The weather is looking good for this thing today. It'll be interesting to see what Speed comes up with. Landings could be just about anything! It could even have how many loops can you do in 2 minutes.

Here's a flight from last evening about 6:15 or so. It's my first attempt at putting the data in Google earth. I wonder what caused the path to be interrupted right at the start there.

Now that I think about it, that's where the motor shut off. Strange.

Saturday the 25th is the last scheduled contest of our season.
Pilots meeting 10am
Long range forecast looks good.
Our own John "JailBirdofTime" Van Hassel is the CD.

October 25 Contest

Hi All--

Here's what I propose for the October 25 contest. Let me know if anyone has a strong desire for something different:

1. I think we should stick with our current rule regarding restarts (zero for the flight if a restart is taken) for this contest. We can debate the merits of changing to the one minute penalty over the winter and then make a decision about which system to use next season.

2. I think we should set the pilot's meeting/start time for 10:00 am since it's getting to be the time of year when it may be a bit on the chilly side early in the morning.

3. Tasks as follows: 6-8-8-10-10-10.

If that works for everyone, all we have to do is keep our fingers crossed that we aren't flying in snow. So far, the long range forecast looks good.--JVH.

Perfect. I will get blank score cards printed for two and three groups and you can decide that morning which ones you'd like to hand out

You know, I just lurk on this thread as a guy who lives in Montana and has some vague interest in ALES, but I'm gonna say congratulations, anyway! Nice antelope!

Like Xeric, this summer has been mostly one of "lurking" on this thread. The Brother's Three here in the Gallatin Valley have had very little opportunity to do any kind of flying this summer, but it's mighty kind of all on this and the sloping thread to allow us to 'lurk' and stay in touch.
Oh Ya! Congrats Jon!
Blessings,
Arlen

* Well, need to put on the leathers for what may be my last ride for the year.

It's that 'global warming' thing. Kalispell is supposed to be even warmer. Can't wait for spring. Er... summer no wait, winter maybe?
