One judge gave me a 10, and a judge I don't know gave me a 5.5. This judge also gave Ron a 4. He either doesn't like RVs, or is disappointed that we don't know his adult beverage. Thanks for the congratulates, and will have wonderful memories and new friends for life.

Default Check out Bill's hardware

Silver for the second flight and bronze for the third flight. Will get second or third overall at the awards banquet tonight.



(Can't seem to wipe the RV grin off his face this morning.)

GREAT!! YOU GUYS ARE TRULY AN INSPIRATION!

Many older folks seem to focus on their age and decide they are incapable of anything.

I have always told my mom I plan to die young (62 now, she is 87), I might be 90 but will still be young. You are living proof right here that it can be done.

Keep doing.

Congrats Bill! Same to all the RVers who are doing such a bang-up job in the IAC world! You guys make it look easy and fun! I know the latter is very true, and the former is most decidedly not true, and a product of a lot of hard work! Well done!

Cheers,
Bob

Talking straight and level

I'm back in Alabama after stopping to visit two "OLD" friends. The hardest part for me is the trip to and from the contests. My back, legs, and butt are killing me from straight and level flying, so I'm taking a nap shortly. Ron Schreck (RV8) and Patric Coggins (RV4) flew very well, except for a hick up on one of the maneuvers. When they get older, they won't make those mistake. There is no question that most of the IAC members know now that if an RV shows up at a contest, they had better be on their A game. Still have an old man permanent RV grin, or is that a smirk?. We really appreciated Doug Reeves (the man) and Jerry Esquenazi (RV8, Falcon Fld, GA) coming up to support us. Jerry will most likely be the next RVer to come play and have fun at a contest.

Lightbulb Acro Clinic?

I was talking with Mark Fullerton while at the Nationals. Mark is with IAC Chapter 3 and they host contests at Rome, Georgia. He would like to hold a clinic for aerobatic competition beginners sometime in the near future. It would probably would be a weekend affair that would include a ground school and lots of coaching from the "experts". I would like to solicit suggestions/comments from those of you who have been following this thread. What would you like to see or hear? When is the best time to hold the event, etc? Once we sort out the details I'll start a new thread and gauge the level of interest from RV pilots.
