"It would be great to have more aircraft in the same category"

Thats exactly why I registered!

OK.  I also am pre-registered.  And since my old 172 cruises along at about 100mph I would ask Mr. Gilson to please deploy a drag chute to make it fair..... ;)

How did you manage to put other planes in my class?  The Rocket should be in a class by itself!

Stephen - I have your registration information and will resend it as well.

SARL is still pretty new and a lot of the back end management functions are still in need of development.  When you register, it has to be manually entered in another database to show up on the "Who's In" list.  I imagine that will be automated in the not too distant future.

I guess I really shouldn't worry.....If Al and the Rocket are in, they let anyone in, so......no worries here!!!! :)
