It was a bit windy but no worse than at the Nationals this year. Apart from a couple of extremely brief showers the day was reasonably sunny and warm. There were thermals about but they did move rather fast, more than one person was caught out and either had to restart their motor or land way down the field if they didn't have one. One of my best flights in 2M with a Radian Pro ended up 100m+ from the spot, even though I had been fairly high getting back proved to be impossible, so a big fat zero for that As you can see from the results below some slots had good lift and others did not - round 2 slot 5 exemplifies this!! pdf file of rounds and slots I was very pleased to make the fly-off in 9th place. Rod Potts made the fly-off but had packed all his gear away not realising he had done enough to make 8th place in the prelims, Rod suggested Jason Burns take his fly-off place.Congratulations to Keith Fisher for winning the fly-off, Keith absolutely stomped on all of us in the second fly-off slot to secure the top spot.
