Gate post broken

Sun Aug 27, 2017 8:42 pm by Gary M Jones

Just in case anyone is not aware, the main gate post at the field entrance is broken at its base just at ground level. ( the bolt side post) The post is only supported by the fencing attached to it. If the fencing fails then the post will fall and …

ClubNight - 3rd Sept. Limbo Comp!

Post by Andy Sayle on Tue Aug 25, 2015 11:05 am

Hi folks.

Time for another informal club competition, on the september club night.  We are revisiting the Limbo comp this time, pretty much the same as last time (with the exception of a less robust limbo line!), with the same rules:


  • There shall be no restriction on what models can be flown in the competition, helicopters, multirotors, fixed wing, gliders, anything!  
  • There shall be a limbo ribbon strung across the strip, at around 6 feet above the ground.  
  • Pilots shall fly one at a time, and they shall take off, and when ready they shall start their limbo attempts by shouting "GO!".  loudly.
  • When Go is shouted, a 2 minute timer shall begin.  
  • The number of successful passes under the tape shall be counted within the 2 minute period by an officially appointed judge, i.e. Me.
  • whomever gets the most successful passes, wins.
  • A successful limbo pass shall be one that passes under the ribbon (and does not break it, or pass above it!).
  • The passes will only count going in one direction
  • Touching the floor on a limbo pass voids that pass too.
  • The official Judges decision will be final.
  • Gyros, and flight aids are permitted.


I may do some kind of extra bonus too.

See you there.

The official weather forecast is looking favourable for the 2nd official limbo competition on Thursdays official clubnight.

Anyone coming, and what are you flying?

Personally, I like the semi-transparent look, however the choice of scheme is entirely up to you, the owner Very Happy

Nice one guys.

So we don't use the same indestructable limbo tape of mine, does anyone have a couple of old VHS tapes they wouldn't mind getting rid of? We can use that for the official limbo tape then...

Cheers
Andy

"When Go is shouted, a 2 minute timer shall begin"

I'll have an official review of that rule today. In reality, the timer will start when I press the official button Wink

To be honest, I quite liked the official original tape, the double hard stuff. I like the idea of "killer" limbo, touch the tape, and your plane will be killed. It could be an interesting one for the next club night perhaps?

hell yes. The official official will be there at approximately 6pm. Comp starts as soon as the limbo poles are erected, and finished when everyone is bored...

Big prizes this week too, including a fully featured hexacopter to the winner of the "most like Andy Kaz's flying" category....

Great fun as planned - one or two usual suspects didn't arrive / fly - may have been a tad windy for some, but all in all lots of fun, which is of course the object of the games ;-)
Think I retained my crown for fixed wing single rotor category with 16 passes was it ?
We will have to wait on the official results Very Happy
Well done to young Brendon on best MR result - Zaidy came a not so close second LOL

He shall be henceforth known as Brendan I feel....

Cracking night again guys, thanks for coming along and having a go!  As always, I have been beavering away compiling the official results spreadsheet (see below).  Congrats to Brandon for winning overall, with Tim coming a close second.  



I think we may have to squeeze one more comp in on a Thursday night, before the nights draw in too much.  Suggestions on a postcard!

Andy

I see the usual nonsensical scoring and classification system has been deployed !

The official scoring system is a work of genius I'll have you know.  It's simple.  1 official point awarded for a successful pass under the limbo ribbon.  Then an extra official bonus point awarded in the categories shown, as decided by the official official for the night.  I.e. me.

What's nonsensical about that?! Wink

I have just spotted a typo though, you were first in your class Tim...  Hold on, will correct..
