Wright Stuff and Helicopter Challenge Kudos


Mr Sparks wanted to pass this along to our Veteran Olympiad Staff and Newcomers as well.

Dear Tim & Tom,

I want to offer my most sincere thanks to you for coordinating the Helicopter Duration and Wright Stuff events for the 2010 Science Olympiad State Tournament. IU Bloomington has a reputation of being the best host site for the state tournament. That reputation is very well deserved – we have state-of-the-art facilities and the best event supervisors & volunteers in the State! As I continually emphasized to the coaches and students, the event supervisors & volunteers are what make the tournament tick. Without you, Science Olympiad tournaments simply would not exist.

I hope the time, talent and creativity you expended on your event paid off with a fun and rewarding day. I have already received many thank you notes from coaches and students who have commented on the fun, challenging and fair events at the tournament. They have also complimented your high level of organization, which led to a phenomenally small amount of contested rules during the day.

Two Coach’s Comments:

“Thanks so much for all of your hard work and effort. It is very comforting to our students when competitions go as planned and "surprises" are kept to a minimum. Nobody puts on a State Tournament like you do. Thanks again.” Dave Swihart, Peru High School

“Great job! Usually I have kids coming back complaining how competitions were run in 5-6 events and I usually discuss it with them and forget about it. I only had ONE event where kids complained this year. Your awards ceremony is the best of any I have seen, even including nationals unless it was held at IU. The trophies coming out of the stage is priceless. Thanks again.” Richard Bender, Thomas Jefferson Middle School

Provost Karen Hanson and Associate Dean Catherine Pilachowski extend their thanks to you as well. We applaud your commitment to science education and I hope I will have the pleasure of working with you again in the future.

Kudos to you and congratulations on making the 2010 tournament a huge success...we couldn't do it without you!

Warmest regards,

Tina

Carrier Landings

Carrier landings
These are the worlds best pilots.
Watch #1 video first, then #2.
Make sure your sound is on. I have seen a lot of aviation emails but the two videos below are undoubtedly the best. Turn on your sound and go full screen. I guarantee this will definitely hold your attention.
These videos show the difference between Naval Aviation and any other kind. The links below are two outstanding
videos about F-18 carrier operations aboard the USS Nimitz during weather that causes a severely pitching deck, which you can see in the videos. It's more dangerous than most combat missions and the tension in the pilots and crew is very apparent. Watch Part 1 first. Great videos
