    For everyone, they posted all of today's quals at reports.airrace.org. Weather looks like we're done for today.

    wadeh, Thanks for the detailed update!

    -Glad to hear Shanty Irish isn't too bad.
    -It's showing the Yak at 346. A little slower than everyone was assuming.
    -The fast Sports were supposed to go up in the second session which is not happening. 39 was supposed to have a whole new cowl with a different exhaust outlet so that might be part of the story.
    -The grandstands have been a part of the discussion on social media. They couldn't get the larger grandstands this year so they did what they can. RARA is hoping that the cost of a reserved seats in the large permanent grandstands being the same as a general admission ticket will keep people at ease.
    -The class sizes are mostly the same as last year. I'm pretty sure all of them were slated to be larger, but each class had a handful of drops the past few weeks that brought us back to last year's numbers. Sport is down 2 from last year.

    From those of us who couldn't be there - much appreciated
    From the updates on the qualifying times to the detailed accounts... makes not being there a lot easier.

    Haven?t looked at the official times but, the jets are cooking. Here?s my two lap average for Viper from the fence. 777 isn?t very far behind but, looks like Viper found the correct power setting. Absolutely sanitary session. Sports were hitting decent rain in the VOS. Speeds obviously down. Dusty had the Yak wound up and he was on a really good line. Weather dragged him down for sure. Really slow conditions. Big lightning strike on the field shut everything down during jet quals and everything was over.

    Thanks for the update fence. The timing has been really out of wack today. Viper was originally at 522 and got knocked down to 503. The Yak is far off the pace that I?m hearing everyone at the field saying it was running. The originally had it at 346, and it got knocked down to 330 (and the reports site is really messed up on speed).

    Really hoping this gets ironed out. If not, I guess who is fastest will just be decided on the course.

    I had him at 329. Sounded great and looked really fast. It was an odd number. Not sure what happened. From pylons 2-5.

    I posted this originally over in the thread I created for Will's updates, he's getting his tent transformed into a "datacenter" so he can post updates... here's what I posted there

    Will is camping out at the field, just gave me a visual report, he could hardly see 395 lights from the shopping center!

    He has some updates coming as soon as he gets his tent into the 21 century LOL Has laptop and hopefully hotspot access as soon as he's set up..

    I took some notes but I can hardly read them!!

    Dusty had a stack fire, should be all is well tomorrow!

    Scotty Crandlemire was DQ'd Black Flagged actually for "low and erratic flying" Will has video or photos that show otherwise, I think an appeal is pending..

    Thunder Mustang lunched engine on takeoff, barely made the field, big bounce on landing.

    OK I'm not doing Will any justice here and with his approval once he gets here, I'll merge the two threads that we've now got going..

    Too bad they didn't talk to me! Mark and I could have had them up, at least, a vbulletin message board.. in as long as it took for the nameserver changes to propagate (1-4 days) I seriously doubt that their current website or any iteration of it before was hosted on anything but a shared server environment. I hate to remember it but I'm pretty sure they were/are hosted at word press....

    YECH!

    In 2011, you could not get through to their site for hours, our dedicated server in a huge big bandwidth datacenter never skipped a beat..

    NOT fishing for a job, I'm officially OUT of the web hosting business! I absolutely freaked and was stressed beyond belief when the server I had at the time, which hosted the heritage cup and a couple other websites... Anyway when Texas had the big chill, we were forced to move..

    But the downtime forced heritage, at least, to move... Bummer because I'd hosted it from day one..

    Oh well... nuff of my personal story LOL
