More pics from SVSS March 3rd 2012, ALES contest, from Dave F.

Hi, "Winch In the Nose" Glider Guiders,
Here are some pictures from the 3-3-2012 SVSS ALES contest.

Tammy and I had a great time at the field Saturday (3-3-2012).
This was Tammy's first contest ever, and my first time competing after a few years absence.
Tammy was an excellent timer and helped me find great lift during the contest.
She really got into the competition and was keen on giving me good advice to help me improve my scores.

She also did very well flying my Radian after the contest, and got the thrill of catching and riding her first thermal.
I also showed her how to do her first aerobatic maneuver, and got her to do a few loops.
Tammy is quite a talented beginner, I think we'll be seeing more of her at the field.

I'm loving my new Hitec Eclipse 7 pro Radio.

My thanks to SVSS and the organizers/participants in the contest.
Thanks also for the tasty $5 lunch.
Good times

Happy Landings...
Dave F.
