Can't afford a vacation day for practice so won't make it this year. But I will plan a weekend at home to practice just to get in shape before Westmount.

Hope it a little warmer and less windy.

Nope. I may do my own practice on Saturday/Sunday that weekend. I need to practice but want to do a full contest timing not show up late and disrupt the routine. And if I don't practice then I will want to be at home with the family. Already away from them too much.

Judging???? 434 sounds like a good score to me.
