BMFA League 3 60inch
With wind speeds of 15mph SSW forcast we all went straight round to the south bowl. We had 13 guys all itching to get a race in, because
the conditions we actually got were wind speeds in excess of 35mph and straight up the bowl!
We had decided to fly 4 rounds, followed by the Knock outs.
Mark Treble had a nightmare of a day breaking his NEW Halfpipe, and then his GV60 so mark bowed out in round 3.Thanks Mark for stopping and flagging for the rest of the time.
Neil Cornes also had some bad luck in pre race practice. He got wacked by Yours truley, which put his best model out. This did affect Neils performance. We would expect Neil To be further up the feild.
(Sorry Neil) You've Been Ronnied. really Sorry Neil.
Dave Tuckwood and myselcf brought a couple of extra models up for Jon Edison to fly, and once he got them dialed in, he had some close racing, Would be nice to see Jon join us in the 60" class. ( We could donate a couple of models to you Jon)
Abbo, Frank, and Myself where all flying Ron Broughtons Odersey's. and i've got to say I think they were the fastest models of the day.
Closley followed by Mike Evans and the all New Bluto (Available soon from Richard @ T9 Models)
Young Neil Sheard Was Flying Great all day. With an old Mcfast and full balast he was always in the Mix.
Dave Sykes,and Dave Beenland had a mixed day both winning rounds.
Next round Back down in Wales.

BMFA League 3 F3F
Hi All,Firstly and most importantly I would like to thank NYMRSC for holding the 3rd round of the BMFA F3F league. Without local club support, these events would not take place. Special thanks going to our CD Jon Edison including Mark Redsell, Rich Bago for also running the centre and Frank Hulton and Ronnie Lamp who were in charge of the basses.The Hole Of Horcum was the venue for the 3rd BMFA league event of the year and with Tinkers setting the standard a couple of weeks ago, it didn’t disappoint. We had plenty of wind with a few interruptions of rain during the day, but this didn’t stop a field of 30 pilots completing 6 rounds in total at Levisham. With the first round on the way, the times ranged between low forties to low fifties, before the HOH slope record was broken with a 32.00sec by Martin Newnham which won the first round. It was clear that conditions were to improve as the day progressed and in the second round there were 3 times of 36.xx with Mark Redsell taking all the points, just squeezing in front of Joel West and Peter Gunning. Keith Woods took round 3 with a 38.13sec but again Mark was not far behind with a 38.46sec.By round 4 things started to really get moving, Peter Gunning completed a 34.03 only to be beaten by Joel’s 33.17. This wasn’t to be the end of the round as Mark Redsell reset the HOH slope record with a 31.30, but was closely followed by Paul Middleton with a 31.37sec.Mark Redsell was still not finished for the day with round 4 out of the way and already breaking the slope record for the second time that day, Mark again broke his own record with a 30.90sec. Clayton Landells took the final round completing a 36.19.To give you an idea there were 40 sub forty times set in the 6 rounds and I know many people achieved PB’s. I would be really interested to find out who achieved personnel best today so that everyone can be aware of the standard that was set by all the pilots.The results can be seen below but the top 3 results were:
1st Mark Redsell
2nd Joel West
3rd Peter Gunning
All three pilots stood out from the rest of the field, but Mark Redsell really set the standard with some fantastic flying on the day.
It was a great days flying and well worth the trip; I look forward to catching up with you all again soon and hopefully the conditions will be equally as good as today.
