I'm pretty sure it was a Pitbul

Well done guys. Maybe this will stop people thinking Whitesheet is always a slow hill !!    

😁😁

  Your quite right John. 

During the course of the comp we had twenty two Sub 40's. This included  six sub 37's & two sub 35's, these two being flown by 'Skip' & Greg. 

A new NW slope hill record was set by Greg of 33.85 .

As you may know the Whitesheet SW slope hill record is a sub 30 by Martin Newnham

Goid stuff from wookiman as well. Completing the day in such difficult conditions and looking at ease during his flights, looks like he will soon be climbing up the boards. 

Thank you for those too kind words. I think a shed load of practice and a slightly less antique aeroplane will both help, the practice is probably most important.

A great day out with some of the top flyers in the discipline. 

I like F3f, so simple in concept, so complex in the detail.

Enjoyed the comp, thanks Stu and all those who ran the centre.

Yes, I flew the Pitbull (1).  Thanks for the various encouraging comments.  After a tough week's work I was simply hoping to survive the day.  The first 2 rounds woke me up.  After that my flying went back to normal, and 6 of the next 8 rounds scored points in the 700's, but somehow luck held with me to give my best placing to date, so happy with that.

I thought the inexperienced F3F pilots did very well for the conditions - Bruce, Jess and Graham.  It is easy for us to forget the amount of concentration that every aspect demands in the first few competitions, from preparing through to landing, so well done.

So the big cub that was flying after the comp ...that seemed to be going quite well really , ended up as a big bag if bits being folded up to fit back in the car . Shame really as it looked majestic from the car park .

Is it legal?

The engine had been removed,  for whatever reason the owner decided to try sloping it 🤔.

Tom is a great pilot, flys power and gliders at the nearby County MFC club, and can 3d around a 100m box for a whole flight when he wants.  But does like to experiment and explore both sides of the envelope....  Always fun watching that little group fly.  White Sheet is sometimes the back-up idea for windy days.
