Sun Valley Sept. 4

Well it was too windy today to fly, and tomorrow is projected to be even windier, so the organizers and task committee decided to cancel both days and finish the comp.  So we had 2 taskable days, which is unfortunate but hey sometimes comps go that way! 

Spent the day checking out Wagon Days, which is Sun Valley's and Ketchum's annual heritage festival.  Today was a mock shootout on Main Street, complete with cowboys, Indians, saloon girls, sheriff, and bank robbers.  Then it was the grand parade, which is a non-motorized parade of horse-drawn wagon, carriages,  and marching bands.  The grand finale was a mule jerkline with something like 20 mules, towing a train of 6 ore wagons through Main Street.

Final results of the comp can be found here, but in a nutshell, Jack Brown was the overall US Champion, and Eric Reed was the winner of the Sun Valley comp.  I ended up coming 3rd in the women's category, which was enough to get me a Go-Pro camera and some other swag.

I love flying Sun Valley (I think this makes my 4th time here) and hope they have a PWC here in a year or two, cause when it's on, it really on!
