      We had 3 in B and 2 in C.  Sadly none made the fly-offs.  The flew 6 and 8 minute fly-offs in B and about 6 made both. Only  2 survived in C.  Fly offs were held this morning in a breeze and light rain.  Larissa from Russian had a nice flight in C and the Mongolian flyer couldn't get his engine to run - an unfortunate ending. In B,  I timed Kulakovsky for just over 6 but saw another model higher and further away - probably the winning flight.  Sorry scores and names are not to hand. The mini contest today was abandoned after two rounds to restart at 0730 on Monday, the reserve day.  It was blowing hard out there with cold showers coming through.  Phil Ball has a max and 98 secs in F1G.  Gary Madelin maxed the first, don't have a second score for him yet.  The other Brits opted for a trip to Morrow Bay, where the Libertine may see their custom, I think.... I'll post a link to results if I get one.

      Sorry for the lack of posts.  We have been busy. The Chinese timekeeper must have timed the wrong model - an occupational hazard in Free Flight.  Sometimes it works in your favour.  Al's model DT'd for a max. It's been a hectic week with  all sorts of weather.  Thursday was a non-contest day and was blown and washed out after calming start.   Friday was Max Men F1A.  Round two was interrupted by rain then restarted with 45 mins to go.  John Cooper dropped and stopped.  The last round was delayed in very windy but bright conditions.  John Carter had an attempt then a poor launch but hit lift and was one of only four to max out.  Towing was tough in the near-limit wind.  It was then too late to fly-off. Saturday's forecast was good and Wednesday's fly-offs and Friday's fly off were held before the Max Men F1B/C comps started.  Two F1A flyers were in both F1A fly-offs.  John Carter and Jama Danier.  John did nice flights but didn't place.  Jama won both.  All other fly-offs gave conclusions.  A good day's flying followed in the B/C events.
