Bob Hatschek Memorial FAI Challenge

May 30 - 31, 2015

Barron Field, Wawayanda NY

Here are the results from the Bob Hatschek International Challenge, May 30-31, 2015, from contest director Alan Abriss.
We had five competitors in each of F1A, F1B, and F1Q, four in F1G, plus tenin other AMA and FAI events, and many others flew FAC events.
Highlights included the max-out win by Carrol Allen in F1B, and the performances by Peter Barron winning F1A, Dick Ivers winning F1Q, Tom Juell winning P-30, Tom Vaccaro winning Coupe, and Drake Hooke maxing out in electricB. Strong Saturday afternoon winds led to a decision to a deciding five minute max round at 6am Sunday morning. This pitted Peter with his latest flapper against Jama Danier with his high-climbing LDA. Peter still had good height when he DT'ed at 5 minutes for the win.

Skyscraper Annual

June 21-22, 2014

The weather was sunny, warm, and calm both days, with little drift. One highlight is the reemergence of gas fliers Ron Mongres (with his first win in classic gas) and Drake Hooke, so that along with Clarke Darling, Gene Pailet, and Al Vollmer, we have a more substantial presence in Free Flight Gas. Another highlight is the dominance of Carrol Allen, both Coupe (F1G), with a max-out, and Wakefield (F1B), just one second ahead of Tom Vacarro. Bob Sifleet maxed out to win F1H, and Igor Fradkin came from behind to win Nordic (F1A). Yuda Avla won E-36 in a flyoff against Dick Ivers. Larry Pelatowski maxed-out to win P-30. Bob Sifleet's grandson Joel Yuri flies well in F1A and F1Q, with an especially good performance in Electric (F1Q), as second overall and top Junior.

Hatschek International Challenge

May 31 - June 1, 2014

Here are the results of the Hatschek International Challenge May 31 and June 1, 2014 at Barron Field (AMA sanction number 1080) for FAI, AMA, and Nostaglia free-flight events, with Dave Acton CD. Concurrently there was a fine meet of FAC flying run by Eddie Pelatowski. The weather was gorgeous Sunday (sunny, very calm, and mild temperature), but Saturday it was too windy for some of the fliers (e.g. Don Rousseau's first round F1G flight whisked off in a windy thermal and landed in a distant tree causing it to take a while to extract). All other flights stayed comfortably on the field, leading to keen competition in F1H and F1Q and in Sunday's events. Here we show the placing, the round scores and the totals for each event. Leading zeros are used to maintain simple formatting. Likewise names (which are variable in length) are placed at the end of each line.

Hatschek International Challenge

June 8 - 9, 2013

Skyscraper Annual

June 22 - 23, 2013

Barron Field, Wawayanda, NY

In June this year were some fine Free Flight competitions at our field in Wawayanda, NY. The first was the Hatschek International Challenge (previously known as the Skyscraper International Challenge, now renamed in honor of Bob Hatschek), which was ultimately held June 8-9, 2013 (sanction number 13-1758). The second was the Skyscraper Annual held June 22-23, 2013 (sanction 13-1416). I apologize for not getting these result reports out sooner.


A highlight of these meets was continued dominance by our young adult and youth flyers, plus some older flyers newly returned to the sport in recent years or new to flying at Wawayanda.
At the Hatschek Challenge, F1B was won by Brian Pacelli finishing with a score of 1306 seconds, just two seconds ahead of Carrol Allen, F1H was won by junior Gina Barron ahead of Bob Sifleet, F1G was won by Yuda Avla, just four seconds ahead of Tom Vaccaro, B-30 was won by Tom Juell, ahead of Bill Buss and Don Rousseau, with junior fliers Rebecca Avla and Joel Yori not far behind, and another new to our flying scene, Tony Loomis did fine in catapult posting a nice individual flight of 74 seconds on his way to second place. The full results are recorded below.
At the Skyscraper Annual, the top two spots in F1B and the top four spots in F1A were by young adult and junior fliers. They achieved excellent total times (max-out and near max-out) in turbulent and mildly windy conditions that scared off some of the older fliers. F1B was won by Sarah Radziunas with a near max-out (only 13 seconds drop on one flight) with Brian Pacelli not far behind. F1A was won by Timothy Barron with a max out, with Peter Barron second, junior Joel Yori third and junior Gina Barron fourth, ahead of myself and Bob Sifleet. Other popular events included F1G, won by Tom Vaccaro, P-30 with seven contestants, won by Bill Buss, and the All Gas combined, with six contestant postings, lead by Clark Darling, Al Vollmer, and Arnold Waldner. For the specifics and for additional event results see the details also below.


An editorial comment: the conditions at the Annual were challenging but not as windy as some who left thought they would be. For instance, during Timothy's max out win in F1A, only one flight went past the road at the middle of the field. Those who flew got a chance to learn which models were the best thermal performers. In my case, seeing other models thermal much better than my hybrid airfoil model led me to make three changes to it (shorter fuselage, 4dm rather than 3.5 dm stab, and thinned the wing airfoil toward the rear to move the high-point forward -- yes, a significant surgery). Practice sessions alone had not revealed the extend of the need for these improvements.


