I hope most of the people on this group followed the WSMClive.com site run by Chris Taylor, during the World Space Modeling Championships in Slovakia a month ago.

If you didn't, then check it out:

wsmclive.com

There are links there to download the final results from each day's events.

Sorry to "spoil" it for those who didn't see it before, but I'll briefly mention two highlights for the U.S. team, in chronological order.

(or stop reading this, go to WSMClive.com, check it all out, then resume here).

On Wednesday Sep 5th, the US Senior S8E/P (R/C Rocket Glide) Team won a bronze medal. The team members were Matthew Berk, Kevin Johnson, and myself.

The next day, in cold and very high winds, the Junior S8D (D R/C Rocket Glide) Team came in 4th, missing bronze by 7 seconds. The members were Alyssa Stenberg (just turned 13), Zack Stenberg ( age 8), and Brendan O'Bryan ( age 10). Brendan is the son of Dave O'Bryan who flew on the US Team in the 1990's and in 2000 and 2002, before returning this year. One member of the Junior team managed to win a bronze medal. If you do not already know, you need to see WSMClive and/or the video to find out who.

I've made up two videos about the Junior and Senior Rocket Glide Teams (S8D and S8E/P), and also posted two versions of some dancing at the banquet (starring in part, Robert Alway)

I've posted the video about the US JR S8D Team on Vimeo, at this link:

Hey, George. Really nice videos and pictures but I especially like the one of the scale room. ;) Congratulations again on the S8E win.
