"The eagle has landed!"


That's what Mike Iaconelli told his fans on Facebook last night when he arrived at the Classic launch area.


"Just got to Grove, OK," wrote Iaconelli. "Looking over a map and formulating a game plan for practice!"


Unofficial practice for the contenders begins tomorrow. They have not been permitted on the tournament waters since mid-December. The only official practice day is Wednesday, Feb. 20.
