Well, we lucked out for these two fun events, after postponing them twice before finally the weather cooperated with a cloudy but low-wind day.

There was some interesting flying in both events with some strange aerobatics by myself and an unplanned touch and no-go by Larry in the 1/2-A event, and most, if not all, of us unfamiliar with the Old-Time Stunt pattern.

Overall, everyone enjoyed themselves.

Big thanks to both Chris Cox and Alan Resinger for giving of their time to judge both events.

See you all next July for the same two fun events.
