Day 3 Report

Day 3 started off well with a F1B and F1C flyoff in near perfect conditions. As can be seen from the results there were patches or bad air or sometime too good air that caused some of the favorites to drop. Very close scores in F1B at the top of the list.

In F1C Charlie Stiles launched first and got a great piece of air that kept him in the sky for the whole 10 minutes.

The F1C team is
Ron McBurnett
Charlie Stiles
Mike Roberts

For the days rounds the weather started off great but after 2 rounds of F1A and 1 of F1B a really nasty front came through. We moved the flight line up wind to no avail as the speed increased over 9 m/s. The locals predicted that this was there to stay for the day. The sportsmen were call back at 2 pm and the the wind was still strong but coming from a different quarter. The wind continued to drop with increasing calmer spells and maximums below the limit. Unfortunately the direction was westerly across the field. A new line was set up and flying resumes with a 150 second max to keep the airplanes off the highway. We did 2 more F1A and F1B rounds before sunset.

In writing about day 2 of the event I mentioned just some of the people who have made the event possible. Others are, Local Las Vegas man and F1G aficionado Jon Zeisloft who is the chief processing officer, doing the initial documentation check, the spot checks throughout the event, World Champs style and the detail processing of the winners. The score keeping was done by Lindy Murrell with numbers fed from the line by Mike Richardson. The finals over sight sub-committee of the TSC: Blake Jensen, Bill Booth, Charlie Jones and Chuck Etherington did lots of detail prep works was done by t. You could see Bill Booth’s neat artistic design on the various documents, F1C Fueling station and signs, from the time cards to the flight line pole numbers. As usual we had our international visitors with Liuda Stamova, Peter Allnutt and Henning this year who helped out with timing, other tasks and coaching various flyers. Bill Gannon and Randy Secor came up from California to help on timing and a variety of tasks each day .
