Yes, what a brilliant day!

Thanks so much to Bruce for leading us, the Board for making the BBQ happen and special thanks to Graham for feeding us all.

Congratulations to Richard on earning his MAAC wings (in the Cub competition!)

Great Canada Day weekend!

Hi Bruce:

Thanks for organizing CUB DAY and to the directors for running it complete with BBQ (you're a great cook Graham). I flew my L4 Grasshopper (38" W.S. - photo attached) and my UMX Carbon Cub (24" W.S.). Finally got the C of G right on in the workshop for both planes by end of Saturday (really had to move the batteries far forward like placing them deep inside the fuselage and by adding extra nose weight). I test flew both planes at the field this morning. Both planes flew OK with the new CG but the L4 was underpowered so I did not fly it for the Cub Contest. I loved the contest even though I used my Apprentice (yup it's not a Cub) but I knew I could loop that one. Most of the events reminded me of training nights like doing touch and goes, some loops, attempting to land on the runaway (not the grass) so I thought I would fly in the contest with the objective of just finishing all the steps. My touch and go was more like "splat and bounce" but I like to call it a "carrier landing". Simon was probably calling out "flare!, flare!" but I was happy to take the "splat".

Too bad the wind worked against the lighter cubs flown by BJ and Vadim.

I'm happy I got my "wings" - I did not imagine that it would happen like this (during Cub Day etc.). Thanks to all the instructors for their patience with "the trainee" during last year's and this year's training season.

It was also great to see a packed field with all the pilots and their airplanes. Lots of non-Cubs but at least they were yellow and even if they weren't it was great to see such a variety all at the same time and place. Hopefully next time we won't get rained out until the day's flying is done!

Great to read that Rob was the winner of the $7,000,000.  Just try to collect.  Careful, don't knock on Bruce's door to collect.  Cha-Cha, his 6 pound killer dog will make quick work of the collection issue.  Problem solved. :D

You beat up on my poor little Cub.  I just weighed it.... 11.9 oz. or about 1/4 the weight of yours!  Pick on someone your own size.  I heard more than once today that size does matter. :)
Too bad Richard could not fly his E-Flite cub, the same as mine.  I cheated because I did not follow the instructions.  The motor on mine is a 3 cell 300, not the recommended 2 cell 250. As well, the battery was a 700 mah.   All to get the weight farther forward.  There is nothing more difficult than flying a tail-heavy Cub.  It wallows and then does a death roll if it even smells a tail-heavy condition.

Great photos...  Great video.  Great time... 

My apologies, to BJ.  Somehow, in my earlier post, I missed BJ in the list of honorable mentions in yesterday's event ... sorry.

PS - Life moves on.  It looks like another flying day today.
