I have tomorrow off to recooperate so I have a chance to post these tonight. Otherwise it would have been a couple of days.

This years "No Excuses Sailplane" had several bests in my eyes. We had the best weather of any of the years so far. Lite and varible winds with an over night low in the upper 40's and the forecast high in the middle 80's. The thermals were abundandt and fairly strong with a few of them quite strong. I have one flight that I had to ride my flaps for over 6 minutes out of the 12 minute flight to get down on time.
Next, we had the biggest number of competitors we ever had. We had around 45 pilots sign up and take score sheets with 39 of them turning in score sheets. I assume the others had mechanical problems or scratched out after some of the mishaps on landing.

So, Here are the top 5. The Max possible score was 2920 (4 flights at 730 each)

5th place-Gary Grose with 2895.

4th place-Ernie Schlumberger with 2912.

3rd Place-George Parks with 2914.

2nd place-Mike Cramer with 2915.

!st Place-Jeff Carr with a near perfect score of 2918!

I'd like to thank all of the pilots for coming out and making it a great contest and hope to see you next year!

Heres the full results for everyone to see.
