ULSTER CONTROL LINE CHAMPIONSHIPS 2010

TOMMY PATTON PARK, BELFAST. 19 TH JUNE.

For once the weather forecast was good for our competition, warm, sunny but with a possibility of a bit of a breeze. Unfortunately it started breezy and got increasingly stronger as the day went on.

Our entry for F2B was the best for sometime, with Kevin Barry travelling from Cork and Chris Gilbert bringing along Adam Taran from Dublin, this was Adams first visit.

Mitchell Shaw judged the F2B competition, with Ralph McCarthy judging the Classic competition.

F2B was the first competition flown, with a fair breeze affecting everyone’€™s flight to some extent. Chris being caught out on his first flight hitting the ground, breaking the prop and causing other slight damage. This finished his involvement in the competition.

John and Maurice both posted good scores, with Kevin and Adam scoring well, Adam showing as a bit of a dark horse with a very competent flight.

The second round started with the wind blowing quite a bit stronger, John’s, Maurice’s and Kevin’s scores holding up well in such conditions.

The Classic competition was between Maurice flying his U2 and Kevin’s flying his Ares. Maurice mastering the conditions with apparent ease.

Our thanks to all for coming along, especially those who travelled so far to make the day worthwhile.

Peter Bradshaw.
