N..v..S Slope Challenge 2011 - the time has arrived.
After much baiting, biting and general harresment by the lads
the Durban guys have come to the party and put together a North versus South event.
Sharks versus Stormers, if you will.
Under the tender care of Russell Conradt the event is being crafted and
for the 3 of us who have opted to leap on a plane on Friday,
carrying a bevy of planes, the event promises to be great.
Designed over 3 days from the 16 to 18th September so as to allow
for weather permutations of the Durban area, we are looking at
an Aerobatics routine, speed trials and possibly combat as a last option.
There has been a flurry of activity between Mark and Dave to get their newly
acquired MiniVecs up and running and the first reports are of elation
at the capabilities of this new generation craft.
This is going to develope into one of those lekker needle matches
over a floating trophy, that will see this become a much anticipated
and visited annual event on the slope calendar if the Durb’s guys
and us TOSSers have anything to do with it!
So out with the liver tablets, take plenty and try to get some good rest
for what promises to be a jol and a half over the three days!
Below are some pics from Dave’s blog…
