Hi Gary.

Thanks. I think I might have confused things. I have already printed the draw tables for Saturday and Sunday.

However, I'm after the backup hard copy scoring cards completed on the flight line by the timekeeper that Ian refers to in the notes.

Cheers

It always pays to read the notes carefully !!

I see that Ian will be sending us a copy to print.

Sorry I it should read Score Records not Score Cards as that is what I want handed in at the end of the day.

Radioglide F5J Results Day 2 held in good but variable and sometimes strong wind conditions but the sun shone throughout.

Congratulations to the winner Peter Allen, 2nd Steve Haley, and 3rd Garry Matthews.  

Report follows and note I'm afraid my upload for Peter Sherliker's last round results didn't load and can't find or haven't got his Score records.

 Results of combined Day 1 and 2 and Photos to follow.

This report thanks to and by Neil Jones

Great to see everyone again. Some very tricky conditions both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday featured very light winds and many pilots flying off at all angles to various reads. Some with success, others not. Sunday was windier with less pilots racing off to different parts of the sky. On both days I think all pilots suffered at least once or twice when circling in great lift to reasonable altitude only to have it totally evaporate on them and then quickly replaced by strong windy sink. In one particular group on Sunday I saw, about 4 or 5 models were circling and climbing well together in clearly very good air when suddenly one by one they each lost it. It was then a case of moving as quickly as possible whilst maintaining as much altitude as possible and avoiding as much of the sink as possible. After looking comfortable circling in lift at about 200m altitude I think only 2 of them made it back to their landing spots, and only one of them made their time (Steve Haley).

With the prevailing wind direction there was talk of the stiffish sea breeze coming off The Wash having quite a large influence at times. And this makes sense because whilst one slot would be a killer, the next slot might feature an easy thermal ride to huge altitudes. We even saw a couple of slots with big wave lift. So a real mixed bag and a very good test of pilot and plane over 12 rounds and 2 days.

A list of pilots and models flown added below

Thanks to the whole Barcs team for organising an enjoyable weekends flying and thanks again to flightech for the prizes. The weather was fantastic and it was great to catch up with old friends following the last 18 months of misery. 

thanks again,
Steve

Thanks Mike, I was about to remove it as flippant this morning now I'm sober.

Otherwise known as the great escape.

During day 2, I was down and out at 5 minutes in my slot. Lining up to land and ready to sulk, Wixy my timer/spotter started shouting " go for it". "No, no, no......" from the pilot as the model was only 3m above the long grass but the thermal flaps on the Prestige 2pk were deployed and away she went. The subsequent 9mins 57 secs and 45 point landing wasn't the real story !!

Thanks Wixy, I owe you one !!

I'm waiting for a flight file from Steve Haley I witnessed and requested but I feel it might be a little above that.

I saw this one happen. Very good to watch. Definitely part of the big lift/sink cycles happening. Nice piloting Ian.....but no axial rolls to celebrate!

I had a similar scrape on Saturday, I neatly flew around any thermals after launch or it was completely dead air.

Unlike yourself Neil. It brought back memories of the early days in F3j.
