It is in fact a 705x.

After round 4 I am in 7th. Ron Mong and Marc are neck and neck for first.

Sweet conditions. Lot of maxes

Excellent.
Your reporting reminds me of listening to horse races on the radio as a child.

Sorry guys, my phone battery went empty.

2nd to last round was a real shake up. Tough air and lots of guys took a big points hit.

Last round was back to great air but I didn't quite get in it.

1st Jerry Shape
2nd Ron Mong
3rd Norm Poti
4rth Marc Gellart
5th me

Contest very well ran. I really like the Dayton field. It had been 10 years since I had been here last. Ironically I had not flown the OVSS Dayton contest till today. Flown lots of other Dayton contents just not the OVSS one.

This was my first OVSS contest for almost 4 years. I wasn't sure I would be at this one till last night. had family in town for my daughters birthday party yesterday and I thought they we're staying today too. Turns out they had another birthday party today and oppertunity to make Dayton popped up.

I didn't record as much media at this contest as I had hoped. The Verizon at the field was slow but I have since uploaded a few pictures to my pinterest account I linked to in the first page.

I posted a real short video of some launching.

Jerry thanks for CDing Sunday. Jerry made it easy by calling 13 minute tasks all day. I like it when the times don't change round to round because that makes me less likely to screw something up.

I'd like to thank everyone that timed for me yesterday. That would be Jerry Shape, Don Harris, and in particular Ron Mong. Ron timed for me most of the rounds of the contest. I learned a lot at this contest and that was my primary objective. Thanks everyone for assisting in my continued learning.

It was a real treat to see Walt Schmol again. I used to fly a lot of hand launch and Walt was a fixture of Ohio hand launch contests with his Zepher. We used to work together a bunch back in the day.

I had a blast flying with everyone Saturday. Sorry I couldn't make it Sunday. I made changes to my plans due to that annoying thing called work.

Great flying Jerry! Congrats.

Results are up on DARTS webpage along with lots of pictures. Can't thank Joe Mekina enough, he did all the scoring , set up the flight groups, took all the pictures all posted all the stats. Way more than I expected. I am really blown away with it all. Jerry
