BMFA League 2 F3F
Report by Jon Edison

The 60inch on the Saturday was cancelled due lack of the 'correct' winds, but the Sunday F3F had a terrific day, which went totally against the weather forecast. Not a drop of rain and winds gusting over 40mph. In fact the gusty conditions caught a few flyers out, resulting in either penalty points for crossing the safety line, or in a few cases, model damage.

This all made for very difficult flying conditions, with the 24 pilots having their work cut out to make the most of their given conditions. So after 9 rounds, congratulations go to a very consistent Joel West in first place, with Mark Redsell in second, pushing Richard Bago into third place in the very last round! Joel also had the fastest time of the day with a 36.25.
