SOARING GROUP REPORT
Five members of LCMFA have been busy the early part of this season competing in and working at soaring competitions in Michigan and Indiana. The five members are Bob Robinson, Barb Robinson, Ken Shaw, Chris Hawkins, and Steve Zahn. Four of our members competed in the Woody sailplane contest in Muncie IN June 4-5. The Woody contest requires that the planes be built or from plans or a kit, no ARF’s allowed. Bob Robinson took first place in the longest flight and in the ladder event for traditional winch launched sailplanes. Chris Hawkins took first place in the longest flight in the electric sailplane event.
June 11-12 three members (Bob Robinson, Barb Robinson, and Ken Shaw) were at the Little Finger Thermaleers club field at Maple City, MI for the annual Early Summer Soar-In. Barb Robinson was Contest Director of the two day event; Bob Robinson took two second place trophies in Unlimited class (windspan of over 100”) and Ken Shaw took two second places in RES (Rudder-Elevator-Spoiler) and a third place in ALES (Electric sailplane).
Ken Shaw and Bob Robinson will be leaving for Louisville, KY for the Derby Soar on June 24-26.
