Object is 3 10 minute flights, landing in the Boundaries of Indiana. Open flight order, unlimited attempts, 2 hour window. Trophies through 3rd. BBQ dinner will be served at the conclusion of Old Timer Glider. Jim McCarthy is in charge and Johnny Diniz is coming back to cook the meat!! More info coming I am sure Jim will ask for an idea on the head count.
