Default DELRAY DASH 424 & 426 8-20-11

RACING THIS SATURDAY 8-20-11 IN DELRAY BEACH!

The Palm Beach Radio Control Association is hosting their annual "Delray Dash" for 424 and 426 on the short course. Here's the link to their site for field info. [link]http://www.palmbeachrc.com/[/link]

Question; how many races do we have in South Florida? Answer; NOT ENOUGH! And we may loose this one if the turnout gives the club the wrong message about the interest level of racers in the area.

Time to suit up and show boys and girls. If you can still get around the course on your own power that is...

Well, HELL Yeah I will be there! I may not be able to get around the poles, but I think my plane still can. Too bad I can't defend the 424 !st place & Fast Time from last year, but I am sure you all are happy I moved up anyways!! [8D] I will fly 424 just for fun this time, even though I think it is always for fun. Wish I could do 426 too, but I am fresh out of composites until my molds are done. Soon.....

See all you guys bright & early Saturday morning...

I would like to thank the Palm Beach Radio Control Association and Jim Purdue for a wonderful race! The club did an outstanding job on the event, and we all appreciated the free Subway lunch you provided. I hope you can continue to provide a place in your schedule for a pylon racing event each year, even if you need to move it to a different time of the year. All the racers had a great time, and we look forward to your next event.

One correction, I was 3rd in Expert 424, due to that last heat incident with the ground at turn 1! [:@] Would have been tied for 1st in Expert 424 had I not had that temporary brain fart!

Thanks again for a great race, and we will see you guys next time!

The Results are correct

I will add fast time tho In 424 it was Dennis Obrien with a hot time of 1:19 and yes guys he went around the poles.

In 426 I blieve it was Matt Fehling with a 1:03. 1:03 was the fast time.

It was HOT and MUGGY

Palm beach Club did a marvelous job of putting together a great Pylon Race. We had I believe 12 pilots in Heat stroke August.

For those that missed it missed a good fun competitive race..

You want to race step up and support this club you will be happy you did
