All Quite on the Western Front

Not much action at BERG on Sunday due to the weather and people being away.

Piet was away in East London on business and Mike was away on a fishing trip for the whole of last week, so he stayed at home to spend time with the family.

Of course the Blue Bulls victory on Saturday would have left some with rather thick heads.

As for myself, I went and flew at ETB on Sunday with the F3B team to help then with Distance practice. It was a real early start and I was on the road before sunrise.
The early start meant we were at least able to get in some flying before the wind picked up. By midday we had completed 4 rounds and were just starting some speed practice when the wind got too strong and we had to pack in.

Just a reminder that BERG will be hosting two F3B practice days next month on Sunday the 10th and the following Saturday the 16th. The emphasis will be on Distance, with some Speed as well. So if any of you want to try your hand at F3B this will be a great opportunity. It is not a comp, so is very informal and relaxed. Of course the top pilots will be there and ready and willing to help.
