That was a great morning. Weather stunk, my flying stunk, both thermals stunk (I think there were only two all day long), but the company was fabulous! Thanks for putting this together guys!

My muscles are tightening up. That was the most exercise I have had in a longtime. Pathetic I know, but from here on out, when I need to fly DLG, I can just tell my wife I am going out for some "exercise".

Had a great time today! The snow made for interesting launches and quick turnarounds. All the ground covered in a reflective white and the lack of a sun made for very few thermals. Great contest conditions. Even greater conditions for a sub 9 oz Helios... I couldn't hang in the same air as Lemon for most of the day.

The advantage of being the last one to leave is that I inherited some black clipboards, a stop watch with blue tape on the back and half of JonL pair of gloves.

What a great day. Had lots of fun and now I am all tired out; it feels good.

Yep, that was a FUN day. Yo Finch, are going to make a video? If so I have a few pics and video clips you can have. I can drop box them for you if you want.

Sucks to be Finch usually, today even more so!!!!!


BAM!!!!!! My 1st real win!!!!! Yippie.

I think the day went as well as it could have. Was plenty warm, the snow made for soft landings when we fell on our s Finch launching and then proceeding to twist into the ground and then stay there, TGHPOUDLG coming in spite of a death in the family, "Make sure your wife gets LOTS of whatever she wants", Brandon showing up to fly, and flying well, PT for running a very great contest, Steve and Ken, thanks for coming, it is great to have new blood, and you guys are improving fast, Nice Jim for a great first contest as Utah DLG president... Mmmmmmmmmmm, and for ALMOST making it through a contest w/o breaking a plane.

And lets not forget ME and my BIG WIN!!!!!!!! I tried to screw it up a few times, but looks like I will need to try harder next time. Cant say enough good about the Helios! It was really the Helios with the win, but lets not focus on that!


Missed AD and Russ, and T.S.S.P.

I am very excited for next year for Utah DLG, we have a great core and it is nice to see some new blood and hope we continue to attract and retain great people.

Perfect day!

PS, I seldom ever get the k in a round, and apparently thats important!

PS, B w/ a goose egg AND still beat SJ!!!! KAAAAAABAAAAM!!!!!

And congrats to Nice Jim for finishing less than last!!!!!

The contest must have been rigged...

I lost the contest in the first round when I threw away my 1000 by throwing a third time...

No, it was rigged. We all saw those black helicopters Jon!

Yes, I think I finally have the Helios dialed in! Good news for me is that conditions never changed today, and so I never had to change flying settings or style. May be a while till I fly in a contest like that again. But....... I accomplished one of my Krazy goals for the year, win a local contest! Yippie, next years goal will be to beat #11 or #5 in a BS event.
