Given the less than stellar weather forecast for the weekend, this will be the official "go/no go" thread for the IMAC contest. I will make a decision by 9pm on Friday evening. As of right now it is a go.

Here are the results for the contest:

Basic
1st - Chris - 1000
2nd - Brian - 944.7

Sportsman
1st - Paul - 1000
2nd - Mike - 995.9
3rd - Ben - 990.6

Intermediate
1st - Kelly - 1000
2nd - Colin - 940.4
3rd - Al - 920.8
4th - Mike S - 904.9
5th - Sandy - 495.3

Advanced
1st - Mark

All in all it was a great weekend. We only lost about 30 mins of flying on Saturday due to showers and we managed to get 3 rounds in. It was pretty windy on Sunday but everybody did a good job of making those tricky but critical wind corrections. Thanks to the Truro club for hosting the event.

I must say that the most exciting race by far was the sportsman class. Only 9.4 points separated 1st from 3rd and it was even closer at the end of rounds 3 and 4. In my opinion, Paul, Mike and Ben should all move up to intermediate as they are more than capable. That would make for 8 guys all in intermediate....yeah! Cheesy
