MMM Colorado World Cups Update

Hello flyers,

We have a new hotel you might consider using for this contest. It is:

Fairfield Inn & Suites Aurora/Southlands
24192 East Prospect Ave Aurora, CO 80016
For Reservations Call: 1.800.583.2137
Phone: 303.928.7500 Fax: 303.928.7579

This hotel is a located on the southern side of the shopping center near the E470 toll way. The good news about this location is the flying field is accessible with out having to use the toll road. This will save you $3.00 each day. The hotel is a full service establishment with a breakfast every morning. This will also save you the cost of this meal each day. The MMM rate is $109/ night for either a King or double queen room. No extra charge for two people. If you wish more people ask about a rollaway. This is a bit on the high side as compared to previous years, however as the economy has improved in the Denver metro area hotel prices have increased. When making your reservations please ask for the MMM Rate. Reservations must be made before June 20 to get this rate.

Other hotel choices can be found on the MMM web

On the contest side, please remember that the discount for early entry cut-off is July first. Entries received after July first will be charged the higher entry fee.

Carmen Critchlow Chased Her Last Thermal

Because of travel we missed this May 14 email from Fred Terzian.

Carmen and her husband Bob were largely responsible for me flying F1B. When I started back in Free Flight, I went to the US Free Flight Champs at Taft with an F1A model. By chance I parked near the Critchlows. The F1B group lead by Carmen seemed to be having such a good time compared to the F1A bunch, that I defected and built a F1B. Carmen’s positive attitude cheered and supported everyone she met.

from Fred Terzian

We Lost Carmen today chasing her last thermal at 4:45 p.m. No services are planned.

With Regret, Fred Terzian
