Can you compete in more than one event? Two meter and greater than two meter. Plane span dictates class not launch method.

Yes you may compete in as many events as you please
 - greater than 2M ladder
-greater than 2M longest flight
- 2M or less ladder
-2M or less longest flight.

Also will set up a landing Box  100 to 150 meter square  that all flight will need to land in to count instead of 20 meter diameter  landing Circles
Pilots meeting  945 AM with flying to start at 10 am
Will have 3 winches ( one will be the wimpy winch)  bring your F3RES or other high start if you want to set one up to launch your  plane(s). I will  bring at least 1 F3RES high start

I am canceling the Woody event  for Saturday June 19th .
This is due to the wind forecasts from 5 different weather sites  that range from  11 to 18 mph at 10 am  and  14 to 18 mph at 2pm, and  Thunderstorms throughout the day.

Sorry Gents,
