On Sunday July 16th we concluded the 2017 version of the Lamar Steen Commemorative IMAC Challenge. To quote an email from one of the long time
competing pilots, “It was the most fun I have had at a contest ever” We ran only one flight line with 10 pilots competing in 5 classes. Since there was only 1 flight line it was a pretty relaxed contest. Still in the two days we had 60 competition flights and zero airplane mishaps, well one pilot did bounce a landing and break a prop.
I would like to thank all of the club members and former club member for the great job they did working and helping at the contest.
and a special thank you to Hank Barron for cooking lunch both days and to Larry Ott for the very important job of score keeping.
Also special thanks to Terri Ott for supplying and making the awards!
I hope we have as much success with the Pattern contest in August.
