Contest Day 5 Report


                The fifth contest day began with a Pilot’s Meeting.  Soaring Court did not need to be called.  The daily prizes were given out.  And Mike Stringfellow gave his daily weather report.

                Grid time was at noon, and the sniffer was launch at 12:30 PM.  All gliders were in the air within an hour and twenty minutes.  The task was MAT (a do whatever you want flight) with a required turn point at Interstate 15 Exit 44, to line all the gliders up for landing.  There were two relight and eight landouts.
