Svss ales 08/26/17


Well, it was hot, but at least we had a bit of wind, more than anticipated actually. Everybody handled it well though. We had 9 pilots total, so the flight groups consisted of a group of 4 and a group of 5. We flew a total of 4 rounds, simply because of the potential heat. We started the first group at 10am, right on time, and progressed very quickly through all 4 rounds. My thanks to Jonathan Heritage for coming down expressly to open the containers for me, Scott Woordward for closing htem up so i coudl get out of there, and to everyone who helped with setup and takedown! Some "stranger" showed up and, while he didn't kick everyone's butt, he just patiently flew his plane, made sure he followed the club rules, and in general showed he's still got it! So who was that masked man?...Read on...

Oh yeah, the order of finish:
OPEN
1st - Dudley Dufort 4148 <--- Masked Man...Flew just like he'd never been away, it was great to see him at SVSS again!
2nd - Marty Falarski 4138
3rd - Scott Woodward 4115

FOAMY
1st - Chad Sanders 2847

Scores are posted on the SVSS website!

Since Chad Sanders was the only Foamy competitor, we decided to award a "classless" contest within a contest only for members of the Sanders family (Hmmm, somehow that doesn't come out quite right...Sigh):
1st - Brian Sanders 3387 <---Got a 2nd place medallion within his family, only because Chad actually did earn a 1st
2nd - Tyler Sanders 3177 <--- Got a 3rd place medallion within his family for a similar reason
3rd - Chad Sanders 2847 <---Earned 1st place in the "real" competition so he got a 1st place medallion

Again thanks to all who helped, all who flew, and a special thanks to the Sanders ladies as they helped time for anyone that needed a timer! Get well Aric, we missed ya'!
