Contest Day 8

Contest Day 9

Contest Day 7

With an approaching cold front the winds are blowing out of the SW and The Hamilton TAF is calling for winds 20 gusting 30 kts with thunderstorms. It appears that all the rain has now gone through and the 16Z METAR from Hamilton reported 15 gusting to 23kts. All the forecast models show a B/S ratio around 1-3 for the day, so the day was again cancelled. We are holding out hope for 3 good days after this front moves through and the temperatures drop from the 30's into the low 20's.
