This year the Harvest Classic lucked out with bad weather on both weekends. A was flown on Sunday October 15 under strong northern wind while the other events were flown on Saturday October 21 under westerly windy conditions with a soaking wet field.

On Sunday, October 21st we held a memorial service for John Clapp.  Cathy Clapp eulogized her father. Others were Sally Clapp, Vic Nippert, Don Rousseau, Bill Buss, Drake Hooke, Maria Noldy, Peter Barron, Yuda Avla and me.
John Clapp was an avid freeflighters, managed FAI model supply and loved working with Science Olympiad juniors. In 2016 John was inducted into the Hall of Fame.