Here are the results. I write either Challenge (for the Hatschek International Challenge formerly the Skyscraper Challenge) or I write Annual (for the Skyscpraper Annual) before each event so that the recorders for America's Cup, National Cup, and Team Selection (junior and open) can get it right, along with the rest of us. The last column reports total. The contestant name is at the end of each line to facilitate column alignment.


Thermals,
Andrew Barron, on behalf of CDs Alan Abriss and Dave Acton

Wilbur & Orville Contest

August 17 - 18, 2013

Barron Field, Wawayanda, NY

The Wilbur and Orville freeflight meet on August 17 & 18 was the highlight of our contest season in the north-east so far. The weather was perfect, light and variable winds, typically only about 1 mph. The best results were in E-36 and F1B where most competitors maxed out and went into flyoffs. Tom Vaccaro came out on top in F1B in a flyoff against Brian Pacelli, Sarah Radziunas, and Ron Felix, with a dramatic seven minute max with very little drift. Rich Ivers won E-36 in a flyoff against Jim Coffin, Dave Lacey and Dick Ivers (with only four seconds difference between Jim, Dave, and Dick). Other Max out wins were by Bob Sifleet in F1H and Peter Barron in F1A (just ahead of an excellent Junior performance by Bob's grandson Joel Yori, who is competing for a spot on the Junior free flight team). See photos of the meet here.

Wilbur & Orville Contest

August 25 - 26, 2012

Barron Field, Wawayanda, NY

Here is a report on the Wilbur and Orville America's Cup and National Cup meet August 25 - 26 at Barron Field in Wawayanda, New York.
Sarah and Kathy Radziunas did a great job with organization and score keeping. It made the CD job easy. Both days the winds were light and variable in the mornings, so we flew from the middle of the field. In the afternoons the winds were steady from the East, South-East. We made a whole strip of the sod be the flight line, so those that used the golf carts to go sufficiently up-wind before launching would usually avoid landing in the neighboring crops, while those who did not venture as far up-wind would then need to do some crop retrieves.
There were max-out wins by Dick Ivers in E-36 and in F1Q, by Andrew Barron in F1A, and by Tom Vaccaro in F1B and F1G. Carrol Allen also maxed out in F1G, finishing second behind Tom in the flyoff.

Skyscraper Annual

June 23-24, 2012

Here are the results of the SkyScraper Annual June 23-24, 2012 at Barron and Ford Fields, Wawayanda, NY, with CD Dave Acton. Saturday the winds were consistently from the West-Northwest, so we set up on the Ford Fields so that the longer flights would drift to Barron field. Sunday the winds were mostly light and variable so we set up in the center of thecollection of fields. We kept the maxes for FAI at 3 minutes, though we did need to deal with field boundary issues for one of the rounds (when briefly stronger winds took some of the models to the Suback field on the other side of the Walkill river). Unfortunely one of the models landed in a tree along the river. A thirty minute delay gave time for model recovery. Subsequently, the wind switched to more favorable conditions. Highlights of the flying include the max out win by Sarah Radziunas in F1B with Tom Vaccaro and Brian Pacelli were just six seconds back (their tie was broken by the timing of the first round flight to the ground as aprovisional flyoff). Tom's still-air time was 6 minutes and 28 seconds. Note how strong the field of competition was in F1B, with Aram Schlosberg, Carrol Allen, Roger Morrell and Wes Murrell not far behind. In F1P Brian Pacelli continued his string of max-outs, as he prepares for the Junior World Champs (in F1P and F1B). Yuda Avla maxed-out to win F1G with Don Rousseau just six seconds back. Arnold Waldner maxed-out in 1/2A Nostalgia and Vic Nippert maxed-out to win 2Bit+1. Bill Buss bested Larry Pelatowski in a flyoff to win P-30 after both maxed out. Here are the details of these Skyscraper Annual results, per the score sheets Dave Acton passed to me. Here (Jr) denotes FAI junior in FAI events and AMA junior in AMA events.

Skyscraper International Challenge

May 26-27, 2012

Americas Cup and National Cup competition

Below are the results of the Skyscraper International Challenge from May 26-27 at our field near Middletown, New York. I highlight first the performances of Junior fliers Jessica and Rebbeca Avla who finished 3rd and 4th in P-30 with good scores and only four seconds between them, and ahead of their dad and able assistant Yuda Avla. Jessica is our Bryton Barron perpectual award winner this year for excellent Junior performance with a model of her own construction. We are also proud of Timothy Barron (age 18) maxing out to win F1A. Also noteworthy are max-out wins by Tom Vaccaro in F1G, Dick Ivers in F1Q, Jean Pailet in F1J, Al Vollmer in 1/2 A Nostalgia Gas and Vic Nippert in Catapult Glider. Gina Barron (age 9) flew well in F1A and F1H (besting Jean Pailet by just one second). Note also Brian Pacelli's near max-out in F1B as he and Gina get ready for the up-coming Junior World Champs.
Teammate Michelle Barron (age 16) stayed home this week due to health concerns.

