And the winner is

Denis Campbell receives the trophy from Comp Director Richard Crockett.
Lots of excitement for the last day of the comp.  Big showers, dead skies and dark streets dictated the route.  Most made it through the first band of showers to the first turnpoint at Calvert Junction then set off south into wind.  Some got as far as Newbury trying to get around the dead skies, but eventually gravity won the day. Great co-operation from our friends on the ground at Thame for the four of us that landed there, and fun for the tug pilots doing aerotow retrieves around the showers.

Jim White and Denis Campbell battled it out to win the day with just about equal distance. Wayne Aspland won Third place .

Denis has won the comp with Jim in second place.

We must also mention Ayala Truelove from Lasham who came third in her Libelle and Stuart Law from Bicester who came fourth in his souped up LS4, Despite flying low handicap gliders they both really put Denis and Jim under pressure.  This showed that the Handicap Tasks really do level the playing field.  We will all get together again next year and the battle will be repeated.
