Samba Cup 2020 - F5J
Contest Eurotour and World Cup
This years Samba Cup is over.
Thanks to all our friends that were here.
We had 6 preliminary rounds and
3 fly off in changing conditions and the overall winner was Radek Malcik (CZE
Prestige) in seniors, Adrian Gallet (FRA PlusX) as best junior (also 2nd in
senior) and Peter Feigl (GER Dynamic) as best over 65.
The weather have been favourable
for us this weekend so we got everything from calm soft conditions - warm and
bubbly thermalling to high winds. To get to the finals one had to cope with all
conditions and not always take the highest risks. Quick change of models and
ballast was also a good key for success.
This year we changed our field to a local motorcross field with electricity and
showers/toilets on site. It was a big plus especially this year as many wanted
to stay on site with their own caravans or tents. There was even a lot of free
spaces left with power connection this year. We feel the competition went very
well and there was no protests. Next year we hope to use the same field as it is
interresting and not so easy place to fly. No slopes available and no place were
you could be sure about some lift. It also gives us the opportunity to go for
140 pilots as the flight line is long enough. Food was arranged for all that
wanted 2x lunch and dinner and easy food and beverages was available in the
108 pilots from 12 Nations participated
Congratulations to all and a big thanks to all that was working for free.
The sponsors also gave us a huge and very fun traditional Tombola on Saturday
evening we really enjoyed.
