    The two day event was held at the Waegell field. Despite earlier forecasts of strong winds particularly for Sunday, both days were quite nice for flying. 30+ flyers enjoyed the competition and camaraderie, and a few luckier ones were treated to $100 bills in the drawing. Hope to see you there next year! Results here. Pictures coming soon...
