04/29/07 - Arrival Day

Sunday....arrival day at Chilhowee. Sweet, awesome, cool, groovie, smooth...real smooth. Still getting some climb at 8 PM. I have never been to the Ridge, now I never want to leave the Ridge. 27 gliders at Chilhowee. I took a tow at 1830 and popped off near the ridge and climbed to 5900 MSL. Flew up and down the ridge....so this is what these guys from New Jersy have been talking about. Turned to the valley and flew 100 down till it was time to land. Not bad for that late in the day. Many of the guys flew for several hours today. Its very docile and smooth flying. First practice day is Monday. Chilhowee is a very classic grass strip barn hanger glider port.

Later, Norm

04/30/07 - Practice Day 1

Meetings completed this evening..rules meeting done. I saw Kevin Ford this morning and he got out early on Sunday and flew 6 hours and over 200 miles. Irn Jousma also had a great flight and saw an 8 knot thermal.

Today (Monday) most of us took a tow to get a look around the area. We all spent most of the time around the ridge again in a thermal that took us up to 5800. One gaggle was fun with 8 1-26s in it just over the ridge. A few pressed into the the valley and it was pretty smooth again. We had a few landouts. It was an OK day to just go through the motions and get your glider ready to fly.

Tuesday will be practice day #2 and we hope to get a task in.

Pilot meeting at 0930.

Norm

05/01/07 - Practice Day 2

Well the day started out sort of like yesterday. We sat around until 1400 and launched anyway. The pilots hit the ridge and it was not pumping like the last two days. However it seems if you backed off about a 1/4 mile to the west the thermals were booming. We all pretty much got up to 6000 and departed on the task out to Big Spring. I felt it was sort of iffy in light sink and flew to the first radius and turned for home. A few guys made it over to this big industrial complex and got a big one up to 6000 again. At about this time we had one land out at Hardwick Airport. Then the pack procedured south to TP Rostex. At last report I have been told that 5 finished the task with Tom Barkow in the lead but this is just a prelim. The Master of scorekeepping Tom Pressley just rolled in and will now have scores for Tuesday. Contest Day one is next. I hope the rain stays in Dallas for a few more days.

05/02/07 - Contest Day 1

Gridded Contest day one.jpgPilot meeting complete and today looks like yesterday except it may close out early with the two fronts approaching. Kevin Ford was the quasi declared winner for the practice day having flown about 70 miles. He had some low points and saved himself with a boomer just past the first turnpoint. Then he had great lift to point 2 and home. The PW-5s had all but one land out due to their task being much further. Young Sarah Anderson is in the house and will be running the retrieve desk. Chilhowee is a classic soaring site with a huge grass stip, old barn and nice meeting cabin. Check out the website for some pictures of the location.

05/03/07 - No Contest Day

Sorry I am a little behind sked on the contest report. Day 1 turned out pretty good with Ford winning. My partner flew but I can give you some of the comments by pilots. Most got out Ok with a few relights. The pack left the ridge at 6-7K. Most headed north and then the decision time came. Run the ridge or head out into the valley to fly south. Both were tried but it seems the winners were in the valley. You can see the scores on the SSA website. Tom wil get them oper here soon.

Day 2...good meeting and then we manned the grid and waited for the CD to start the launch. The sky was overcast with some blue sections moving around. At around 1430 some good looking flat bottom black clouds were forming. The PW5s launched and we followed. During the launch an area of rain started forming off to the the SW. Pilots were doing pretty good on the ridge waiting for the task to open. The rain came over the field and the PWs cancelled the tasks and we soon cancelled the launch. Everyone made it back fine. Many of us sat under the wings and when the rain passed we put the gliders away. This gave us a chance to conduct the 1-26 Assoc Annual meeting. I announced the winners of the per ardua award for 2006. We have awarded Jay McDanial and Kevin Ford to share the award this year for their work on the Sweepstakes. Dinner tonight at the field. Fried chicken.

