Practice Day 1
Brett and his helper Bryan were working on some issues with his motor which I think are now resolved. Quique was flying his new Ventura bipe which looks very nice, and quite similar to the Euphoria but many subtle changes do exist. Quique was also sporting a very fancy radio case which was a gift from some friends of his, its a work of art. He commented that people pay more attention to his radio case than to his airplanes, and he was right!
Andrew showed up a bit later with his helper Verne and got in a couple of quick flights then left to get some needed rest. It was a good day and an opportunity to relax and shoot the breeze with my friends who I missed getting together with at the Nats this year.
Thats it for tonite, I will try and do a little more catch up tomorrow for Day 2 and Day 3 practice. Tomorrow is actually our 4th day of practice and we plan to head south a little ways and practice at a different site since more competitors are beginning to show up and the main site is getting crowded.
