What a great day it turned out to be.  We had 11 pilots at the pilots meeting, but ended up flying with 9 for the day after some technical problems.  It was cold and breezy in the morning and moved to moderate and breezy in the afternoon. We had a few pops offs early in the day, and some of us needed to use the entire start line left to right just to get the plane in the air.  (I'm going to use  the excuse that the winch lines have been wound up all winter and was pulling me sideways across everyone's winch lines.)  I had a blast and came home with all parts intact.  That's a win for me!  I was 277 points away from pulling my Flight Group 1 sticker off my wing.  Maybe next time.  Thanks to everyone for coming out to start our DARTS season.
