Jane out-manoeuvres the men, again.

A great end to the instructor week, more feedback on that to follow in a future post.  A good day for the increasingly popular Easter Egg Cup Aerobatic competition. All ten competitors flew, with most electing to complete the Standard pattern.  Dave H went for the more advanced Cor Blimey sequence.
Many pilots had not done any more than a loop before the weekend, but thanks to some excellent coaching, and safety pilots, everyone posted a good score.
The top three were - 
1st  - 83.7% -  Jane Moore.
2nd - 78.7% - Rob Kehr
3rd  - 78.1% - Chris Collett

For those that can speak Aresti, the sequence diagrams are shown below. See Mr Saw for a full translation.

A heated debate took place at prize-giving about who was the best aerobatic coach, perhaps next year there will also be a prize for best team coach.  
Jane won for the second year running; many were heard muttering about how many years one person can win before moving up in to the Cor Blimey class.

Thanks as always to Graham Saw for organising the event, and to Charles Baker from Lasham for scoring. 

Club Chairman William Parker presents Jane Moore with the Easter Egg Aerobatics Trophy.
Looks like he is keeping hold of that Easter Egg though!
In other news - 315 flew two XC tasks in one day - including first landout of the year at Bicester.
