    Kids got the candy, I got the bits. I ran across the field with a bag of extra candy in an effort to imitate the intended drop. Saved a couple for myself as comfort food. The comfort didn't last. And HEY! Thanks for being concerned about the candy. Actually, someone came to me later and said it was amazing. You just crashed and your first concern was getting the candy to the kids... Probably more a matter off blowing of steam, but lets pretend I'm just a nice guy.

    Candy doesn't fly well. Watch the airplane not the candy. Something I should have thought of earlier. That and there was a heavy wind I wasn't accounting for. 20 minutes earlier I did a bunch of neat looking stuff, now a simple loop brought me to my knees and the plane a little lower. Center field with the Funfly crowed looking on. In the future, it will become a new IMAC maneuver.

    Can't decide whether to replace it or take a bit of an RC break. Ok it won't be a real break but I'm running out of time. Really, running, first post chemo race tonight with another next weekend. I'm hoping the competition will motivate me back to pre chemo pace.

    How stupid is this... Running races instead of going to RC events? Please note, some questions are hypothetical and DON'T NEED ANSWERING!

    I flew at pgrc yesterday. That's the nicest club I have ever been to. Great bunch of guys and all of them were very friendly. I will definitely be back. Here are some pics of the field.

    PGRC, a buddy told me about it a long time ago, but never checked it out because us Northern Virginians usually avoid PG county like the plague. But jeezuz, that field looks great! I just checked, 26 miles away from me. They've got a few runways right?

    Your wheels and sound system were still in the truck at the end of the day?

    Its not like that there. Its probably a 500 acre farm in the middle of nowhere. You turn off the main road and onto a back road and its like your in the country. Very nice people there and away from the public.

    Oh, no shet. I guess I just had my mind shut off on that whole area. Can you blame me? I've had two motorcycles stolen in the past. They were both found over there, it's right across the Potomac from VA. One was caught riding the bike a week later, the second one was being unloaded from the back of my truck, which they also stole, because I had the bike on the back of it. The PG cops just happened to roll up on the naggers as they were unloading the bike, a$$holes dropped the bike off the ramp, turned and ran. Dumba$$es were doing this on their grandma's driveway, 4:30 in the morning. When people assume that I am racist, I have good reason to feel the way I feel.

    Almost forgot, back in '97, I came out of a bar, and this monkey was sitting on my brand new CBR900rr, screwdriver in the ignition. He was so deep in concentration, he didn't realize his buddy in some beat up Pontiac honking the horn.... I bashed him upside the head with my helmet, idiot woke up handcuffed to the gurney. Another nagger off to prison, his buddy took off.

    Damn, I don't no how to say it but it seems to be a higher class of people at that club. But they act just like your average person. My brother has been staying there all summer for work and he loves that club. But you leave that area and it turns bad in a hurry. I was really surprised at how nice it was.

    Yeah, I had a few friends try to get me to come check it out a few years ago. Forgot about that field. I'll have to check it out when I get my planes flying again. This season has been a wash.

    That's in Bowie, MD, right??? Prince Georges RC field right??? If so, I've been there once, back in the late 90's, Q40 racing. Radio took a huge dump on me, and smoked my Miss Ashley II in the dirt at almost 200. What pissed me off was, I was tied for 1st after 3 rounds, with a 1.06, my fastest time ever. Then I called my partner to a top 10 finish, and his time was a 1.05, I think......
