    I like it. Simple, straightforward and easy to follow rules. This is just the thing to get motivated for the coming season. Glad to hear that there will be a real race at Montague this year. Count me in. I'm anxious to hear more details as they develop.

    Ah! Spring is coming, anticipating some soaring - the structure for the race season is set!
    I'm looking forward to some racing, some good food, some familiar and some new faces.
    I also am glad to see an event planned at Montague. I'm in on this one too.
    Will stay tuned...
    As always, thanks to all who make these events happen.
