BEGINNERS RALLY AND PRECISION TRAINING CAMP
Ladybrand – 12-14 May 2000
By Norman Dixie
Well, the week-end has come and gone – with great success thanks to wonderful weather and all of you who supported it.
A very special thank you to Deon van den Berg for making a special trip on Friday morning 12th May to ensure that the computer was set up correctly. Also sincere thanks to Pieter Grobler who ran the system for the first time.
Without Ron Stirk, Hans Schwebel, Nellis Nel and Walter Walle, this event would have been a flop! Thank you for your support and for the help regarding the lecture, and for flying with the beginners.
OPEN CLASS results were
1st Nellis Nel 122 Penalties,
2nd Ron Stirk 157 Penalties,
3rd Walter Walle 266 Penalties,and
4th Hans Schwebel 325 Penalties
Walter Walle was the BULL on the landings with 0 penalties.
The beginners participated in two sections:
1st Andre du Toit 1993 Penalties, and
2nd James Lidderd 3940 Penalties
1st Ben Behm 1147 Penalties, and
2nd Dana Bensch 3830 Penalties
Well done guys. Special thanks to Rob, Alwyn and Ian Stevens who flew as observers.
I was a little disappointed that we did not have more beginners, but thank you again to the Beginners/Novices. Hope to see you Brits at the National Championships, entering in the Sportsmen’s Class now that you know how the whole thing works.
Brits will give you the opportunity to improve your performance until you feel confident to enter the open class.
