A Good Beginning

As you know, only the Open Class flew a task yesterday. After Open Class Contest Day 1, Ron Tabery (SS) is in a tie for 7th place and Garret Willat (W) is in a four-way tie for 10th. Personally, I think this is a great beginning for both of them!

Yesterday, at least three sailplanes from other teams outlanded in Serbia. The good news is that they all landed safely and undamaged. The bad news was that Serbian airspace was not open at the time. This resulted in a lot of confusion and red tape at the border ("Where are your papers?").

Today's flying has been cancelled due to weather.

We were honored that Michael Greiner, the designer of the ASG-29, visited our Team Office this morning with his wife and nine-month-old daughter, Emma!
