Archie wins the Gliding Event
A good turnout of twelve members attended the last flying event of the year yesterday to compete for the prestigious Dave Perrett gliding trophy. The blustery conditions made for an exciting competition with the leader with longest flight constantly changing as the rounds progressed. In fact, so close were the flight times it was possible for anyone of the contestants to win if they had a good final flight. In the end it was Archie who soared into the lead and won the magnificent trophy with David P and Dave B tied in 2nd place with same flight times. In a fly off between these two, Dave B had the better flight and therefore took 2nd place.A big thank you goes to Phil L who very generously loaned his plane so four others could fly in the event and to John C for supplying the obligatory hot sausage rolls and to Ted for organising this and all the other events held this year. Well done to Archie and thank you to everyone who attended for making the day very enjoyable.
