|Flight traces from Day 1|
Well the weather turned our rather good for a short task, and all those who patiently waited, were rewarded with some really nice Devon soaring. Alan Price made it up to Dunkery Beacon on Exmoor (which is a very rare occurrence from North Hill).
The Final Party was enjoyed by all with the usual speeches and gifts, prizes were awarded as follows:
1st Trevor Stuart - Enterprise Challenge Trophy
2nd Justin Wills - Pop's Pot
3rd Mike Armstrong - Pop's Pot
John Cadman Trophy - Trevor Stuart - for his flight on Day 6 with racquet of Lasham
Sam Witter Trophy - Bob Bromwich - for his flight on Tuesday which was scrubbed, flew in sight of Lundy Island
Blunt Nails Trophy - Jordan Richards - for best in a low performance glider
Highest placed Junior - Jordan Richards
Best Retrieve story - Andrew & Jill Cluskey for retrieve of Andrew Reid when his engine had failed to start.
Thank you to everyone for a great competition, see you next year at Aston Down.
Well that didn't quite go according to plan. The North Hill clag was reluctant to clear, so the few brave pundits who crept off to the east managed to get to the good air and enjoy themselves. The rest struggled with very short legs locally under 1500-2000ft curtains of cloud.
Justin Wills (1) and Trevor Stuart (621) chose Lasham as their remote racquets, Justin landed at Compton Abbas on the way back from Lasham, Trevor Stuart (621), Bob Bromwich (94), Mike Armstrong (JVA), all motored back from their various "racquets"(aka BGA turnpoints).
Comment from David Masson "I saw 1 and 621 turn and I think they should have carried on a bit further east!"
