2014 Nearly 1/2-A Fun Stunt Event
June 22, 2014, Richmond, B.C.
The 2014 version of the Vancouver Gas Model Club's NEARLY 1/2A FUN STUNT EVENT has come and gone with a couple of new award winners.
The entry level was down slightly because of a local aviation event that several of our members attended, but we still had a good turnout. The weather cooperated with mostly sunny skies and light winds for most of the day.
We had Mustangs, hurricanes, spitfires, corsairs, a P38, and several navy planes as well. We had 2 crashes, the P38 did what it did last year and one of the other models decided to dive straight into the runway. All the other flights were successful including one doing a figure 8 as his maneuver of choice, not bad for a small low powered model, which helped carry him into first place.
First place went to Denis Cousineau
This is turning into a fun and popular event and next year I expect to see two or three more entrants; time will tell.
