Yeah, that would be good for about 8th place.

Practice, practice, practice. And then practice some more. I'm trying to get out every day. Today was windier than I would have liked, so I just shot landings, about 4 batteries worth. (probably 12 1 min. flights). Good to practice in all wind conditions.

I'd have to say there is no doubt about it but that was a trouncing in Round 6 by a young sixteen year old.

What's going on there? 32 pilots out of 40 got a zero landing, and only Jon maxed the time ? The next closest time in Jon's group was a 6:51, and the next closest time in the whole ROUND was a 7:56 ???

Is there bad weather there? Anyone know ?

Strange things are afoot at the Circle K, Bill.

The wind actually blew around here yesterday, and most ALES ships cannot ballast I am guessing. Going this AM to watch a bit, will check on your young man.
