Region 6 North - Final Summary

Day 6 Report – Saturday, June 5, 2010

Since the weather situation at the 10 a.m. pilots’ meeting was iffy with the prediction of light sunshine and possible showers, the decision to fly or not was postponed until noon.  But, the high overcast persisted and the heating did not achieve the necessary levels for a contest day.

Thus Frank Paynter (AKA Wizard) won his first regional contest.  This is already his 5th contest of 2010, and from Ionia he heads to Cordele, Georgia and then to Parowan, Utah. 

As the contestants dispersed for home they applauded the efforts of contest CDs Irn Jousma and Manfred Franke, as well as Maggie Wint for her coordination of dinners, manning the landout phone and good-naturedly answering a myriad of questions.

Next year will mark the 35th anniversary of the Ionia Contest, and we would love to see a great turnout to celebrate.
