2nd Day of Competition

Hey guys,

Sorry for the lack of updates, but we usually end up down playing pool or ping pong by the hotel pool, drinking cerveza, eating supper...and by then I am either too tired, or too many cerveza to write anything intelligent LOL.

I am not going to post pictures today, as there are simply too many.

Round three is over today, so the scores are starting to take shape. I had a bit of a slow start, with a not so good flight in #1, then a first up position draw in #2. I redeemed myself (almost) in #3 with a second place finish (behind Wolfgang).

Dumb story for the kids....Chip has been talking about snapping out all day, normally with this flight direction and wind I was snapping in (left) on the vertical upline in P. Well....last flight, I decide, damn I am going to be like Chip and snap out. BAM! Big over rotation, shiza...don't' do that again!

Even more dumb, I looked at the scores, assume I lost myself 1 point per judge...I would have won the round....agghhhhh, time for more cerveza!

The contest and the flying has been great, lots of great pilots and flights are being put in. Other than a bit of wind and bumpy conditions, the weather could not be better and the facility is unlike anywhere else that I have ever been too!

Ok, a couple of pics :)

Here is the flightline security guard, he protects the cerveza!

Here is part of the group taking the shuttle back to the hotel, makes a good airplane transport as well!

Thats all for now!
