My sweet wife Aida, had this great idea to change it up this year. So instead of plaques, we decided to use Yeti's.

It's looking like I may actually be able to make room for this in my schedule. Things are slow at work, so it's a perfect time to burn some time-off. I just hope the rain holds off this year.

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.

I'm leaning heavily towards going, at least Saturday, if weather cooperates. I think I'll tape "dogbreath" on my shirt so fellow HFers can say hi. I'm not a competition pilot, but I will bring the eXo and something else or two. If it looks windy it won't be a small heli.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to back out again. I'm still getting over a virus that flattened me last weekend and into Monday.

My transmitter is down for the count. No flying for me until it gets repaired.

As usual these guys are the best!!! I'm not just saying it because I won the heli and a charger. This club is a real class act that knows how to host a great event!!! I only regret that I could only make one day this year. Hats off to the Abilene RC Society!
