Organization: Dover Systems Date: Fri, 24 Jun 94 14:58:00 EDT Lines: 41 Day 2 of the 1994 U.S. Standard Class Nationals was held on Thursday June 23rd. A high pressure dominated the area with winds aloft not as strong as the previous day. The terminal forecast was for scattered clouds at 4000 feet AGL with a chance of some broken clouds at 25,000 feet. The local sounding indicated that there should be slightly higher cloudbases. Visibility 35 miles. Surface winds from the northwest at 10 to 15 knots. The task was a 219.31 mile quadrilateral course. The first leg went east to Dean Memorial airport in Haverhill, New Hampshire, then north to turn at the Colebrook, NH airport not too far from the the VT/NH/Quebec border junction (it gets a bit rural up there). From there it was west to Jay Peak, VT and then south to finish back at Sugarbush. Lift for the day was mostly 3 to 4 knot thermals. Jim Payne reported that his flight computer recorded 2.7 knots total average climb for the flight. The first 2/3rds of the course was marked by cumulus clouds with some large blue areas. A high layer of broken to overcast clouds moved in from the south and reduced lift for the final third of the course. Friday and Saturday appear to be non-flying days as a low pressure system approaches and spreads clouds and rain over the northeastern U.S. UNOFFICIAL DAY 2 SPEEDS received from the scorer at 7 P.M. Thursday night. No turnpoint photos have been interpreted yet so standings may change. NOTE: I should have cumulative scores with my next posting. 1 Garner, James Discus 59.83 miles per hour 2 Cundiff, Roy Discus 59.21 3 Payne, Jim Discus 59.03 4 Jacobs, Douglas ASW 24 58.75 5 Murray, John ASW 24 58.32 6 Byrd, John Discus 57.75 7 Walters, Rick Discus 57.57 8 Walker, Jae Discus 57.56 9 Philbrick, Pat Discus 56.96 10 Nixon Jr., Hank ASW 24 56.88 11 Opitz, Mike ASW 24 56.21 12 Striedeck, Karl ASW 24 55.60 - Randy email@example.com
