Shortest Day Control Line Slow Combat
Horotiu, 29th June 2013.

A cold and frosty start to the morning but that made it a perfect day for Slow Combat flying at the Horotiu sports field.
15 keen fliers showed up and the standard in general was excellent.
After a pilots briefing at 10am the contest started at 10:20am and the first two round comprising of 15 bouts were completed by 12:30pm.
A half hour break for lunch and to allow the CD to draw the next round and flying recommenced ay 1:05pm and another 12 bouts later it was all over by 3:30pm.
There was to be no easy wins amongst the group.
Bryce Gibson and James Palmer both showing their extensive experience and that practice pays off.
They both made it to the final with both lives intact and decided to have one bout, winner takes all to decide the result, won by Bryce.

Thanks to Brian Howser for organising the field,
Dave Ackery for being Contest Director,
Andrew Robinson for being the Centre Marshal
Dave Wright for being one permanent cut judge timekeeper and also the numerous other fliers who filled in the other cut judge timekeeper position.
