Will the show go on?

Will you still attend?

Will all the exhibitors be able to get there to set up?

I though the Farr was available in epoxy/foam sandwich? So yours is epoxy coated cellulose fibre laminate (plywood that is...)?

Spice 346 "Flat Broke"
Blaze 671 "supersonic soap dish"
Supernova 395 "dolly the sheep" (now sold but considering a second (mk3) Blaze as her replacement)

I think the internals are Ply. That's enough for iGRF to have to use his Epi-Pen.

Despite my best efforts, it remains a wood core.

Don't worry, nobody will know.....

BTW is the 'stealth' colour scheme to allow you to sneak past the Contenders unnoticed?

It just looks better, techie.

Wood just looks like 'old furniture' there's nothing wrong with wood, in it's place, we use wood cores in kiteboards, snow boards, even make marketing capitol from it, we just don't let it ruin our image..

Looking good iGRF, liking those kick bars. I guess I'm similar height to you and I really struggle to step out smoothly on the Contender. Mind you, they may offer a slight hazard when flying in from the wire, possibly the reason the Contenders shun them.
