A note on soaring's reputation :)

I happened to be in Muncie yesterday for the Muncie Edurathon triathlon,
which was held at the Prairie Creek Reservoir just south of the AMA.
After the race, the wife and I stopped by the AMA to see what was going
on. Pylon racing and combat.

We sat down and watched a couple of combat heats (lots of buzzing), and
nearby one combat guy was showing off his reclining camp chairs to
another guy.

Guy 1: "Hey, take a look at these things! They recline and everything"

Guy 2: "Oh man, those look like the chairs those LSF guys sit in" (makes
motion like he's laying back, looking up with a transmitter in his
hands) "You know, those guys we have to nudge every once in a while to
make sure they're still alive"

Guy 1: "Hahahaha"

Then Guy 1 lays back in his reclining camp chair and waits to fly for
what I assume is well over an hour :)
