Summary Report.


On behalf of the contestants  I wish to thank everyone that participated and assisted with all the field preparations, timing, etc.    Paul Bedford did an excellent job in adjudicating the competition.

Results:(Summary Report) (Approx. Times - Paul will provide specific times later.


   1.  Barrie Shandel - Final Time:   30 minutes.

        Barrie accomplished his win for the day using a Fox 15 BB Schneurle Engine and only 4.5 oz of fuel !!!

   2.  Gerry Boyd: 4 minutes.(Bruce Duncan flying)

        The entry used 2 fuel tanks with capacity of   approx. 8 oz. However, due to over-compressed Super Tiger 15 diesel engine and some fuel feed problems        the entry only used about 1-1/12 oz.  Of fuel.   Resulting in a 4 min. run.  With a few minor changes - Gerry will be competitive at the next Record Trials On May 22nd.

3.    Dennis Matthews

       Dennis had prepared a "Mystery Ship"......which is   still a mystery as last minute issues resulted in a D.N.S.   -   however,as always, Dennis could be a threat at the next record trials in three (3) weeks at Rice Mill.

With the warm weather - we were able to conclude the competition by 12:30 and

Everyone adjourned to the comfort of the Country Meadows Golf Club.
