Let me tell you my best part. Just before the last round, All Up Last Down, JonL was telling Alex Taylor that if he lived his life all over again and added up the years, that he still wouldn’t have many years as “Old Jim” (me).

We started the last round and JonF called for me. My first flight was ok I guess, I can’t remember. Then on the second flight JonF directed me over to some good lift. The lift had been spotty and light in the last part of the day. I found the lift and began to circle and on each circle my Vandal kept climbing. Jon kept telling me to lengthen out on the downwind leg, and I kept climbing. I had launched from the back of the pack so to speak and all the other guys had gone straight up wind so they didn’t notice me climbing back there. Then JonF started snickering and someone noticed and let out the alarm, but it was too late. They couldn’t get to what was one of the better thermals of the day. To my great surprise the other guys all came down while Jon helped me burry those young wiper-snappers. Revenge is so sweet.

I started walking off the field when Mike told me there was still one more flight. I must have thought the second coming had arrived and it was all over, but I got in one more round that wasn’t so spectacular. My best experience yet. Thanks to Jon Finch.

Jim, I've never been happier to be buried by somebody in a round. That was truly some fantastic flying you did. Excellent work.

I have to hand it to Carlos. For his first time flying DLG and being in a contest, he did great. He will be nipping at your guys heels in no time.

When I was timing for him and the round ended he was having so much fun he just kept flying. I had to tell him that if he was still flying after the 30 second window closed he would get a 0. He got it down in a hurry but that is a tuff way to learn the rules while you are in a contest. All new stuff to him.

Good job Carlos.

Ken, I am so glad you came and I wish I could have flown a bit more with you. And thanks for all you help getting the sound system set up.

A different attitude to RC

Even though I seem to be going steadily down in the rankings, it was a fun day.

Very rewarding - yes, rewarding - to be beaten in the AULD by Jim. Well done!!

Really did not like the snow. Difficult to get a solid footing and not to mention potential damage to the plane from landing on the glass like shards!

Welcome to all the new pilots! Looking forward to flying more with everyone.
