HTL #1 at ETB

HTL #1 for 2008 stared on Sunday with reasonably good but sometimes tricky thermal condition. The BERG club fielded 3 teams and at this stage it looks like the BERG-1 team ended in 3rd place. Lionel will update the rankings on the MGA Blog later this week.

As far as individual placing is concerned, our own his Truly, Sir Evan Lead Foot Shaw flew his own design Emoyeni into 2nd place. Well done Evan !!!.

At one stage Evan went so high that both Derek and I had to talk Evan down after his Emoyeni nearly got lost in the clouds.

Apart from that it looks like Evan has developed a new Landing technique (one wing tip low and then followed by a cartwheel maneuver into the spot).
Here are some pictures taken yesterday.

Right tip down and---

cartwheel into the spot for 100 points.
Rudi and Mike BERG Team 2

Peter and Herman (ETB)

Dion (ETB) Landing the conventional way.

After reading the HTL rules again Saturday, I decided not to enter my latest acquisition. Reason being that I just might have to much “Fire Power” but considering my placing yesterday might just want to implement in the next HTL event.

Hi Evan, Some time ago the Discuss launch was a big thing, maybe onday the cartweel landing is the next big thing. My new supra will not survive that.

Here Piet waar kry jy daai gun in jou agterjaart. EK soek ook een om die Baas-terts te blaas wat die f@#$%$#@ krag afsit elke dag.
