BMFA League3 60inch
Report By Clayton Landells

It was an interesting day and we managed to 'complete' 5 rounds. We moved slopes for the Knockout section and didn't have enough lift to warrant forging ahead so the heat points were doubled to give us a final points score out of 100.
Big thanks to Vic for CDing and a massive thanks to everyone for turning up.
Steve Clarke flew outstandingly again and took victory with joint second going to Dave Rumble and Ronni Lampe.

There was some talk about setting a minimum wind strength and being able to call races on or off prior to the round.
In theory, I think it is a good idea as it would save days like yesterday from happening (hopefully).
But....... 9mph on the wrecker, which was forecasted for Whitesheet, would be full ballast. Also, forecasts often change the day prior to an event and the forecast on Wednesday, when people need to know for changing X-tals and planning their trip, is often unreliable.

Anyway, a nice day in the sun watching planks try to survive ten laps was had by all.

A result at last!

I like flying at Whitesheet. It's beautifully situated at the end of a long ridge, and the slopes are easily accessible. And while the main bowl doesn't lend itself to ballistic flying, it makes a relaxing contrast to the adrenalin rush that is South Wales.

After the first two competitions this year were abandoned due to the weather, it's good to report that Whitesheet provided the first result of 2010. The wind wasn't brilliant and there was some thermal variation, which contributed to the slightly party atmosphere. Nevertheless, by the time the rain finally came, a full six rounds had been flown. The winner was John Bennett, Simon Thornton was runner up and John Phillips third.Mick Walsh achieved fastest time of 42 seconds (five seconds faster than than anyone else!).