The weather was great Saturday morning and all day Sunday (calm and warm), though it did turn windy on Saturday afternoon. It calmed again Saturday evening as all six F1A fliers were out to practice the evening before their official flying Sunday. A range of capabilities were shown with both cambered wing models (that glide better) and low-drag-airfoil models (that show surprisingly height gain for the same launch energy).


Thermals,

Wilbur & Orville Contest

August 20-21, 2011

Barron Field

Wawayanda, NY

Here are the results of the Wilbur and Orville Society fall free flight Americas Cup contest August 20-21, 2011 (AMA sanction no 11-1654). One highlight includes the tight finish in F1B with only four seconds separating Aram, Ron, and Junior Wes Murrell. Another was the win by young junior flier Gina Barron (Age 9) in F1A against some competitors of considerably more years. Another junior Brian Pacelli maxed out in F1P.Saturday featured gloriously calm conditions for some of the best flying opportunity, and led to nice performance by several including Vic Nippert and Dave Lacey in electric events, Arnold Waldner in P-30, and Don Rousseau in F1G just a few seconds ahead of Bill Buss and Carrol Allen. Sunday, an excessively high wind arrived at about 12:30pm during round 5. Some had already completed their flights for that round. Gina Barron and Aram Schlosberg put up their winning flights in the extreme conditions toward the end of the round. Sarah Radziunas was able to find her F1B a couple of miles down wind in a stream after a long search. Unfortunately for Aram, one of his models did not DT in round 1 thermalling into the clouds soon after 7:30am and remains lost after a couple of days of search.

Skyscraper Annual

June 25-26, 2011

Americas Cup and National Cup competition

Here are the results of the Skyscraper Annual June 25-26, 2011. Highlights included max out wins by Kathy Radziunas in F1G, Tom Vaccaro in F1B, Andrei Kirilinko in F1C, Tom Juell in P-30, and Jean Pailet in 1/2 A Gas. Distinctive Junior performances were by the Avla sisters, Rebecca and Jessica in P-30 and Gina Barron in Catapult and three towline glider events. An unfortunate wind change Sunday afternoon put two models in trees. Carrol Allen got his back by an amazing climbing effort by him, whereas I resorted to a professional tree climber to get mine. Both models were retreived without a scratch: well, at least there were no scratches on the models. We stopped after round 6. Thermals, Andrew Barron

Skyscraper International Challenge

May 28-29, 2011

Americas Cup and National Cup competition

Here are results from the Skyscraper International Challenge. Highlights were the F1G battle in which Tom Vaccaro edged Kathy Radziunas with
last flight drama, as both were maxed out heading into that round. In F1B, Ron Felix maxed out to finish ahead of Aram Schlossberg, while last flight woes pushed back Tom Vaccaro and Sarah Radziunas and prevented an anticipated flyoff. In F1Q Dave Lacey had an impressive performance maxing out for the win, ahead of Rich Ivers for whom damage to his model prevented continuing his string of maxes. In F1C Andrei Kirilenko continued his steady flying with a max-out, likewise for Brian Pacelli with a max-out in F1P. These and other results are shown below including flying in F1A, F1H, HLG, Catapult, P-30, Nos. Gas and PeeWee30.


I wish to acknowledge Bob Hatschek, a driving force and commanding presence for many years of Skyscraper Challenge organization and flying. In this last year he has needed to cut back on his flying and it is the first year in my recollection that we have not had the dynamic of him at the flight-line in the hunt for F1G or other events. What is that dynamic of Bob Hatschek in Free Flight? Consider part of his 1962 poem in which he writes that Free Flight is ''A thrill, a challenge, a puzzlement. It's other guys like you, the world around, striving for the same graceful beauty of flight. It's comradeship across all human barriers. It's bull sessions through the wee hours. It's fierce competition with the highest of sportsmanship... 'Free as a bird' describes God's most unchained creation. Man's is a model airplane soaring birdlike in a thermal... Vicariously you soar with it...with its freedom.'' Here are the results for the challenge this year.

Sky-Scraper Annual

June 26-27, 2010

Barron Field

Wawayanda, New York

We are pleased to report on the Brooklyn Sky-Scraper Annual held June 26-27, 2010 at Barron Field in Wawayanda, New York. The winds were primarily from the southwest and light both days, allowing us to stay on the sod, with minimal use of adjoining farm fields. It was one of the most pleasant contests we have had at our field. We again had 40 contestants, matching the number from the previous month (the Sky-Scraper Challenge in May had 40 contestants in FAI/AMA/NFFS, plus 24 flyers in Flying Aces events). Among the hotly contested events were F1A, F1B, and World Cup F1Q.


In F1Q we used 15 second engine runs with 180 second maxes. Dick and Rich Ivers and David Lacey had impressive spiral climbs with models with generous wing area (corresponding to classic AB gas models) allowing for gentle floating glides. A brisk and powerful fourth round thermal took Rich's F1Q and Brian Pacelli's F1J off-property to an onion field where Brian was able to retrieve his quickly, but Rich was not. So we subsequently reduced to 10 second engine runs and 150 second maxes in F1Q. Otherwise on Saturday (except for a fly-away by Carrol Allen in F1G) conditions were calm enough that models stayed on-field. Dick Ivers previously won the Sky-Scraper Challenge and the Wilbur and Orville meets with max-outs and he continued his streak with a max-out win in this World cup F1Q.


