After a morning of preparations, a contest day is underway now! The Competitors were able to get enough height in the start area and headed out on the task at 2:35 pm local time.
Tim was interviewed by Russian TV this a.m. - here is the link www.3channel.ru - if they do a story, you should see it in a few hours. There has been press all over this comp - two TV crews today, one yesterday, one over the weekend, and a flock of print reporters. So we are keeping busy with interviews as well as the usual contest stuff.
Here is our glider...lucky '66'
Note air museum of old Russian planes in background...oh wait, it is not a museum, they are all in use!
I'll let you know how the racing turns out in a couple of hours.
