Louisville Soar'd :-)

Two of us participated, Dion and me...Dion did best with a 5:33 close to noon, You can see his report a few entries back.

, I got derailed with some work stuff, but finally got out at 2pm.

Two other club members flew but didn't register. Shaun Roarke and Dee Little, Shaun flew his Saggitta 600 and I flew a re built Paragon originally built and owned by a Soar Club Founder. He passed away and I bought the bits from his widow, via Jim McCarthy.

Anyway, she flys good except for in the wind it seems like the fuse is like a 2" x 4" block of drag...oh yeah it is :-).
4:47 minutes
46 degrees
Louisvile Kentucky
And she's nestled away in her custom padded wing bags till it warms up again.

Thanks Merrill and all my buds from around the country.

Congratulations to everyone that brought their airplane home in one piece.

It just means that I get to (A) fix it....or (B) get me another one. Right now I'm thinking "B"

Thanks

Thanks Merril for starting the year with such a fun contest.

Congratulations to the winners.

For the record,

Bill Jenkins, the winner in class B , flew his untrimmed E Paragon today. It flew
like a bucking wild horse initially but he tamed it down for the winning last flight of
the day. Bill is from Estell Springs near Tullahoma, Tennessee.

Here's to thermals aplenty for 2014.
