13.5 Meter Super Regional - Day 7 Early with 1-26 Cumulative Scores

Good morning race fans,

Our pilots meeting feautred Daniel showing a decent weather forecast with a risk of blue skies by late afternoon. Daniel also took the time to tell us how he beat us all yesterday. It was noted that 2nd place yesterday in 13.5 meter was Bill Vickland in 238.

The plan is to grid at 11:30 and fly a 2:30 TAT. The score sheet is still tight so Jim isn't planning on giving us a fluff task, the winners will have to earn it. 

I talked with Jacob Fairbairn (430) this morning. He said his landing next to I-35E was pretty interesting and there were 3 police cruisers there practically as soon as he stopped. The grass area was at least as smooth as the grass runway here at TSA though and it was easy to get the trailer to the glider. One of the officers is currently training to be a pilot and he was interviewed by the Italy, TX newspaper reporter. He has some good pictures on his phone and hopefully he'll put them in the gallery for the contest.

I will have to type out the current 1-26 cumulative score for you so here goes. I'm not sure if Jacob's flight from yesterday was included in this since he got back late.

1 - 428 - Schwartz/Sazhin - 5521

2 - 238 - Vickland - 5437

3 - 190 - Hurni - 5285

4 - 192 - Anderson - 4002

5 - 97 - Williams/Donahoo - 3492

6 - 264/053 - Barkow/Palmquist - 3440

7 - 578 - Moos - 2914

8 - 508 - Fisher - 2766

9 - 483 "Bulldog" - Vredenburg - 1785

10 - 215 - Barr/Root - 1064

11 - 244 - von Hellens - 963

12 - 430 - Fairbairn - 743

13 - 182 - Farra - 735

Considering the early grid time I better go get ready to fly. More after the banquet!
