A sincere thank you to all who attended……………….and for those who could not attend…….this is part of what you missed!  Results.

 

Lunch Ladies

Judy brought condiments, table  cloths, and crab linguini salad.  Robin and I did the burgers, dogs, drinks, and off color comments.  Wayne’s daughter Marissa made the outstanding brownies.  It was all the racers and friends that made the day!
Thanks again

MUSticks in Race

 

 

Gary Fenelli joined us for his first T-28 race and he loved it.  Here are a couple videos he took during the day:

Meanwhile, back at the Bay. . .

This pic is at the end of the runway, near station #2 at Mission Bay.  We had just finished the main event for May, and I (Jim) was the first to land.  Lance came in a bit hot, went long down the runway, and our planes tangled a bit.  This is how they were found at the end of the runway:

Jim and I (Bob) did some testing this morning at the SEFSD field.  I have attached the results in excel and a PDF copy to share with all MUStick racers.  Not all cells are filled in but we got enough info to see what works best on our planes and to know what we need for the next time we do some testing.
