A beautiful flying day!
One of the best features of Woodsom Farm is the ability to reschedule flying meets if the forecast is bad.
This was the case for the October 7 scheduled meet. Rain was forecast, so the meet was moved to Columbus Day 10/9. It was sunny, cool and calm in the morning – perfect flying weather. A gentle breeze picked up in the afternoon and all events were flown. A group of flyers had a lot of fun and friendly competition with their towline scale gliders. Our stealthy roving reporter was there –
“Steve E led the pack early with an 85sec flight on his new Megow Primary in the light and calm morning air. Sam B (Waco CG-4), Bill M (Slingsby) and Tom N (Ruby homebuilt) chased him in the breezier afternoon air. Bill’s Slingsby had probably the straightest tows, but he held off going to full line length and the glide while good, needed some tweaking. Tom’s Ruby went up straighter on the tow and managed a 49sec flight, but Sam came on with a 70sec final flight on his Waco to force Steve to bring out his little Primary in the wind. Snoopy climbed that Primary fast and high, but just couldn’t get any lift in the late afternoon air. Steve’s last three mid-20sec flights were not enough to catch Sam who won the event.” Wow!
