I don't remember them ever checking nose radius at the NATs. They COULD, but I don't remember it ever happening.
That will probably be up to the CD, Don C. and I'll bet he's reading this thread. Then again, Don's pretty easy going.



Reto, after seeing that photo of you in your Cross-Dressing, I'm offically resigning as a charter member of the Americans for Reto Fan Club.

Round 1 usa cont:
Oleg maxed
Nick tasto Maxed
Jun made 3:01 winner likely @ 3:40ish
David ashinkt burned a flt early and with a little reluctance, but it paid oiff and maxed
Oleg was oleglaunched at the tone and maxed
Lee atchison burned his first flight and relit into a thermal and flew absolutely beautifully working light air back - he was really patient and let theair mature. He really worked hard and made it with a little time to spare. Great flying juniors with 3 "G"s to start the day!

round 2

George morris 3x3 maxed al flt 3rd flt he was on the wrong side and burned a quick 30s, and relit on a flat low launch into the bottom of a nice piece and went up quickly
Jun maxed
Lee flew a very nice round but fell a little short on his second flt. Not sure if there was a jr that maxed
Lunch break now, then ashinsky, oleg, tasto fly.

Updates are coming via mobile and my hands are quite cold. Apologies for any spelling errors.

Weather is low 60s and damp air with variable air nothing more than 3 mph overcast. The swedes are sunbathing.
