The morning kicked off with a mess of Nats trophies being awarded for the AMA events held on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The screen-printed, acrylic tabletop trophies are an elegant and unexpected change from recent Nats.
Day one of the Indoor Nats was a reunion, firstly. Free Flight-minded friends and flying buddies gather every summer, this time at the Kibbie Dome in east central Idaho, for the annual convocation. This year, even a sizable contingent from Europe made the trip. No doubt several are eyeing the inaugural F1D and F1N FAI World Cup offered at this outsized Nats.
