F3K Qualifier # 1 Results

Hi All

Firstly thank you to everyone for attending, and for the help setting up and packing away, you are all awesome!!!

Well we had a very exciting day, conditions were tough right to the bitter end. We had a new task flown today called the "Big Ladder" which looked and sounded easier than it turned out to be. I'm sure that if flown often enough we will come to grips with it.

I am attaching a copy of all the tasks for those that would like to read up on them. If there is anything that does not make sense, please send me a PM and I will be happy to go through it with you. (Sorry this is in the mga Yahoo groups email)

Congratulations to everyone that flew today there was some interesting reshuffles between standings after 5 rounds and then after 10, keep it up, launches are looking good, and I have seen definite improvements all over. I have to make a special comment on Michelle, here launch height is nowhere where the guys are launching to, but she is really doing some awesome flying... Well done Mich!

Quick summary of the results are (The full results can be found on the MGA Yahoo groups email) :

2016 F3J Team Trials - 4th October 2015

During 2015 a total of 19 pilots participated in the qualifying rounds for the 2016 National F3J team.
The top ten pilots were invited to attend a man on man team trial on the 4th October 2015.
4 pilots accepted the invitation and the trial was held at GEMS in Bapsfontein outside Johannesburg.

Local rules applied and 6 rounds of 15minutes with one throwout were flown off 150m winch launches.

Clear conditions prevailed with moderate NW wind gusting 25kmh. Thermal conditions were tough and very few 15 minute maxes were achieved.

Chris Adrian withdraw after round 3 and after six rounds the National Team is:

1st - Alan Smith
2nd - Tshepo Molefe
3rd - Ian Sime

4th - Chris Adrian (1st reserve - non traveling)

Highveld Thermal League # 2 - GEMS - 17th May 2015

The second HTL event was held at the East Rand Polo Club fields on Sunday 17th May. Although the entry numbers were low we did see new faces, which for me is encouraging. The wind blew 5 - 8 knots the whole day and made for some interesting flying conditions.
Commiseration's to Gordon who blew up his Explorer on launch and Shaun who blew up one a Spirit on launch and lost another model in the corn fields.
Congrats to Ian Sime on his first HTL win - I hope this inspires him to new heights.
