BADMAC Fun-day and BBQ

This took place as advertised on Sunday 3rd August 2014.

The weather was warm and sunny but the wind was southerly and a little strong! There was an excellent turn out with quite a few friends and family. The BBQ was again excellent with Chef Glynn ably assisted by Syd. Some of the contests were unable to take place but some intrepid (foolish?) pilots took part.

Because of the tricky wind conditions some contests were unable to take place but here are the results of the ones that did.

First Bixler Duration Contest:

1st Tim Brooks
2nd Pete Quibell
3rd Brian Jenkins

Down in a Minute:

1st Brian Jenkins in an incredible time of 59.86 seconds.
2nd Tim Brooks
3rd Danny Monkman

Spot Landing:

1st Trevor Marritt
2nd Tim Brooks
3rd Jack Emo

Second Bixler Duration Contest:

1st Pete Quibell
2nd Brian Jenkins

No third place awarded, as the remaining competitors in this competition where eliminated due to them having to turn on their motors outside the designated time control, in order to save their models from landing in adjacent fields because of the high wind speed.

In the presentation following the final event, all competitors gaining a first place, were awarded a high value prize---or not!!!
