USA Junior Team Follow Up
From: Jim Parker

As the manager of the USA 2018 Jr World Championship team, I was greatly thankful for Bob Stalick’s great day by day reporting. The SEN reports had all the written detail and he did Facebook posts with numerous photos.  His reports can now be found on the NFFs Website in the “Latest News” section.

From Bob’s report, you could tell the team members and the families had a great experience.  And the USA brought back 2 silver medals! All of this made possible by AMA funding and the generous donations from many of you. I recently sent an email to the donors. The Silver level donors ($100 to $299) will be getting the  colorful Jr Team shirt design by one of the team’s F1A member, Adalaide Ulm.  The Gold level donors ($300 and up) will get the Jr Team shirts and a piece of local Bulgarian art work we brought back. Most will be delivered at the up coming Sept-Oct Lost Hills contests. For those not coming to Lost Hills, donor gifts will be mailed.   I am missing emails  for Michael A. Ose and Russ Backer, please email me. If my email  missed any other donors, please contact me at <N89015@aol.com>.

I do have few more Jr Team shirts left for sale. Currently: 2 small, 2 medium, 21 large and 5 extra large.  20$ each and we’ll happily take more as a donation! I’ll have them at the Lost Hills  up coming contests. Email me  to reserve your size.  If you want them mailed to you add $5 (for one or two shirts) for shipping.

Thermals, Jim Parker

For those outside the USA the USA National Championships extends over several weeks. Most takes place that the National Aeromodelling Center in Muncie, Indiana. It is a very busy time for the  AMA who provide a lot of support including print and electronic media coverage. The actual events are run by the flyers just as any other event.  The NFFS plays a leadership role in the Free Flight section which is in July. There is a different contest director every year.  This year it was done by the Parkers from Texas.  Faust  is a well know  F1C  man and Julie  an early adopter of F1Q.  They did not get to fly this year as running the week long Free Flight event is a major effort.
