We are here to PROMOTE the grand sport of Pylon Air Racing, important fact to remember...

    Thank you Wayne! Your reply was much more politically correct than what I started typing. And I agree with you 100%

    After attending a condo association BOD meeting tonight and unloading a bunch of pent up frustration for a bunch of folks who have been intimidated homeowners...

    I'll say, I wish I was as able to restrain my lips and formulate cohesive thoughts as well as I can with my fingertips...

    Don't always do so well there either! LOL!

    Hope the new user stays here and contributes.., It is possible they are deeply involved and just frustrated with the process. We all can catch more flies with honey than a big 'ol swatter!

    Off to bed so I can tolerate the chamber tomorrow! UG!

    Personally I thought the TFL show was more in keeping with the spirit of the races than many of the stuff they have paraded in front of us in years. I loved it!
    And to see some of those aircraft take the course, even as a bronze "race" exhibition was very nice.
    I've only missed two years since 76 and have seen it wax and wane. This year was A-OK in my book. Sure I miss the days of a full field shoot-out but it was still a great gold race. Kudos to RARA.

    EXACTLY. It was far better than many of the mid-tier acro acts they have had in the past.

    I'll take all those warbirds on the course all day long, especially over some jet demo team. Not that I don't enjoy a jet demo team but, the last couple of years have seen an entire hour+ dedicated to one jet act and only two Unlimited races per day with none on Thursday. I honestly cant stand that. The races should be about the racing IMO. That being said, I really enjoyed the program this year. The TFL guys "headlining" was awesome. A great variety of planes that they flew the crap out of. Short and sweet and right back to racing. Way more enjoyable to me than any jet team I've seen. Ever. Maybe. Then to see them run them around the course was icing on the gravy.

    As a side bar, EVERY SHOW PERFORMANCE/DEMO SHOULD HAVE TO DO A LAP! ARE YOU LISTENING RARA!?
    You'll get your chance, smart guy!