Sunday the conditions were similar with light winds of variable direction so we set up in the middle of the field, and used a 240 second max for F1A and F1B for the 7:30am first round. In these still conditions nine out of eleven F1B contestants and four out of nine F1A contestants achieved the first round max. It stayed calm for most of the day, though the wind picked up for rounds six and seven making for some long retrieves (especially by Tom Vaccaro and Carrol Allen in F1B and by Tzvetan Tzvetkov and Michelle, Timothy and Andrew Barron in F1A). In F1B Ron Felix flew a model with a new variable diameter propellor for all seven rounds. Canadian Ladi Horak put in a good performance in his first trip to Wawayanda, dropping only 10 seconds in round six. Meanwhile Junior team member Brede Doerner dropped only 13 seconds in a stellar performance. Tom Vaccaro and Aram Schlosberg maxed out with Tom winning in the fly-off. This is the same order of first and second in F1B as in the Sky-Scraper Challenge last month. In recent weeks I have heard several notable flyers marvel at the level of torque that Tom is routinely able to wind into his rubber motors with the latest rubber from FAI Model Supply (John Clapp).

Other recent noteworthy F1B performances were Brede Doerner and Sarah Radziunas maxing out at the Wilbur and Orville meet (June 12-13). In F1A Junior Timothy Barron flew especially well for the win in this Sky-Scraper Annual. With consistent flying Igor Fradkin picked up second place (which pairs with his first at the Sky-Scraper Challenge for a nice start to the America's Cup) and Peter Barron won third. Gene Ulm and Junior team member Oliver Cai were flying well but were derailed by a tough round six. A mysterious electronic failure under tow in the first round impaired Andrew Barron. An encouraging level of performance was put in by Michelle Barron (age 14) who finished just 27 seconds behind second place.


Also noteworthy was Dave Rounsaville maxing out in F1P; Jean Pailet maxing out in F1J with Dave Rounsaville and Brian Pacelli not far behind; John Clapp maxing out in F1G to beat Tom Vaccaro by just 1 second, with Dave Lacey and Carrol Allen not far behind; seven year old Gina Barron pushing eventual winner Jean Pailet in F1H; Al Vollmer's dominance in catapult and Al maxing out in P-30 just ahead of Bill Buss and Vern Goodrich; Vic Nippert maxing out in E-36; and CD Don Rousseau nearly perfect in Mulvihill. I mention that Brian Pacelli also maxed out in F1P at the Wilbur and Orville meet two weeks earlier and focussed on his other event F1B at the SkyScraper Annual. He and fellow F1B flyer Brede Doerner appear specially well-prepared for the upcoming Junior World Champs. Brede was awarded the Dorothy Waddington Trophy for the best Junior Performance at the Sky-Scraper Annual with 1307 seconds in F1B.

Here are the scores from the Sky-Scraper Annual.

Skyscraper International Challenge

May 29-30, 2010

Americas Cup and National Cup competition

 

Here are results from last week's Skyscraper Challenge. Performances to highlight include Igor Fradkin just ahead of Peter Barron in F1A and Tom Vaccaro Just ahead of Aram Schlosberg in F1B. Note also that junior team member Brian Pacelli was in contention for the F1B win even until the last flight and that junior team member Brede Doerner had several good F1B flights as well, finishing fourth. Dave Rounsaville in F1P and Bob Sifleet in F1H had dominating performances. Note how close the finishes
were in F1G with Bill Buss maxing out to edge Tom Vaccaro by 4 seconds and in the hotly contested F1Q with Dick Ivers finishing not more than 10 seconds ahead of Rich Ivers and Dave Lacey.

To mention some of the outcomes of other well-contested events, Bob Sowder finished tops in the classic gas events, Al Vollmer beat Bob Sowder by 1 second in 1/4A Nostalgia, Bill Buss won P-30, Michelle Barron had a flyaway max to win Junior catapult glider, consistently strong Larry Pelatowski bested several in Open catapult, and Bob Morris accomplished a rare feat by besting Larry Pelatowski with his discus-launched HLG.It was great to see the young Juniors Taylor and Riley Pelatowski (Larry's grand-kids) flying junior catapult and junior HLG (won by Taylor), Gina Barron flying her classic towline, and Julie Barron competing well in F1A.We had 64 paid contestants (40 in FAI/AMA/NFFS and 24 in FAC with a little overlap). Eddie Pelatowski is thanked for well-run Flying Aces activity which has a growing number of participants.
Here are the scores from the scorebook provided by Lisa Paceli and Dave Acton -- Thanks, Andrew Barron

Skyscraper International Challenge

May 30-31, 2009

Americas Cup, Hartill Trophy, and National Cup competition

 

