By 11:30 we were trying to put the course up but it was proving difficult to site the course because the far hill (the Ice Cream Slope) was very misty. However, by 11:45 it had lifted enough to finish setting up.
Mike Evans has always done well on the Crest in varying types of conditions and put this knowledge to good use and took the first round with a 34.97, followed by Simon Thornton with a 35.64 and Mark Abbotts 36.06.
Round three and the record tumbles again and Joel now lowers it to 32:97. Martin Newnham flying with his arm in a sling after a shoulder operation clocked a 35:16 and Mick Walsh was third with 36:57 which I believe was a new PB for him.
Simon took round five with a 36:54 followed by Stefan with a 37:96 and Joel with a 38:79.
A quick check of the course length to make double sure every thing was fine and dandy. Wind speeds for the day were around 17 m/s probably getting up to 20 m/s at the very highest. Thanks to Dave Rumble for being buzzer supermo, Tony Livingstone for collecting all the money and Martin for helping out in the centre. Also a big thanks to everyone who lugged the course over to the far side of the Crest and especial Stefan who got landed with the timing gear both ways, although after flying a 30:01 it must of felt a lot lighter on the way back!
All the best
