Thanks for posting and hosting. Another fun one! I thought the 30MM planes in the first round didn't do too bad. Didn't realize how fast the yak9t was relative to the G2. Those La7s were tough. Had more players stayed in the 2nd part they may evened the score a bit. I'm curious if making if start at 10 might bring more players? Idk...

I know it might be extra work, maybe too much... but would you consider adding up all of the score pages for a total at the end of the year?

Can't wait till the next one!  :airplane:  :joystick:

I tried that once. The result from the community, for whatever reason, was not good.

I'll have to give that some thought. How about a "quid pro quo"? You bring more pilots, I'll get you're year stats.

Man I'd make it a point to come to 1 a week.  I haven't been there in awhile while my kids were super young, and I forgot how much action there is.  I will definitely make a point of promoting it in the arena beforehand.

Thanks for putting them together.  It's appreciated.

Hmm Interesting about the 10 thing.. what If the latewar planes were done first? Idk, just spit balling.

I'm trying to, that's why I do a post on the main forum because who know how many people see this part of the forum. The place has been real quiet though in terms of activity and posters. I try to tell folks in the game as well when I can.

Are you not planning on hosting anymore for a while?
