it was a total pleasure to be at the contest despite some negative luck -

The repair on Mr DuVals Xplorer was pretty cool. I admit I doubted Pauls ability to get that done before launch...you can hear him taunting me at the very end of the video - I wish I had left it on longer but my phone was almost dead and I was worried about not being able to save the footage. Paul rocked that repair pretty well I admit and the experience handed over to a new pilot was positive.

In the end can you ask for much more ? I got to fly with my friends, made some new ones and together as a team we learned and extended some positive experiences between us.

Just finished unloading the RMSA trailer, and there is a spool of 1.4 orange line 400 yds that isn't being claimed by anyone in the club. If you are missing it, PM me and I will get it back to you....

Ok, I fixed broken booms better than I flew in the contest, but I really had a great time!

I was very proud that Tristan was able to make the fly-offs and he is really pumped up to practice hard this year as he will be elegible for F3J as a Junior once again.

F3J in LA would be awesome, I am in for sure!

Had a great time with our team Jeff Duval, David Beardsley and David Webb
Thanks to everyone for another spectacular event.

Also, Great win for you Joe W. very impressive from the first throw I saw you do (20 ish minute hand launch)

Yes!

Febuary 20th and the 21st for the F3J contest. Followed by the Southwest Classic on the 22nd and 23rd.

Field should be avialable for practice on the 19th.
