Slope Combat Contest and BBQ Night
2 November 2008

The second slope combat contest for the year 2008 was successfully held in Clearwater Bay flying site on Sunday 2 November 2008. The wind was moderate to strong easterly, so it was certainly a good day for combat. A total of 15 pilots joined the contest. There were many spectators and visitors to watch the contest with lot of applauses. The competitors were split into two groups; each group has 8 or 7 pilots. Two stages of contest were conducted. There were two rounds in the first stage, the score from first round was used to decide the groupings in the second round. In the second round, the top half of a group from the first round will combat with the bottom half of the other group. Then the total score of a pilot from these two rounds were counted toward the entry list for the final stage. There were 10 pilots qualified for the final stage which also had two rounds.  The total scores from the two rounds in the final stage will be used to determine the winners.  

The contest was started at about 2:00pm after a lengthy wait for all pilots to arrive. The wind was consistently good through out the whole contest. By the time at 4:20pm, four rounds were completed. The Champion who took the title of the most merciful killer is Uncle Chan, who although looks like being a very kind old gentlemen, was indeed a serious killer for sometimes. His record of number of knock downs was 56 in round 4, which accounted to almost one knock-down for each 10-second period, amazing! Next on the line is the last year plane killer champion, Ken28, who indeed hasfirm goal of being an invincible killer. The third place went to Lee Man who seems to be loosing out his will to kill recently, may be he is getting more excited in F3F than in combat. Each winner has both a beautiful trophy and a prize sponsored by Windrider R.S.B. Aviation Co. Ltd. Thanks the boss of Windrider, Mr. Lou Tsz Ming, for his generosity. Finally, the booby prize went to Stanley Chan, who, despite of working hard to avoid being a mountain goat, is still an easy prey for the killers! Thank you for your participation and of course our sponsor. See you next year when the combat diehards meet again!

HKRCSS also organized a BBQ get together night after the contest. The venue is Flower BBQ ground in Tai Po Tsai in Sai Kung. Over 40 fellow r/c pilots together with their families, most of them are children, attended this wonderful event. The kids were as happier as their parents because they were given each a toy gun for their own style of gunship combat!  Good food and friendly discussion marked the enjoyable faces of our fellow pilots after a day of intensive killing, cheers!
