2014 Pylon #1
Monday, 17 March 2014
Report by Tony McDonald, video by Jon Stychno

Sunny skies finally greeted the Wine Country Flyers pylon races this year. After last years windy and rainy season it was a nice change. The warm weather brought out fifteen pilots! Paul Gibson, John Reade, Doug Moore, Julio Alvarez, Wylie Walters, Jake Boatman, Dave Mercer, Brian Young, Bryan Germone, Steve Cole, Mark Crowley, Jon Stychno, Paul Kohlmann, Phil Leech, and Myself. And six pilots competed in multiple classes.

The T-28/Corsair class had the most entries. Seven in total. Paul Kohlmann and Jake Boatman are tied in the points race with three wins and one cut-out for each pilot. The Parkzone Warbird class had five competitors. We saw our new class with equal speeds with the four different aircraft designs. Two Spitfires, one P-47, one Fw-190, and two Mosquito's raced. Jon Stychno won the points battle for the day. The Dogfighter class had three competitors. Jon Stychno dominated the class with three victories. The EF-1 class had seven pilots signed up to compete but one dropped out with equipment malfunctions. Steve Cole won the day with a victory in every race he ran!

 
Float Fly 2014 #1
Wednesday, 12 March 2014
Merle McGregor

It's that time again, to dust off the old float planes and water toys and have some fun. Our first one is Sunday April 13th. The water level is up, everything looks good. This year we are encouraging people to use the area on the left, as you come in the gate. It's easier access with less rocks to stumble over. I'm working on an Idea for a ramp to go over the rocks if the water level gets low. It involves a sheet of plywood with non-skid strips. If anyone has a good Idea, we would like to hear it. It is daunting sometimes getting your plane in the water.

I will be donating 2 dozen doughnuts to the first comers. The donation box will be back for the Salvation Army in appreciation for the use of their lake, but as always it's strictly voluntary.

There will be 3 more float flys:

  • Monday May 26 (memorial day)
  • Friday July 4th
  • Monday September 1st (labor day)

Mark your calendars and join us for some fun on the lake. Bring you chairs, shade, lunch, and your AMA is required to fly.

See you on the lake!
