Region 4 South - Wrap up

A total of 25 pilots few 160 flights over 8 days (6 contest and 2 practice days) for a total of 15,397 x-c miles. The longest flight was 165 miles and the fastest was at a speed of 68 mph (over 147 miles) by Karl Striedieck. No junk was made and there were a total of two off field landings.

The final social event Friday evening started with a pre-Halloween costume party with appearances by Cher, Elvis and a group of "usual suspects (actually inmates)." Hors devoured (including jalepeno poppers made up as little mummys) were courtesy of Pat Buckley followed by the annual pig roast.  The evening finished with the music of Virginia Blue, prompting a large crowd on the dance floor. The bonfire blazed with stories to match.

This just reconfirms the status of NCI as a premier mountain racing site not only for the conditions and environs (being held during the fall raptor / monarch butterfly migration) but also for the outstanding social scene created through the efforts and hospitality of the club members.

A HUGE wad of thanks to all the club volunteers that donated their time and help to make this event possible once again.

See you next year.
