News from the Willamette Valley

Very light turn out for the Tangent Classic this past weekend, perhaps a travel hangover given  the Nats and Mongolia that had many flyers on the road or in the air for long periods.  Big day started out with light drift and cooler temperatures but the forecast was to get very breezy and warmer in the early afternoon.  We chose to fly compact rounds in each group and were able to get in seven  in both B & C.  Due to some technical difficulties, the A's got a little behind so we stopped at six rounds for them as the breeze really kick up.  Max outs were limited to Mike McKeever and Ron McBurnett with Blake getting the dreaded 179 in one of his rounds.  Mini day was again benign in the early morning and breezy later with only Tiffany in Coupe, Blake and Mike M in F1 H and Matt in Q flying all rounds.  i put my J away after three maxes in each contest as my fun meter was full.  We were delighted to have two talented Jrs join us this year; Alex Stalick in A and Troy Davis in B.  Both flew very well.

Once again, one of the highlights of these contests in the Spaghetti feed an social, put on by the Willamette Valley Modlers Club and hosted and Linda and Glenn Grells home. This year we once again had a fun after dinner show of diesel combat put on by Canadians, Mel Lynn and Bruce Mathews.  Always a treat to watch these two go at one another.
