Please get yourselves registered so I can plan on food! I think it is going to be a great weekend. There may be some scattered thunderstorms but they are "scattered" and as of right now, I think we will be fine!

Thanks,

Kevin

Barnstormer's HOT IMAC Throw Down

We started with wheels up at 9:00am and flew the first round with thunderstorms going to the south of us and some to the north. We got threw 9 basic pilots on the second round, which took us to 11:45am, when to the west a storm built up with lightning. The CD made the call to pause the contest and pilots began to take down planes and drop canopies.

The storm did hit the flying field with dropping temperatures below 70 degrees, with wind and heavy rains. The winds were from the south at 15 to 20 during the first rain. It stopped raining while another band built up and the wind came from the north at about the same velocity and it rained just as hard.

The rain stopped around 3:15pm, however there was still lightning to the east as the cell continued to move east. At 3:30, we had a pilots meeting to discuss how far we could get in the contest if we were to continue. The areas was still under a thunderstorm warning until 3:45. With 90% chance of rain and thunderstorms on Sunday, and where we were with the 2nd round, plus at 5:00pm the sun becomes an issue for the left side of the box, it was decided that we could not get the 2nd round in and we would not get to fly on Sunday. It would have been a great contest with close races in Basic, Sportsman, and Intermediate classes.

Overall, there were 14 pilots flying in the Barnstormer's HOT IMAC Throw Down contest. In no particular order they were: Austin Axmann, Charles Cooke, Darin Schmidt, Don Kuehn, Gary Gasser, Kevin Schmidt, Larry Kayich, Mark Thurman, Ron Schroeder, Steve Milam, Tom Burndrett, Vicente "Vince" Bortone, Wade Axman and William Payne. These pilots flew a grand total of 56 judged sequences.

The winning order was: (1) Gary Gasser, (2) Ron Schroeder, (3) Wade Axman, (4) Steve Milam, (5) William Payne, (6) Austin Axmann, (7) Larry Kayich and (8) Don Kuehn. They flew 2 known sequences (1 round). The scores ranged from a low of 1,169.3 to a high of 1,939 (a range of 769.6 points).

Kevin Schmidt won the Sportsman class. There were 3 pilots in Sportsman. The winning order was: (1) Kevin Schmidt, (2) Charles Cooke and (3) Darin Schmidt. They flew 2 known sequences (1 round). The scores ranged from a low of 1,837.9 to a high of 1,998.3 (a range of 160.5 points).

Mark Thurman won the Intermediate class. There were 2 pilots in Intermediate. The winning order was: (1) Mark Thurman and (2) Vicente "Vince" Bortone. They flew 2 known sequences (1 round). The scores ranged from a low of 1,148.1 to a high of 1,916.2 (a range of 768.1 points).

Tom Burndrett won the Advanced class. There was 1 pilot in Advanced. The winning order was: (1) Tom Burndrett. He flew 2 known sequences (1 round).

Mark Thurman won the Seniors class. There were 3 pilots in Seniors. The winning order was: (1) Mark Thurman, (2) Vicente "Vince" Bortone and (3) Tom Burndrett. They flew 2 known sequences (1 round). The scores ranged from a low of 531.032 to a high of 1,000.000 (a range of 468.968 points).

The tightest competition was for 5th place in the Basic class, with only 0.402 points difference between William Payne and Austin Axmann.
