Here is the result of the Georgetown race. First let me say thanksto the workers that helped make our event a success, and to Gary Fisher and hiswife Maria for the excellent food they prepared for us. This was one of thebest races we have had at our field in a long time. The weather was as good asit gets with a light wind straight down the runway. And after six rounds andthe A, B & C mains there were no midair encounters. One plane had a radiomalfunction and one plane hit pylon one in the A main trying to fly tight. One ofour old time buddies is back into the Club 40 circuit, Eric DeSardi; he was alittle rusty but with some stick time heíll be to his old self.
For me the bummer for the day was the mistake I made byhanding out the Fast Time trophy to Ken Hopson. I should have given it to JimPlake, Jim had a time of 1:26.62 and Kenís best time was 1:27.91. I will blame theerror on having a senior moment and being pooped by the end of the day. Jim andKen I apologize, I did not realize the error until after I got home and reviewedthe results sheet to prepare this write up.
A thank you goes to all the pilots for flying safely andresolving issues at the line. It made my job much easier.
