Thanks very much to AMA DII AVP Peter Seiffert and Fran worth of the Stars who came out to help. I think they had a good time. Doug Crawford (foreground) runs the AMA district II web site. District II VP Dave Mathewson made it out as well. Dave came to the Nats last year and he's a great voice for us in Muncie.

Here's the start of another round. Mass launches can be exciting!

Contest Summary:

The field was in great shape and weather cooperated. Wind was in our faces so launches were easy and the furball didn't blow hopelessly away making visibility great. We had lots of spectators, and many were recruited to help judge. As all found, judging is THE BEST place to watch the action!

We flew 5 rounds each of Open B and SSC. Results are below:
