Hills and hopefuls
It wasn’t supposed to be at all this weekend with all the wind predictors
showing basically very little for the whole weekend.Saturday blew in a fresh north wester and those that got to Chappies early
got the best of the pick, but by the end of the day it all tailed off,
but we were still able to get airborne with the Aldij’s and have a blast.
Sunday looked doomed by all accounts but turned out to be a real peach of a day.
Starting early Theunis and myself made for signal hill and although
the conditions were light to start with and had a bit of an on and off affair going,
we still had some airtime and Theunis got to really put his new foamie Mustang through its paces. Francoise pitched and put the Sabre through its paces.
However at about 2 pm the breeze kicked in from the west and the hill lit up.
By now most of the AFC guys had left and the Tossers were about the only blokes on the hill.
So out went 5 Aldij’s and one Toko simultaneously for an absolutely brilliant blast of a session.
Then to Bee combat and warbird combat and all in all it was one hell of a nice time
had by all, with very few damages to any of the craft other than Tim’s Minivec
and a few warbirds that took a beating in the ensuing battles.
Some days the weather guys just get it wrong and nature comes to the party instead.
Toss Rules! and so do Aldij’s by the look of things
Order of merit: Ryan(Aldij), Jeff (Aldij), Christo(Mustang), Steve(Toko), Kevin(Aldij), Malcolm(Aldij) – Tim had departed the scene by this stage with the Minivec
