Postals Report and scores - Feb 2007

The weather for both the 4th and 11th of Feb was far form ideal, but a few brave Bergies stuck to our guns and flew both weekends.

First Sunday

Evan became sick with tic-bite-fever the week before and by Saturday we were not sure that he would fly on Sunday. He opted to play it safe and stayed at home.
The wind turned out moderately strong from the West, forcing us to fly from the Eastern boundary of the field. Landings were difficult, coming in over telephone wires and boundary fence.
There was very little lift to be found and even with good launches due to the strong wind, it was more or less a straight glide home and most of us missing the spot all together.

Mike May Ellipse 1 1565
Piet Rheeders Makulu 1514
Peter Joffe Shongololo 943
Gordon Prahm Ava 589

Club score 4022

Second Sunday

Early in the morning we had a strong wind from the South West that must have been the tail end of a cold front passing by. It subside a bit at round about 11.30 and I managed 3 good flights before the wind started to pick up again at about 1.30 and only subsided again at round about 4PM.
Most of us flying this time round mange a fair score except for Evan who had some trim problems after repairs made to his Makulu.

Piet Rheeders Makulu 2073
