    Are you ready for more Fun Fly @ The Nats?
    Well, I am honored and proud to announce…

    It will be held during the Nats on an evening[tentatively Tuesday]
    after normal prizegiving is over, as per the prior 2 years.

    The rules are simple.

    weighing more than 10 grams may be flown.
    Launcher per AMA stick and rubber rule.

    Heats of mass launches will result in a final for all the marbles!
    Any flier beating my Vartanian timed bogie flight gets a special
    piece of launcher rubber!

    Extra!!! Raffle!
    Only a Buck per ticket for your chance to win a kit of Red Mo 12,
    last years’ winner of Beat the Vart trophy!

    Hi fellow BTV enthusiasts!

    Just to remind, the flights are going to be timed and recorded this year.
    So that means all fliers need to carry STOPWATCHES, since it is a
    TIME ONE, FLY ONE operation!

    Two weeks from tomorrow the BTV Mass Launch Fun will be in full swing,
    so I hope everbody is ready and raring to go!

    See you all there!

    Note to Moderator, etal.

    The 2008 BTV event is history, so you need not carry this topic any longer.

    It was delayed from Tuesday until Friday, Aug 8, due to t-storms.

    FYI, my Red Mo 12 won for the 2nd year running, tho the intent is to share the fun.

    I want to thank the 12 fliers who were there to participate & hope we can meet again
    next year in more favorable conditions.

    yr hmbl srvnt,
