Default Region 11 Truckee, California - FINAL CONTEST DAY - GOES-17 vis Videoand Flight Track

Kudos..

to the R11 organizers, CDs and pilots for pulling of a difficult contest. Poor weather resulted in 4 days of contest flying including one California Grand Prix task.

The last day was the only real racing day, won by John Cochrane "BB" in his ASH-31mi. It shows a classic Minden/Truckee racing day in fair to good conditions. Final summary of that day:

....and the video...

And a Big Thanks also to Walt for his weather advice - even if it was mostly bad (weather that is)!

You put a lot of work into this Walt, and we appreciate it.

Thankfully, even relatively poor soaring weather at Truckee permits racing.

Thanks to all the volunteers who make it possible.

The Truckee format for handicapped grand prix race also worked very well, and turned out to be a lot of fun. It took a lot of work from Jon and MIke, much appreciated. Try it!

F1GP organizers would love to have some overseas competitors again! I'd love to but don't think I can pull off being out of country for two Christmases in a row. Get ahold of them!
