Hi Eddie,

You should watch!

Sportsmanship at the Reedy was certainly not limited to one act; so, watching the runs is the way to take in the multiple acts that occurred. Over the past two days alone , I would say that I saw no less than a dozen acts in the Invite ranks alone. And both Paul LeMeiux and Marc Rheinard initially set the tone by being very patient and cautious with those trying to curtail their passing efforts.

Good stuff!

Bill

Unfortunately, Paul's second day was average. Big surprise to me.

The pre-race tribute to Mike Reedy also helped set the tone. And what rc race has ever had a reed and string orchestra to follow that up with? It was a true Reedy Race of the past...

Round 5 race 4 is the main one I had in mind though there were plenty as Still Bill mentioned.

Uploads will be continuing for awhile.

Great race. Good job on the rain delay squeezing an extra round into the second day and still finishing by 5. Two thumbs up to the Norcal Crew for running a great race especially Kevin J and crew for staying up late drying the track past 1 am in the morning. Thats what I call dedication.
