That's a strange feeling to have seen the routine being flown and filmed in the afternoon and then viewing it on the Internet the next morning. Thanks Mike.

The team did great with with the added burden of the fickle winds that existed during the afternoon. Several of us formed a team over in the corner of the flying field and practiced a few figures ... the fickle winds combined with our general lack of skill demonstrated conclusively to any onlookers how good 180GO was Sunday.

BTW, we even came up with a name for our team(?) ... "Clowns Go" seemed to fit quite nicely.

Cheers,
Tom

Sometimes! We had more room to back up in the demo field and we wound up backing all the way to the rope on several demos. Or it gusted to where we were worried about breaking our 2 wraps. Or it shifted 90 degrees....

But that's Midwest winds for ya. In Berkeley,California they were complaining about the uneven winds and I thought they were really smooth. All depends on what you're used to flying in!

This was one of the better Perry Farms fests in quite a few years, we had a lot of fun.
Ann, the announcer, even got Nick's name right--every time!

Ann deserves high praise for her announcing. She did all of the stuff that you expect of announcers, but never seem to experience. She was clear, consistent, informative, accurate and sprinkled in a little humor now and again.

Thanks Ann, you did a great job!
