Triathlon Plus (Quadrathlon)

A warm sunny day greeted members for the annual CLAMF Aerosports Triathlon competition. (Webmaster: What happened to the planned 4-event quadrathlon?)

Triathlon is a multi-discipline event which requires pilots to compete in stunt, racing and combat scheduled over the course of the day. Combat was substituted with a speed event because of the wet ground conditions.

Competitors were challenged by the gusty wind at times although this made for some very exciting flying and the occasional contact with terra firma! The flying of racing and stunt models took place during the breaks with a traditional 'a la carte' BBQ making for an all round great day out.
