G’ Eggloft Altitude
Sport Scale
‘A’ Boost Glide
‘C’ Streamer Duration
Set Duration, with a target time of 55 seconds.

If you have any questions regarding this upcoming contest, please contact Randall Redd

Google maps is wrong, as are most GPS units-they will send you to our post office in Grantsville, so to use your GPS, please use :

N: 40 degrees 38.784'
W: 112 degrees 31.475 '

Better yet, just:
Drive to exit 84 on I-80, and go SOUTH (away from the Great Salt Lake) for 5 miles on hiway 138 and we are on the east side (toward Salt Lake City)of the highway. Watch for cattle on the road, as they get out of their designated spaces frequently, and they are not very smart..
