Special thanks to Doug Keller for doing the Scoring....After launching at Mara ...He almost got beer suck 1000 ft over the Freedom Flight Park on day 5 where he could see the cold Big Surf Beer cooler....but he resisted and climbed out to 8500' over Saddle Mountain at 6pm then went back to tag the Camels Hump turnpoint before gliding back to goal for some cold Big Surf Cider!! Then he finished the scoring before dark!! Awesome dude! Thanks to one of our most popular sponsors in this heat wave. Big Surf Beer !!
