Another fall Festival has been closed in the books. 2016 was a very wild year for the weather. It was cool and breezy on Saturday and Sunday was more of a continual wind. It was nice to have the cool temperatures. Due to the drought we did not have the plush green grass we have been accustomed to for the landing areas. It was a good move to switch over to the landing tapes. Painted areas on the dried grass would have never lasted for the weekend. This year Adam ran another smooth event. He changed the landing foul line to allow pilots to stand closer to the center area of the landing spots. I did not hear any complaints which was nice. The longer flights also placed the emphasis on flying more than landing better. Congratulations to Bob McGowan for the win. It was so nice to see his dad be there with him on this weekend. Very cool.

ALES was also run on Friday was a separate event. Kent Nogey and Tim Johnson were the CDís on this one. We ran 5 rounds of 8 minutes. If you have not been to an ALES event this is the one to attend. 10 pilots launching all within a 20 second window is amazing.

My yearly visit with Col. Robert Thacker was so much fun. He is 98.8 years young and still full of life and spunk. He is still walking 2 miles a day. I have never seen black poly slacks last as long as his have. Each year the high water mark creeps up a little more. In another few wash cycles they will become knickers! I have been fortunate to have known him for 45 years.
