MidSouths are this Weekend!

MidSouths are this Weekend!

All the winches have new line, new landing tapes are marked, trophies are in order, and the LASS crew members are restless! The 2006 MidSouth Soaring Championships are only a day a way and we are excited!

The weather looks to be excellent for this weekend with 10-15MPH southwest winds and sunny/partly cloudy all weekend.

Walk-up registrations are more than welcome – but get there early to avoid the rush. Plenty of frequencies are still open – but bring an alternate just in case!

See ya there! Watch the website for photos and scores.
