2022 R.F. Stevenson Memorial Raider Roundup
Oct, 8-9, Auburn Municipal Airport, Auburn, Wash.
By Randy Ling
No rain in sight and a light breeze was provided for 13 competitors ready to show their skills in nine events at the 2022 RF Stevenson Memorial Raider Roundup.
Saturday began with a lone competitor in Old-Time Stunt and finished with five competitors in Profile Stunt. There were many good flights and smiles.
Sunday began the same way. One lonely Beginner to start the day, which ended with six expert Precision Aerobatics competitors.
Many thanks to everyone who helped make this contest fun and successful. I apologize in advance if I forgot someone.
