The pilot meeting was a little slow starting,. Almost like herding cats. Mike Lee did a great job getting the guys together and going over the agenda for the day. As we had 8 volunteers it was decided to start with duration and then distance. After 2 rounds of duration, the volunteers were put to work. We were able to complete 5 rounds of distance with Mike Lachowski achieving the best of the day with 32.

I tried to get each pilot as they were flying. Sorry if I missed your favorite. I'll try harder tomorrow.

Last of the photos. I ran out of memory. All in all it a was a great day and very challenging conditions. The pilot worked hard. Whoever makes the team will surely represent the USA well and will give the world a run for their money.

Hi Dennis Everette,

Uh, sorry but you don't get off that easy. You were a BIG part of this event along with the other people who volunteered to work the event. Beleive me when I say, we can't do it without you! I know that I speak for each and every pilot and team member out there when I say your assistance is genuinely appreciated. So, it is the F3B crowd that that is honored to have you there with us. You did a great job!

Although, I'm still scratching my head wondering how I got talked into this....

If someone can, please get a pic with each pilot and their plane. Would be great to hear who is flying what!

HELPERS were in full force both Sat and Sun! I made some new friends with them. Really cool people ! Thank you all so much. We were going to be short of help but because some selfless people showed up last minutr we have had 2 great days of F3B. For those that know and have experienced B you understand that it's not possible without the helpers. You should feel good about your service. Thank you guys.

One more day and we are set on helpers! :-)

Wow!

Most popular believe me or no are the Shooters, 3 pilots flying them. Tied at two are regular Fosas, Precisions and Freestyler 4. At one of each there is a Fosa Lift, Freestyler 3, Tracer/Target.
