    LONE STAR STOL Competition

    The first annual LONE STAR STOL Competition is coming March 14th! The location is Gainesville Texas KGLE, about 50 miles north of DFW. It will be a standard STOL format with 4 classes.
    On Saturday night we will have a Crawfish Boil and live music after the awards banquet.
    The spectators will have a front row seat to the event, and there is ample parking on the grass for those that fly in and camp.
    Make plans to come see this great event that will introduce the flying public to the fastest growing segment of aviation!
    More details in the coming days, including a Facebook page and signup forms.

    Gainsville will be a great location. Antique Aircraft Association moved their Texas Fly In there many years ago and use the same infield as a grass runway and it is close to the terminal and the ramp. Look forward to this one Doug, can't wait. I am sure we will have a lot more discussion at our gravel bar meetings.

    A new OUTLAW Certifield class.

    Kevin better get his priorities straight, I'm sure his wife can find someone else to take her skiing.

    My only hope is a STOL date change or a weather cancelation. I think an April date would even be better. Someone talk to Doug

    I talked to your wife before I talked to Doug so I knew when the best date was for the contest. More than one way to skin a cat.

    An unnamed source is reporting that there was a secret meeting Sunday at an undisclosed Brazos location between the N Texas STOL boys regarding who will win first, second and third. Straws were allegedly drawn for placing and them a plan was formed to ensure that will happen. More reports to follow......

    Ah, I just searched Lonestar STOL. He must have changed the page. It is still a go. Glad Doug is the point man on this, he has lots to announce. Kevin better find him a stand in to take his wife skiing.

    Dang! ya'll gave me a heart attack! LOL
    It's definitely on, and I have no idea why the one page showed cancelled. I was trying to boost the event and that may have affected how it showed up in the search.
    I will be announcing the purse and some other cool stuff in the next day or so.
    Please share the Facebook page with all your friends and help me get the word out!

    Are you going to give Kevin's wife a purse if he shows up? Gucci? Coach?

    I think Eaton can get you a great deal on Coach purses !!!!
    I may be wrong but that probably won't stop me from arguing about it.

    I was about to post the same thing.

    I did see this posted on social media.

    I am sure Doug will keep us posted here but I will as a follow up. Have to keep Kevin updated on what he is missing.
