    Thanks Jim:
    I sure did! ECRM-44 was one of the best attended East Coast Regional Meets I can remember. we had 33 competitors from 6 different NAR Sections repersenting 6 states. While the weather Saturday wasn't the greatest Very Hot & Muggy, Rain only showed up as sprinkles early in the morning. Sunday was somewhat better Humidity wise but we picked up a steady breeze 8-13mph with gusts building to 20mph by about 11:30, Temp topped out at about 87 a little lower then 90deg f on Saturday.

    ECRM-44 events were: Random Duration(45sec), B-Eggloft Altitude(with Altimeters), Open Spot Landing, 1/2A-Streamer Duration, 1/2A-Rocket Glider, & Classic Model.

    I could only make it out on Sunday so of the 6 events I chose to fly only 4, OSL, 1/2A-SD, 1/2A-RG & Classic Model flying the Micro Geo-Sat LV. 3-motor clustered Down-Scale.
    Due Mainly to my outstanding recovery crew, consisting of Son John jr, His wife Vicky & my better 2/3rds Mary returning 1/2A-SD & 1/2A-RG from Chest High Hay almost 3/4 mile away, I was able to finish with 3 out of 4 First Place Trophies and with those scores ended up as C-Division Meet Champion. 1st in OSL @ 1.66m from the spot. Single flight in 1/2A-RG with 84seconds, and the Geo-Sat LV finished with 740 static points + 145 flight points for a total of 885points out of 1100.
    By far my best competition outing in at least a decade Again have to Thank my outstanding recovery crew for some truly Amazing Returns!

    Photo's of the flights below! I actually caught the Geo-Sat LV Cluster Liftoff.

    Outstanding....Congratulations Champ!!!

    Nice pile of rocket bling....AND you earned every single one for years of persevering in this hobby/sport!

    Of course I realize kudos also belong to your wonderful recovery crew, with out their help, victory may have been significantly tougher, if not impossible.
    I now need help with my recoveries also.... traipsing around fields is a younger mans folly, not mine anymore...LOL

    Recently I dug out some low power & micro stuff to fly again, also fell for recent "ESTES" super sale. Seems so much more "user friendly" than 15-20lb beasts and hauling them all over the place...LOL
    But then you are much wiser....having known this....all along.!!
