107th R/C Flyers GX Shootout



September 19, 2010 - SAUGUS, MA - It was a bright, sunny day with seasonably warm temperatures for the 107th R/C Flyer's Club GX Shootout. There were 6 pilots in attendance for the contest. We had little or no wind, a great day for GX combat.

The round one leader was Chris Sarnowski posting a 725 point win over Richard Sherman. Joe Fustolo and Neil Simpson were just off that pace posting 620 point round one wins of their own over Dick Sherman and Paul Kubek respectively. In round two Chris and Joe flew to a one cut apiece draw while Neil posted his second one cut win, this one over young Richard Sherman, to take a slim contest lead over Chris.

Going into the final round it was Neil with 1860 points followed by Joe at 1540 points and Chris with 1535 points. It would come down to the final two flights of the day.
