English Open F3F

18-19 August 2007

This two-day F3F event takes place in beautiful surroundings and is now a well established fixture.


Rain on the first day soaked everyone to the bone, forcing a hasty retreat to the warm and friendly surroundings of Cubbitts Models in Trowbridge, and thence to the Hunters Lodge for dinner and raffle. It seems amazing that we did actually manage to get one round in!


Sunday was a lot better, with several rounds flown off the NW slope and the Fram bags only coming out once. However despite a moderate breeze, times only hovered around the forties and fifties.


Kevin Newton won the day, flying his F3B Skorpion. John Phillips was second with his Falcon, and John Bennett was third with his New Sting. Thanks are due to Joe Cubitt and the WSRFC for their hard work. Also to Cubitts for the excellent raffle prizes. For full results, see WSRFC site.
