U.S. Nat'ls Day 5 - Task 3 - Canceled

We arrived at Gunter's at around 10:30. Calm at the airport and on the launch. Threw a few wind-techs into the air around 11:30. It soon became apparent that the winds aloft were stronger than forecast. A task was called & pilot meeting briefed, but shortly after the launch window opened, it was closed due rapidly changing wind conditions. A check at the airport again - 15 gusting to 20 kts. . . The meet director & safety cmty. agreed to call the day, based on observed winds and the forecast for an increase later in the day.

Results should be HERE soon. They may be delayed due to some pending protests and rule verifications.
