2011 Competition Season End

Once again the weeks have flown by & we are now almost at the end of October. We had an enjoyable weekend at the 3D UK Championships in Tewkesbury at the end of September. Unfortunately only one round of the freestyle, sets & music could be flown as rain delayed things severely on the Sunday. There was no time for any fly-off flights which was a shame as we were hoping to improve on Dave's 5th place - never mind, there's always next year!

Next came the F3N Team trials at Gumley on 2nd October. The busy season was starting to take its toll & after a couple of mistakes (including clipping the tail in the 1st freestyle round) Dave finished in 4th place giving him the Reserve team place. Congratulations to Duncan Osborne, Stuart Mott & Rob Turnbull for making it into the 1st British F3N team for next year's European Championships to be held in Germany.

We decided not to attend Charmouth this Autumn - it was just nice to have a full weekend at home - something we haven't had since August! We have however made our bookings for April next year so maybe we'll see you there

We finally managed to sort out our computer / email problems by the 2nd week of October. If you emailed us sometime during the last few days of September through to October 10th & didn't received a reply, I'm afraid that your correspondence has been lost - not ignored. Please contact us again with your query if that is the case. Thank you.

Even though temperatures are starting to drop (time to dig out your thermals perhaps) we've enjoyed some glorious Autumn days. We're taking a short family break from Mon. 24th - Fri. 28th October. This means that phone calls & emails won't be answered until our return. However, Mark is continuing with lessons in our absence. To book during the period that we are away, please telephone him direct on 07866 688279. Thank you.
