Day 2

At the 1-26 National Championships, Thursday, Friday and Saturday were all no- contest days due to hot, hazy and humid weather contributing to stable conditions. Late Saturday a weak front came through and cleared things out, so they launched the grid on Sunday for the second official contest day. Today (Monday) looks good for another, while a front expected on Tuesday could dampen things. However, the final day on Wednesday looks good so far. There was only one finisher yesterday (Pat Tucky). Day 1 was a POST task while Sunday's was a 65 mile out and return. Since the conditions were expected to be weak (93F/80% humidity) the director designed the turnpoint to be easily landable, but most pilots ended up landing just short of the airport after rounding the TP as conditions improved a bit. Here are the totals so far (unofficial) for the top 10:

Day 3

On Monday, July 1, the contestants were sent out on a 2 hour POST task. Weak conditions prevailed under a shelf of cirrus resulting in an unseating of the previous top three pilots. Tuesday was a no- contest day due to overdevelopment, but Wednesday looks like it might be the best day weather-wise.
