Weekend Contest, Day 4 Results

Jun
15

We had another challenging soaring day across central Indiana. There were strong winds from south all afternoon; winds reached 23 mph at cloud base.  Some good lift, up to 4 knots, could be found, but it was scattered and difficult to work. The task was a 1.5 hour turn area task from Alexandria to Pat Robinson, Reese, and back to Alexandria. Four club members set off to attempt the task:  Ron Clarke, Rich Smith, and the combination of Kevin Johnson and John Earlywine.
