I really hope the precision flying catches on more here in the USA. The freestyle is great but I've always been more into the precision stuff.

Fully agreed. I really enjoy it. Theres always room for more practice for improvment (a lot of room in my case). I also enjoy the building/trimming aspect of learning precision flying. You learn what does what and how, just with expiermenting and flying. Specifically with the indoor models. Being foam, the amount of stuff to try is endless.

Congrats all! I had a blast on Friday. That 6 of 4... hehe that was one of the funniest things to watch.
Out of curiosity... how did JAS place? I could have sworn that since he wasnt present for the last round, all of his scores were to be thrown out...

Did we all hear incorrectly?

Ask Jorgensen to know for sure.

How did the judging go? I would like to hear some feedback on the judging format used. FWIW, the IMAC Southeast put on incredibly successful judge instructor/certification weekend seminar a couple weeks ago and it was a very unifying experience.
