The Printer reports on the Journalist.

This years MaxMen F1G event was wone by Tiffaney O’Dell, not really a surprise seeing she is a very successful F1G flyer and typically the person to beat. But in spite of winning many F1G events and the America’s Cup many times she had never won F1G at the MaxMen.  Part of “the rest of the story” is that Tiffaney is a newspaper editor and started off her career as a sports reporter. This means that she understands competition, she knows that you need to read the rules and observe all the flyers to figure what the best people do. Her partner Blake Jensen was flying F1H and they both needed to get their early morning tie breaker flight in.  Blake also is in the Newspaper business but works on the printing side.

This year’ field was all top F1G  flyers including 1995 F1B World Champ Jerry Fitch and Geralyn Jones, she’s the FAI Model Supply lady(no Tan 2 there!), Walt Ghio and Evgeny Gorban, the leading F1G factory guy, etc  In the regular rounds there were 40 flights ( 5 rounds , eight people) and only 4 were not maxes.  Of the 8 in the event 5 made the flyoff.

People asked how she did it, in particular the 403 second  flight at dawn.
The Journalist said : Blake summed it up pretty well. It was the morning flyoff. Didn’t really try to pick air, had to leave time for Blake to fly.

So here is the report on the Sports Journalist  from the printer, Blake (stolen off the FaceBook)
From Blake:
She put up a test flight in the morning trying to set the glide close as we could to a stall. But, it crashed! V.I.T failed to come in. (Too cold for the rubber band to burn?) We did a cruise test which just started to stall so we backed off a turn. She used a May 99 motor, got a 50 second motor run, and super high. Glide was perfect and it did 6:43 in the tiebreaker round first thing in the morning. Next closest was Walt Ghio at 5:09. Then she had to max out, along with about five others. They ran a three and a four minute fly off in the afternoon and if it’s not decided by then it goes to the tiebreaker. Tiff made a snap decision and snuck in a max on the three minute flight which I had thought might’ve done it. But Jerry Fitch maxed as well. There was no air in the 10 minute window for the last fly off and they both launched with 20 seconds left to go in the round. At first neither looked like they would make it but Jerry went down wind and looked pretty good. Tiff’s plane gutted it out and she made the four minutes as well and won with the tiebreaker.
