"The heck with World F3B Wins, DP gets last 2m award"

Yep its official, the last AMA LSF 'king of 2m" award was handed to a very
humble, but dashing Daryl Perkins....having won this years 2m event with a
borrowed V tail Duck.

The award was handed to him at the Nats Banquet tonite along with the High
Point award, but the show was stolen by little Lee, the 10 year old from
Louisville who had put a hurt'n on some of the big dog Duck pilots during 2m.

He flew his all wood RES ship both days in Unlimited to the dismay of some
Supras, Pikes, Icons, Sharons :-)

While Lee ended up near the bottom of the score sheets, due to some bean
field zeros, his plane is still in perfect conditions....high winds and all.

Tonite he was awarded the Spirit Of Soaring award, but I have to tell you
guys, the award should have gone to Ed Wilson Pres of the Louisville Soaring
Society, because it was Ed who has mentored him, built him planes and spurred
him from D's in school to B's.

Lee is about hip tall, dark short hair and dark eyes.....which makes him the
spitting image of DP, but I checked and Daryl swears he hasn't been to
Louisville....still awful suspicious that the kid is a natural stick....:-)

By the way, Ed mentored another young boy years back.......Bruce Davidson.

Food was good and the LSF team really on top of their game tonite. Lots of
smiles and a ton of laughter....while some thought I was incredibly witty
tonite, I have to admit, its just that I stayed at Holiday Inn Express last nite.

I met Lee Friday at the RES, he is a very impressive lad and I loved
watching his slight swagger as he walked to the winches with his Sky Bench
OLY ll. Ed Wilson purchased the kit from Sky Bench and it was warming to
watch Lee fly the woody parts that I produced. Hope to see Lee back next
year.

Re: "The heck with World F3B Wins, DP gets last 2m award"

Gordy gets it part right (again).

The Hi Johnson trophy is an AMA award for the highest single score at
the Soaring Nats. AMA used to run the events with all classes flown
each day (you built a 2M, 100" and an unlimited plane every day) and
flew a couple rounds of each class daily. This resulted in each class
flying the same number of rounds, and the Hi Johnson awarded the single
highest point score of the classes.

With the advent of splitting the classes into day slots and the demise
of the 100" Standard Class, we are now able to fly more rounds of 2M
than Unlimited due to the difference in the number of pilots.

LSF approached AMA last week about how to go about changing the
criteria for the award to something more in keeping with the original
intent of the Hi Johnson trophy. After a short conversation, a process
was adopted and I will draft a letter asking to revise the criteria so
the award is independent of the number of rounds flown in each class.

This was what I meant at the workers banquet when I said Daryl won the
last Hi Johnson 2M Award, not that anything was changing as relates to
2M at the Nats.