Dave Acton was CD and single-handedly ran the entry and scorekeepers table. The scores I provide are copied from his sheets. If you see any corrections let us know. We had 41 competitors flying FAI,AMA,NFFS events and 15 competitors in FAC events, separately run by Ed Pelatowski. We held 10 rounds in F1A,F1B,F1C,F1P. Saturday morning after the first round the wind shifted to be from the west, forcing flights from a turbulent area. Maxes Saturday were reduced to 150 after the second round. Sunday morning for the four minute max round at 7am, many did not take advantage of early calm at the start of the round and met challenging conditions when the wind picked up. Noteworthy performances in F1B were by Aram Schlosberg and Tom Vacarro with nearly perfect scores and young Brede Dofrner who had perfect scores on all five flights Saturday afternoon. Noteworthy in F1A were junior competitor Timothy B., who finished ahead of Bob Sifleet and Tzvetan Tvetkov, and Michelle B. who had the lead at the end of the first day. In F1C we were very pleased to have had a superlative effort by Andrei Kirilenko with a near max-out. F1P featured a tight race between junior Brian Pacelli and Skyscraper-of-the-year Dave Rounsaville; with Brian putting in the two days of flying to get the win.Rich Ivers and his father Dick Ivers (Sr) took the lead in the electric events with long strings of maxes, with Dick finishing on top after seven maxes in electric B, and five near-maxes in F1Q. Sunday saw some calming in the early afternoon. John Clapp and Don Rousseau took advantage of it in F1G to max four out of five flights, with John getting the win. Al Volmer won catapult glider both days. Vic Nippert thermalled for the win in hand launch glider. Bob Sowder and Gene Pailet battled it out in classic gas events. Bill Buss maxed two of three to win P-30. Carrol Allen posted top score in Dawn Unlimited. These and additional outcomes are shown below.

A fly-away noon Sunday by Julie Barron in Classic Towline with her rainbow colored Brilliant (designed and kitted by Denis Phalen) kept some of the Barrons occupied with the chase. It failed to DT and rose into the clouds heading northeast. Peter, Julie and I chased its signal by van along Interstate 84 past Middletown, Walden, and Newburgh. In Newburgh it changed direction now heading east, now two hours into the flight. We twice saw it as it decended to below line height. We hoped for a landing but it rose again over the Newburgh golf course and headed out over the wide Hudson river near the Newburgh-Beacon Hamilton Fish Bridge. We lost the signal at two and a half hours as it headed past Fishkill over mountains to the east-southeast. Aerial search the next day over those parts of New York and on into Connecticut was unsuccessful in part due to some unexplained interference precisely at her frequency. If it managed to fly another three hours it might have made it to the Atlantic. The flight and search we will long remember. Our apologies to any we may have inconvenienced by our absence Sunday afternoon in looking after field matters.

I hope to see many at next weeks Wilber and Orville competition (June 13-14) at our field. My next email will distribute word of its schedule. We certainly do not want to shortchange recognition of the winners and other very good flying in last weeks competiton. Here are the results of the Skyscraper Challenge.

Skyscraper Annual

July 5 - 6, 2008

Here are the results of the Skyscraper Annual from July 5 and 6 at Barron Field in Wawayanda, New York. Winds were calm and variable both days so we were able to set up mid-field. The FAI results and the AMA/NFFS results (courtesy of Lisa Pacelli) are listed below.

Highlights include the max-out by Sarah Radziunas in F1B (keeping pace with her younger sister Michelle Radziunas who won the previous contest), the max-out by junior Brian Pacelli in F1P, the three flight max-out in hand launch glider by junior Miles Johnson with no additional attempts needed to reach his perfect score, and Julie Barron's first max-out to win classic glider.

The calm conditions also facilitated good performances by open fliers inF1G, F1H, and F1J as you can see below. F1Q (electric) featured what may have been the first flyoff in this fascinating event. The classic spiral climb of the models by father and son, Richard (Dick) Ivers and Richard (Rich) Ivers were a joy to watch. We permitted 15 seconds motor run and two minute max for the five main rounds, 10 seconds for the first flyoff and 5 seconds for the second flyoff, which resulted in identical scores as they both dropped the same amount. A third flyoff flight (again with 5 seconds motor run) resolved matters.

The CD leadership of Dave Acton and able recording by Lisa Pacelli are appreciated. Thermals -- Andrew Barron

SkyScraper International Challenge

May 31/June 1, 2008

Here are the results from the SkyScraper International Challenge May 31/June 1, 2008. The conditions were difficult with much wind both days and some rain Saturday. The weather was not as good as we usually experience. Nevertheless, a reasonable number of competitors came and rose to the challenge. Sunday we were able to start with a 240 second max and then after two rounds of 180 we dropped the max to 150 seconds, and moved further west for the launches, landing primarily on the sod. As far as I am aware, none of the models landed in the line of trees downwind.I mention first some highlights. One is junior team flier Michelle Radziunas's near perfect performance winning F1B ahead of nine other fine competitors. An amazing level of flying given the conditions. Join with me in congratulating her! Also note the fine efforts by first time F1B fliers Jon Carothers and Brede Doerner from Connecticut! They are certainly sticking with it -- Friday at the weekly W&O building sessionBrede and his mom were making up many new motors!

Another highlight was the competition with California flier Brian van Nest, in his second meet in Wawayanda, NY. In very challenging conditions (needing a last round max to win) he was edged out by Bob Sifleet in F1H (congrats Bob!). While in F1A, when the tough turbulence caused every flier to experience attempts in tow, Brian closed with steady non-max flights (he said at the time that they were the hardest he had to work for) sufficient to pull out the victory among 11 competitors. (Both of these flights came after attempts, and the threat of second attempts leading to zero were very much present).Also impressive where the max outs in F1G and F1Q by Bill Buss and Rich Ivers respectively and the steady flying by Dave Rounsaville in F1J and F1P. Reported by Andrew Barron.

