October Play-by-Play

      Duane Barrett, Contest Coordinator

Overview
Competition Saturday in October was the final competition of 2022. October's results will list the final scores for the year.

Weather
The weather was full blue sky and sunny with about a 10 to 13mph wind out of the north. At least take off would have us racing right away!

T-28 Class
We had a total of four racers turn out.

Heat 1: Terry finished first, KC second, Geo. was third and Duane fourth. Duane suffered two pylon cuts.

Section 2, No Section 2

Heat 2: Again Terry was first, Duane second, Geo third and KC in last.

Section 2, No Section 2

Heat 3: Of course Terry finished first, Geo second, Duane third due a pylon cut and KC was DNF. Not sure what happened there, too busy racing myself.

Section 2, No Section 2

T-28 Wrap Up: The weather was beautiful except windy, sun shine and about 75 degress. All in all a good race day. Excellent BBQ feed, many thanks to Jim Wilkie, the chef!

Reno Class
There were five Reno racers starting the field today!

Heat One: Rick first, Terry second, Greg third, John C. fourth, and Geo fifth.

Heat Two: Rick first, Greg second, Geo third, Terry was DNF, he took out the top two sections of number one pylon, John was DNF also taking out the streamer and top section of the number two pylon before crashing on the runway. Pilots are reminded that damaging a pylon will incur a negative 10 point penalty according to the rules. Therefore both Terry and John recieve a minus 10 points for pylon damage during this heat. Damage of the runway is a minus 50 points. No runway damage was noted from John's runway crash.

Heat Three: One more time - Rick first, Greg second, Terry third, John fourth, and Geo last.

Reno Wrap Up: Three very fast heats with five planes competing and five planes finishing! Some very quick Reno racing, and some slight damage, but in all a very fun day folks!