Day 2 debrief. 6 finishers with Bob Hurni winning the day. Yours truley came in third which is a new high for me. We had many landouts and returns to the filed. I will tell you about my flight. Off tow went straight up to 5000 AGL and headed west following Marvin Willis. Marvin and I worked some nice thermals dropping to 3000 AGl during the search. Vern came in on one and I enjoyed watching an 81 year old with us at cloud base. Next thermal Marvin zoomed up and left and I lost him. We were both heading to TP Georgetown and I never saw him. I hit the TP and there was a nice dark cloud over the lake to the north and it was a good one. Back up at 5000. I left it heading for home and started a descent to about 2800 AGL. I looked down and saw Marvin and Von Hellens in a field. This spooked me a little and I found a 2 knotter and worked it for about 20 minutes and finally connected and went back to 4000. I pressed home still a little low for final glide and joined Hurni in a good one just a few miles from the filed.

Day #3 looks good with Ford the WX guy telling us to expcet a blue day light East winds and thermals to 9000K. We have a TAT with a 3 hour minimum time. The sniffer just left so I am outta here to help my teammate launch..

05/07/07 - Canceled Day

Day #3 attempt. Well the weather did not hold out as forecast. We never got the temps high enough. Things seems to be going well with the grid launch and we were just geting a few relights. The task was opened and the sky was filled with a line of 1-26s heading for the first turnpoint. Soon Hurni was calling low north of the field. Not a good sign. I could see a nice gaggle in a thermal west of the field and they seemed to be getting out on task. I walked down to see Tammie Anderson taking phone calls. Vickland, Von Hellens, Barkow, Ford..the entire sky was dropping gliders. Cathy Williams was the only pilot to finish the task, nice job Kathy. Jeff Daye came close however landed out just short of finishing. It looks like a No Contest day. We have two days left to get this Champs complete. it is supposed to be warmer on Tuesday...better conditions.....please.

Norm

A 3-h Turn Area Task was called, but it looks as if it may have been a bit ambitious. Nearly the entire field has landed out, and there is a steady stream of trailers leaving the airport. It seems likely that there will not be a sufficient number of competitors achieving minimum distance to make a contest day.

05/08/07 - No Contest Day

Another tough day at the Championships. So far even though we stayed out for quite awhile it looks like another No Contest day. Some great epic flights however 30% of the starters must complete 30 or more miles and we did not get this. So far Tom Barkow is the top flyer today. We need a good day on Wed to get a contest.....It should be hotter...anyway inspite of the way the days are going, we are getting a lot of flying in and having fun with the many great social events each evening that the Anderson's and Sarah set up.

05/08/07 - Contest Day 3

Well many of us are now arriving home. The Awards brunch was well attended and we enjoyed many laughs along with the fellowship over a nice meal. First I would like to congratulate our super newsletter editor for his second YARDSTICK award. It is prestigious and Craig, I am sure is very happy. The Goats, Toads and Buzzards are listed below. Pat and Vern were only 2 months apart at 81 years. Maybe next year Vern. Paul Rehm was really excited when he won the David Johnson (high score/first contest). Kathy Williams not only was the solo finisher one day (non contest day), she also achieved a personal goal and has been awarded the Virginia Schweizer Trophy. She was very touched to have earned this award. Sarah Kelly flew well and picked up the John Green (best score under 30 years). Of note is the Presidentís Trophy. This is indicative of how hard we worked to finish the contest due to the weaker conditions. Kevin Ford flew a 29.8 MPH Presidents which is about 10-15 MPH slower than most of the previous winners. Even so Kevinís skill was apparent since he flew faster than the rest of us. Ted Beckwith purchased #021 in Feb 07 at the SSA convention and worked hard to clean her up and added many nice touches grabbing him the 07 Spiffy. Thanks Tom and Harry for all the great work.

Now for the final results. Jeff Daye flew a consistent contest and earned top honors as the 2007 Champion. Jeff has been instrumental in Association organization and was a real social spark at the contest. It is nice to see a new young Champion. Kevin Ford was in the top group coming in second with his methodical method of winning contests. The gentleman of the 1-26s, Bob Hurni finished up with third.

Team flying was closely contested with the Anderson/Kelly team just taking the lead over Denaples/Schwartz by a mere 36 points. We are talking seconds or less than 1/4 mile between these teams. Bourbeau/Miller came in with the third place team award.
