2019 Triple Crown - Ireland - 13/14/15 September 2019
« on: 04, June 2019, 12:13:02 pm »
We have received an invitation to field a team to take part in the Triple Crown in Ireland.
The England team will comprise of 4 pilots selected in order of ranking from the 2018 BMFA Open League a 5th pilot will take a place in the International team.

A copy of the 2018 league table is attached.

In order to allow time for potential team members to make diary adjustments please indicate whether you would like to be involved or not.
To be fair to all I would ask for your responses to be made by Friday14th June.


Gordon James who is coordinating the event at his home club has sent the following note with more detailed information:-

The Triple Crown will be held at Carron Model Flying  club 13,14 and 15 of September which is located in Tipperary Town near the Limerick Junction.
We are in the process of inviting a top European guest pilot and judge Nico Bleas.
We intend to run the comp with 4 rounds with a option of 5. The round to be flown on the Sunday to count for final result. We intend to have a P21 judging seminar with the guest pilot to fly it as well.
Round one to start Fri 13th at 14:00.
Round Two and Three (Four) to start at 08:00 Saturday 14 th Final round on Sunday to start at 08:00. Weather will always be a factor in dictating how the rounds will run.
A formal function is booked at the   National Ballykisteen Hotel on the Saturday night 3 course meal at €27-50 a head.
For those who wish to fly we have a vehicle that will travel with a dedicated large model aeroplane trailer from Shannon on the Friday and return all the model boxes on the Sunday. The models can also be locked up at the field.

Regards

Adrian 

GBRCAA Comp Sec.

Hi all,

To add something special to the event the IMAAA have decided to invite a guest Judge and Pilot.
 
The guest judge will be Nicholas Bleas from France.  He will judge at the event and will deliver a judges course for the P20/21 after flying on the Sunday afternoon approx. 13:00- 15:00.  Note:  The competition will take priority so the timing of the judges course is subject to change if we have a prolonged break in flying due to rain on Fri, Sat or Sun.
 
The guest pilot will be Lassi Nurila who is currently placed 2nd in Europe and placed 6th at the 2017 WC’s.  Lassi will compete in the individual section only, as an additional pilot.  He will fly demo flights each day and will fly the P20/21 schedules after the judges course on Sunday.

Hope to see you there

Shane

It seems the Triple Crown isn’t generating much interest these days to the extent with a week to go no country has posted its team selection here.


So for the record, the Scottish Team is:


Malcolm Balfour
Steve Burgess
Malcolm Harris
Wolfgang Schiebel


Our International Team Member


David Balfour


Our Judge


Ross Donovan


Wishing all those taking part a safe journey to Tipperary and a good comp!

Hi all, an oversight on my part ,James Murphy is the 4th member on the international team.
Lassi is flying as an independent pilot.

Quick update.
I believe Chris, Ian and Thomas are already over in Ireland. Adrian and I have just boarded the flight from Manchester after a protracted but relatively fuss free check in. Hopefully onsite by 16:00 today and possibly get a flight in.


That’s all for now
