Shenington Regionals 2017: 1-9 July 2017

09:34 on Thu 3rd November


Hello All!!

Task A was flown yesterday and most got round, though there was a nasty patch of spreadout at the first TP which shot down a few of our pilots. All were safely retrieved and we had prize giving at 6pm. Pete Smith came third, Robert Hanks came second, and Tim Fletcher retained the lead and won the Regionals for the second year in a row. Well done Tim!

The Red Arrows treated us to a final formation fly past with smoke after we completed briefing!

The competition is now formally over for this year. Thanks to all our competitors for being such a great crowd. Hope to see you all again next year!
