Thanks to all for hosting us boys so that we could fly our toys. Great fun. AZ dust tastes weird. I need to fly more. Lex is whipped. I must of really screwed up if my karma/flying was what it was after picking up Lemon from the airport at rush hour and taking him down to the field. I thought I would celebrate the end of throwouts as we know them by trying to use 12 of them (launch height can't fix stupid). Skyler, you rock the stobel and I need to figure out how to do it too. John, thanks for the reasonably priced tail. Finch and Maurer, great flying all weekend, your time is coming. GMo, you the man but I like Charlie better.

Hey I found the chair and gave it to John Armstrong. It's safe. Learned a lot again! Thanks Greg for spotting and timing for me. Thanks Lee for the hints. I'll spend this winter practicing....This DLG thing is addictive!!!!!

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the next event!

Mike, additional correction to the list:

I flew the Super Fr3ak in all Fly off rounds


Thank you Philip, John and all the helpers for the great contest. And Charlie for having me in his house and driving me around. The desert experience was very nice.

Best,
Reto

Thanks to everyone for a fun time. I was well proud of doing so well with a beaten up B3!

Getting the dust out of everything will take some time, if it will ever be complete.

Did anyone get a picture of Charlie with the Blue Skies trophy? Please post it or send it to me so I can include it on the website.

PS. I was totally burned out on Monday but I'm already wishing there was another contest this weekend

Thanks again for everything you guys in AZ did to make the contest fun! John, Phillip, Donnie, Alan, Jen and everyone else. Also hope to see most of you at the JEM (fingers crossed).
