Also:  If you have a transponder feel free to run it.  There is a scoring system and it will help out with scoring.  Bring it with you when you are registering for the class so we can right down the transponder number.  Transponders are not required at this point, but it helps the show run quickly.

Practice for tomorrow the 21st has been canceled due to the awful forecast.  Practice is still on for next Friday the 28th.
