The hosting club made a great effort in the field preparation and presentation. Dean Erby, Peter Besant, Scott Kay, Henry Hutchinson, Steve and Ben Bird attended the field for some practice in the near perfect conditions.


The stage was set, all 13 pilots arrived and set up early, with the fog lifting a quick pilots briefing was held and the flying was underway with the 4 Advanced pilots flying first, followed by 3 Expert, 5 F3A and 1 Sportsman. All pilots agreed that the weather on Saturday was near perfect with the exception of the cloud
cover (despite the forecast) enabling the completion of four rounds.


Once again started the day with Advanced, Expert, F3A and Sportsman however the weather was not so nice & very threatening. David Tiernan arrived to open the flying only to bring on a shower of rain. The rain stopped and off we went but it wasn’t long before the rain stopped the flying again. The rain slowed and Steven Bird took the opportunity to get a flight in, 4 mins in and the rain started getting heavy again so Henry delivered an umbrella to Steve’s caller Jason (that’s dedication).

Following the not so good start with the weather it cleared out long enough for all pilots to complete 2 rounds and finish off proceedings with some very good positive results and promotion points.

All in all a good weekend was had by all in attendance.
