2006 Welsh Open F3F

The Bwlch put on its usual hard-to-get weather act - it must have known that we had visitors coming from the Czech Republic, Spain and Germany! Nevertheless we managed to get in 7 rounds over two days, not bad considering the poor forecast, in fact there were flashes of the old Blwch magic late on Saturday and Sunday.

A special mention to our main sponsor DS Model for providing a gorgeous Union Jack adorned 60 inch Ocelot for the raffle. Gary Harrison was the lucky recipient. Thanks also to Cubitts Models for their well stocked goodie bags.

Models I'd not seen before included a prototype of the the Ascot flown into sixth place by Mr VV himself Vaclav Vojtisek, the Lynx of Petr Diblik, and the Furio V of Jarda Vojta. Last but not least, the latest Schocker variant, built and flown by Siegfried Schedel.

After the marbles were counted, Kevin Newton was declared the worthy winner. Kevin also achieved fastest time of 34 seconds. Carlos Cantero was a delighted runner-up, with Siegfried Schedel third.

If anyone would like a full res JPEG image, please feel free to email me. Thanks to Kevin, AJ, Mike and Shane for putting it all together, see you all next year! Other reports are here:
