Round 9 done.
Flying 10 round
Overcast but clouds are higher. Sun is getting strong. Air warmed up.
In round 9 Dick and I started low near the field after seeing the streamer indicate a thermal. Dick was lower than I, but could not climb out. I struggled for a long time, but survived.

Lunch is served.
Group C in round 10 was won with a 4 min time. Despite the sun shining clearly now and buzzards circling. Interesting air.

Oleg and all,

Thanks for being such great host to an incredibly fun and challenging weekend. You all sure know southern hospitality and it was greatly appreciated.

The lunch was awesome and I really appreciated the service and the delicious southern style comfort food!!! Forgive me as Iím terrible at remembering names but I really appreciated the volunteers that helped served the lunch and kept the scores updated.

You folks are wonderful. Thanks so much for all you do!!

Looking forward to flying with you all again.

Cheers,

John

Thank you Lenny, David and Joey for timing.
Oleg , Dick and Jesper all did a great job to keep things running smooth.
F5j is the bomb.
