The weather situation improved again, and another round of 8way competition was completed before Andy Delk, former Arizona Airspeed member and currently competing for Paraclete XP8, had to leave to make it to the airport in time. The weather delays caused the meet to be slower than expected, and XP8 had to call in their alternate.

However, Craig Girard had a fitting jumpsuit for him, which will probably fly well and support his challenging task.
Eric Heinsheimer, very current FAI Judge and Golden Knights 8way world champion of 1997, who still owns the world record for a single round with 31 points, explained how he ended up back in 8way action and in the Paraclete XP8 lineup. The teams are now getting ready for Round 8, and the 8way competition in the Open Class has become even more interesting.
