Don't cry for me

One of the advantages of being a bright twelve year old kid is that you can take a few weeks off from home-schooling to crew for Dad at a World Championships.

When Alex Franke (VN Crew Chief) isn't out on the grid or running Start Times or delivering Flight Logs, he is making friends.  While the company he keeps isn't always the most respectable sort, you've got to admire his ability to immerse himself in this society.  He has ridden with the gauchos, marched with the guys, and charmed the young ladies.

Last night, when Team VN arrived at the hacienda, they found three notes addressed to Alex from the young ladies. Alex was too much the gentleman to reveal the contents of the letters, but we surmise that they contained a few tearful goodbyes.
