Great news about this contest. Chris Lee, the guy that has won the last 50 Darts OVSS contests and current National Champion has confirmed he won't be able to make it.

Now someone else can win it.

See you all there.

Luring you into complacency. Just when you thought it was safe to get in the water again...

The weather is looking super!

a cool light wind out of the north!

I know everyone has there own favorites as far as weather sites go, but I have found the ones below to be pretty much right on as far as wind direction and speed goes
then click on the "hourly" link under "saturday" and "sunday" to get the winds
This site gives the overall picture, with fronts, Highs, Lows, etc
This is a forecast map at Wind Mapper, It is very graphic

below are some slices in time that I took off the above two sites Thursday afternnon. I will do the same on Friday afternoon and post them again. You may have to click on the previews to bring the full size graphics up in order to see the details, basically they are the forecasts from the above sites

Like I said above, a cool light wind out of the North

The pinterest link I posted earlier might not work today. Not good enough internet out here for me to upload pictures of score printouts.

Ron Mong in first after round 1. 13 pilots. I am in 8th.

Top 5 from Saturday, as reported by MVSA's Glauco Lago

1 Jerry Shape (Aspire ST)
2 Marc Gellart (Supra Pro)
3 Mike Johnson (Perfect ET)
4 Ron Mong (Tragi 801X)
5 Glauco Lago (Aspire)

8 rounds of 10 minutes, sounds like mostly nice thermaling conditions, not much movement after the early morning "dead air hang" round until the last couple rounds.
