Report: Old Timer
September, 1st 2007
We couldnít have had better weather for our fifth Old
Timer Contest put on by the Cobra R/C Club. The wind was from the
southeast, a little strong at times, but nothing the flyers
couldn't handle. We had nine flyers and three spectators, everyone
was able to finish all three rounds, and no one went out of the
field boundaries this time. I believe there were two small repairs
jobs done at the field do to hard landings, nothing serious enough
not to finish the contest.
We had a new contestant, Frank Vanecek, Frank was
flying a beautifully built Quaker, lets hope Frank will complete
in next months contest, October 6th.
Six of us went to the Fish and Game club for lunch, the
lake was just perfect, several sail boats, ( Catamarans ) were out
sailing - what a great day.
The Scores are as follows: A perfect score 350 for one
round, or 1050 total.
