appearance points perhaps also a deciding factor. I counted some eighteen different makes


of glow engines that were used this year, with OS still well at the top, followed by the SuperTigre, the Fox, Brodak, and then var- ious makes of electric motors. Compared with last year, electric is slowly gaining ad- herents and placing well. A number of Be-


ginners used electric, and its near-guaran- tee of constant, reproducible power output does allow them to concentrate on the flying aspects. All control-line flyers owe a huge debt to


John Brodak, the CDs (Tom Hampshire and Allen Brickhaus), event directors, the judges, the circle assistants, and the many Brodak employees who make this event pos-


sible through their many hours of dedicated work, both before, during, and after the week is over. Thank you! And please rest up so you can do it again during 2012’s Fathers Day weekend. Detailed information on all the partici-


pants, their planes, and the results are available on-line at the Brodak website, www.brodak.com.
