Weekend Contest, Day 2 Results

Mark Rottler's picture

After an outstanding soaring day across central Indiana, the second weekend contest day has been won by Brad Hays. Congratulations Brad! The task was a 2.5 hour turn area task from Alexandria to Portland, Hagerstown, and back to Alexandria. All five participating pilots finished with an average speed better than 45 mph, with the top two pilots exceeding 60 mph. Cloudbase was up to 8,000' MSL in spots.

Thanks to everyone who helped make today a success. Tod Herli's crew provided excellent support for the contestants. Kris Maynard did a great job towing – he got the entire field launched in 30 minutes. And finally, a big "thank you" to Don Taylor who showed up to help the crew and to help me run the contest. Don was the contest director for the last several CISS contests and provided invaluable advice and support.

Here are the detailed results:
