2006 BMFA League 6
Whopping conditions on Saturday on the Crest saw a fitting climax to the EPP60 league, with Andy Ellison (Half Pipe) winning the day. There was lots of incident which cost several pilots valuable league points, but the racing was some of the fastest anyone can remember - a great advert for EPP!
The event also decided the EPP60 league, with Paul Wright taking the league trophy, Alex McMeekin runner up and John Bennett third. Well done chaps. A special thanks too to Paul Wright for running the league to such good effect.
Sunday's F3F was delayed while the organisers waited for the wind to shift off the Crest onto the south side of the Wrecker - a wise move as it turned out, in any case some pilots were a bit knackered after the previous day's yomp. After a rather feeble start characterised by wildly varying air, conditions improved for the final couple of rounds. Highlight was undoubtedly Greg's monstrous 39 - which included a cut! Greg was flying his gorgeous white Acacia 2. Mark Southall (Skorpion) was the winner followed by Greg and Mike Evans (Sting).
A lot of physical work is involved in carting gear across the hills, so a big thanks to Andrzej, Kevin et al for an efficiently run weekend.
