Four people entered 60s Coupes in the Birmingham Coupe event at Nth Luffenham, and my My Coupe placed second  overall in F1G in the company of a lot of modern machinery. In fact another basic balsa/wire/tissue model placed third. The winner was an enormous model with a huge prop and 16 strand of 1/8" motor

Congratulations Bill, you must feel like a king tonight  Cheesy So it was worthwhile to prepare 18 motors.
Do you have some pictures from you and the other entry's?

Thanks Urs, and I used about 8 of them! No pictures I'm afraid. With vintage coupe as well, it was 8 flights in 4 hours and some long walks

I was one of the 4 that Bill mentioned. I would also like to congratulate him on his excellent flying. I flew my Joe Bilgri Mini shown in reply #522 above. I did not fly particularly well but would just say that it was the model's first contest and still needs further trimming. Conditions were quite difficult - nobody maxed out.

Mark, my friend (Glenn Grell) and I (Bruce Hannah) got to put up our postal flights today. It was well worth the 240 mile trip. Just a perfect day,we had a great time with our 60's coupe's. Glenn will be e mailing you the results and maybe a couple photo's. This was the first flyable day since Nov. longest\coldest winter ever. Thanks for getting us out there.      Bruce

As mentioned in the previous post, Glenn Grell sent these photos of Bruce Hannah and Glenn of the Willamette Modelers Club, flying their '60s vintage Coupes yesterday (3-12-17) in Oregon.   Bruce was flying a My Coupe and Glenn was flying his Auntie Freez.  Looks wet!  Good job guys!  Thanks for getting out there and doin' it.

I finally managed to make my coupe flights with my Batiuk. This was its first outing, so I was trimming as I flew. Conditions were good, the model needs a few little snags sorting out, but flies nicely. Lets hope Mark will run it again.

I plan to start my Nikolina construction probably this Thursday. Sure want to have it done and maybe flown during the winter here in Texas. Time will tell.
Sorry but no progress made. Don't have a big field so not able to enter yet. My friend who does fly coupe lives far away and travels many miles in order to participate. 60's coupe sounds interesting to him, tho.

Done  Grin Grin Grin

I managed to do the 5 flights, no flying shots as the only other guy flying Wake's was to busy with his models and timing my one's. What a shame to be in only two person to fly FF in such a large field.

The 2016-2017 window for official flying in the Northern Hemisphere for the 1960s Coupe d'Hiver Postal is closed.  If there are modelers who have flown but have not yet sent your time card to me, please do so now.  Official results will be posted here in the next few days.

As always, my thanks to those who have participated.

Here is Gavin Manion's French Coupe whose name I've forgotten. He missed the deadline. Goes well. More tail ribs than a herring.

I've told Mark that my scores are wrong. If I'd done 5 maxes I'd have carried on!
Thanks for this again Mark. It's been a great idea and has shown some of us that a simple model can compete with more sophisticated (and very expensive) machinery. Much more important is to build it straight, trim it, turn up, wind it right up,  keep going to the end and chuck it into a thermal.
Entries seem to be picking up slowly but here in the UK, I think a limiting factor is the winter flying. We only have two meetings over the period and finding a site otherwise is not easy.
Well done the winners - great performances!

Yes, as Bill mentions above, I had an error in the spreadsheet.  I'm retired and away from Excel too long.   Anyway I've sent revised table to Ratz and we should have the corrected standings and scores shortly.

My apology.

Thanks Dave.  Thanks also to the 8 competitors who took part and their timers.  I will try to get the plaques finished in a few weeks and get them mailed out.
