I havenít updated my blog page in a while, so thought Iíd take a moment to do so now. Today Iíll just give a rundown of whatís been going on with me this year mostly as it pertains to RC Groups and my RC activities. My RC focus the last couple of years has been AMA pylon racing. Though Iíll never totally get out of F5D pylon and it will always have a place in my heart (I still have three different F5D planes I am flying today), Iíve gotten a bit away from that because the opportunities for AMA pylon racing here in the states are so competitive and plentiful! Iíve been fortunate enough to compete at a variety of venues including Phoenix, AZ, Wichita, KS, three different races at the AMA HQ in Muncie, IN (including the Natís of course), Cincinnati, OH, Michigan and finally, the ďChampĒ race in North Carolina!

Over the course of a total of eight races this year my main interest has been Quarter 40 (Q40) powered by .40 cu in glow engines. Sounds rather sedate, but Q40 planes have been ďradaredĒ at over 200mph on the course!

The summer really got crazy when we decided a change of pace would be good and my wife took a new position at a small community college in West Virginia! She relocated in July while I stayed back in Champaign to sell and manage the house, but weíll be reunited in our new home at the end of October! Through this, I managed to hold to my pylon schedule, though the last couple of months have been hectic to say the least!

Iíll probably be less active on RC Groups for a while until we get settled (and I get my model shop up-and-running), but looking forward to the next year of pylon racing!
