Congrats to All

From Andrew Jesky...

Finally getting a chance to catch my breath after a crazy few weeks getting ready for the 2021 US Pattern Nationals. First off, to everyone who competed at the event congrats! Not everyone knows the planning and preparations that go into these events and just getting to the event is a win in and of itself. Jon Dieringer put on a heck of an event, from all the organizing to keeping us pilots in check (which is like herding cats at times) he really did an amazing job and I cannot say thank you enough to him. Gary Courtney, AC Glenn, Forrest, and Darin Peirce really helped with getting models going, I cannot thank these guys enough as well as Marcelo Colombo for producing the Proteus Bipe.

My Family, you guys are the rock that holds this crazy ride together for me, Heather and Elzie, I'm so thankful to have you there by my side through all these flights not just during the contest but the months of flying before. To my Parents, you have shown me what it is to work hard toward a dream and continue to strive to be the best I can, not at just flying but as a person. My mom always said, while winning is nice being a nice person is the ultimate goal to achieve. I try to live by these words every day. This year Evelyn and Robert my Niece and Nephew came down to watch me fly which is something special and I will never forget. To my Grandpa, hopefully your up there watching down with your 2 Beers knowing I'm doing my best to make you proud.

To all the guys in the F3A thank you very much for the push and great flying with everyone. Jason, like we said we always push each other to fly the best we can and this Nats was no different and I wouldn't have it any other way. Hammish, Marcelo, Sergieo, you guys are always there helping me when needed or letting me bounce ideas off of you when I'm not sure. Thank you so much for all of your help.

To my Utah RC Family, Darin, John, Steve, I couldn't prepare the way I do without your guys help. Mark, Greyson, Bill, Kenny, you guys were a huge help getting ready for the contest when we all linked up in Muncie, those days practicing are always some of the best memories made.

I got to meet Allie Young, Kevin and Sarah's little one whos almost already a year old and she's the sweetest little thing. To my sponsors, you all have trusted me with representing you company and I hope that I represent it in the best way possible. In all of my flights I never once have to think or worry about my equipment and this is huge to my mindset.
