Region 7 - Day 3

No, this isn’t boring.  A high-pressure ridge continues to dominate our weather so today was better than the practice day and the first two contest days.  The skies over Iowa were fast with climb rates from four to seven or eight knots or more, and altitude gains to 7,000 feet agl and higher, all guided by honest cumulus clouds.  Eleven pilots flew faster than 60 mph including two pilots from the low performance class, and eight more pilots bested 50 mph.  And then many flew gold distances too.  Today’s winners include Mike Shakman in the 18 meter class, Ron Ridenour in the sports class, and Tony Condon in the low performance class.
