Work Party 2014
May Warbird Pylon
Monday, 19 May 2014

Report by Tony McDonald, video by Jon Stychno

High winds blowing down the pylons on both ends of the course greeted the racers early in the morning Sunday May 18th.

After the usual Pilots meeting the racing started shortly after ten o'clock. Paul Gibson and Doug Moore got the T-28/Corsair class under way with a mid-air collision on the back stretch of the short course. Paul only lost his canopy, while Doug went down in the vineyard hard. Looks like Doug will be able to repair his racer with a little tender loving care!

The Parkzone Warbird class saw it's first crash early. Paul Kohlmann's beautifully painted Swiss ME-109 spun into the grapes. The only FW-190 to compete this year was damaged on final approach after hitting a metal stake at the end of the runway. Both Paul and Wylie should have their planes repaired by next mouths race.

The Dogfighter class had three pilots compete this race! Jon Stychno, Brian Young, and Adam Clement were burning up the pylons. There was a lot of close calls, but no collisions. EF-1 racing was rather un-eventful. A lot of clean racing and only one damaged Miss Dara on landing.

Due to the windy conditions the was a lot of precision flying demonstrated in all of the four different racing classes this month. Some carnage was on display also allowing some spectators to see the inner most details of model airplanes. As always it was a great show. With a little ruffled feathers, bruised ego's, some heckling and a lot of fun. Special thanks to the race Director for keeping everything as fair and even as possible.

Work Party 2014

Vice President/Safety Officer Wylie Walters got everyone busy making the improvements to the club's flying site promptly at ten o'clock. Everybody worked on recovering the tables in the pit area. Some members brought out gas-powered blowers and blew off the runway and pits. Bill Walters mowed the outlying grassy areas the day before the work party, and still made time to show up and help some more the day of the work party! Everyone should take the opportunity to thank Bill for the years of mowing he has done for the club. Bill usually flies during the week or the occasional Saturday. The father and son team (Bill and Wylie) get a lot done at the club through out the year. The weather for the Fun Fly was windy, very windy. Still we had five pilots compete. The first event "Golf" was won by Wylie with the ball six feet away from the target. The second event "The dice roll" was won by Jon S. with a low time of four seconds I believe. The third event "All up last down" was won by Adam with a Fun Cub. Surprisingly not one plane was lost in the high winds!
