Region 3 - Contest Day 1

The day was not as good as hoped and the scattered showers did come into play. Good looking clouds and streets early in the afternoon turned dark and it was raining in Avoca when the guys had to go up that way. 90-degree course deviations were the norm today to avoid the bad areas. Conditions were better in the southern portion of the task, if you could get there. Cloud bases were up to ~6500ft with 4-5kt thermals.

Most of the landouts were at Costa’s (Painted Post) coming out of the first turn. Only two pilots completed the task: John Seymour [SM] and Bill Hanson [WH]. And a shout out to Ryan McMaster [1], the only pilot in the Jr Camp to complete the Jr task!
