A quick reminder: The FARM Spring Pattern Contest will be held this coming weekend. Weather looks good but will be warm Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I see no reason why we will not get 6 full rounds in. I'm looking for a good turn out! This is really my first outing since my recent health issue so I am looking forward to seeing everyone!!

Great contest as usual. We enjoyed very nice air and cooled off this evening. Some new pilots entering the relm. Great to see the interest growning in the district.

Donald Lobeda won sportsman flying a .40 ultra stick with a Saito .72. Keep an eye on this young man in the future. By the way AFTER the contest I flew his plane and put a couple of mixes in (throttle to elevator on down lines and rudder to oppostite aileron). How he could fly this plane and fly it that well with no mixes and no expo and JUST enough power for a clean loop- using pure thumbs- against traditional pattern model designs was truly astonishing. It reminded me of Dave Brown in the day (someone will have to re-tell the story of him flying a high trainer in a spectacular manner during a contest in the '70s in front of some skeptical judges). Would make Ron Van Putte proud.

P.S., I saw him flying one of Chris' new 110 size monolog's after the contest... watch out. http://www.f3aunlimited.com/webstore...roducts_id=533

I want to thank everyone that came. Appreciate the support. Certainly means a lot when your the CD of a contest. I saw some good flying over the weekend! We will be doing the Fredricksburg Contest in Sept.
