At the Flying Aces Outdoor Champs in Muncie two weeks ago, we awarded TWO Blue Max medals to well-deserving FACers.
The first mentioned was Chuck Hickson, from the Cloudbusters. Chuck is a dedicated flyer and through his persistence, he has gained his 16 kanones by beating some of the biggest names on the list – it has taken him awhile, but he has done it!
The second recognized was Duke Horn from Texas. Duke has been a long-standing member and has an active online presence. We are glad to have Duke travel up to Muncie each fall.
The awards ceremony was not without its hiccups. Evidently, I forgot to bring medals AND I forgot to check the list prior to leaving. During the summer, I knew that we would award Duke in September, but it slipped my mind and he had to remind me. Such shame upon me. Chuck was awarded my medal and Duke was mailed a medal just after I got home.
For those of you interested, here is how I can call up individual performances (or maybe you are interested in what they fly to win):
