Fantastic!
Knowing the unnecessary stress you had at the last practice before the selection event makes it even more impressive.
Congratulations!

Well, my launches still need a LOT of help so I hope we can keep using your F3B winch. It was great to get a couple days on it prior to the event. But my launch accident at home and then another incident before the contest while at Florida had me real gun shy so my zooms were awful through the whole event (very conservative and not optimally timed). Lucky for me that with the given conditions I could overcome that weakness.

Other help? Nothing yet. Right now I plan to unwind and take some time off. Serious practice will not start until next spring.

At some point I will be trying to push T-shirts and raffle tickets on you guys I am sure.

Thanks,
Bob

Oh that's right, hand tow. We'll have to do some of that also.

I just got the notice that my mono is at the post office now (about 6 week wait from order). Will have it for the weekend assuming the weather holds for Sunday.
