2006 Fun Fly Masters -- report scrounged from Warren Gardiner, photo from "Deathbunny007"

2006 funfly masters happened again this weekend, tons of fun. It sure is quite a change from the usual with the sportsman class now. Started off with cloud cover and some drizzle and remained overcast most of the weekend, keeping the weather at a nice comfortable level, and for a change not much wind. The flying was at it's usual high standard again this year with Chris Harris taking first with some really spectacular flying including a spot of afterhours hovering and torque-rolling inside the club house.

Congrats to the organisers, as usual a truly enjoyable experience. I only managed a ninth with my muskiet, and if it were'nt for some genius's idea to have an F3A event thrown in I would've done a little better, muskiet got no fus, can't do 4 point rolls.;-p

We had a bit of an interesting time with the limbo, the wool limbo line just would not break for anyone, with the end result being some impromptu prophangs and sudden stops. Most made it through though. Gotta feel sorry for the guys who hurt their planes on this one, Hennis de Klerk for one, 90size ultrastick got stuck on the line and had to ditch to prevent going into the crowd, ouch.

Anyhow, I can't remember the exact final placings, but in open class it was:
1st: Chris Harris
2nd: Shaun Fraser
3rd: Matt Hirst
