Unfortunately it was a very windy evening and a trophy should go to all those who attempted to fly; four decided to leave their models in the back of their cars. Douglass Barber (not Douglass Bader) came over from Preston with his Piper Cub and, although having to hand launch, put in four reasonable flights to take the Derek Wilson Trophy. Nick Bosditís BE12 B, usually putting in contest winning flights, could not manage it on the evening because of the very strong wind.† Bill Dennisís Avro 504K gradually started to lose structural integrity (coming to pieces!) and probably did its very last flight that evening.
Ray Hallís Chrislea Ace could not manage a takeoff in the strong wind and the wind got the better of it even from a hand launch. Ray didnít want to risk his Eddie Riding model so near Woodvale.

Thanks to John Thompson from the Northern Area for helping out with the judging.††
