We all have a serious case of F3K overload but in a good way. The team now has the hotel to ourselves, it is 11:00. We are spread out in the lobby with a bucket of local beverages and marking all the models in preparation for the check in tomorrow. After the contest today we had a team meeting so Mike and I could address all questions at the team managers meeting. The pre contest had more than it's share of problems and glitches but the intention is to prepare the contestants and organizers for the big dance. It was a looong meeting but the organizers were open all the suggestions and addressed every question. I really liked the fact that they took notes and asked us give them a day to discuss things with the jury before they made some decisions. They scheduled another TM meeting tomorrow to ensure we are all happy.

I think as a team we performed really well over the last 2 days and I am going into the WC with high confidence in the champions we selected to represent the USA. The parents and helpers that came along have proven to be a valuable asset in taking care of EVERYTHING other than flying. It is great to have a support system here to ensure our bellies are full, we are well hydrated and models are repaired and charged.

Tomorrow morning we have an appointment for model check in at 09:30. We also have the flying field to ourselves for official practice from 2:00-2:30. The flying site in on a full scale airfield so they will have an area marked for open flying all day. It should be a nice day to loosen up and hang with friends.

Did David knockout (literally) the rest of this competition with that cursed black Stobel? sorry, I couldn't resist. Jr. and Cherry from the Sonic in York, SC say congrats! Nice flying guys. Reading the posts at night time, it sounds like a drinking and partying event with 2 dlg contests thrown in. Keep making us proud boys!

Thanks for the updates Bruce, (Happy B Day too).
Make sure the team stays rested and focused on the task ahead. It's just like flying here at home, the team kicks our butts here and can do it to the rest of the world there as well!
