it's not about the medals; go out there and have fun. make progress, learn a few things, have one heck of a time, because that's all that matters.

This thread will be used for all the Oldies but Goodies events, since my estimation is that we will not need full trial event threads for them. First post edited to improve readability.

okay so ive got one question abt the paper airplane rules it says that theres a designated area to fly and it must be flown in that area. it also says the launch must b with one hand with no assistance from the other or any other person. what happens if you want to launch from higher up, will they allow like chairs or whatever?

I feel like they wouldn't let you do this. They dont allow this for gliders too.

You don't need the extra height if you have a football player come to nats with you just to throw the plane. :lol:

If you don't want to go through that, you can get swole yourself :P
