Bill kicked butt this afternoon and placed 2nd in the second flight flying his Free sequence here. Now sitting at 4th overall after two flights. Patrick Coggin also had a great 2nd flight, placing 4th on that flight. One more to go.

Bill had a great flight today while Patric and I just held our own. One more flight tomorrow. Doug Reeves made a surprise visit today. Thanks Doug! Hope you had a good time.

Default Congratulations Bill!

Nationals is a wrap for the RV guys, and huge congrats to Bill McLean for finishing with a 3rd place overall medal in Sportsman! As you can see, he was only one percentage point behind 1st. I figured he would come home with a medal, it was just a matter of which one. Very well done Bill, and way to show off that underpowered, flimsy, too slick, too fast, can't stay in the box, not well suited to competition RV.

Cool RVs showed well

Thanks Eric, and we only did well because of all the coaching, critiquing, and encouraging you and other highly experienced pros have provided. This was a bucket list item, but I might have to try again next year in the Nationals when they move to Oshkosh. You should be there too, and Ron will carry your baggage. By the way, we scored higher than Debby Rihn on two out of three flights. Tomorrow we'll be finishing up in the Advanced and Unlimited categories. The best free airshow in the country.
YeeeHaaaa

Default Congratulations!!! and my apologies!!!

Simply outstanding flying Bill! You too Ron and Pat. Following you guys during this contest has been very motivational. Can't say that I will ever compete in an IAC contest again, as I am approaching 64 years young, but I will be trying out those Free programs that you shared.

You guys are the best. Well done, well earned!

Best regards,

Merrill

Thumbs up Congratulations Bill !!!

Wow, great job Bill. You make us all proud. That was a very tough group of pilots and planes you were matched up with.

Hope to see you in Sebring in November. It would be great to have you and Ron there as ground coaches.

Congrats!

64??? Did I mention that Bill started flying aerobatics at 69. He will be 76 in 3 months! I'm 70 myself. This is not just for kids.
