have been in and out of the hobby as a beginner over the years due to a health situation. I have always enjoyed watching this event and I officially joined the club this past Saturday. I plan to participate this year in the beginner/novice area.
Looking forward to getting involved and meeting fellow heli enthusiasts and pilots.
