Great result at F3N Nats

What a weekend the BMFA Nats was! We took a couple of days break afterwards hence only just getting round to writing this up.

The first two rounds (one of set manoeuvres & one of freestyle) took place on the Saturday. Conditions were challenging as they always are at Barkston Heath with winds freshening as the day progressed. Dave came second in the sets round & 5th in the freestyle. At the end of day one, he was 2nd overall. We spent Saturday evening in the pub restaurant putting together a new routine for Sunday’s freestyle round. The next day our efforts paid off as he placed 2nd in the 2nd rounds of both sets & freestyle. This meant his podium position was secure & he finished in second place overall, only 3% behind Duncan Osborn’s scores. Third & fourth positions were keenly fought between Stuart Mott & Rob Turnbull with Stuart narrowly beating Rob to 3rd place. Needless to say, we were very pleased with this result.
