Region 2 contest in Mifflin PA

I'm back from Mifflin PA .
We had 5 days of contest flying and two practice days.
 I had big trouble on first contest day as I almost landed out and spent over 45 minutes to recover from low altitude finishing on 8th place with loss of 166 point .
For the next 4 days of racing I worked hard to recover my losses.
I won day three and five and finished contest on second place with loss of 28 points to the winner.
We had long tasks with high cloud bases and very challenging weather with snow and rain showers including one day with very strong and turbulent ridge.
In four weeks I will fly in Canadian Nationals last contest before Worlds.
I hope to accumulate more then 100 hours before World Championships.
