What a great day.  Perfect clouds, lined up well in the general area of the TAT task to Rosachi Ranch with a 25 mile radius, then Milford with a 20 mile radius.  The 3.5 hr task had a min distance of about 145 miles, and a max of about 319.  Most pilots went pretty deep at the first turn, and turned around at the second TP at the point where they had final glide.  JJ won the day and holds a 70 pt lead over MG.   HAL is flying well and recovering from the landout on day 2, and it will be a close race tomorrow for 3rd place.  Tomorrow weather will probably be as good as today, but will be complicated by a TFR in the middle of the PineNuts for a wild fire that started today.
