Hi All

Weather update and general thinking.
At present practically everybody is forecasting rain during Saturday but this is fluctuating as the showers/storms develop. Currently Sunday looks better until late afternoon and obviously looks the better bet.

However, I will wait until mid afternoon today, just in case things change yet again and post a decision then.

Mike

Last entries by this evening please.

Hi All

Posting here to say the comp is moved to SUNDAY as the weather for Saturday looks wet!
Please advise of any no-shows - I think all except Brian are OK for Sunday (apologies!)- and any more entries now until Saturday evening are acceptable
Regards
Mike

Hi Again

Now at 15 entries, having received 2 late ones.

Still have spaces for an hour or 2.......

I would like to try get started close to 10:00 tomorrow morning as rain is forecast later by some sites!

And finally (I hope) please remember to set limiters to 175m and 30 secs for all classes, especially if you have been playing at F5J since last eSoaring events!

Mike

What a day's flying; despite the widely diverse forecasts of rain activity likely to start before lunch, after lunch, or not at all, we got cracking at 10.00 in warm calm conditions and that was how they stayed until we finished at 4:30! (It was the BBC that got it right this time)

WE flew 3 Slots and seven rounds, non-stop. Even with the launch height pre- reduced to 175M, most slots went to the full 10 mins, some flights were the subject of re=launches but everybody had some very good flying during the day.

2 relative newcomers joined our ranks; Paul and Martin both had mixed results but their "issues"which were somewhat different. Martin's S-bus servos had become jittery, making his 2M model a handful to fly and Paul found he had not got rudder and elevator control after his first launch, the resulting bump breaking the boom on his model. The cause of the problem may have been because when he re-installed the height limiter, the rudder and elevator plugs may have been moved in the Rx. Whatever, he flew his reserve to place 3rd in 2M; quite an achievement!
Congrats to Steve on his win in Open and Gordon in 2M

Hi All

Must make an apology and correction to the results announced on the day in the 2M class.

Having had a really good number of entries in 2M, I think I must have been overcome with the numbers (or just plain incompetence!) and awarded the 3rd place in 2M to Paul Lewis, when in fact Dave Hall was in that place.

So, again apologies to both flyers and I will do you a certificate for the next event Dave. Paul please keep the one you have as a reminder of what might be next time!

REgards
Mike
