Default Knoxville TN AMA pattern meet

Hi All,

Great to see the guys who made the trip down from D4...

Knoxville TN- Inaugural House Mountain Pattern classic kicked off Friday afternoon with pilots from D4 and D3 practicing and socializing with old friends. 15 pilots filled the classes and Saturday morning there was a short pilots meeting and the contest started. There was several cross over pilots from SPA (Senior Pattern Association) that came up to battle it out in the sportsman class. There was six rounds flown and the FAI / Master guys had their own little contest going alternating rounds flying FAI & Masters, which was interesting. Four rounds where done on Saturday and there was lunch provided which even had a dining area. Sunday two more flights where done to finish the contest.
Sunday during the set up it was noticed that the plaques did not make it into the assistant CD van, so Paul Funk and my wife jumped into the Avid Speedwing and flew 25 minutes to Oliver Springs airport to meet up with Phil Spelt’s Wife and retrieve the items and flew back to the contest site. It was a 1 hour roundtrip vs. a 2.5 drive round trip, which they made it back as the last two pilots where finishing up the six rounds.
A special “Thank You” goes out to Paul Funk, for the plaque airlift, for providing the pop-ups for the flight line and scoring, Terry Rogers HMRC president & Thompson family for use of their site. And Joel Hebert for doing the computer work.

Here are the results:

1 Julio Arrieta
2 Mike Robinson
3 Carl Sten

1 Mikael Fedon
2 Kirk Sutherland
3 Warren Oliver

1 Gary Courtney
2 Jon Lowe
3 Ed Hartley

1 Ray Morton
2 Bob Pannell
3 Everette Carpenter

1 Ray Morton
2 Bob Pannell
