Hi Guys


The reserve comp at Horcum produced a result today despite some very heavy rain around midday. Despite that we did manage to complete 5 rounds ( may have been more if the rain hadn't intervened ) in what were quite light winds, making a change from  the Eastbourne gales a few weeks ago!!


Some steady flying by all, with Martin Newnham coming out on top, Mark Redsell second, and Rich Bago third. FTD went to Greg Dakin with a 45.92. Well done guys


Final position were :-


1      Martin Newnham         3951.21

2      Mark Redsell              3774.03

3      Rich Bago                  3764.05

Good to get a comp in and a good call despite the rain. Well done Martin and Jon!

Round 3 was re-started twice having flown 22 out of 23 pilots first time round. I lost a 41 then a 46 and ended up with a 53 that stood, a very cruel game this at times...

Very close scores from 2 - 8 which is surprising.

Yes, a well run day of fun on the slope - thanks to Jon Edison, and congrats to Martin, Mark and Rich!

I share your pain Pete - I lost 17 seconds between the best and worst of the three reflown rounds - downer :-(

Thanks to everyone for making it happen yesterday, the rain proved difficult to deal with, but overal the call was right.

Big thanks to Jon, Mark and Rich for running the center, Paul Upton our buzzer supreme keeping the bases maned.

Enjoyable day yesterday, but a little frustrating too - i shared the pain with 23s between my counting round and scrapped round. Nice finish with much steadier conditions after the rain though. Congrats to Martin - really tight flying with almost no loss of speed throughout the runs. Commiserations to everyone who also suffered the scrapped rounds - good to get the comp in though. Looking forward to some more summer weather at the next one.
