Great weekend. And another admirable show as both CD and competitor from you Eric. I feel bad abandoning early but I misunderstood the plan. The "Boogie" will be on my must-go list again for next year.

Boogie recap -

Tony delivered on his promise to "Agitate....Aggravate....and.....Participate". Wouldn't be the same without ya bud. It pains me to publicly admit that Tony is a top level Advanced pilot, but his son Cody has turned out to be a real acro prodigy and took first in Advanced away from his dad by killing the Unknown. Cody - it's not really fair, since you get better coaching than your dad does.

Eric A "body bagged" it again and gets the award for the most amount of junk crammed into an S-1. He flew a close 2nd place Intermediate Known flight, but ended up giving it up to a couple of Intermediate "lifers"...one of them being Danny Bond, who borrowed my airplane this time.

Glen Becker flew top shelf Sportsman, but succumbed to the wrong-way syndrome in the Free. Had a cool mix of airplanes in Sportsman - a Bueker Jungmann, Super Chipmunk, Pitts S-1S, and an Extra 330LX, all flying at a high level, separated only by a few points.

All monoplanes in Advanced, moving on....

We were expecting to have four Unlimited pilots this time, but turned into another two man 4-cylinder battle between myself and a 1D pilot. Danny was borrowing my plane and accidentally put twice the amount of gas in my plane that I normally fly with, which makes a big difference for me. I made the bad decision to just jump the airplane early without walking through the Known sequence at all, and drone around for 20 minutes trying to burn off gas right before my flight. The CDing and fuel snafu caused me to lose focus and I just blanked after flying the first figure and was not in the right mental state to be flying at such low altitudes, so I knocked off the rest of the flight. 17% Known flight. Ha. I was able to carve out a little quiet time before the Free and Unknown, and had a pretty decent 79% Free flight, and a 72% Unknown flight which included a zero and an interruption, so that helped the morale a bit. Should have broken earlier for altitude in the Unknown, but got to the push tailslide and just didn't have the altitude for the rolls on the downline, so didn't do them and interrupted. Sure would be easier with a little more HP and roll rate.

Thanks everyone for coming and supporting the contest. Hope everyone had a good time.

Sounds like a well-run event Eric. CDing and flying is hard.

Hats off for making the tough (but probably wise) decision to abandon the Known. Better luck next time.

WELL HOTT DIGITTY!!!! We sure did have a big ole time at the boogie this year. This was my 1st time being able to attend this contest & I sure hope it won't b my last! I appreciate Eric bearing the brunt of putting this thing together while flying unlimited as well! Thanks as well to Danny & Lori bond for teching & working on the office. Great job to all! And ur right Eric...I definitely get much better coaching than dad does! He already told me that during our next session he's gonna give me some "bad critiquing"! Lol. Until the next time, BOOGIE ON!!!

Hey Cody,

Congrats on the win! The one thing I'll always miss about competing are those magical flights where it all comes together. We'll you and Tony be at Sebring next month?

Unfortunate bill, dad & I will not b able to make it to Sebring next month! Wish I could make it down to support Ron & chapter 23 but I just can't swing it. Here's a pic of several of us Iac 3 guys standing in front of mark meridith's absolutely beautiful chipmunk after the contest!

I 2nd everything Cody said it was a blast , Eric as usual does a fantastic job juggling all the different parts of the contest, but this time He let his buddy Danny mess him up, they ain't but so much juggling you can do no matter how talented you are.

Knowing this picture of us with our trophies would be posted on The Biplane Forum I thought I would be a style setter with the redneck capris . ��

Tony, not just one. It seems I have several like that.

And here's some video in which it continues almost appearing. The problem is two many wings in the way. https://youtu.be/fHiL0uZR4qA

The Wildwood Acroblast (WWD) can't be much farther than Warrenton for you. Come on up, I'll take more bad pictures.

Glen I would love to make the Cape may contest but 700 statute is a little over my limit for a regional contest, 500 is about it for me .
But if I knew for sure that I'd get a good pic of the "chihuahua" I might consider it !

Understood, that is a haul and quite a commitment. I would be hard-pressed to do 500. I'm lucky to have 5 contests within 200nm.
I'll hope to see you at Warrenton and/or Farmville.
