7th and Final Official Practice Day

We are happy to add and welcome Christian Streifeneder to the US Team as additional crew for Dick Butler.  DB and crew are busy today further prepping Concordia for the beginning of competition on Sunday.  John Seaborn, Dave Leonard, Bill Elliott, Gary Ittner and Ron Tabery will all be flying today.

Last evening, a lovely breeze arrived at the airport during the combined Team Austria/Team Germany party.  The party was a great one and made even nicer by this "sea breeze front".  Although we're still under dry conditions and high pressure, Dan Gudgel forecasts a return to more "Uvalde-like" conditions by Sunday as moisture from the sea breeze flows into the contest area.  

The launch is about to begin!
