Well, another one is in the books!
A great time was had by all....... dinner Saturday night was fantastic!
The flight line was busy pretty much all the time..... even when we had the occasional "liquid sunshine"........
One of the highlights of the whole five days was the mini Radian limbo contest after Saturday dinner.......17-18 guys trying to get their Radian under a line roughly 24" off the ground was quite exhilarating at times!

Kudos to Charlie for another over the top GAAT. We all know he missed his true calling...should have been a grand party planner/master chef! The guy really knows how to throw a multi-day party and call it an aerotow!

Thanks also to Tony, Ed, Sean and all the other SKSS members who worked tirelessly to make this a great event.

Last but certainly not least, a huge shout-out to Alex, Jim, Tony, Sean Smokin' Charlie for all the great tows to the stratosphere. Without them we'd just be sittin' and spittin'.

Can't wait for next year,

Steve

Here's the first of many videos I'll be uploading to my youtube channel from the GAAT.

This one is pretty short since it is from Wednesday, a day before the official start. The upcoming daily event videos will be much longer. 10-20 minutes per video, I'm anticipating.

I personally enjoy longer videos, but if you guys prefer segmented videos, let me know and I can make them into 5-10 minutes chunks if you guys prefer.

Also this is my first time trying out new video software with this new camera. Sorry if they are shaky or if the editing is off. Any suggestions are welcome :-)

Nice! What's the name of the glider that's first shown in the video?

Here's my next video, "Charlie's Smokin' Tow" :-D
