It’s been a season of mixed fortunes weather wise particularly spring and early summer but there have been some really fine days and some great flying conditions. All the major events went ahead successfully, though some were curtailed by deteriorating forecasts and the Scottish Nats had to be postponed and events run on later dates.
There were one or two unfortunate date clashes which did affect attendance to events in close proximity. But overall the season was well catered for in all the different classes. Electric launch continues to dominate the scene, with F5J gaining interest through the promotion of the BMFA league and the series run by Peter Mitchell at Bartletts Farm.
Thanks must go to all the CD’s for their continued organisation of events for our pleasure and to the clubs who release their fields. I don’t wish to offend those not mentioned individually but special thanks should go to Brian Austin for the popular Bartletts Farm Series, Alan Morton for Mike Lucas 100s and Peterborough Winter Series, Bernie Jones for co-ordinating the BMFA eSoaring and F5J Leagues (and CDing many individual events), Mike Fantham F3K and Peter Allen driving F3J events, Radioglide and Interglide.
I will be contacting all current trophy holders and arranging the handover of pots in due course.
So the 2015 season is already underway with the Peterborough Winter Series and an Ipswich Multilaunch comp. I look forward to receiving details of future events to include in the calendar.
Thanks again and enjoy the coming season.
