Dick, hope you have a safe drive home. Our prayers are with you and your family. It was sad to see you leave, but I agree with Dave, family matters more than toy airplanes.

Really sorry to hear about your loss Dick. Drive safe.

Hope you all get to do some flying soon. Living vicariously doesn't work when you guys are grounded.

Good luck to everyone and keep figthing for those 1000pts!

Question: If airforce one can't leave on schedule, is than a TFR flight restriction automatically extended? How do we hobby people know then when the TFR is over and toy plane operations can resume?

It started to rain half-way through round 11. We've had to stop flying, cover up the planes, and hold on to the canopies. The forecast says there is a chance of thunderstorms for the rest of the evening. Hoping it will stop and hold until nightfall so we can get more than a round and a half of flying in!

Finished with round 11 finally. The weather is acting very fickle and it's not clear whether we will continue to fly today or not. I'll keep you updated if any decisions are made. In the meantime, here are scores up through round 11.
