You should all bring a small electric plane, we can have some formation flying after a few rounds of Rhoadies on Saturday afternoon.

This is what I will be flying:-

Just got home from Richmond contest. Wow, what fantanstic weather. Saturday evening, it was almost dead calm at the field, most of the day Saturday and Sunday it was a gentle wind from the NW, no problems. Great time, sadly this is probably the last contest for the Richmond BARCS. Thanks Derek and Adrian for a good time, great contest. Sorry to see this one disappear.

Thank you Derek for CD'ing this contest for so long! You are a great asset to our sport. It takes a lot of dedication to do everything that you have done for pattern for so long.. It's appreciated! Also a big thanks goes out to Adrian for all his hard work as always! It's also appreciated!

Sad to realize after I put my plane away after the 5th round that I had just flown my last flight at BARCS. Almost made me want to go ahead and fly the 6th and also a few more after the contest as it was perfect weather and the view of the bay is so hard to beat. The field and contest will be missed!!!!

A big thank you to all who attended our contest this past weekend, especially to those who continued to support us over the years, and a hearty congratulations to all the winners.

Well, nothing last forever. Hopefully, we'll be able to host our contest at some other field in the future. Unfortunately, it will never be the same without the beautiful San Francisco bay & the infamous howling wind - except this weekend.

Last but not least, thank you again Derek for CD'ing the contest for the past 18 years.

Here are some pix:-

Wow! What a weekend for a contest at BARCS. This was, sadly, our last contest at the field as we'll be shutting down the club on June 4th due to the Parks Department turning our wonderful site into a marsh. Oh well... this is one time I disagree with the environmentalists.

We had incredible weather for our event - temps were in the high 70's all weekend with little to no wind. 15 pilots came out to fly and I want to thank each and every one of you for supporting our event over the years. We also had a couple of other pilots (Mark Alexander and Ron Davies) that came out and helped to judge over the weekend and their support is also appreciated. Thank you to all those that judged and to my good friend and flying buddy, Adrian Wong, for again assisting me and helping out with the event for the past years... 18 years is a long time to host an event and unfortunately it took us 18 years to get the weather right!

Chris,

Thanks for the kind words. You should've stayed around - Jon Bruml stayed and flew a couple more times after the event...
