Only four flights of 10 minutes were made, three by Gene Trevino and one by Alex Holguin.  One flight of 9:57 by John Barton.  

We designated the second round of Open as a Prize Round.  Prizes were awarded for Longest Flight Time (John Barton), Best Landing (Walter Higgins) and Shortest Flight (Mike Starling).  Event awards were glider pins, a gift for the anchor man, and a kit of an RPV to Gene Trevino.
