IMAC @ Galatea – 2018 NZ Series – Round 2

Round 2 of the North Island IMAC Series held in Galatea “G-Town” Feb 24/25 2018.

Galatea Panarama shot. Click to zoom in and see Taff’s super mowing job !!

We were lucky with the weather again. Feb events were hampered by Cyclone Season. Awatoto Warbirds was a bit avg, and the following weekend Tokoroa Jets was a wash out. However right at the end of Feb, we got a brilliant weekend. Its about time our luck changed right !!

Kerry Nichols emerged from wherever he has been hiding for the last couple of years, and was first on the scene early Friday, ready for some practise. Jack Mounsey who is currently “a G-Town local” mowed the strip, a huge pit area, plus all around the club house and accom setup. Well done Taff, you did a good job !! hows ya’ thumb ?

Ewan and Rodney got there late Friday, and the rest of us made our way to G-Town on Saturday morning. After some initial practise flights we got started with known rounds, and flew the rest of the day out in nice conditions.

Sportsman and Basic guys

Saturday night, Baldrick impressed us with his “Spag Boll” special, and we had dinner outside the aeroclub with sunset in the back ground. Then something different, a field trip to Jack Mounsey’s place of work, a local hangar, where he is in the process of recovering a fullsize “Rans”. Just a big model really !! Everyone was pretty impressed with the job so far.

Sunday, grey skies to start the day, soon burned off to blue and zero wind. Gavin Madsen and Steve Sherbourne flew down from Hamilton in Gavin’s homebuilt ultralight thing, can’t remember what its called. He took Baldrick up for a spin in it at lunchtime. We flew unknowns, followed by more known, and wrapped it all up at about 3:30.

Tony Christiansen has given his S-Bach an engine change since the last outing, and he now has a bit more welly. Just needs to work on those spins !! But improved his scores by about 15% throughout the weekend . Kerry Nichols has clearly been out practising, and gained an promo point in Sportsman. Intermediate calls fella !! We haven’t seen Jeff Winters for a long time, he joined us on Sunday for a go flying his Carf 2.6m 260.

Bogan and Grommet

 

 

Intermediate was won by Rodney Ford, Jack Mounsey flying Baldricks SU-29 managed to edge ahead of Ewan Galloway for 2nd place in the final known round. Both Rodney, Jack and Ewan all getting promo points. Maybe it won’t be long before we one of these guys is ready to try Advanced. Baldrick provided plenty of entertainment as usual, and was stoked to make it home with a trailer in one piece. Maybe the trailer hoodoo is broken ?

Intermediate guys

Jarrod Briggs … remember that guy ? Yep he came and flew Unlimited for the first time in over a year, and considering the zero of practise, by the end of the weekend had the unlimited schedule looking pretty good, scoring a 74% on his final known sequence. If you’ve been wondering what he’s been up to …. girls, and jet ski’s … enough said.

The next contest is down in the Hawkes Bay, at the Awatoto site,  20/21/22 April. Mark your calendar now, this is going to be a combined event, so it will be a busy weekend. The final Galatea IMAC event for this summers season is two weeks later in May.

See you there !!

Kerry got his Nats trophy !!!

[pt] – “Points” (aka, regional points) are explained below.
 


[pt] – Points are computed as follows:

Each pilot gets a set number of points, based on their ranking (1st place, 2nd place, etc.).
Specifically:

  • A 1st place win gets 5 points
  • A 2nd place win gets 4 points
  • A 3rd place win gets 3 points
  • A 4th place win gets 2 points

In addition, each pilot gets bonus points for each competitor defeated, based on their ranking (1st place, 2nd place, etc.).
Specifically:

  • A 1st place win gets an additional 3 points
  • A 2nd place win gets an additional 2 points
  • A 3rd place win gets an additional 1 point
  • A 4th place win gets an additional 1 point

Note: Flights without a scale pilot and panel installed are assessed a penalty.
In this report, no pilots were assessed the missing pilot/panel penalty.
