Awesome contest!

I finally made it down to Wilson this year. Great field, super-great food, and literally *tons* of free peanuts! The DESS guys really put on a great event.

Conditions were challenging for most of the weekend, but we dodged the storm system on Sunday (or it dodged us) so everything remained dry. Our team ("Cannon Fodder") did not place highly, but we remain undaunted, and plan to triumph next year. I damaged my first-string plane in a midair during the second round of the flyoffs, and put my backup in a tree in the last round, but still had a blast.

Thanks to Dan for his tree-climbing skills, to Paul for being my timer in the flyoffs, and to the DESS guys for an overall wonderful contest.

I'm looking forward to next year's festivities.
