SVSS Monthly ALES Contest – July 25th in Davis, CA

SVSS, Good for what ALES you!

Here we are approaching the middle of our ALES season and this Saturday looks like a typical day for Davis in July. Winds should be light, with temps climbing into the low 90’s. Be sure to start hydrating early. Have a cool glass of water before you leave for the field and be sure to stop by the cooler if you need a soda or water.

Aric will be the CD this month and we will have our Pilots’ Meeting will be at 9:45 and first flights at 10am. Entry fee is $10 and AMA membership is required. Kevin will be overseeing the lunch prep, we’ll be building our own sandwiches, all for just $5

For directions, visit our website at http://www.svss.org/

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Great day at the field. 3-5mph winds, temps in the high 80's, and 20 pilots to fly with.

Top finishers today in the Radian Class were Kevin Wilmunder, Ron Kucera, and Ram Venkataraman. Even if Kevin weren't my son, I think I would have still noted that his score flying a Radian was second best overall including against the Opens. In the Opens, top honors to Jim Thomas, Don McCullough, and I managed third.

Special thanks to everyone who helped put out landing tapes, rolled up the PA wires, helped put away chairs, rolled the landing tapes, etc. It is great to fly with such a group of competitive and friendly pilots.

Had fun in my first-ever electric contest. I really like the way the e-Xplorer 2.5 fuse flew with the X4-v1 wing. I guess that means I've come over to the Dark Side now . Electrics-who woulda thought--yikes.

Yeah I enjoyed seeing how close I could fly to the guys next to me on launch. Almost like combat flying. Don't you get extra points for that?
