Region 9 Moriarty - Friday, June 7 Contest Day 3 - Preliminary

With the pool of stable air still to our east, the day began with high moisture and an early morning layer of fog/stratus.  The fog was expected to burn off well before noon and become  sunny with cumulus developing in later morning.  Overdevelopment to storms was expected to occur early.  But a brief window of good soaring conditions was expected to occur to the west of the airmass boundary.  The weather gods relented and we were finally able to get in a good day of flying.

The task called for all classes was a Turn Area Task with turnpoints at Crosby Ranch (30 mi radius), Chochiti Dam (25 mi radius), and Clines Corner (10 mi radius) with a minimum time of 2:45 for the FAI classes and 2:30 for the Sports class.

Preliminary results for the Standard class have Walt Rogers as the winner for the day with 1000 points for a speed of 82.27 mph over a distance of 244.67 miles.  In the 15 Meter class Steve Koerner won the day with 1000 points for a speed of  89.82 mph over a distance of 246.83 miles.  Ken Sorenson led the pack in the 18 Meter class with 1000 points for a speed of 84.23 mph over a distance of 231.45 miles.  And in the Sports class Eric Liddel finished first with 1000 points for a handicapped speed of 74.28 mph over a distance of  187.64 miles.
