Way to go, Oleg. Did you pop the cork on that champagne, or are you waiting until after the Big Show? Enjoy your day off and best of luck to you and Team USA in the Big Show. This is what we've been waiting for!

Today is the registration and model processing day.
The place is like an ant hill with all pilots waiting their turn at the processing table. We are amongst the last teams on the schedule.
The opening ceremony will happen in the evening today.

PS. Connected to WiFi finally but still no data upload at all...

Pics from the opening ceremony.
The registration dragged much longer than the organizers planned. We were afraid they would not finish until dark.
The registration stopped and then continued after the opening ceremony. We got registered only well after 7 pm.

Tomorrow is the first day of the Worlds!!!

We are at 72% of our fundraising goal!!!
Thanks a lot.
Please donate more if you were thinking of doing it.
All team members see your donations and are thankful.

The website is very confusing via cellphone. Anyone have a link to the start list/matrix? Please post. Thanks

Toby, I have not found any published matrix but good news: they are now showing both WC juniors and seniors events in GliderScore's Online Scores page. If they update it once a round it will be fun to watch.

More good news: I see they also have posted the Trnava Cup qualifying rounds there too. Note that it takes awhile for the results to display after you select the contest--maybe this is because there are so many pilots. Not sure.

Had a far marker but didn’t quite get to where the thermal was and had to come home early. Several in the group landed out of bounds.
