The Junior Team Trials are this weekend at Lakehurst. Five juniors are trying out, so we will have a competitive trial! Three from New Mexico, from the Albuquerque Area Home Schoolers Science Olympiad team, one from Pennsylvania, also an SO competitor, and one from California, who has represented the US on a prior team. The NM team handily won SO nationals this year, and the PA young man came in a strong second place.

I'll try to update this forum each night with scores and progress.

I coach the NM team, so I may be biased! Our greatest challenge will be mastering steering in the large facility.

Josiah Rose         17:43   00:00   13:57      31:40

Andrew Welter      15:05   11:09   12:42      27:47

Chris Luo            00:00   11:52   09:47      21:39

Monet fought through some tough plane issues today, but got a flight in at end of day. Anjulie absolutely killing it with strong steady climbs, set new youth senior records twice.

Weather supposed to continue good.

What a finish. Monet finally got things working on the last flight, and posted a 20 minute one-touch flight, pulling into third place (one touch at Lakehurst! That was fun). Andrew launched in the last 5 minutes of the last round, needing an 18:56. With guidance from Kang, he pulled off a 19:31, taking third place back.

What a great event in a great venue. Thanks to John Kagan for putting on this pressure packed event.

I am amazed that these kids were able to absorb and utilize so much esoteric information in such a short period of time. I would venture a guess that not more than 100 people on planet earth could have beaten them. The coaches did an incredible job of preparing them and all 5 deserved a trip to Romania.

On the plus side, Monet will still be young enough to try out for 2022, and I have more coming up. Anjulie misses 2022 by one month, so I am glad she and Josiah made the team. Monet is extremely competitive, probably had the best plane there, but had a run of rough luck. She will be in the gym a lot before next trials, and all three should be at nationals in may. These kids love to fly!

Kang told me I should fly F1D. I retired, thought about it, but having too much fun mentoring. Getting to the point that we may need to stay an indoor club in Albuquerque!

In an interesting twist, the FAI has instituted new rules for World Championships, which apply to the 2020 event. In order to encourage female participation, they now define a team as 3 members, or 4 members if at least one member is a female!

Since we have two Junior females, Monet gets to participate as a full team member!

The score for the team will be the sum of the scores from the highest three individuals on the team. If the team medals, all four receive a medal and stand on the podium. In addition, if at least 3 women participate, there is a podium for women as well!

Exciting times
