This annual event was held at Inverkeithing on Sunday the 12th of October in memory of our long time club member and was to be the eighth time competed for, (Bob died ten years ago).
Early morning heavy mist burnt off to leave ideal flying conditions and so following “warm up” flights the competition began at 11:30. Six entrants fought for the trophy this year and the “order of play” was:- Jimmy Pinkerton followed by Peter Millar, Iain Ward, Eddie Burr, Ian Galt, Willy Wallace for each of the three rounds.
Only two minor mechanical faults occurred during the whole competition and no models were damaged. The usual rapid banter prevailed throughout the competition (as one would expect).
Bobs Widow Mary kindly presented the memorial shield to the winner Ian Galt. The final scores were:- Ian Galt 2161, Iain Ward 2037, Eddie Burr 2023, Jimmy Pinkerton 1990, Peter Millar 1985, Willy Wallace 1597.
