CLOUD TRAMP POSTAL CONTEST 2009

 

Thank you all for your support and participation, which appears to be cyclical - 24 flyers in 2007, 34 in 2008 and now back to the 24 level once again. I hopefully look forward to the upswing once more in 2010!

I have posted the undernoted entries and scores to the CT event within the 18th WorldWide Postal, which closes June 30th, 2010. However, as you did not specifically enter the WWP as such, should you feel that you could better the scores posted here then please feel free to fly your CTís again before that date, and Iíll happily substitute and update the results in that contest.

In some instances it might be difficult to better the scores... an examination of the flight times show some consistently outstanding flights, though some are such that - notable as they may be - are discarded and do not affect the results - not least that near ten minute flight enjoyed by Joseph Pengilley.

 

I look forward to running this fun event once again next year (make a note - August 7th to September 30th 2010) and hope to welcome each one of you back again - and do try to talk someone else into building and flying a Cloud Tramp (or even into flying yours -no BOM rule, remember). If you forwarded scores on behalf of those without email addresses, please ensure they receive a copy of this report.

The main thing is that everyone had fun. Thereís no better motive or outcome.

Thank you again - one and all - and at this time of year may I wish you a very happy forthcoming holiday season - and good flying in 2009/2010, no matter what your F/F or other interests might be.
