OK you Vintage FAI Power guys....the deal at Sierra Cup will be $10 gets you in...another $20 if you want to talk about it at the banquet Wednesday night. You fly on Wednesday from the F1J area and it will be 5 rounds starting at 8AM-so you will be well underway when the mini events start at 10 AM...Walt Ghio is your official CD but if you want to enter early-send me $10 or $30 if you want to join the crowd at the banquet...Dave Parson's, just bring one of your models and it's $10 at the event as you're already in....I promise, if I don't have F1A obligations, I'll build one of these after the Finals. Should be fun.
