Congratulations to all competitors who made the trip to Clear Lake, Iowa, for the 2022 Western Region Championship. PRO Pat Heppert predicted that the wind would cooperate on Sunday, and he was right. We were able to bang off four more races on Sunday morning. Thanks to Pat and Ron Rosten for helping with RC duties.
