A great day, not too hot, some great HUGE thermals. light to moderate breezes. Congrats to new flyers in this event, Charlene Moss from Tucsson, who had bad luck by hitting a small tree on approach and did not make the field, and to Mike Roseberry who did a great job with his new model in an event he had not flown in before. Welcome to both of you.

Just read the 2012 ALES rules. I did not realize that the landing points are to be added to the pilot's normalized score and not to the number of seconds achieved for that flight. oops! Also saw some differences to the way we've been doing business versus the rules...

Looks like it'll be a fun discipline to watch grow.

Thanks Iain!

btw, I did not fly in the Jan contest because of work so I know I was not there. That score was probably from November or December 2011.

Thanks for running the show today Iain! It must've been too hot for the Prescott guys...
Great lift today for sure. I'm hoping to make the regularly scheduled April 14th Contest... Congrats to Sean, Mike, Iain and the rest of the guys for their great flying today.

Although I flew poorly, I had a great time and six rounds made it a complete day. Congrats to Charlie, Sean and Mike, saw each of them make a save from a low altitude.

Many thanks to Iain for doing all the duties of CD and trying to fly too. Went off without a hitch.

how was the June 23rd event up in PV?

Didn't see any reports - maybe I missed it - but was wondering how it went?
