Other highlights of the trip include my first rounds of golf where there was money at stake. I actually ended up winning in both matches, thanks to a skin and closest to the pin in the first and by sinking a long birdie putt in the other to win another skin in a scramble. If you are not a golfer, you have no idea what I just said, and that's OK.
Valiant Air has a great collection of restored aircraft. Only a few of them can still fly, but most are in pristine condition. Here we see my Cayman GTS in front of a not so pristine Czech Mig.
The IPMS meet went well. There were about 55 people that entered models, down from previous years. There are some really nice models on display. All my models won awards including a second place for best large diorama for the Full Metal Jacket, and also for my Stay a While and Listen fantasy diorama. My brother's large helicopter and tank diorama got the Cinema Militaire award.
