While we had 9 entries in 2009 in F1Q we had a smaller turnout this year with only 4 entries – Frank Pollard was in Eloy flying only gas power and Bernie Crowe had an excused absence. We flew 7 rounds with a max motor run of 25 seconds. The first 3 rounds were windy with up to 9 mph then it calmed to less than 3 mph with temperatures of 42° early and 69° later.
Julie Parker, TX and Mike Roseberry, AZ maxed out the 7 rounds. For the first flyoff the max engine run was 10 seconds. Julie and Mike both did 180 seconds. For the second flyoff the max motor run was 5 seconds. Julie did 113 seconds and Mike 95 seconds. Julie who flew a Maverick type plane took the new perpetual SWR F1Q trophy and the 1st place SWR coffee mug to Houston. Mike Pykelny, CA and John Oldenkamp, CA flew “F1Q light” planes for 3rd and 4th place.