Skyscraper Annual

June 30 and July 1, 2007

Barron Field Wawayanda, NY

Here below are results from the Skyscraper Annual held June 30 and July 1 at Barron Field in Wawayanda, NY, directed by Dave Acton with assistance from Lisa Pacelli. Of special note was the performance by the Radziunas women! Sarah finished first in F1B Wakefield just ahead of Ron Felix and others. Her mother Kathy finished first in F1H Towline glider. Bob Gutai returned to the competition scene here and won F1J. Carrol Allen ended up on top in F1G. Dick Ivers maxed out in both the electric events F1Q and E-36, Don Rousseau maxed out in P-30, and yours truly in F1A. Larry Pelatowski won both open handlaunch and catapult glider (308 seconds), with Mike Shaw and Al Vollmer very close. Junior performances by Miles Johnson (second ahead of 8 others in F1A), and Brian Pacelli (first in four events) were also noteworthy. I take special pride in young Julie Barron's performance with her newly completed Brilliant towline glider designed by Dennis Phelan.The wind was from the Northwest both days so we flew from the adjoining Dean Ford field. There was some notable turbulence, but also some strong thermals. Non-maxes sometimes landed in Ford corn, most three minute maxes landed in our Barron Field sod beyond. I heard some complaints about having to deal with the corn and lack of golf carts (I just bought another that Saturday -- anyone want to help with the expenses for the ones we have or to buy more? if so contact me), but most participants made an effort to express their enjoyment and gratitude! Thanks! We retrieved Bob Hatschek's flyaway coupe from Mount Adam on the other side of the valley. Unfortunately Marian Whitney's flyaway nordic glider
never got another signal after about 25 minutes in the air, despite multiple ground and aerial searches for many miles on the line of flight.

INTERNATIONAL FAI CHALLENGE

Wawayanda NY,May 26 and 27, 2007

Here are the results from the Skyscaper Challenge May 26-27 (AMA sanction 07-0674), America Cup and National Cup competition. We had 38 competitors in FAI, AMA, SAM and Nostalgia events. Plus Eddie Pelatowski had 18 competitors in FAC. Conditions were superb both days.

SKYSCRAPERS

INTERNATIONAL FAI CHALLENGE

Wawayanda NY,May 27 and 28, 2006

We had a superb weekend May 27 and 28 for the Skyscraper Challenge, with light and variable winds both days. Lots of flying in FAI, also a fun time of flying in AMA, Nostalgia, Old Timer and FAC.Especially noteworthy is Ben Thomson maxing out to win F1A against a strong field of competitors. Ben has completed his first year of college in Toronto and is back home for the summer in Connecticut where he has been mentored by Art Ellis and FAI CD Dennis Phelan. Other college students who were present and did well include Sara Radziunas (from Connecticut at Renssaleer), Philip Scheiman (from Oregon or Washinton state going to school in Pennsylvania), and Peter Barron (from Connecticut at Purdue). We need to do all we can to celebrate their academic and modeling efforts. Bob Beidron from Virginia won F1B and there is a max-out tie in F1C between Andrei Kirilenko and Craig Gunder. Craig mentioned that his son (and former multi-time junior world champ) Austin built him a nice starter box when he was back from spring break at Stanford University (so that they can both be competing). I noted on SEN that Austin recently put in a good showing in Sacramento. Way to go.Andrei and Craig will resolve their tie at this coming weekend before the start of F1C at the Eastern U.S. Free Flight Championships (EUSFFC).

Skyscraper's Challenge
Wawayanda NY, May 28-29, 2005
America Cup/ National Cup

Here are the results from our contest last weekend at Barron Field. Participation was good. Weather was very nice most of Saturday (very calm except for one round). Sunday was mixed with wind sometimes turbulent interspersed with calm periods. AMA CD Tom Fennel and FAICD Aram Schlosberg ran the events well. Several flyers came from as far as Virginia, including Bob Sowderwho had fine performances in several gas events, Bob Biedron who oneF1B, and Gene Ulm who flew F1A in his first contest at our field. There were several max-outs in FAI including Tom Ioerger in F1G, Bob Sifleet in F1H, and Omer Erguner in F1A.Sarah Radziunas had all maxes except for 210 seconds in the four minute max first round. Great flying! Ben Thomson had a fine showing in F1A finishing 2nd overall with perhaps his best performance to date. (Sarah Radziunas, Ben Thomson, and Peter Barron are heading to college this fall -- wish them well.) The best single flight was by Krine Laffler: 726 seconds in Dawn Unlimited on Sunday morning.

For AMA and NFFS national cup events, the Junior events (age 14 and under) were sanctioned separately from the open events. For local award purposes juniors (marked with [J]) finishing among top three compared to open flyers are also recognized for that distinction.

