Great flying, great people, great fun

Iain's ALES contest at the Elliot bowl today featurd a lot of good air, great flying by a bunch of good and fun pilots. I had a terrific time and look forward to the next contest on March 8th. Jerry stayed out of trees and Sean of Aero-Model schooled us all despite being badly jet lagged after just flying in from Germany. Way to go Sean! I have to thank Lee for all his timing help. And I had the pleasure of meeting and timing for Don Harban. I hope to fly with you again soon, Don! And congrats to the winners and for Aero-Model's generous donation of some nice swag.

-Ed

February Results

Ed had that right - fantastic weather, great contest and fun crowd. Things got slightly out of hand when Jerry gave us tips on rolling up the tapes, so this is the first annual Jimmy Buffet "Big Roll'n Lift" Fly-in.

Good air most rounds kept the contest tight. Many times Radians made end-of-window along with the big birds. 4-points between 1st and 2nd, and 107-points between 3rd and 6th.

1st Sean Plummer - 5979
2nd Mike Roseberry - 5975
3rd Lenny Keer - 5655
4th Iain Glithero - 5614
5th Ed LaCroix - 5609
6th Lee Wolfe - 5549
7th Dan Vester - 5271
8th David Sieger - 5231
9th Craig Trout - 5217
10th Ford Rollo - 4890
11th John Hsu - 4701
12th Don Harban - 4348
13th Jerry Bunger - 4258
14th Al Lehman - 3952
15th John Irwin - 3675
