Well, I haven't had the chance to even fire mine up since last fall. Yipes. The good thing about that is that I'll know who the donkey is in every one of my heats...

Awesome race! Perfect weather, great racing buddies all around. Squidman was unstoppable, a perfect score! Thanks to Steve Blackwell and the whole HOTMAC group for a fantastic race, and thanks to the Georgetown boys for bringing the KindziorBot release system. I can't wait for Hico, next month! (except for that darn tree...)

Great race Mr. Blackwell & Mr. Bird and all the WACO crew that made the race possible! Congratulations to Steve Squidman Fabianke for a clean sweep day! I had nothing for you with my .35 motor. ;O) A special thanks to Randy Kendzior for the design and engineering of his release system! This Club 40 pylon racing is getting really competitive and what a great time flying against all the great clubs members from across the state!
