Me too, I got my butt wax against the D-2 folks, but it was still fun. More fun to chase than be chased.

You may have, but I sure didn't pull my load last weekend, but just wait till next year like I said thou, better chasing, than being chased .
Sure was lots of fun, but spent WAY to much money, compared to my normal contest venture. As a matter of fact, I spent more in diesel than my normal entire visit, including the $50 I won.
Vic, your plane flies good. I can get you spinning 9's or better, just take some time. Doug has had one of the few planes I couldn't get to spin 9 plus's

Got the dust knocked off the Caylpso, and I'm ready for some Florida Beaches.
We may stay a extra day just to put our feet in the sand .

Although the weather was a little on the cool side and a little windy, I think everyone had a great time. I want to express my appreciation for Victor and his family for putting together a great contest. Victor and his family worked every aspect of the contest from management, scoring, manning the access gate, photography, trophies, and the cooking of a good meal. Victor managed the contest A to Z and deserves a good pat on the back for his efforts. My hat's off to you and your family Victor. Great job.

Victors and his Family are a one Team show, for sure. It was a blast, and 10-20 mph, just makes it more fun!!!
Thanks, Victor on a great job, and Dixie said Thanks as well for the extra meat

Hey Jamie, give Dixie a hug from us.  I think you gave her the wrong name though, she should be called "Shadow".  I don't think I've ever seen another dog so devoted to her master.
