Recommended Posts

The competition is ON for Saturday.  As the number of entries is low due to people’s commitments on Saturday,  we could not do justice in calling this comp the Kent cup.    So the event will be the re run of the cancelled glider 4 event.  Same format with winch or height limit at 175m.

We have 11 confirmed flyers for the day so a relaxed event, and an early finish should be achieved.

We will be in the usual field on the left just passed the hard standing,  with entry down the lane and not through the farm please.

Aim to start flying fog permitting around 10.

Kent Interclub:  Glider 4 results

Weather was quite overcast with a slight breeze and not much lift to be found.  However most slots were flown out, so a good day for trimming models.

Congratulations to Keith Fisher for (yet) another win and also to Eddy Small who was pipped at the post by just 3.2 points.  Well done.
