NEIL SIMPSON, BRIAN STAS & PAUL KUBEK
ARE TOP THREE
October 11, 2015 – HALIFAX, MA - Five contestants were on hand for this one. The weather was sunny, quite breezy at times with temperatures topping out around seventy degrees.
Round one saw Paul Kubek get off to the best start posting a 620 win followed closely by Brian Stas and Neil Simpson. In round two Paul and Neil again posted good scores each getting airtime wins over Brian Stas and Chris Sarnowski respectively. In round three Neil got a one cut win over Paul while Brian jumped into contention with a two cuts to one win over Chris. Next, Chris got past Joe Fustolo two cuts to one in a match that was exciting and well flown. In the semi-final match Joe got a one cut win over Paul. Each pilot had a cut when the ground came up on Paul. In the final Brian and Neil matched up in a battle that unfortunately ended in a mid-air. When the scores were tabulated Neil was first, Brian second with Paul doing enough to edge out Joe for the last trophy spot.
Thank You to Wingbusters for the use of their great flying field.