For FAI events the Junior flying (for under age 18) is combined with the open, though marked with a [J] for America's Cup and Junior Team Selection purposes. (I believe Sarah, Ben, and Peter are FAI juniors this year butof age that they are not eligible for the current Junior Team Selection.)

Reported By Andrew Barron

Skyscrapers Annual Oct 16-17, 2004

We had a determined group flying in rugged conditions. The wind was 6 to 14 mph measured from ground (up to 20mph in air). Fortunately it came from a good direction, and we had a pleasant segment of sod to launch from at the southwest end of the field. Turbulence brought a number of flights to an early landing. For the FAI events Sunday we stopped after 5 rounds because models were beginning to tumble on the field. In FAI, Junior fliers (age 18 and under) won four out of five events, including Phil Scheiman who won F1B. Phil (from California) came the farthest to participate. Juniors also had a good showing in AMA and Nostalgia events, especially Brian Pacelli in HLG, Catapult, and 1/2 A Nostalgia. Here I list the FAI and AMA/Nostalgia results. Results for FAC and SAM events may be available from Tom Hallman and John Stott respectively. There were 44 participants altogether. -- Andrew Barron

Dawn Unlimited
(I don't have the score sheet, but I recall
seeing a nice flight by Red Lauffler)

Skyscrapers Challenge, Wawayanda, May 29-30 2004


It was very windy on Saturday, deterring many attendees, and many who came to keep their models safely in their model boxes. The minis were won by Tom Ioerger, Austin Gunder and Jean Pialet with sub max scores. The planned 3 late afternoon major FAI rounds were cut to a single one starting a 7 PM.

Sunday's weather proved to be completely different. The morning started with almost dead calm and only Andrew Barron was able to keep his super max score. By the third round we relocated up wind, after a models started flying over the trees along the river to the adjacent sod farms. As the day progressed the wind dropped and the last few rounds had plenty of thermals with long calm stretches.

There were three first time Nordic fliers - Michelle and Timothy Barron, and Bill Collish. Bob Biedron won Wakefield for the second consecutive time. Gil Morris won F1C with his old V aluminum flapper.

Dick Ivers won P 30 and had an interesting F1Q in a Wakefield frame. HLG was won by Larry Pelatowski and Al Vollmer won Catapult HLG with Larry close behind. Dawn, flown early Sunday, was won by Kaine Laffler. Julie Barron, the youngest contestant, flow Mulvihill. Mike Cook, Jean Pialet and Bobby Geyer won PeeWee 30, AMA Classic and 1/2 A Nostalgia respectively.

We also used a single plack to which more than one placing could be attached. And finally, many thanks to David Acton who CDed the AMA events and manned the score table during the whole contest.

Aram Schlosberg FAI CD

Skyscraper Annual Report (Oct 18-19, 2003)

Here are the results of the Sky-Scraper Annual, on Barron Field in Wawayanda, NY, Oct 18-19, 2003, in FAI, NFFS, and AMA events. First some highlights. We had 70 participants altogether (including also FAC and SAM). The weather was good most of the weekend. Sunday morning we
flew in a bouyant rain, from the center of the sod as the drift was light and variable in its direction.

Especially noteworthy was the Junior flying in FAI. Junior fliers won the first place awards in 3 of the 6 FAI events, all maxing out with stellar levels of performance. Moreover, among those finishing in the top 5 in these events, Juniors accounted for 10 out of 20. Clearly, FAI free-flight is critical to Junior flying in the North East, as it is for many their next step past HLG, Catapult, P-30, and Mulvihill.

Congratulations to Junior U.S. Team member Sara Radziunas, who had her first Max Out to win F1B, just ahead of Ron Felix. Junior Nate Coste flew well for third in F1B.

Congratulations also to Junior Amanda Barr who continued her string of Max-Outs (beginning in August). This weekend in Wawayanda she maxed-out to win both F1J/P and ABC Gas.

In F1A Peter Barron maxed out and got the 5 minute max to win the flyoff against Aram Schlosberg (2nd). Junior Ben Thomson also maxed out for 3rd. Juniors Jonah Coste and Josh Revkin flew well for 4rd and 5th place finishes. Peter's performance here, coupled with his fine showings at several Muncie contests (2 firsts and 2 seconds) this summer, puts him in a position where he has a shot at a high Americas Cup finish for F1A in
2003. He will need to do well at one more non-Muncie event.

We had 16 contestants in F1A, clearly the most active event on the field.

Joe Wagner, Tom Ioeger, and Rich Ivers flew well to win F1C, F1G, and F1H, respectively.

The AMA and Nostalgia events had some good performances, especially by Al Volmer, Ed and Larry Pelatowski, Don Rousseau, Brad Bane,
Clarke Darling, Krine Laffler, Mike Cook, and Amanda Barr.

The contest management was ably overseen by ever-vigilant Dave Acton, who also found time to take second in Dawn Unlimited.

Thanks to all of you who came and enjoyed the flying.

Skyscraper Challenge Report (May 25-26, 2003) by Aram Schlosberg

The weather Cassandras forecasting high winds and rain scared off some flyers. But mother nature was much kinder to those who made it (41), with a overcast Saturday with some drizzle and light fog and moderate wind. Sunday was just spectacular, overcast, starting off with very light morning winds followed by a long mid-day dead calm period. Due to the a week's precipitation the field was wet, drenching may socks and sneakers. The surrounding corn field had just been planted, extending the field to the far trees on the surrounding higher land.

