Ok boys, I've got the following confirmed,  Me, Graeme, Andy, Mark, Ian, Dave, Aleix, Graham H, Bruce.

I said 10 but will run with 9.  We will be on the Back of Wrecker or the nearest side of Micky's so both mean easy access to the cars and landing. 

Therefore I'll see you all there tomorrow @0930 assuming no one is changing their mind ????????

Well that was unexpected.11 pilots took the bait of a possible comp. From 12pm after clag cleared we had 9 great rounds in very consistent conditions. All in all a great day. Well done to the top 3. Top 6 pilots scored 970 or above!! Happy with my 5th place. Last round was interesting. Thumb slipped off elevator stick half way round turn 4!!

Thanks to Joel and Graeme for running the show

Well done to Joel and Graham for delivering a great days racing. A surprising amount of variation in the air but with 9 rounds you had your chances.

Well, what a surprise that was.  Can't believe I'm getting better at reading the forecast so it must have been that the 11 pilots asked for the same thing for Christmas :)

Anyway, as Dave said, after a slight delay due to the haze and lack of wind we finally got going just before 12 and then walloped off 9 rounds in constantly building air. I have to say, the standard of flying was fantastic and the conditions and small field meant it felt quite gladiatorial as different pilots stepped up to put a marker down.

Anyway big thanks to all those who attended, as  everyone did their bit.

I'll post the results ASAP

Excellent day out. Last but not too distant on points. Still flying too far, thanks Dave. Leave the rudder alone, thanks Andy. Roll on the next race.
