Team Glider 26th April 2015
By Chris Rouse
The fourth team glider competition was held on harden moor on Sunday 26th April after cancelling due to the weather on the Saturday being dull and windy. The event attracted only a small number of competitors and are listed below with the final scores.
The objective of the competition was to get airborne a glider by conventional tow behind a powered plane or by piggy back, only piggy back was used this time.
Points were earned for every one second airborne plus spot landing for tug and spot landing for the glider less double points lost for every second over the target time of five minutes.
Maximum available points 400.

Chuckie 1st Oliver Firth 2nd Adrian Firth 3rd Harry Waddington
Aerobatic Comp 1st Oliver Firth Joint second Mick Banks/Harry Waddington
Glider Tow 1st John Robinson/Mick Banks 2nd Nick Hempel/Mick Banks
This years Glider Tow comp had its usual attrition rate and at one point we thought that we would not have a enough models to run the event. Thanks to the wonders of super glue we finally got several flights in and a clear winning team of Mick Banks and John Robinson, well done to both.
WW1 Centenary Commemoration Fly in, once again we have another event affected by the weather this time the wind blew, but this did not stop Peter Shackelton and Harry Waddington from flying their WW1 planes and a fine display they put on, especially when you consider the scale wind speed will have been close to a 100mph.
See photo gallery for slideshow pictures of these events.
If you have any photos or videos of our events please email them to me or put them on the forum for us all to see.
Saturday 26th saw only the second comp of this year to be completed, in spite of the unseasonably cold weather and even a little bit of drizzle, we did have a good turn out of spectators and 4 keen competitors, all of whom flew one round of a basic aerobatic schedule.
The first three places were very close only being covered one point, with young Oliver Firth coming out as winner, flying his artf ultimate very well. In second place we had the joint placing of Harry Waddington and Mick Banks both of whom flew particularly well, Mick’s performance was particularly good to see, which apart form one small mishap he could have found him self in a fly off with Oliver for first place.
Well done to all.
