Hi Graham.

Yep, the weather forecast ain't looking good for Sunday. However, being positive, can you add me to the list of pilots please.

Thanks

ROAD CLOSURE

Just a heads up that the B2027 Tonbridge Road at Bough Beech is permanently closed until March 2022.

It's easy enough to avoid this inconvience if you plan your route accordingly!

Thanks for getting the results up on the first post and organising a great day.

Adding to my post Towner Trophy here is some more hopefully interesting information.

Towner Trophy 2021

The winner for the 2nd time Keith Fisher was the youngest flyer and the same age as the Trophy.

2nd place Kevin Beale the winner in 2018

3rd place Colin Paddon the winner 1984, 1985, 1987, 1988 and 2013

6th place Brian Austin the oldest entrant flew in the early Towner events

7th place Graham Wicks the winner in 2005

9th place Colin Lucas the winner in 2001, 2006, and 2007

11th place Ian Nicholls the winner in 2019

15th place Phil Ramsey the winner in 1992 and 1998

8 out of the 26 past winners took part

Eric Friend last flew in a thermal competition 38 years ago and it was actually in the Towner Trophy held at Golden Cross.

Errors and corrections always welcomed.

An addition to your post, Ian

Eric Friend last flew in a thermal competition 38 years ago . . . . and it was actually in the Towner Trophy held at Golden Cross.

My last place wasn't helped by the fact that I had only had 10 minutes flying time on the slope with the venerable 'Xplorer', and that it was powered by a rather old 3s battery. More later.

Cheers, Eric
