Sports Class Nationals - Day 2 - Evening Report

Hello Race Fans,

Chuck Lohre here, reporting on the Sports Class Nationals at Caesar Creek Soaring Club in Waynesville, OH. I'll be posting during the day with videos on the SSA's Facebook page. In the evening I'll repeat what I posted and add any other commentary. You can reach me at 513-260-9025, chuck@lohre.com.

Thanks for the nice compliments on the Facebook posts and videos. We can't match the cu photos from Hobbs but we're trying to keep our chin up. See you tomorrow at the 10 am pilot's meeting for more introductions.
