NATS Update!

NATS Update!

Bruce took third in Hand Launch and Ben, in his first major, took forth. The score sheet shows Ben came on REALLY strong in the last rounds to move up. ( BEN that counts toward your Level 3)

I leave in the morning for Muncie. Beside Bruce, Ben and myself we have Ken, Tony, Gordy, and Jojo flying this week. This is the strongest LASS showing at the Nat’s in years. Keep up with the flying by going to the AMA web site and looking at the Nat’s Newsletter.

Thanks to Tony for the photos!

Next week: OK, so Jo Grini is going to be in town NEXT week, and on Thursday, July 21st we’ll be having an informal warm-up contest.
