Welsh Open F3F 2020

Doesn't look too promising! 6 people does not a race make.

Fortunately that rule is for England and doesn't come into force until Monday. So the Welsh Open is still ON unless anything changes in Wales over the next 48 hrs.

After Monday, groups of max of 6 can meet and can be in a space that is socially distanced from other groups of up to 6. 
Pubs  etc are tasked with ensuring the groups are kept separate. 
 

We could meet those restrictions quite easily. 
However organising an event for more than 6 may be a risky prospect, unless we sell alcohol 😁 as well.

That's social groups.  F3F events are organised under the guidance for businesses and organised sporting events, which has not changed and lets hope it stays that way for the winter.

I’m confused now. Mark T recently cancelled the Horcum event apparently because the rules make an exception for ‘team sports’, but not non-team ones, which he judges F3F to be. I haven’t read the latest rules, but you can’t both be right.

not looked into it further yet but there has been more clarification since mark T cancelled the HOH comp, which suggests as witch1 says that we would be legal as a organised sporting event, which has controls in to minimise covid risk

That seems reasonable to me, and the rules are in my view there to give a guide to what is reasonable. 
of course some over zealous pc may not be reasonable.

People seem to interpret the guidance differently, but the guidance under which the English and Welsh Opens were organised remains valid on .gov.uk. at the moment.

I’ve just been chatting to the tea van man on Rhigos Mountain. He reckons there will be roadblocks tomorrow, but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of evidence for this idea on the internet.

To tell the truth 6 rounds were flown by 25 pilots. I only managed 3.

I need some spare parts.

I have never before seen, or even heard of, wings falling off planes without some contact with the ground first, but that’s what happened. Good start to the second round, but halfway down the first lap it was apparent that all was not well. A bit later I could see daylight between the fuselage and the wing roots. By the time I got to the landing site, the thing was uncontrollable and in the wrong place. So, it has a bent nose, a creased tailplane half, and a broken clevis extender. Also, as the incidence pins became less and less engaged in their sockets, the sockets were ground away, so they will need repairing.

I haven’t got time at the moment to repair it, so I’m going to order a new fuselage and tailplane half, and repair the fus as a spare at my leisure.
 

The next flight I bust my other PB2 in almost exactly the same places. Don’t ask how. I don’t really know the full answer.
