Hey Gordie,

Thank you a lot for the reporting in the middle of such a busy trip!! I just got curious about this different "style". Is it something like the difference between Curtis Youngblood short maneuvering "3d'ish style" in the early 90's compared to the rest of the pilots doing long, big and fast passes? or something else?

Thanks again!! and Go USA!!

Day 12, The finals
We had 4 rounds of competition scheduled for today. Two of F3C and two of F3N.
The day was overcast and cool. Daniel was up first in F3C and caught a terrible weather period and had a 213.5, far and away his worst. I watched it and everything that would adversely affect a flight happened to him. Fortunately he was able to drop that round and use his preliminary score.
Nick flew a little later with slightly better conditions and had a 245.00. Ennio won the round with a 253.25 and Ito came in with a 252 so Nick's normalized score was really good.
In the round of F3N, we did set maneuvers, Nick had a 4068.00 which was good. Jamie performed well with a 4156.5. Eric Weber won the round with a blistering 4304 and Kenny Ko was second with a 4299.5. Any score over 4000 was really good.
In the second round of F3C, Nick had a 244.25 and Daniel had a 241.75. Ennio won the round with a very nice 260.75 and Frenchman Pierre Gutierrez sneaked in ahead of ITO with a 259.75 to Ito's 259.5. That means Ennio won the preliminaries and two rounds of the finals, so no matter what happens in the last round, he in the World Champion. As it stand right now, the French Team looks like they have a good shot at the Team Championship along with the Swiss. Third looks like a shootout between the Japanese and Team USA. Naturally, I'm rooting for us.
In the second round of F3N, Freestyle, Kenny Ko blasted a 502 and won the round. Eric Weber was second with a 482. Nick had a very nice 480 and Jamie a 465.
As of right now:
F3C
1. Ennio Graber, World Champ, Switzerland
2. Ito Japan
3. Guttierez France
4. Maxwell USA
5. Mondet France
6. Iso Japan
7. Poyet France
8. Rettenbacher Austria
9. Duzzi Switzerland
10. Wachsmuth Germany
11. Roberts GBR
12. Del Lungo Italy
13. Hiatt USA
14. Kunii Japan
15. Dobashi Japan

F3N
1. KO Taipai
2. Weber Germany
3. Robertson USA
4. Maxwell USA
5. Pescante Italy
6. Osborne GBR
7. Baeumener Germany
8. Hansen Denmark
9. Hawtin GBR
10. Jakobsen Denmark

Two of the F3C finals pilots are JUNIORS, Thomas Rettenbacher of Austria and Axel Mondet of France. Both are great young men and a credit to their parents and each to their country. I wish we had about ten like them competing in the USA.
