Another round is done and dusted and Whenuapai has provided nice, flyable weather in nice surroundings. It was a bit windy at times, with turbulence off the trees, but most (ie, slightly more than half) of us got through unscathed. The incidents I noticed were Dave Ackery's very rare clipping of the ground, Dave Wright's not so rare propeller/ground interaction on take-off and Brian McGrigor's slightly too hasty pull-out inverted from the three loops. All will live to fly another day.

In F2B the main battle was between Waikato visitors, Kevin Barnes with his Yatsenko and Loren Nell's smooth, quiet electric craft. In the end, Kevin took the Kingseat Trophy for the second year running by just 18 points out of his 1894 total.

Sportsman saw three entrants, with a welcome return by Bryce Rackley and his racing Flitestreak, complete with pit-stops during each flight! Brian McGrigor dragged out his 1980 Windwagon with ST60 power for his first crack at Sportsman Aerobatics. Brian didn't have the best day with fuel-related starting problems in the first flight, then his crash in the second flight leaving the model in need of some minor repairs. I'm sure he'll be back with his electric Strega next time.

Dave Ackery's crash was not enough to keep him from the top of the podium, and he joins Rob Wallace at the top of the Sportsman table with 1000 points.
