Last 2022 US  F1E contest

(not sure if this was announced)

From: Tom  Ioerger
We held the last F1E contest of the season on Nov. 15th at the Holloway hump. The fog did not clear until noon ,but once it did we had good flying. Five 45 minute rounds had us complete before dark. As usual, no one maxed out, but the light breeze was out of the East so there were strings of good scores. Mike McKeever won with Brian Van Nest second and Fred Terzian third followed by Mike Richardson , Tom Ioerger and Ben Tarcher.
