Melissa's "just married" vehicle is the perfect choice for a combat flier. Tony Huber photo.

Congratulations, Melissa and Chad!

Noted Northwest control-line combat pilot Melissa Huber was married Friday, March 20, in Granite Falls, Wash., to Chad Brown. The couple will live in Granite Falls, only a 15-minute drive from Snohomish, home of the annual Bladder Grabber fast combat tournament, according to proud Uncle Tony Huber. Tony also reports that there's a chance that Melissa may return to competition at the 2015 Grabber.

Melissa won the Bladder Grabber, the most prestigious AMA fast combat tournament in the world, in 2005.

Below is a photo of the family taken at the memorial get-together for the late Tom Strom, also on Friday, March 20. That's Chad behind Melissa, with Tom Strom Jr. at left and Tim Strom at right, and Melissa's daughter Keelen in front. Tony Huber photo.
