Windy City best speeds:

Dodge 101.34
Hughes 98.08

No impact on the standings.

Rad is still #1
Hughes is still on the average.

Scores from Middlesex NJ.

Both CT Schaefer (122.241) and Jim Vigani (117) topped the record.  Bill Hughes is still (even closer) to the average.

We received a long distance entry via Facebook.

Welcome Andrew Nugent of Melbourne Australia, our 16th entry.

I have the Whitney photos, but I will need to shrink one to post it here.

I will post the top three (at least) on Facebook, too.

Via Facebook I have some interest from Sergo Tomelleri, former F2D, now A, flyer from Italy.  Someone who lives near Rossi is always a threat.

Hey Paul :o!!  I thought you said "I will continue the Perky Postal again this Year of Our Lord 2017.  As before, the contest will continue until November 15, .... "  I would ask you to hold to that because I've been trying to get a good run but I keep running into problems.  The engine and my homemade fuel tank have been giving me a fit!!  I was hoping to get in the air this evening and again tomorrow evening the 15th, okay  ???

 :(  Oh well!  Paul, please forgive my earlier post .... for my Perky 03 .... tomorrow will not come  :'( !   My buddy and I did the best we could in five attempts but we couldn't get a flight to better last Saturday's time so I'll have to report that  :'( :'(.  I wish to report on 10 Nov. 2018, my Perky 03 flew:

13   Jim Carter    69.11    Havin' fun     Titusville   FL   Uctam     111.22     117.90     (26.44)

I copied the info from the Excel spreadsheet that I had downloaded and I'm not sure what columns I and J mean.
 
(p.s.: I just know Bob is probably laughing at that  :-\ but there's always next year .... I hope!!)

It's called the Uctam .15.  I bought it, used, from a fellow in the Ukraine.
