Thank you Chuck!
I'm so excited. I took a lot of contest both in China and US, and this is the first time that I get the first place.

I only had to duck a couple of times while taking pics this morning. The sun was bright and contrasty, the air temp was perfect. I'm still getting familiar with the winds at Poway Field, but I heard several comments that today they were typical.

Pics are in no particular order and I learned that a shallower depth of field would have helped alleviate some of the distracting backgrounds.

Nice pictures Bob. Hope your plane will be ready soon to join us and that you talked your buddy into spending more money.

Congrats Mengchen.

I'm gonna go to LA with my friends on November 30th, so I will miss the winter postal for November probably. Maybe see you next month.

Great airplane


I have a 6 channel Vandal in pristine condition I would like to sell for $200.00. A very durable plane for a newbie to the sport but not a contest winner of course. If interested, call Jerry at 619 447-0612 . Thanks

Launch high. Fly low.
How pristine, Jerry?
Is this one of mine?

Gary,

Will we be flying per the 2020 rules (revised and new tasks, one minute no-fly, etc.)?

I'm sure we're all dying to try the new tasks D and L, fly Poker with 3 flights max, and of course the Huge Ladder ...

Gerry Carter plans to release the next version of GliderScore this year, which includes the new tasks. I'm transitioning to his software for our 2020 contests, and scorekeeping per phone using a QR code on the scorecards works great. We've been using that feature in F5J for over a year.

Holler if you need my assistance. I've been beta testing the new version.

Hi Charles

I think it would be great to try these new tasks as they also might show up at the IHLGF. We'll work them in. As for gliderscore it would be great if you and Chuck could work together in that direction - I love the idea of downloading scores directly.

Take care!