The contest highlight was the F1B flyoff. In the first flyoff, John Clapp flew early, but Jim Bradley, who had a motor blow, and Bob Biedron got better air launching later. The 7 minute flyoff (a first ever in Wawayanda) was flown from the south east end of the field. Bob got off to a clean max while Jim had another motor blow and his second model's VIT line did not disconnect, causing a dive that was clocked at 13 seconds. Taylor Gunder was the highest scoring junior, dropping 20 seconds.

Andrei Kirilinko, the only F1C flier, clocked a perfect score.

There was drama in the last round for F1A and F1G. In F1A, Austin Gunder, with a perfect score got into a time pressure on the last round/second attempt and sub-maxed for a third place. Aram's electronic model DTed early in the fifth round placing him fourth after Omer, Tzvetan and Austin. Ben Thompson was the highest scoring junior, placing 5th. Andrew Barron had a myriad of technical problems during the day.

In F1G, Larry Pelatowski maxed-out while John Clapp DTed early spoiling an otherwise perfect score and putting him in a tie for third, resolved by a flyoff against Bob Hatschek.

Dave Acton CDed the AMA events and was responsible for the financial side as well as for the first place awards. The three top flyers and the leading junior in each event were awarded a certificate, portraying an Indian flying a glider, drawn by the Canadian artist Mark Komza. Dick Ivers hit the jackpot, walking away with two firsts and a second.

The Skyscraper Annual 2002

The Skyscraper Annual at Barron Field, Wawayanda, New York, October 19-20, 2002 was again well attended, with participants in FAI, AMA, Nostalgia, FAC, and Old timer. Here I give the results for FAI, AMA, and Nostalgia events. Both Saturday and Sunday mornings were delightfully calm and produced some good performances. Saturday at 10:30am a storm came through with extreme winds the rest of that day, such that the completion of Saturday's events was moved to Sunday the 20th. Picking thermals Sunday afternoon proved to be a special challenge as they would come through very rapidly with a very brief window of opportunity to catch the thermals that would take the planes past the tree-line to the second sod farm on the other side.

In F1A and F1B the best at handling the conditions were Tzvetan Tzvetkov and Charlie Jones, respectively, with Bob Sifleet and (FAI Junior) Sarah Radziunas right behind. Dick Wood was on course for another fine performance, though his efforts were cut short by having flights that put both his top models far off field onto distant black dirt farm fields (made soft by recent rains). The good news for him is that he found and retrieved both. Aram Schlosberg had an out-of-sight last flight (failed DT), which he was fortunate to retrieve many miles down wind thanks a search by car for the radio-location signal.

Tom Ioerger and Bob Sifleet won the F1G and F1H mini-events with fine performances to strengthen their America Cup positions. Tom Jones came from Ohio (with his brother Charlie) and swept the Hand Launch and Catapult events, against some fine New England competition, strengthening his position in the National Cup.

In the gas events, Tom Kerr, Bob Geyer, Gene Pailet and Mike Cook flew especially well.

In AMA rubber events, Dick Ivers showed his P-30 prowess, while in Mulvihill, yours truly picked up his first rubber win.

Some new families came from Connecticut, as part of Art Ellis' program at the Eli Whitney Museum, to their first big contest in support of the efforts by new juniors Richard Swartwout, Oliver Cai, Kyle Lindell, and Marian Whitney, while continuing program members Josh Revkin, Nathan Coste, Ben Thompson, Sarah Radziunas, as well as the Barron and Rousseau kids, continued to hone their skills.

Thermals!

Skyscraper International Challenge FAI free flight results

Here are the FAI free flight results from the Skyscraper International Challenge, May 25-26, 2002, in Wawayanda, NY. The weather was superb, with light variable winds. Ron Felix ran the flight line and did a great job. The fliers accomodated a rugged schedule in the big FAI events, with round one held at 6 pm Saturday and round two (with the Super-max) at 6:30am early Sunday. This was one of the best competitions in the East I can recall in many years. The competition was especially close in F1B with Lee Wang, David Ellis, and John Clapp each having a shot at the win in the last round. Junior team members Taylor Gunder and Ryan Jones also flew well. Junior Sarah Radziunas flew in her first F1B competition and she shows much potential, closing strong with a max while several others faltered that round. In F1A Junior Ben Thomson flew a fully-equipped carbon-winged model that he constructed entirely himself. Junior Josh Revkin, who won the Skyscraper meet last fall with his Checkmate, suffered the disappointment of the flyaway of his new model on a practice flight. In F1C Bob Gutai's winning 5 minute flyoff flight (Sunday afternoon) journeyed around various parts of the field before landing only about 50 meters from where he launched. In the Mini events, Tom Ioeger, Chuck Markos, and Austin Gunder (Junior Team member) maxed out Saturday to win F1G, F1H, and F1J, respectively. There were a total of 31 competitors (46 entries) in the FAI events, plus some, such as Art Ellis, who, by their own choice, were so busy helping many others they didn't have a chance to fly. --Andrew Barron
