BMFA League 1

Despite a less than promising forecast, the new season started well, with eleven pilots battling it out in nice conditions on Back of the Wrecker. The smallish entry meant lots of rounds flown.

Joel West achieved his second consecutive win thanks to some great flying using his effective reversal style. Mark Redsell was runner up with his Freestyler, and Mark Treble third with his Pitbull.

After the comp, I looked on as Mark Redsell checked out Bruce's 'Great Wall'. Getting an insight into Mark's thought processes while evaluating the model was fascinating - it's certainly inspired me to make my practice sessions more goal oriented.

All in all, F3F delivered another day of fun and challenge, and by the end we could all look forward to a good sleep! My thanks to Mark Treble, Joel and Graeme.
