We need some more Temac guy's to reply for the race next Sun. at the present we have 8, lets get it up to 10 or 11. I am up at the Soo now, returning on the 28th., the weather is great up here but it looks like it will be cool for the race. Also planning a BBQ, sausages and weiners on a bun, just something simple. This will just cost a small donation to cover the cost.

Ken,

Keep it simple.  We will find a way to staff the necessary spots and have fun regardless.

It looked like a wonderful day for racing/flying.  I hope you boys did TEMAC proud.  (Frank, even second last won't be bad)  :D

Bruce and all members:

re:   "I hope you boys did TEMAC proud.  (Frank, even second last won't be bad)  :D"

We had a great time in Orangeville.  11 people raced.  The most ever.  Ken Fluney and his boys were wonderful hosts as well.  A beautiful sunny, little wind, warm day.  Then the carnage racing started.

See Greg's photos: https://photos.app.goo.gl/JrrXCsnTO5JUCBgh2


In the first race between Mike and Greg Hazelton (no love lost), Greg's plane caught terra firma on takeoff, spun around and broke the nose on his plane.
In the 3rd race, I took off, then accidentally hit the elevator dual rate... to full... and my plane went all over the place.  Throttle back and there was not enough aileron authority,  throttle up and it went all over the sky.  Augered it in at full speed.  The spinner was buried 6" into the soft ground.  Plane absolutely destroyed.  It will not be showing up at the next Repair Class.  The spinner was buried deep but still this side of China.
A few races later I was calling cuts at the number 3 pylon and I ducked when Ken Smith's plane hit the pylon, took a divot out of his wing and fell to the ground in front of me.

The racing was fast and furious.  Michael did great on his EF-1 debut and finished all 4 races.  Glenn, Simon and Mike H. had varying success but at least they kept flying.

Yes Bruce.  I came second last just as you predicted by virtue of the fact that Greg never took off and I completed at least 1 lap.  Not very pretty.

The day of a thousand laughs.... at 150 kmh!

Frank

"varying success????"

I'd say coming home from the event with an intact airplane is a TOTAL SUCCESS!

Had a great time, lots of laughs and some spirited competition.
