Saturday the wind was gusting from 2 - 8 mph which made retrieval of the high performance ships near impossible if timing did not take advantage of the lull. The F1A flyers seemed more fortunate in this regard until the last round, when a very long episode of search the corn field was successful. Sunday was milder w/ a calm to 4mph drift from the south. A good direction !
