100S Cup: 14th Sept 2014
Conditions were very weird today. Wind was 10 -15 coming from the SE, which usually produces wave lift, but today it was far from consistent.
Due to illness, work and holidays we were a sadly depleted group, but 5 pilots turned out to contest the rescheduled 100S Cup. As Wayne was laid up in a hospital bed, Bill Scott ran the
event. As a trophy event we ran 5 rounds of 8mins, with one discard and top two to contest a two round fly off.

The top 3 contested a fairly tight event with Frank, recovering from a hand injury, and Ronnie, flying a new algebra for the first time struggled a bit with the conditions.

At the end of the 5 rounds the scores were as follows. (The discard is in yellow)



Andrew and Tommy contested the fly off, with Andrew going much farther forward to work weak lift in both rounds



Andrew wins the 100S Cup, to his obvious delight!
