ImageUROC’s annual Pioneer regional meet was held at the Pony Express Test Range on May 16th and 17th. The weather for both days was excellent. Turnout allowed the event to be considered a regional event. Here are the results for each of the competitions.

A Parachute Duration: Parachute duration did not get the participation that we had hoped, but there were some very impressive flights.

C Division
1st: Matt Steele  218 seconds
2nd: Steve Anderson  9 seconds

1st: Dizzy Dog  555 seconds
2nd: Bofus  55 seconds

D Boost-glider Duration: This event is always a difficult task, but the contestants proved they could do it. Most entries were Edmonds kits. Bruce and Sally Bell both had DeeCee Thunders. The other entries were Deltie Thunders flown by Steve Anderson and the Bofus team of Frank and Dot Hunt.

Open Spot Landing: This was the event that relied mostly on luck. The spot was randomly picked and marked with a bright blue plastic Pringles™ can found on the premises. Of rather disconcerting observation: the can was riddled with bullet holes from previous target practice…
