Story by Dave Harris with pictures by Wouter van Wyk & Mark Hoare
Christopher Harris who flies for Barnstormers Club in Kempton Park became National Fun Fly Champion for the seventh time by winning this, the 21st Fun Fly Masters held in Welkom. He also scored his second hat trick and won seven out of ten events, flown during the weekend.
A very windy weekend greeted the top eighteen pilots from all over South Africa who made the annual pilgrimage to the Free State to do battle in this the most exciting form of aeromodelling.
Welkom Model Aircraft Club staged another truly brilliant competition and are to be sincerely complimented on the professional and enthusiastic approach with which they always apply to running the Masters. The CD, judges and all W.M.A.C members take Fun Fly very seriously and this was the eighteenth time they have organised this prestigious event, and as such are true “masters” themselves. This year W.M.A.C ensured that even the evenings were full of fun by staging a professional dance show.
