A couple member of team Phoenix are Bernie Boland and Perry Bartnett. Bernie helps many people at each event by calling their routine for them. Bernie flew his way to first place in Advanced this weekend. Great job Bernie. Bernie also runs an onlinehobby shop called clubhobbies.com. Check it out if you got a minute. Perry flies in sportsman and always seems to be smiling. Great to see you guys this weekend.

Another character that you will find roaming the contests is Dave Grip. Dave is a great guy and has quite a few stories to tell. I did not get a shot of his wife this time around, but she is always there for Dave and usually calls for him.

Alright, last but certainly not least. Here is a shot of the prize table at the end of the day Sunday. Without the great companies that put out the products that we use, we would not be enjoying this hobby nearly as much as we do. Everyone walked away with something this weekend Thank you very much:

Desert Aircraft
Smart-Fly
Airwild
QQ Aircraft Company
Horizon Hobby
Microfsteners

I am sure I have missed someone. Jump in here TQ. I will update the list.

Awesome job Benson. All that was missing was a play by play for everyone's flights. Maybe next time, eh?

This was the best coverage ever of an event. I have a lot to live up to with the next one.

Thanks Princess. This event was a lot of fun. I sure missed Fresno though. I love that event. Maybe next year I will be able to make it.

I was checking to make sure I got all the picks and found a couple more. Another one of the Unlimited pilots this weekend was Frank Kelley. Frank always seems to have a smile on his face and you can tell he loves the hobby. I hope to get to know Frank better in the future, the couple times I have talked to him he has been a really nice guy.

Another guy that it has been a pleasure to meet and get to know is Ray Fulks. Ray is part of team San Diego and always show up with his wife Miss Ellie. I didn't get a shot of Ray this weekend, but I did catch Miss Ellie hanging out with Sue Nelson. They seemed to be having way to much fun. These ladies are great and it is awesome to see them supporting their husbands in the hobby.
