You are right, Joe. The MMG's made a great positive addition to the contest. Hot Food was supplied on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Colleen and the MMG's deserve a large amount of thanks!

Actually, a good contest requires a whole lot of help from several people. The Tabulators, Runners, Pull testers, Pit Bosses, Judges, General Gofers,  Trash Service, Ice Buying ,  CD's, etc. etc.

We were lucky at the Gluedobbers. About 15 years ago, John Ashford came over from OKC, put on a Judging clinic, and gave  us a
cadre of trained Judges.

This was our 30th Stunt contest after the second coming of the Controline Gluedobbers..

Interestingly enough, Jim Lee has attended 29 of those.

De
And I have thoroughly enjoyed every one!!!  The Glue Dobber's put on an excellent contest.   The circles are in wonderful condition.  Bob Reeves grass berms at the edges delineate them without being obtrusive.  And, as De pointed out, there is a very large group of people that do such a great job with all the details.   and then, there is lunch....!!!!!   
Believe me, when that dinner bell rings, the place comes to a halt!!   
And, you should have seen all the kids flying in Beginner!   won't be long till they are challenging some of their elders....     And we won't talk about how 'elder' we are becoming....
So, Glue Dobbers, Thanks for as wonderful weekend.   
PS:  We got to see the Blue Whale again......    :-)
Thanks
Jim

A photo of the scoreboard for Old Time, Profile, and Classic was posted earlier.  I do not think Sunday's scoreboard was posted yet, I have not seen it.

When Sunday's scores are posted, I think you will agree that in Expert, it does not get any closer.  From my weak memory, I think the first three places were separated by 1.5 points.  If someone has a pic of Sunday's scoreboard, please post it.

Re: Tulsa Gluedobbers Stunt Contest - The MMG's
« Reply #62 on: October 03, 2018, 07:31:08 AM »
The MMG's are a group of wives who accompany their husbands on the district 8 contest circuit. They help out with various  jobs at the contests . In Tulsa, they go shopping , help with the food and tabulating, and donate money to indigenous native tribes. They also clean our clubhouse. They should get combat pay for that!

The MMG's who helped Colleen Gilbert out with the food are; Edie Oliver, Janis Stokey, Stella Hill, Nan beaver, Merilee McMillan, and Sheila Cranfill.

Edit: I left out Rhonda Tipton, Patty Honea, and Linda Gleason.

Tabulator Pat Reeves was assisted by Maggie Blanchard.

Really wish I could have watched this one.  In all of my "too many" years flying stunt I don't think I have ever seen a contest where last place was a 587!

Great Job!

  That was interesting, but doesn't mean too much (and that sort of thing has to be accommodated in any contest organization scheme (high judge/low judge problem)).

The order is what matters, and young Matt seems to be learning very quickly...

So true.  They are all accomplished fliers.  I have flown contests where the conditions were perfect and everybody flew way above their normal.  Those days are the most fun you can have with your clothes on.

It was a great weekend for a contest! The weather for the most part was fantastic, and the camaraderie was great as always! The scores were really high but the order is what matters, and as long as itís consistent as well. Thanks to the Gluedobbers and everyone that put on the contest. I flew with them for a year and a half while I was in OKC and it felt like I was back at home this weekend.

I only took a couple videos this weekend of full flights. Here is Richard Oliverís first official flight. The other couple flights are on my video camera which I will try and upload to YouTube tomorrow. The Facebook post is public so it shouldnít have any problems to be seen here on Stunthanger:

Here is my first round flight from the Tulsa contest. I believe I got a pinhole leak somewhere because this is the first time Iíve had the motor go lean halfway through and then back down to its standard run after the overheads.

Gary Mondry, not wondering that at all brother.  If I remember correctly that "lousy profile" has beat me in the past. :)  It was great to see you again.  An excellent contest, as it always is. I might have been saying "you put your right foot in, you put your right foot out. What if the Hokey Pokey really is what its all about?"  Actually there is no telling, what I was doing.  LL~ LL~ LL~
