    Personally I think this would be a fun addition if they can find time in the schedule.

    Cool Re: New form of racing coming to NCAR 2019

    And the space. Where is an area wide enough to get the space between aircraft?

    Hover competition next? Good reason to have a Storch show up

    What is that, a contest to see who can fly slowest? I remember spot landing contests, flower ing, even a challenge to see who could take off, land and stop in the shortest distance. My father would take me along to these events at small strips around south/central California. Are folks still doing that stuff?

    Kevin Quinn has had couple of the big tired planes by the front pit gate for years..

    Talked to him couple years back and he has been working with RARA to bring a event here.

    So the is good news.

    His group has a annual STOL drag race event every October just north of Reno on Dead Cow lake bed "High Sierra Fly-in".

    This is a very cool event to watch out on a lakebed. It will take a little bit of thought to make it work well in this venue but Kevin is all over it. Gonna be fun. Might give the guys with the microphones something better to talk about between the biplanes and the IF1s.

    Cheers,
    Pete
