I'll have the final results at tomorrow's meeting.

Overall, it turned out a lot better than I expected with Evil Mr. Prevailing Winds putting a damper on things. No records set, but some great flights.

(Attn. Scott Danner: Work on those pod designs! With the trim of those gliders, that's begging for a record attempt at PETR!)

Thanks to all of you guys who had to pack up the range on Sunday.
I was hoping we could stay and help, but Jack's stomach was rebelling and
I think he would have eventually let it fly in the car if we had stayed
out in the heat and wind much longer. We had a good time with the
few flights we did and we learned some things flying in the wind
of course. -Frank

Way to go Steve, I know it must be hard to adjust your flying schedule, but watching your son's face launching those rockets should tell you it's a good decision. Wesley is a great little guy and he deserves all the support you can give him. Maybe as he gets a little older you and he can enter some team entries and kind of kill two birds with one stone?

All I can say is I lost 3 (one was an intentional fly away) rockets during Windoneer 2006. I woudn't mind getting them back but there wasn't a lot invested in them either. The contest was fun anyway. Wesley bugged for two days to launch the Blue Ninja. I have modified to accomodate an E9 motor but I felt wind was too strong even for a D12. We will fly it on a calmer day.

One thing I want to do is to take a more relaxed approached to flying. This is so I can better take care of Wesley and fly some of his rockets.

You may here him say \"Root Beer\"--I think all his rockets are named Root Beer or you may here him say Ricky Ricardo Rocket. This comes from a tape and the annoucer says \"Ricki don't call me Ricardo Rockett.\"

This is great hobby to involve families.
