The Northern Area Playing Fields at Washington proved to be a testing venue this weekend. Light breezes on Saturday prevented a grid demo going ahead on Saturday despite sterling efforts from the potential participants earlier in the day.

Sunday provided some really difficult conditions with wind speed variations occurring very quickly. We ended up flying the vented 1.5s to their practical limits high wind wise yet within seconds, literally, the wind speed dropped to the point that they were not viable.

Thanks to all the fliers who participated in a 5 x 3 grid (edit 5 columns, 3 rows) called by Jacob (not flying) at the end of the afternoon.

Hi Felix,

A big thank you to you and your team for making a challenging weekend into a very special and memorable weekend. We really enjoyed the opportunity to fly grid and are still floating on air. Awesome.

I second what Vince says. Put on a great show, even if the conditions weren't optimum.

And for the record videos of The Decorators 'Revolution' and 'Come Together' routines at the event.

Keep up the good work.

Chris
