It is time for your annual pilgrimage to the Texas Hill Country...Chapter 107 is again hosting Hammerfest in Llano, Texas (KAQO). We will open this outstanding event with practice on Thursday, 15 October. Contest flying will be Friday and Saturday 16-17 October with Sunday the 18th as a weather back-up day. These dates should avoid the worst of the Texas heat, let you relax after Nationals and give everyone one last chance to enjoy a contest before winter arrives.
In the interest of maximum participation we will also fly the "Legacy" category at our contest again this year. So, if you're a semi-retired competition pilot get up off the couch and back in the game. See details on the Legacy Category here...https://www.iac.org/news/2019-05-11-the-new-iac-legacy-category
Llano offers plenty of accommodations, both hotel and B&B. While there is no official contest hotel many of the local options are affordable and convenient. A quick perusal of several websites revealed the following options (in no particular order):
Best Western Llano $110 per night (325) 247-4101
Lone Star Inn $75 per night (325) 247-4111
Day's Inn $121 per night (325) 247-1141
Llano Motel ?? (325) 247-5786
There were also numerous B&B type options in town and nearby. Please do your own research and choose the option that's best for you.
Stand-by for details on the social side, but plan on pizza on Thursday (it's kinda a tradition). Many pilots have reported that the main reason they make it to our contest is the cookies. They are that good
