As it stands now I've got the 7th Jan & 4th Feb and both of the reserve dates free.

I'd like to come along and join in again, but I'll be very careful about whether I fly or not, I don't want a repeat of last time at Levisham :(

Hi Jon,

I am on holiday currently, but I'm hoping to support the first comp weather permitting next weekend.

Cheers, Steve

Me too - providing that work doesn't punish me too hard, and I have a few kilojoules of energy left, I'd like to join the northern party!!

Cheers,

Greg

Well there aint going to be a shortage of wind tomorrow, but the forecast is for showers throughout the day.

Cold Northerly winds will see us heading for the slopes overlooking Fylingdales.

Should be fun if the rain is not as bad as they are currently predicting

Therefore with a  degree of trepidation, tomorrows comp is ON

 

Meet at the main carpark for 9 to 9:30

 

Cheers

Jon

Well that wasn't too bad was it? The predicted showers did materialise, and despite being very heavy, were generally short lived. Never-the-less every round had at least one stoppage for rain, and the air between could be a bit tricky as well.

However the 9 pilots did managed 5 rounds before the wind swung too far west to continue, and with the prospect of more heavy rain to follow, a hasty retreat to the carpark was made before the next down pour.

Some great flying was had, with Greg coming out on top, followed by Mark R, with Steve in third. FTD went to Greg with a 37.51 in R1

Final positions were

1    Greg Dakin    3954.72    1000
2    Mark Redsell    3746.28    947
3    Steve Hayley    3656.82    925
4    Peter Gunning    3607.59    912
5    Rich Baygo    3600.76    910
6    Mark Treble    3106.69    786
7    Dave Watson    2898.77    733
8    Jon Edison    2832.13    716
9    Bob Dickenson    2546.52    644

Full spreadsheet to follow

Thanks to everyone for their support, and look forward to next time

 

Regards

Jon

Well done Jon for running today's Comp in very trying conditions. You made the right call and despite the rain, an enjoyable day especially to see Greg flying for the first time and a well deserved win.

Yep, good to get the winter season underway even it was a bit ropey. Some good meerkat impersonations as we all dived for cover when the showers came in. Greg on top form and generally very close so looking good for the coming comps. 🖒
