National Sports & Standard Class Contest; Monday 8/26/2019
     The weather prognosticators were correct when they predicted rain showers all day. Temps in the low 60’s and tomorrow looks iffy, but Wed, Thur, and Friday look GREAT!

Henry Nixon flew his ASW-28 a distance of 91.83 miles at 46.45 mph to take 1st place for the day.

Jake Alspaugh flying his ASW-27 logged the longest flight of the day in both classes at 97.80 miles and at the highest speed for the day in both classes at 49.21 mph.  That ASW-27 is either a speedster and/or Jake knows how to center a thermal and climb efficiently.   Jake’s currently in 9th place overall.
