Region 5 South - The Hot Race Has Started

At the morning pilot's meeting, Andreea thanked all the pilots for their participation in our event.  We hope that everyone had fun and will return for the 15 Meter, Standard and Open Class Nationals next year.  On a lighter note, we had a birthday for the "Voice of Cordele", Alexis who will turn 8 on Monday.  Everyone sang happy birthday and enjoyed some chocolate cake on the way to the grid.  First launch is scheduled for 12:05 pm.

The final launch for the 2016 Region 5 Contest is complete.  Just because it is the last day does not mean that we aren't racing!  The FAI Combined and Sports Classes scores are very close and warrant a challenging task to determine the winner.  Both the FAI Combined and 18 Meter Classes are on a 300K Assigned Task while Sports are on course for a 3 hour Turn Area Task.  Back on the ground our crew is packing up all the supplies so we can leave Crisp County Airport cleaner than we arrived. Dub Cooper and his staff have been great to the soaring community to allow us use of the airport.  The Cordele Chamber of Commerce and especially Greg Turton always makes this contest easier to put on due to the support of the local community.
