Man am I sore. By the last round in the flyoff I was just about out of stuff.
Congrats to Jeff, Bruce, and Frank. Big thanks to the NASA crowd for the great flying field, and hats off to CD Burt Watkins for a perfectly run contest. Thank you to our generous sponsor Cliff Whitney and the raffle, over $1200 raised for the F3K team fund!
And my thanks to my caller for the weekend Mike Livers who made the trip up from Florida and saved me from many a bad flight and who flew very well himself.
This is now a contest not to be missed, see everyone at San Felasco in February!

Totally awesome Atlanta crew!!!! 1,200 bucks is tremendous. We can't thank you enough.

Congrats to Jeff! Awesome flying. Congratulations to Bruce and Frank too. Must have been a close and hard fought battle.

Also really cool idea for getting new guys to compete. Best first contest ever award, love it.

Happy Veterans Day everyone.

Mike

Had an awesome time at the event, Burt thanks for all the explanations during the contest, Bruce thanks for letting me do some timing for you, I learnt so much from you and picked up some awesome tips, Russ and Jeff thanks for your hospitality and letting me sit and chat with you guys! Cliff it was great meeting you too.

I hope to make the Florida event in Feb, this time I hope to be able to fly in it.

All the best
