    Check out the lookieloos at the old Pylon 6. That situation got really dangerous, and impossible for the pylon judges. Eventually RARA and the airport got control over that land, put up fences, and got things under control. It was nice out there for a few years, before the general public found out about it.

    A bit before my time but I've heard stories. This was the first pylon I was assigned to after my first year as a judge (2002) and the old salts out on Outer 6 were very happy that RTAA took over the land and fenced it. Got pretty wild at times. Talk about trying to herd cats!

    Things were out of control all over the back of the course. This was Lefty on the way to his Championship. Photo from a much older Pylon 2.

    Dangerous...

    Oh ya, the Wild West days.

    The hill is my best memory, standing in the bed of my truck and heres comes Lefty.

    Several other racers showed their skill level.

    "Wanna play chicken, wait till next lap"

    I have to admit, I ducked more than once.

    Early 80s, while VOS still had a old barb wire fence you could easily get under.

    We'd get under the fence for the Sunday gold race. Same adrenaline there in the middle of the flight line. I took several rolls of 35mm slides hunkered down while there "put a bead" on us. Slide scanner is on my wish list, and I will share here.

    I know, now that I am older I have a bit more sense than being a 20 something punk.

    But the memories are permanently burned into my brain.

    Hopefuly they are still around 30 years from now when I am in my rocking chair at 95 sneaking a shot of Jager and telling stories to the grand kids.

    Whoa. Thatís crazy. We always hung out in the VOS back then. It would be another 3 or 4 years before I started ducking the barbed wire fence to get out on the course.
    You'll get your chance, smart guy!
