Congratulations Rick!!!

Rick has been flying at Visailia the last four years. He moved up from 44th last year, to 35th this year. GREAT Job. Moving up each year shows improvement. Keep up the good work.

It would be cool to join you next year, I will have to work on that. Good job!!!!!!!

Doug

Thanks Doug. I was in 20th after the 3rd round. Then I blew the next 3 rounds and caught my last round. Not too bad for dropping 3 out of 8 rounds. Still I should have done better.

As for next year I have a plane just for you. Ill bring it home and we can build it together.

Be home this next Sunday See you at the meeting.

Scott,

The real frustrating part was the 3rd round when I landed out. I landed on the dirt road which defines the boundary of the LZ. Had I scratched just another foot I would have made my time which was 9:37 out of a 10:00 minute round. But it didnt matter as the next 2 rounds I launched in sink and had a 4:37 and a 6:50. I definitely need more practice.

See the Cajon effect strikes again-

You find the only dirt road around instead of the smoother surface- just like Cajon....

Been there....
