N v S results hot off the press

North v South CONTEST RESULTS (Top 2 results gave the trophy to Kzn)

1. 78.90% Michel Leusch (Minivec)
2. 71.92% Russ Conradt (Shongiloma)
3. 71.68% Christo le Roux (Aldij)
4. 71.45% Dave Greer (Minivec)
5. 69.17% Kev Farr (Vector 3)
6. 64.56% Jeff Steffen (Aldij)
7. 61.95% Simon Nelson (OD Weaver)
8. 57.11% Ryan Nelson (OD Weaver)

Second to fourth separated by less than 0.5%!

1. Michel Leusch (Jeff Steffen's Zagi)
2. Luke Johnstone

The competitor count is a reflection of the hard core folk who hung in to the bitter end on Sunday, rather than the surprisingly large number of folk who attended over the three days (14 initial contest entries). Friday was bliss SW practice time at Inanda, Saturday wind strong but lift light and Sunday at Switchblade downright Berg wind challenging! Simon's bright idea of the Zagi x 4 racing generated a dozen or so racers who had a blast, a useful idea for keeping things ticking along during "non aerobatic" air.

Reports and lotsa pics will follow on the Toss and this blog, keep a watch out. Special mention must be made of Russ's huge time, money and stress input to the event (not to forget Mandy and Kelly Conradt's magic hospitality), along with Dennis Bird for CD support for Sunday - as well as Luke and Dean for judging. Ever cheerful Adi Critten and Rudi Smook made it all that bit more special. Our appreciation to Tosser's Jeff Steffen, Christo le Roux and Kev Farr for flying up from the Cape for the three days - they have promised a bigger mob for next year, to wrest the trophy back from the Sharkies!
