This past Sunday I had a chance to participate in the first club contest of the year. It was my second ever DLG contest, my first with a newly acquired ship. I considered this day to be more of a chance to practice and learn how work thermals. I didn't fair too well in the contest, but I did learn alot. Often the guy timing me was able to coach me on how to fly thermals, I think the longest I managed to fly was for 3:15 despite breezy conditions all day. That flight was coached by my timer Steve, who won the contest for that day. At the end of the contest I got a chance to test my other newly acquired ship, and that turned out to be much better than the one I was using, I look forward to my next contest!!

Here are the results from the contest:
