Free Flight Ramblings - December 2018

On Behalf of Ken Norton

Free Flight Ramblings

Fourteen made it to Woodland Waters on Saturday the 15th for the dinner at which Ian Hibbert was presented with the Peter Spalding Memorial Shield.  Peter’s daughter Louise was scheduled to make the award but her son Alex had asked to be allowed to do so and mother conceded to his wishes.  She did, however, present Free Flight Supplies gift vouchers to Walter Hodkinson and David Taylor, donated by Ken Norton, as a thank you for their assistance throughout the flying season.  David Leeding was also awarded one, but as he could not attend his was posted on to him.

In the six years of its existence Ian’s name appears on it no less than three times, which says something for his persistence as he would be the first to admit he’s no great contestant.  He is however always ready to take part in all events and usually manages to place in the top four.  For those of you not in the know he was the winner of the Lulu postal event, with our Reg Kinsey placing second.

It was decided at the dinner that these contests must go on, so let’s see another name on it for 2019.  Not sure at the moment on who will run the events or on the dates, as it has been requested that we change from the last Saturday in the month to the first.  Your views to me please.
Finally, may I suggest that the initial contests be for the Mercury Gnome glider, Cloud Tramp rubber design and a precision power event for profile models with 0.5cc or under engines.  
A Happy and winning New Year to one and all.
