Final Comments

I did have a baptism of fire as a new CD with the plans to have the North/South runway torn up just prior to the comps.  David Elthringham of the HRCC was flexible and did a great job in rearranging schedules to suit us and I thank David and the council very much on behalf of all of us.  Then we had the floods, then we lost the use of a tug and finally we had a week of very average gliding weather. However we flew every second day so all was not lost.  It was good to see the surprise on some of the faces of the class winners and of course the achievement trophy.  However I did enjoy the job so I will be back next year for the second (and final) year as CD and Horsham Week 2012 will start Saturday Feb 4th and run to Saturday Feb 11th, 2012.  I hope to see all participants of this year back again and will work hard to get the numbers up.

I would like to thank the HFC staff, Lorelle and her dedicated team and the organising committee for their wonderful work during the week.
