Winning time was 2:55, Chinook. Second place was very close at 2:51.

Seems a little weird considering they got 3:30 at MIT?

I'm also assuming that Troy got all 3 bonuses (Chinook, Color, and Time)

They did not get 3:30 at MIT - the top time at MIT was 3:03 by Ward Melville High School A.

I see reference to Stephens Lobby for the GGSO flying site but can't see where they posted the ceiling height. Also, was the ceiling clean and valuable?

Thanks,
Brian T.

Sorry; typo; s.b. "flyable" not "valuable"

Ceiling height was approximately 15 ft, the ceiling was nothing special but it was mostly clear of obstructions.

Many teams at GGSO did not get the 3 minute bonus, and this includes many of the top teams.
