The morning Alumni "Run" was another success this year despite the drizzle. The Alumni were led this year by 800U stalwarts Brannon Kidder and Isaiah Harris along with the rest of the team headed to the NCAA Prelims next week. Coach Groves was there to start them off and watch the first crash of Airship 800U! (That bird is one tough bugger!)

I figured I better take the drone out and get it ready for the Alumni "Run" at the track because I had the time. That will allow me to calibrate the compass and GPS systems. And if the forecasts are correct, I may not be able to fly on Saturday anyway!
And lo and behold, who do I see at the track when I arrive but two of our Alumni Group working out on their own in their quest for post-college glory! Steve Waithe was raking his own pit and Owen Dawson was clicking off a few intervals.
I took a few pics of the surroundings and flew the bird to the limit of 400 feet to look around. All systems are go!

As a paid subscriber to Flo Track (so I could watch the Penn Relays!), it is great to know that their newest hire is Billy Francis Cvecko, our very own Undersecretary of Fun!
I hope they realize what a gift that they gave themselves by hiring him. I really look forward to what is to come. Maybe he will even get them to do a feature on our group someday??? (Hint, hint!)

I finally checked to see if my golf clubs were still in the garage (they are!). And whether or not it was infested by stink bugs (it isn't!). And that it isn't being used as a varmint nest (it isn't!). Sofar, so good.
But it still is behind a bunch of other stuff and I will probably barely remember to get them into my car for the ride to State College for the Reunion and Coach Groves Golf Tourney.
Since I routinely lose more than a half dozen balls on the course, I would rather not use the same balls as real golfers do at about $3 or $4 each. I usually buy "refurbished" golf balls for the event, but this year I went all out and bought 2 dozen NEW ones at Walmart! $10 for 2 dozen is still stinging to my wallet, as I might as well open the bag and dump half of them into a Mountain View CC lake and then just drive around in a golf cart making fun of everyone else instead of actually trying to hit that damn little white ball with a crooked stick!

And did I mention that we could use a few more golfers for the tourney?
With the weather looking dicey for Saturday, all you golfers need to act like a boy scout and BE PREPARED. And if the weather closes the course, the Idiot Officers Group will be convening for the first time ever to find an alternative activity. Post season Womens Lacrosse? A conquering of Mount Nittany by all of us? A decathlon in the Indoor Complex? Who knows what the mind of Clark Haley can come up with?

Brian Leap made good on his top ranking in the Triple Jump with a fine leap of 53' 5.5"!

That's him lacing up for his every other day run of 2 to 3 miles (at least as of 2014). And that's his Olympic singlet he's wearing!
And the Idiot Officer Corps will be convening via digital means tomorrow to finalize all the details of next week's Reunion and Golf Tourney. There's still time to arrange your attendance!
