What’s hot, Druids or not

Proof?  that people are interest in how contest went around the world and want to see the results.  In the first few hours of sending the last SEN with links to the UK World Cup results over 150 people clicked through to go and look at how it went at the Stonehenge Cup… So tell people about your event, they are interested. Even if there were no Druids and no CHE.

The Lizard reports ….Went out flying today in West Wendover NV which is on the Utah/Nevada border along I-80. The two towns of Wendover UT and West Wendover NV (basically one community of about 6000 people) feature 5 casinos and even more motels. My flying site was about 3.5 miles away from all of these accommodations. I hope to host the inaugural Casino Cup Free Flight Model Airplane Contest the weekend of May 18-19 2019 at this venue. Hope you can make it!!

Editor Observes …

that famous  the Bonneville Salt Flats are northeast of town (about 9 miles, but are typically under water this time of year). Wendover is to Salt Lake City what Vegas is to So Cal.. they love golf tourneys etc, an airplane contest with a lot of people from elsewhere is right in their wheelhouse… get on Google Maps and see….The Lizard’s site looks good, large, dry,  no trees and not even pucker bushes. Hope he can pull it off.  Mr Lizard ,  don’t forget to put it on the America’s Cup Schedule.
