F3B Practice at BERG

F3B Practice #3 at BERG on Sunday morning. There were a total of 4 rounds flown in distance and some speed thrown in at the end for good measure.

9 participants, the F3B team Craig, Michelle & Dion, and then Wolf, Peter Eagle, Rodney, Piet, Derek and for one slot Ian. We missed you Peter Joffe! What happened, you did not pitch? Hope you can make it next Saturday!

A huge thanks must go to all you guys for offering up your time to help the F3B team with their practice. Distance is the one section of F3B where the teams does not get a lot of practice and needs other pilots to fly against.

BERG will be hosting another practice session on Saturday 16th from 11h00 onwards. This is the last of the F3B practice session before the team starts preparing to leave for the World Champs next month. Therefore, we would like to see a much bigger turnout, so we can send the team off in grand style. If you can make it, please try and be there. The team really needs your help and support.

Another big thanks must go the the long suffering "Base B" flagmen. Gordon, Heinrich & Tony. Here seen stocking up on some much needed sustenance before the next stint at Base B. Guys, without you F3B distance cannot happen. It is people like you that are willing to give of your time to help others that make all this possible. Thanks a million!

And last but not least, another thanks to Martie for providing us with food and drinks yet again. You have set a wonderful standard that will be be hard to beat. It's so great to get a hot cup of coffee or soup on those chilly mornings and the burgers and sarmies are great.
