TK - I know you weren't there, but there was nothing man on man about the uber windy rounds at this last masters. Even at the masters, typical launch window was 1:30 to 2 min. Even in normal wind, still, like Josh mentions, not man on man. It works in J because not being ready to launch costs points, so everyone (somehow) seems to be ready at the horn. At the Nats, or the Masters, the launch nazi tells the pilot to launch... he taps the pedal... looks at this airplane.... taps the pedal... looks at his tranny.... pins the transmitter against his body and uses his left hand to hit some switch.... he looks around in the sky to see who's where and if they're going up.... taps up to the begin of launch tension cuz it has all gone away... looks back at his airplane and wiggles something.... looks back into the sky in the other direction to see if anyone is going up over there.... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did I mention???? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
