Weak Signal ALES Contest July 24, 2016

The day started out cloudy and humid. With a chance of rain. 12 flyers and one worker came for the contest. Thanks to Bob Kane for bringing a computer and Dale Rupert having the program on a flash drive. Also thanks to Tim Wolf for being a worker instead of flying. I decided to set the task to 5 min. and graduated landing using the ALES tapes. We started flying approximately 9:30 AM with three rounds  to be concluded by noon. With the threat of rain and occasional sprinkles we finished the rounds by 11:45 AM.

In order of finish: Bill Pandi first place
                            Dave Whitaker second place
                            Charlie Hannula third place

As I left the field and it started raining and continued for most of the afternoon.
