(Does anybody read this bulletin board? - I haven't heard much from you PW-5 folks!)

Please register for the 2006 PW-5 Contest via the SSA website. We are only 75 days away and I need to consider our logistics, towplanes, social events, budget, etc. to make the contest run smoothly.

Bill Snead, John Byrd and Tom McKnight have been practicing at Marfa. You can leave your sailplane here and commute via airline through El Paso(ELP) or Midland (MAF), TX.

The World Class (PW-5) US Nationals will be June 19 - 29, but we fly year-round at Marfa. Bring your crew and start soaring now over the Marfa plateau and the Davis Mountains. See the El Paso sectional or WAC CH-23 for flight planning. Bill Snead has placed some of his flights on the OLC.

You'll need oxygen as Marfa Airport (MRF) is at 5,000' msl. We use the Aerox brand. Email me for our "Pre-Marfa Projects" file for a list of items you should accomplish before hitting the road to southwest Texas.

We strongly recommend you bring a chase-crew. ELT's mandatory if no dedicated / assigned crew. Veteran Marfa pilots John Byrd and Bill Snead always have a crew (Ann & Nancy) ready to roll.

Registration for the 2006 World Class Contest is via the SSA website www.ssa.org (We need more registrations!) Please contact me if you need more info or an accommodations list. Two movies are in production near Marfa so the motels are filling up here, but Fort Davis (just 18 miles north) offers more motel & restaurant options. RV Camping (hardside only / no tents) is available on the Marfa (MRF) airport. Let me know how I can assist you!

There is more Marfa info on our website under the PW-5 button at www.flygliders.com

Again, please communicate with us so we can plan a good contest for you!
