Contest Day 1 Summary

Well, everyone made it home yesterday. The day winner was Sebastian Kawa (Poland) with a speed of 121 km/h. Second place pilot Friedeman Kuster (Germany) was only 8 sec behind. Tim made it home, but a thunderstorm formed right between the airport and the last turnpoint. He landed in the rain and we took the last spot in the packed hangar, completely drenched. Tim was not actually last! Our friend Vladimir Foltin (Slovakia) hung out beyond the storm and came in 57 minutes after the first place finisher.

The weather for today...
Today there are storms to our east associated with a cold front. We expect another met report at 12:45, because there may be a small window for flying.
