2016 Flightline Hobby Skymasters Design Contest

April 10th was the Annual Flightline Hobby/Skymasters design contest.  This year the event was held in the cafeteria at the Lake Orion School.  The weather was really bad during the day with snow and freezing rain.  But conditions improved with things changing to rain.  I think this kept the spectator turnout down a little but we still had a nice crew. Everyone seemed to have a good time and there was a lot of sharing of ideas and skills.  Each contestant had a few minutes to explain their model to the crowd.  The categories were:

Fit and finish Prizes 1st-3rd

Creativity and Innovation of design 1st-3rd

Mystery, Storing the “Big 5″ GPS unit 1-3rd

Peoples Choice Steve Winner : Steve Kretschmer 2nd John Hoover

Overall Winners:

1st: Steve Kretschmer

2nd: John Hoover (Honorary passed prize)

2nd: Scott Taylor

3rd: Barney Bauer

I really enjoyed the event.  I know there were more entries that just didn’t quite make the deadline.  We will have a flying event this summer for the people that entered this contest.  Special Thanks to Brian for scoring and Brandon helping with peoples choice and behind the scenes and of course my beautiful wife Tracie with the pizza and food help and preparation.  Thanks everybody!!  John.
