Bendigo July 08

The weather on Saturday was not as bad as was forecast and although cold it was quite good flying conditions. "Someone" forgot to bring the computer we use for all of the timing and scoring so we had to dig out some stop watches etc. to run the QM event. Our champion CD set off at 8:00am for a 5 hour round trip to get the computer to use the rest of the weekend.....
We were down on numbers for this weekend - maybe the weather forecast had something to do with this?

QM was run on Saturday morning followed by F400 and Q500 in the afternoon. These were both flown on the FAI size course. It was good to see several of the Bendigo members have a go in Q500.
On Saturday night most of us went to Phil Organ's place for a great feed and a bit of a chin wag.

After heavy rain and strong wind on Saturday night, Sunday morning looked like we may be able to get some racing in. However after an initial dry period we then had showers coming through all day. I don't think the temperature was above 9 degrees C all day. Not much of a day for racing and quite a few people had trouble getting scores on the board in these conditions.
