I'll be up Friday after work, hopefully by 5. Need to get the rust off the transmitter again, haha. Gonna have a good group looking at the signups and the weather looks phenomenal. Can't wait to see everyone!

It's not too late to sign up: http://www.mini-iac.org/Event-Details/PID/1193

Wish I could join you for this contest. Hoping by next year we Canadians will be able to cross the border again, actually hoping we can in time for Regional Championship in early October.

That's our hope as well. The region is not complete without our counterparts from the north. Here's hoping that we can have a big celebration at Regionals with the entire NCFR family!

Great Contest as Always Mike, Bentley and I had a blast!! The Weather was great, even with the low ceilings Sunday morning the time spent with friends made up for it. Tell the ladies that their cooking was awesome and very much appreciated.

Thanks for the kind words Rob. I had a blast with everyone as well. It was a joy to have you and Bentley at the contest and have Bentley fly a basic demo flight for us. All I can say is WOW. He flew so well and with such composure. You better watch out. He’ll soon be out flying you. I’m hoping someone caught a picture of Bentley that we can post.
God willing, we’ll do it again next year. Hope to see you at Aaron’s contest in Galveston. Stay safe my friend!

Found one. Mike Sotomeyer took this pic and had it on his FB page. Super proud of Bentley we have a few things to work on but for his first flight in front of judges and having the first time nerves he did a really good job and will be competing at the next contest for sure.
