Sunday 1-26 contest report

Sunday looked great, with the exception of the local pine trees bending and swaying in the breeze. After 4 out of the 7 PW-5's landed back at BHSS for relights, and with measured winds aloft at 26 knots, CD Sheppe waited as long as possible but finally cancelled the 1-26 task for safety reasons. The PW-5 task was cancelled shortly afterwards.

With frontal passage in the wee moring hours of Monday, better conditions are expected for the next three days. We have to have at least TWO more contest days to have a contest!

All the best to past Association President Kevin Anderson, who underwent surgery last week. I know he is following the contest closely on-line while on the mend, and we wish him a speedy recovery and return to the cockpit. Kevin, your #192 is in VERY capable hands with Key Dismukes- first place for 5 days in a row!

Stay tuned for more updates,

Jeff Daye, #039
