Great, bring some SVSS friends with you. I plan to make this one too. A number of us not so regular attendees are talking about it. Weather permitting, it should be a good event.

As always, its Man on Man scoring with tightly sequenced launches.

Had a great time earlier today at the contest. Beautiful calm weather (if not a little chilly early), a fantastic turnout, and a darned good challenge too . Your Hollister field is a great place to fly, thanks for your hospitality.

Yes the light air was a real challenge. I wish we had conditions like this more often to practice. It makes us better.

Congrats Bob on your #1 finish and esp. your flying in the last round. You just can't fake 14 minutes. You and I were the only planes in the air, we both headed to the same quadrant off launch and we both struggled early, but you were able to ride an incredibly weak low level thermal back to launch height over the hills. Really impressive thermaling skills.
