    Hi fellow BTV enthusiasts!

    Just to remind, the flights are going to be timed and recorded this year.
    So that means all fliers need to carry STOPWATCHES, since it is a
    TIME ONE, FLY ONE operation!

    Two weeks from tomorrow the BTV Mass Launch Fun will be in full swing,
    so I hope everbody is ready and raring to go!

    See you all there!

    Hi all,

    BTV @ the NATS was weather delayed, but we did find an opportunity to
    fly on Fri morn between 0730 & 0800.
    We had 21 entries but fewer fliers [12] as some had to leave, were packing up or just plain overslept{Tim B! :oops:].

    My last year’s winner Red Mo 12, was up to the task, winning with times
    of 82 sec in the first heat, then 88 sec in the finals.

    So Mr Moderator, you may take this thread down any time you feel it
    is appropriate.

    Thanks to all the folks who joined in and hope you will be there next year!

    yr hmbl srvnt,
    Leeper, wearing BTV honcho hat 🙂
