Congratulations to all that participated in the four days of Wood Crafters 05, I hope everyone had as much fun as I have at these events. This was the fourth consecuative Wood Carfters Reunion. I am truly happy to see the enthusiasm building in the scale event and look forward to an even larger group in next years woody scale events. We had windy conditions the first three days, but to make things worse, the forcasts called for windier condtions than we actually had and consequently many people didn't show. Sunday's weather could not have been better and the stalwarts were rewarded with wonderful, no wind, flying condtions with abundant thermals.

We use two retriever winches with 180 lb test line that are user freindly for woodys resulting in no damaged or destroyed planes during four days of launching. A good expample of winch proficiency were the zoom launches we were getting on our 2M Lil'Birds.

Thank you for your continued support of this event .......
