Electric Fun-Fly 14 May

This is what was at stake - selected wines (selected from the "on special offer" shelf) and a prestigeous trophy (made by Dave Harbour from solid stainless steel) ........
 .... Mike Smith was somewhat pleased to learn that it was he, that had won the trophy .......
 .... and here he is being presented with said trophy by the club chairman John Morse.
Congratulation to Mike for a sterling performance.

Mike swept (sorry) into the lead after winning the spot-landing and climb-and-glide rounds for which he walked away with bottles of wine.
Mike Wilson won the ring-drop round .......
..... and Guy Bowden won the limbo round with 4 passes under the tape, no mean feat.

The competition was expertly organised by Andy Hibbert (left) who stood in for Alan Smedley (aka Captain Pugwash) who was otherwise occupied sailing his yacht round Britain. Andy seen here having his calulations being scrutinised by experts, while others did .....

......... running repairs.
