November’s Flying Events Competition found 28 pilots scanning in for a cold morning of flying. William Blizzard was the hare taking to the sky with a quick ground wind. Those that got airborne quickly had that same breeze and a chance of making it to the target. Those that waited for the ground wind to calm, found themselves struggling to get the distance and direction to the target. Two pilots made it close enough to drop a marker. Natasha Stanke (10.82m) and Bobby Richardson (25.40m).

2nd place – Grasshopper earning 50 points with a time of 32.69 seconds
1st place – Team Sandia Sunrise earning 75 points with a time of 32.54 seconds
