Competition Enterprise: Tasks and Results



Day 1

Saturday, 2 July 2016


  1st Justin Wills 396 (320 km)
  2nd David Masson 346
  3rd Mike Armstrong 288

Those of you on the airfield today will note that the photo posted was cunningly angled to make the sky look better than it was! The competitors took being launched into the rain in good spirits. Most of them "stuck to the sky" but there were enough relights to give the crews some practice at ground retrieves. The wind was also challenging but the air gradually dried out until a shower late in the afternoon caused a mass landing.

The task was a "pinball" effort shuttling backwards and forwards across 10km concentric rings from Shobdon.

3 landouts to date and everyone else is back on the airfield with the exception of Justin who we assume is on his way to the Norfolk coast somewhere.

Day 2

Sunday, 3 July 2016


  1st David Masson 713
  2nd Justin Wills 699
  3rd Paul Rice 616

The task was a reducing out and return to the east oscillating with ones to the north-west.

There is a standing bonus for going round Snowdon any time this week. Mike Armstrong succeded in rounding it at modest height and returned with a little engine assistance!

Day 3

Tuesday, 5 July 2016


  1st David Masson 629
  2nd Justin Wills 541
  3rd Mike Armstrong 505

The task was "Drunken Ganglion" out and returns to quadrilateral NSEW turn points. Dave and Justin scored extra points as they reached the sea in the Severn Estuary. Some pilots reported wave to 8,000 feet. Mike Armstrong was unabe to engage negative flap as a small box "foreign object" had wedged in the controls.

Day 4

Wednesday, 6 July 2016


  1st David Masson 457
  2nd Mike Armstrong 452
  3rd Justin Wills 399

The task was a "string of pearls" to BGA turn points east and west of Shobdon. After a sunny start, top cover cloud increase from the west so that the Airfield was overcast by the time that the last few gliders were launched. Zoe Mallam demonstrated the performance of her Ka6 in the weak conditions with a notable flight scoring into into the top half of the results.
