may I express my warmest gratitude for this opportunity to visit the Space Model World Championship and the charming City of Lviv.
I and FAI Finance Director Frits Brink were extremely well taken care of by Mikhail Ryabokon. His enthusiasm and engagement was contagious - everybody around was in the same good mood! A great guy in every sense of the word! I am writing a thank-you note separately to him.
I enjoyed following the competition and I was also given the opportunity to say a few words on Sport TV. In the field I was most impressed by the effort Noosphere took for kids to get involved. The enthusiasm when building, designing and launching the rockets was immense!
I have visited many Championships but I must say this is one of the very best regarding organization, care for teams, spectators, media and kids - and "VIP"s!
Dear Max, having attended this event I got to know Noosphere better by being able to talk to many of your key officials and Frits and I left lovely Lviv with a very positive feeling that Noosphere will be an excellent partner for FAI, sharing the same core values.
In summary, a great Championship, great friendship and great hope for the future!
